Abstract
(EN)
A vehicle transmission has an actuator with an output shaft, which is movable for independent operation of two gear shift devices and a clutch. The output shaft is movable in an axial direction and in a rotary sense. The gear shift devices and the clutch each have an associated input member. The output shaft includes a selection finger, which is movable for engagement with a respective input member. The gear shift devices are located at one end of the actuator and the clutch is located at the opposite end of the actuator. The input member for the clutch includes a shaft which extends back through the output shaft and actuator. An electromagnetic latch, is used to hold the clutch in a closed state.

La présente invention concerne une transmission d'automobile comprenant un actionneur avec un arbre de sortie, qui est mobile de façon à mettre en œuvre indépendamment deux dispositifs de changement de vitesse et un embrayage. L'arbre de sortie est mobile axialement et en rotation. Les dispositifs de changement de vitesse et l'embrayage comportent chacun un élément d'entrée. L'arbre de sortie comporte un doigt de sélection mobile de façon à venir au contact d'un élément d'entrée respectif. Les dispositifs de changement de vitesse sont situés à une extrémité de l'actionneur, l'embrayage étant situé à l'extrémité opposée de l'actionneur. L'élément d'entrée pour l'embrayage comprend un arbre dépassant en arrière au travers de l'arbre de sortie et de l'actionneur. C'est un verrou électromagnétique qui maintient fermé l'embrayage.
