Title: MODULAR SYSTEM FOR ASSEMBLING MOTOR-DRIVEN ADJUSTABLE SUPPORTING DEVICES FOR PADDINGS OF ITEMS OF FURNITURE FOR SITTING OR LYING UPON
Abstract:
The invention relates to a modular system for assembling motor-driven adjustable supporting devices for paddings of items of furniture for sitting or lying upon, particularly for bed mattresses. The respective supporting device, when assembled, has at least two supporting parts, which can be displaced relative to one another and which serve to support the padding. The modular system comprises at least one first longitudinal member subassembly (4) and at least one second longitudinal member subassembly (6) that are joined to one another while being laterally interspaced by joining means whereby forming a base body of the supporting device. The modular system also comprises electric motor-driven driving means for displacing the supporting parts relative to one another and comprises controlling means for controlling the electric motor-driven driving means. According to the invention, a first electric motor-driven drive unit (22) is assigned to the first longitudinal member subassembly (4), and a second electric motor-driven drive unit (30) is assigned to the second longitudinal member subassembly (6). The first electric motor-driven drive unit (22) and the second electric motor-driven drive unit (30) can be brought into an active connection with the same supporting part of the supporting device in order to displace the same, and the controlling means have an electrical or electronic control circuit for the, in essence, synchronous control of the first electric motor-driven drive unit (22) and the second electric motor-driven drive unit (30).
