  • Patent number: 4330103
    Abstract: Earthquake protector for protecting apparatus such as a circuit-breaker. The apparatus to be protected is mounted on a support member (2) which is connected to a plate assembly via jack 4. The plate assembly is supported on a base member (8,9) itself firmly connected to a foundation 1 on the ground. The plate assembly comprises a first plate (3) and a second plate (17) which are horizontally movable relative to the base member. The first plate has a first sole plate (5) on its lower surface which engages a second sole plate (7) on the other surface of the base member. Said sole plates are arranged to present a very low coefficient of friction to relative horizontal motion. The second plate (17) is fast with the first plate (3) and is connected therebelow by a connection means (15) passing through corresponding openings in the sole plates (5 and 7).
