Title
(EN) RAIL-SWITCHING UNIT
(FR) UNITÉ D'AIGUILLAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A rail-switching unit, functioning singly or combined with other same units as part of a track-switching unit of a track-switching system of a vehicle-guiding system, comprising a rotatable ensemble (rotatable-hub with attached switch- rails and auxiliary components) and stationary elements (main fixed-rail, branch fixed-rails and supporting structure), wherein the fixed-rails are attached to common rails and the rotatable-hub selectively rotates to allow engagement of each switch-rail simultaneously with the main fixed-rail and with a corresponding branch fixed-rail with the purpose of creating alternative continuous rail paths for the vehicles to move through the rail/track-switching unit. The mechanism is applicable to mono/multi-railed tracks, to supporting/suspended vehicles, to traditional/rail-wrapping wheels-assemblies, to diverge/merge/cross-points, and to a wide variety of track-switching configurations. The invention provides a method and apparatus requiring switch-rails driving forces of minimal magnitude and minimal variability to maximize energy-efficiency, precision and ease of control of the device.

La présente invention concerne une unité d'aiguillage, pouvant fonctionner de manière individuelle ou en combinaison avec d'autres unités identiques faisant partie d'une unité d'aiguillage d'un système d'aiguillage appartenant à un système de guidage de véhicules, qui comprend un ensemble rotatif (moyeu rotatif pourvu de rails de commutation fixes et de composants auxiliaires) et des éléments fixes (rail fixe principal, rails fixes de dérivation et structure de support), les rails fixes étant fixés à des rails communs et le moyeu rotatif tournant de manière sélective pour permettre l'entrée en contact de chaque rail de commutation simultanément avec le rail fixe principal et avec le rail fixe de dérivation correspondant dans le but de créer des chemins de rail continus alternatifs pour que les véhicules se déplacent par l'unité de commutation de rail/voie. Le mécanisme peut être utilisé pour des voies ferrées mono/multi-rails, des véhicules de soutien/suspendus, des train de roues classiques/à enroulement de rails, des points de divergence/de fusion/de croisement, et diverses configurations d'aiguillage. L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil nécessitant des forces d'entraînement de lames d'aiguille d'amplitude et de variabilité minimales permettant d'élever au maximum l'efficacité énergétique, la précision et la facilité de commande du dispositif.
