Title
(EN) ADAPTER FOR AUTOMATIC FUELING OF VEHICLES
(FR) ADAPTATEUR POUR LE RAVITAILLEMENT AUTOMATIQUE EN CARBURANT DE VEHICULES
Abstract
(EN)
An adapter for automatically fueling automotive vehicles, primarily cars, wherein a robot which includes a robot head that is movable in relation to the robot and can by means of a positioning system be docked with the adapter (3). The adapter is intended to be fastened to the upper orifice of the fuel-tank pipe (2) and includes a conical part. The present invention is characterized in that the adpater (3) includes a base part (13) and an adaptation funnel (14), wherein the base part (13) is intended to be fastened to the fuel-tank pipe (2), and wherein the base part has an opening (16); in that the adaptation funnel (14) projects out from the base part (13); in that the adaptation funnel (14) is rotatable relative to the base part about the longitudinal axis (17) of the base part, thereby enabling the adapter (3) to be positioned correctly on the fuel-tank pipe (2) in a rotational direction.
(FR)
Adaptateur pour le ravitaillement automatique en carburant de véhicules automobiles, notamment de voitures, dans lequel on utilise un robot pourvu d'une tête de robot mobile par rapport au robot et pouvant être introduite dans l'adaptateur (3) à l'aide d'un système de positionnement. Cet adaptateur est destiné à être fixé à l'orifice supérieur de la conduite (2) aboutissant dans le réservoir et comprend une partie conique. La présente invention se caractérise par le fait que l'adaptateur (3) comprend un partie de base (13) et un entonnoir adaptateur (14); que la partie de base (13) est destinée à être fixée à la conduite (2) aboutissant dans le réservoir, et présente une ouverture (16); que l'entonnoir adaptateur (14) fait saillie sur cette partie de base (13); et que ledit entonnoir (14) peut tourner par rapport à la partie de base autour de l'axe longitudinal (17) de la partie de base, permettant ainsi le positionnement correct de l'adaptateur (3) sur la conduite (2) dans le sens de rotation.
