Title (EN) NON-HYDRAULIC, INTEGRATED DAMPING MECHANISM IN AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLER ASSEMBLY
(FR) MÉCANISME D'AMORTISSEMENT INTÉGRÉ NON HYDRAULIQUE DANS UN ENSEMBLE DE COMMANDE ÉLECTRONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A dampened electronic control for manual operation to control a machine includes a housing, a movable element pivotally supported in the housing upon a shaft with a rotation axis, and an electronic sensor configured to detect rotational movement of the shaft. A non- hydraulic damping mechanism is coupled to the moveable element, wherein the damping mechanism includes a piston disposed in a cylinder of the housing and configured to operate with air inside the cylinder as the working fluid and a spring to resiliently bias the piston towards the moveable element. Movement of the moveable element towards the piston causes the piston to compress the air inside the cylinder to thereby provide a resistance force against the moveable element to thereby dampen the movement of the moveable element.
(FR) L'invention concerne une commande électronique amortie d'une opération manuelle permettant de commander une machine, comprenant un boîtier, un élément mobile supporté pivotant dans le boîtier sur un arbre ayant un axe de rotation, et un capteur électronique configuré pour détecter un mouvement de rotation de l'arbre. Un mécanisme d'amortissement non hydraulique est accouplé à l'élément mobile, le mécanisme d'amortissement comprenant un piston disposé dans un cylindre du boîtier et conçu pour fonctionner à l'intérieur du cylindre avec de l'air en tant que fluide de travail et un ressort destiné à solliciter élastiquement le piston en direction de l'élément mobile. Le déplacement de l'élément mobile en direction du piston amène le piston à comprimer l'air à l'intérieur du cylindre pour ainsi fournir une force de résistance contre l'élément mobile de façon à ainsi amortir le déplacement de l'élément mobile.
