Title (EN) AN ADJUSTABLE TILT MECHANISM
(FR) MÉCANISME D'INCLINAISON RÉGLABLE
Abstract:
(EN) Aspects of the invention are directed to adjustable tilt mechanisms (30), e.g., adjustable tilt mechanisms configured for enabling objects to tilt around a tilting axis (101). According to one aspect of the invention, an adjustable tilt mechanism includes a housing (100) that defines a tilt axis and an adjustment axis (103) oriented perpendicular and non-intersecting relative to the tilt axis and a torque adjustment assembly that is at least partially disposed within the housing. The torque adjustment assembly (118) includes an adjuster (130) positioned for rotation about the adjustment axis defined by the housing, a gear (120) positioned for rotation about the tilt axis defined by the housing, and a biasing spring (140) coupled to the gear. The gear being operatively coupled to the adjuster. The housing configured for coupling to an object.
(FR) Des aspects de l'invention concernent des mécanismes d'inclinaison réglables (30), par exemple des mécanismes d'inclinaison réglables configurés pour permettre à des objets de s'incliner autour d'un axe d'inclinaison (101). Selon un aspect de l'invention, un mécanisme d'inclinaison réglable comprend un boîtier (110) qui définit un axe d'inclinaison et un axe de réglage (103) orienté perpendiculairement et de façon à ne pas croiser l'axe d'inclinaison et un ensemble de réglage de couple qui est au moins partiellement disposé à l'intérieur du boîtier. L'ensemble de réglage de couple (118) comprend un dispositif de réglage (130) positionné pour une rotation autour de l'axe de réglage défini par le boîtier, un engrenage (120) positionné pour une rotation autour de l'axe d'inclinaison défini par le boîtier, et un ressort de sollicitation (140) accouplé à l'engrenage. L'engrenage est accouplé de manière fonctionnelle au dispositif de réglage. Le boîtier est configuré pour être accouplé à un objet.
