Title: SELF-ADJUSTING AIR OUTLET
Abstract:
A nozzle (1) for the supply of ventilating air to the interior (2) of a vehicle is divergent and is provided with at least two hinged devices (7, 8) mounted in such a way that they can pivot, which are each mounted at one edge at a hinge point (9, 10) near the inlet (3) of the nozzle and extend in the direction of the outlet (4) of the nozzle. The hinged devices are arranged to be pivoted apart for a small airflow in order to achieve a maximum outlet opening and to be pivoted towards each other for a large airflow in order to achieve a small outlet opening. As the hinged devices are spring-loaded, the size of the outlet opening is changed automatically as a function of the size of the airflow.
