Title
(EN) A COLLAPSIBLE STEERING COLUMN
(FR) COLONNE DE DIRECTION RETRACTABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A collapsible steering column comprising first (1) and second (2) column members which are telescopically and non-rotatably connected together, locking means (4) for maintaining the first (1) and second (2) column members in an axially extended position, collision sensing means and a charge device operated by said collision sensing means to remove or at least substantially weaken said locking means (4) in the event of a collision, thereby enabling the column members (1, 2) to telescope together.
(FR)
Colonne de direction rétractable comprenant des premier (1) et second (2) éléments qui sont raccordés de manière télescopique et non rotative, un élément de blocage (4) maintenant ces premier (1) et second (2) éléments de la colonne dans une position axiale étendue; un dispositif de détection de collision et un dispositif de charge actionné par le dispositif de détection de collision de façon à dégager ou affaiblir au moins partiellement l'élément de blocage (4) en cas de collision, ce qui permet aux éléments (1, 2) de la colonne de s'insérer l'un dans l'autre.
