Title (DE) VORRICHTUNG ZUR SELBSTTÄTIGEN LÄNGENKORREKTUR VON SEILZÜGEN
(EN) DEVICE FOR AUTOMATIC LENGTH ADJUSTMENT OF CABLES
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CORRECTION AUTOMATIQUE DE LA LONGUEUR DE CABLES SOUS GAINE
Abstract:
(DE) Es wird eine Vorrichtung zur selbsttätigen Längenkorrektur von Seilzügen (6, 11) beschrieben, mit einem eine Aufnahme (3) aufweisenden Gehäuse (1) und einer in der Aufnahme (3) verschiebbar geführten Zahnstange (4), wobei das Gehäuse (1) und die Zahnstange (4) jeweils über einen Seilzug (6, 11) mit einem Geber (14) und einem Nehmer (16) gekoppelt sind. Bei Aktivierung des Gebers (14) sind das Gehäuse (1) und die Zahnstange (4) mittels eines Getriebes o. dgl. koppelbar, während bei einer Deaktivierung des Gebers (14) die mit einer Vorspannung beaufschlagte Zahnstange (4) zur Kompensation etwaiger im System vorhandener Lose bzgl. des Gehäuses (1) in Richtung einer Verkürzung der Vorrichtung verschiebbar ist.
(EN) The invention relates to a device for automatic length adjustment of cables (6, 11), with a housing (1) having a receiving means (3) and a toothed rack (4) displaceably guided in the receiving means (3). The housing (1) and the toothed rack (4) are each linked by way of a cable (6, 11) to sending means (14) and receiving means (16). When the sending means (14) is activated, the housing (1) and the toothed rack (4) can be linked using a gear or the like. In contrast, when the sending means (14) is deactivated, the toothed rack (4) acted upon with initial stress can be moved to shorten the device in order to compensate for any possible system slack in relation to the housing (1).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de correction automatique de la longueur de câbles sous gaine (6, 11), qui comprend un boîtier (1) présentant une cavité (3) et une crémaillère (4) guidée coulissante dans ladite cavité (3). Le boîtier (1) et la crémaillère (4) sont accouplés chacun à un élément émetteur (14) et à un élément récepteur (16), par l'intermédiaire d'un câble sous gaine (6, 11). Lorsque l'élément émetteur (14) est activé, le boîtier (1) et la crémaillère (4) peuvent être accouplés à l'aide d'un mécanisme de transmission. Lorsque ledit élément émetteur (14) est désactivé, la crémaillère (4) soumise à une précontrainte peut être déplacée pour raccourcir le dispositif afin de compenser tout jeu relatif au boîtier (1), intervenant éventuellement dans le système.
