Title (EN) FALL PROTECTION DEVICE AND ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM THEREFOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PROTECTION CONTRE LES CHUTES ET SON MÉCANISME DE RÉGLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A fall protection device, including: a housing; a hub rotatable with respect to the housing; a line wrapped around the hub and configured to pay out from and retract into the housing, an engagement mechanism configured to prevent rotation of the hub and further payout of the line; and an adjustment mechanism configured to adjust a length of the line paid out from the housing, the adjustment mechanism comprising: (i) at least one gear attached to the housing; (ii) a pivot having a track configured to interact with the at least one gear and pivot as the at least one gear rotates; and (iii) an arm configured to urge at least a portion of the engagement mechanism causing it to move into an engagement position, to thereby prevent further rotation of the hub and payout of the line from the fall protection device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de protection contre les chutes, comprenant : un boîtier ; un moyeu pouvant tourner par rapport au boîtier ; une ligne enroulée autour du moyeu et conçue pour se dévider et se rétracter dans le boîtier, un mécanisme de mise en prise conçu pour empêcher la rotation du moyeu et un dévidement supplémentaire de la ligne ; et un mécanisme de réglage conçu pour régler une longueur de la ligne dévidée du boîtier, le mécanisme de réglage comprenant : (i) au moins un engrenage fixé au boîtier ; (ii) un pivot ayant une piste conçue pour interagir avec le ou les engrenages et pivoter lorsque le ou les engrenages tournent ; et (iii) un bras conçu pour presser au moins une partie du mécanisme de mise en prise l'amenant à se déplacer dans une position de mise en prise, pour empêcher ainsi une rotation supplémentaire du moyeu et un dévidement de la ligne à partir du dispositif de protection contre les chutes.
