Title
(EN) DRIVE TRACKS AND SOLAR PANEL CLEANING ROBOT COMPRISING SUCH TRACKS
(FR) CHENILLES MOTRICES ET ROBOT NETTOYEUR POUR PANNEAUX SOLAIRES COMPRENANT DE TELLES CHENILLES
Abstract
(EN)
A drive track for a cleaning robot moving on inclined surfaces such as photovoltaic panels has a multilayer structure comprising: an internal layer (20) formed by a continuous belt having an internal face (20.1) able to engage with means for driving the track; an intermediate layer (22) comprising a plurality of damping blocks (22.1) disposed over the entire length of the continuous belt of the internal layer with a predefined separation (e); and an external running layer (24) coming into contact with the surface on which the track moves, the running layer being formed by pads (24.1) supported by the damping blocks (22.1). The damping blocks are made of elastomer material and have a cellular structure with a plurality of parallel through-channels (22.2).

Une chenille motrice pour un robot nettoyeur évoluant sur des surfaces inclinées telles que des panneaux photovoltaïques présente une structure multicouches comprenant : une couche intérieure (20) formée par une bande continue ayant une face intérieure (20.1) apte à coopérer avec des moyens d'entrainement de la chenille; une couche intermédiaire (22) comportant une pluralité de blocs amortisseurs (22.1) disposés sur toute la longueur de la bande continue de la couche interne avec un espacement (e) prédéfini; et une couche extérieure (24) de roulement venant en contact de la surface sur laquelle la chenille évolue, la couche de roulement étant formée par des patins (24.1) portés par les blocs amortisseurs (22.1). Les blocs amortisseurs sont réalisés en matériau élastomère et présentent une structure alvéolaire avec une pluralité de canaux (22.2) parallèles traversants.
