Abstract

<P>INCITATEUR DE LIMITATION VOLONTAIRE DE COURANT ELECTRIQUE CHEZ LES PARTICULIERS.</P><P>CET APPAREIL COUPLE AU RESEAU ELECTRIQUE DE L'APPARTEMENT EMET UN SON INTERMITTANT MODULE DE DIFFERENTES MANIERES POUR RENSEIGNER L'UTILISATEUR SUR LES CONSOMMATIONS EN COURS ET L'INCITER PAR UNE GENE SONORE LEGERE A REDUIRE SA CONSOMMATION.</P>
The appts. emits a mildly annoying sound when a user exceeds a predetermined energy consumption. The circuit is connected to the electrical supply adjacent to the meter. The connections are made by electromagnetic or optical coupling and the circuit produces two sounds. One sound is intermittent with an amplitude and frequency which varies with the electrical consumption. A second sound signal is emitted to indicate that another piece of equipment has been switched on. Controls enable the minimum threshold consumption to be set as well as the maximum level of operation and also the sound amplitude.
