Title
(EN) Split electromechanical motor vehicle stabilizer having a locking device, and method for roll stabilization in the event of failure or shutoff of the active motor vehicle stabilizer
Abstract
(EN)

A split electromechanical motor vehicle stabilizer having a locking device, and a method for roll stabilization are described. A split motor vehicle stabilizer is provided for roll stabilization, having a built-in electromechanical actuator for bracing two stabilizer parts against one another, including at least an electric motor, a gear unit, and a locking device which can lock a housing for the actuator to a rotor in the electric motor. The housing is connected to one of the stabilizer parts, and a gear unit output shaft is connected to the other stabilizer part for the purpose of transmitting torque. The housing and the rotor can be locked in only one position relative to one another after the locking device is activated, and that is the normal position for the two halves of the stabilizer in which they are not braced against one another.
