Application: Magnetic push-button (Patent ID: US20230377821A1)

The patent filed by Thales SA describes a magnetic push-button design that includes a fixed body and a movable body with a magnetic element and notching tooth for generating a push force through magnetic cooperation. A magnetic detector is also included to measure movements of the movable body along the axis of movement. The design allows for stable translation positions, detection profiles for button activation, and the possibility of multiple notching teeth and magnetic sensors along the axis of movement.

The magnetic push-button design also incorporates features such as a detection profile with an offset for button activation, equidistant distribution of notching teeth and magnetic sensors, and the use of magnetic or ferromagnetic supports for the elements. Additionally, the design includes travel stops for end-of-travel positions, functional elements on the surface for operator interaction, and a supplementary force controller with an electromagnetic coil. An additional switch placed in the center of the second body can be activated by a rod attached to the first body. Overall, the patent outlines a magnetic push-button design with various innovative features and configurations to enhance functionality and user experience.
