Title (EN) TOLERANCE COMPENSATING CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR DE COMPENSATION DE TOLERANCE
Abstract:
(EN) A tolerance compensating connector (100) comprising a first member (10) having a threaded portion (12), a second member (20) comprising a bore (22) and an outer surface (21), the outer surface having a helical thread engagable with a receiver (40), the first member engaged with the bore, a third member (30) engaged with the first member and the second member, the third member transmitting a torque from the first member to the second member such that a first torque transmitted to the second member as the first member is turned in a first direction is sufficient to turn the second member in the receiver, the third member having a slipping engagement with the first member when the first torque is exceeded, and upon the first member being turned in a direction opposite the first direction the third member transmits a second torque to the second member sufficient to turn the second member in the receiver in a direction opposite the first direction.
(FR) L'invention concerne un connecteur de compensation de tolérance (100), qui comprend: un premier élément (10) muni d'une partie filetée (12); un deuxième élément (20) muni d'un alésage (22) et présentant une surface extérieure (21) à filetage hélicoïdal pouvant entrer en prise avec un organe de réception (40), le premier élément étant en prise avec l'alésage; et un troisième élément (30) en prise avec le premier élément et le deuxième élément. Le troisième élément transmet un couple du premier élément au deuxième élément, de sorte qu'un premier couple, transmis au deuxième élément pendant que le premier élément est orienté dans une première direction, soit suffisant pour orienter le deuxième élément dans l'organe de réception. Le troisième élément assure une prise coulissante avec le premier élément lorsque le premier couple est dépassé et, lorsque le premier élément est orienté dans une direction opposée à la première direction, le troisième élément transmet au deuxième élément un second couple suffisant pour orienter le deuxième élément dans l'organe de réception, dans une direction opposée à la première direction.
