Title
(EN) ADJUSTABLE AUTOMOBILE PEDAL SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE PEDALE AUTOMOBILE REGLABLE
Abstract
(EN)
An adjustment device (10) for an automobile control pedal (20) which is capable of pivotably adjusting the control pedal (20) relative to a datum point, such as the eyelet (36) of a cylinder pushrod (34). The adjustment device (10) allows the control pedal (20) to be optimally positioned to suit the needs of a particular driver. The control pedal (20) can be pivotally attached to a frame (14) in any conventional manner, such as with a pivot pin (24). The adjustment device (10) is mounted alongside the control pedal (20) and to the pushrod eyelet (36) without the need of additional support hardware other than a device for maintaining a predetermined distance between the pushrod eyelet (36) and the pivot pin (24) of the control pedal (20). Consequently, the adjustment device can be readily adapted to fit conventional control pedal assemblies without significant modification. The adjustment device (10) includes a camming device (38) for causing pivotable movement of the pedal arm (20) relative to the datum point (36).
(FR)
Dispositif (10) de réglage d'une pédale (20) de commande d'automobile qui permet de régler par pivotement la pédale (20) de commande par rapport à un point de référence, tel que l'oeil (36) d'une tige de poussoir (34). Ledit dispositif (10) de réglage permet de placer la pédale (20) de commande de manière optimale pour s'adapter aux besoins d'un conducteur donné. Ladite pédale (20) de commande peut être attachée pivotante à un châssis (14) selon tout moyen classique, tel qu'un pivot (24). Le dispositif (10) de réglage est monté le long de la pédale (20) de commande et sur l'oeil (36) de la tige de poussoir et ne nécessite pas de matériel de support supplémentaire autre qu'un dispositif destiné à maintenir une distance prédéterminée entre l'oeil (36) de tige de poussoir et le pivot (24) de la pédale (20) de commande. Par conséquent, ledit dispositif de réglage peut être facilement adapté pour pouvoir s'appliquer sur des ensembles pédale de commande classiques sans modification importante. Ce dispositif (10) comporte un mécanisme (38) à fonction de came destiné à provoquer le mouvement du bras (20) de pédale par rapport au point de référence (36).
