Title (DE) BODENBEARBEITUNGSSYSTEM
(EN) FLOOR TREATMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRAITEMENT DU SOL
Abstract:
(DE) Die Erfindung betrifft ein Bodenbearbeitungssystem (10) mit einer selbstfahrenden und selbststeuernden Bodenbearbeitungseinheit (14), die ein elektrisch angetriebenes Bodenbearbeitungsaggregat (24) sowie eine wiederaufladbare Energieversorgungseinheit (46) umfasst, und mit einer zentralen Ladestation (12) zum Wiederaufladen der Energieversorgungseinheit (46), wobei die Bodenbearbeitungseinheit (14) über einander zugeordnete elektrische Verbindungselemente (86, 88, 94, 96, 98) , die an der Ladestation (14) und der Bodenbearbeitungseinheit (14) angeordnet sind, mit der Ladestation (12) elektrisch verbindbar ist. Um das Bodenbearbeitungssystem (10) derart weiterzubilden, dass es eine verbesserte elektrische Kopplung der einander zugeordneten Verbindungselemente (86, 88) ermöglicht, wird erfindungsgemäss vorgeschlagen, dass zumindest eines der einander zugeordneten Verbindungselemente federnd gehalten ist.
(EN) The invention relates to a floor treatment system (10) comprising a self-propelled, autonomous floor treatment unit (14), which contains an electrically driven floor treatment assembly (24), in addition to a rechargeable power supply unit (46) and comprising a central charging station (12) for recharging the power supply unit (46). According to the invention, the floor treatment unit (14) can be electrically connected to the charging station (12) by means of connecting elements (86, 88, 94, 96, 98) that are allocated to one another and are located on the charging station (12) and the floor treatment unit (14). The aim of the invention is to develop the floor treatment system (10) to allow improved electrical coupling of the connecting elements (86, 88) that are allocated to one another. To achieve this, at least one of the aforementioned inventive connecting elements is mounted in a spring-loaded manner.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de traitement du sol (10) qui comprend une unité de traitement du sol automotrice et autonome (14), présentant un groupe de traitement du sol à commande électrique (24) et une unité d'alimentation en énergie rechargeable (46), ainsi qu'une station de charge centrale (12) conçue pour recharger ladite unité d'alimentation en énergie (46). L'unité de traitement du sol (14) peut être reliée électriquement à la station de charge (12) par l'intermédiaire d'éléments de connexion électriques (86, 88, 94, 96, 98) qui sont associés les uns aux autres et sont montés sur la station de charge (12) et sur l'unité de traitement du sol (14). L'objectif de la présente invention est de développer un tel système de traitement du sol (10) de façon à obtenir un meilleur couplage électrique des éléments de connexion (86, 88) associés les uns aux autres. A cette fin, au moins un des éléments de connexion est maintenu contraint par ressort.
