Title
(EN) MECHANIZED DRAWER
(FR) TIROIR MECANIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A modular drive unit (10) for controllably extending a storage receptacle (70) such as a drawer or shelf, wherein the drive unit (10) comprises a drive pulley (20), a take up pulley (14a, 14b) and an elongate spring member (16) biased such that the spring member (16) has a tendency to wind about one of the take up pulley (14a, 14b) and the drive pulley (20). The modular drive unit (10) further includes a drive wheel (22) rotatably coupled to the drive pulley (20), a rotation thereof providing a driving force for extending of the storage receptacle (70). The drive wheel (22) includes either or both of a toothed gear wheel and a cylindrical shaft for receiving a drive cable (62) windable thereon.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une unité d'entraînement modulaire (10) permettant de sortir de manière contrôlée un réceptacle de stockage (70), par exemple un tiroir ou une étagère. Ladite unité d'entraînement (10) comprend une poulie d'entraînement (20), une poulie de tension (14a, 14b) et un élément de ressort allongé (16) qui, sollicité, a tendance à s'enrouler autour d'une des poulies de tension (14a, 14b) et de la poulie d'entraînement (20). L'unité d'entraînement modulaire (10) comporte en outre une roue d'entraînement (22) couplée tournante à la poulie d'entraînement (20), dont une rotation produit une force d'entraînement qui sort le réceptacle de stockage (70). La roue d'entraînement (22) comporte une roue dentée et/ou une portée cylindrique qui reçoivent un câble d'entraînement (62) et autour desquelles il peut s'enrouler.
