Title (DE) GELENK FÜR EIN KRAFTFAHRZEUG
(EN) JOINT FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE
(FR) JOINT ARTICULE POUR AUTOMOBILE
Abstract:
(DE) Gelenk für ein Kraftfahrzeug, mit einem Gelenkgehäuse (2), einem in diesem schwenkbar gelagerten Gelenkzapfen (5) und einer einen Magnet (18) und einen mit diesem zusammenwirkenden magnetfeldempfindlichen Sensor aufweisenden Winkelmessvorrichtung, mittels welcher der Winkel (&phgr;) des Gelenkzapfens (5) relativ zu dem Gelenkgehäuse (2) erfassbar ist, wobei der Magnet (18) an dem Gelenkzapfen (5) und der Sensor an dem Gelenkgehäuse (2) oder der Magnet (18) an dem Gelenkgehäuse (2) und der Sensor an dem Gelenkzapfen (5) zumindest mittelbar befestigt ist, und wobei der magnetfeldempfindliche Sensor von einer einen Kern (16) aus einem magnetischen Werkstoff aufweisenden elektrischen Spule (17) gebildet ist, die Teil eines elektrischen Schwingkreises (15) ist, von dem elektromagnetische Wellen (27) aussendbar sind oder ausgesendet werden.
(EN) The invention relates to a joint for a motor vehicle, having a joint housing (2), having a joint pin (5) which is pivotably mounted therein, and having an angle measuring device which has a magnet (18) and a sensor which is sensitive to magnetic fields and interacts with said magnet (18), said angle measuring device serving to detect the angle (&phgr;) of the joint pin (5) relative to the joint housing (2), the magnet (18) being at least indirectly fastened to the joint pin (5) and the sensor being at least indirectly fastened to the joint housing (2) or the magnet (18) being at least indirectly fastened to the joint housing (2) and the sensor being at least indirectly fastened to the joint pin (5), and the sensor which is sensitive to magnetic fields being formed by an electric coil (17) which has a core (16) of magnetic material and is part of an electric oscillating circuit (15) which emits, or can emit, electromagnetic waves (27).
(FR) L'invention concerne un joint articulé pour automobile, comprenant un boîtier de joint articulé (2), un pivot (5) monté pivotant dedans et un dispositif de mesure angulaire comprenant un aimant (18) et un capteur sensible au champ magnétique, qui coopère avec l'aimant, et au moyen duquel l'angle (f) du pivot (5) peut être détecté par rapport au boîtier de joint articulé (2). L'aimant (18) est fixé au moins indirectement sur le pivot (5), le capteur l'étant sur le boîtier de joint articulé (2) ou l'aimant (18) sur le boîtier de joint articulé (2) et le capteur, sur le pivot (5). Le capteur sensible au champ magnétique comprend une bobine électrique (17) présentant un noyau (16) à base de matériau magnétique, qui fait partie d'un circuit oscillant électrique (15), d'où des ondes électromagnétiques (27) peuvent être émises ou par lequel elles peuvent être reçues.
