  • Patent number: 9770610
    Abstract: The invention relates to an emergency oxygen device for passenger of an aircraft, including a chemical oxygen generator including a chemical oxygen source and an activation unit for initiating a chemical reaction of the chemical oxygen source producing oxygen, at least two oxygen masks each connected with the chemical oxygen generator for receiving an oxygen fluid flow from the chemical oxygen generator after the activation unit has initiated the chemical reaction, and a mechanical activation assembly for activating the activation unit. The activation unit is activated by a mechanical force exerted onto an activation element of the activation unit and the mechanical activation assembly includes for each of the at least two oxygen masks a first mechanical connection from the activation element to a fixation element releasably mounted to the emergency oxygen device and a second mechanical connection from the fixation element to the oxygen mask.

  • Patent number: 9656106
    Abstract: The invention relates to an emergency oxygen supply device for aircraft inhabitants, comprising a container, wherein an oxygen mask is positioned inside said container, a releasable cover and a latch mechanism comprising a latch locking said cover lid. According to the invention said latch mechanism comprises a permanent magnet interacting with a magnetisable element an exerting a magnetic holding force onto said magnetisable element to hold said latch in a locking position, wherein a solenoid is positioned adjacent to the permanent magnet, said solenoid being connected to a control unit said control unit being adapted to receive an opening signal and to provide a current flowing through said solenoid in response to such opening signal, wherein said solenoid is arranged and dimensioned such that the current flowing through said solenoid reduces said magnetic holding force to such a level that the latch is released in a n unlocking position.
