Title (EN) TRANSMISSION WITH ADJUSTMENT MEMBER FOR VARYING TENSION FORCE
(FR) TRANSMISSION AVEC ORGANE DE RÉGLAGE POUR FAIRE VARIER UN EFFORT DE TENSION
Abstract:
(EN) A transmission apparatus includes a drive member, a driven member, and an at least partially flexible transmission coupled to the drive member and the driven member. The flexible transmission is configured to cause movement of the driven member in response to movement of the drive member. The flexible transmission includes a first tension element having a first portion coupled to the drive member, a second portion coupled to the driven member, and an intermediate portion between the first portion and the second portion. The transmission apparatus also includes an adjustment member that engages the intermediate portion of the first tension element. The adjustment member is configured to be adjusted to vary a tension force applied to the first tension element.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de transmission comprenant un organe moteur, un organe récepteur et une transmission au moins partiellement souple couplée à l'organe moteur et à l'organe récepteur. La transmission souple est configurée pour provoquer un mouvement de l'organe récepteur en réponse à un mouvement de l'organe moteur. La transmission souple comprend un premier élément de tension doté d'une première partie couplée à l'organe moteur, d'une deuxième partie couplée à l'organe récepteur et d'une partie intermédiaire située entre la première partie et la deuxième partie. L'appareil de transmission comprend également un organe de réglage qui interagit avec la partie intermédiaire du premier élément de tension. L'organe de réglage est configuré pour être réglé afin de faire varier un effort de tension appliqué au premier élément de tension.
