Description

  • L'invention concerne les poignées pour ouvrant de véhicule automobile. The invention relates to the handles for opening of a motor vehicle.
  • On connaît des poignées pour ouvrant de véhicule, munies d'un dispositif de sécurité à masse inertielle permettant en cas d'accident d'éviter l'ouverture de l'ouvrant sous l'effet de la décélération subie par la partie préhensible de la poignée. Le document EP-1 556 569 On connaît des poignées pour ouvrant de véhicule, munies d'un dispositif de sécurité à masse inertielle permettant en cas d'accident d'éviter l'ouverture de l'ouvrant sous l'effet de la décélération subie par la partie préhensible de la poignée. Le document EP-1 556 569 divulgue ainsi un mécanisme à pendule qui autorise le déverrouillage de la porte et son ouverture lorsque l'utilisateur saisit la partie préhensible de la poignée externe, mais qui interdit cette ouverture sous l'effet de la décélération intempestive de la partie préhensible de la poignée, une masselotte du pendule provoquant en effet par inertie le placement de ce dernier dans une position de verrouillage de sécurité de la porte. thus discloses a pendulum mechanism which authorizes the unlocking of the door and its opening when the user grasps the gripping part of the external handle, but which prevents this opening under the effect of the untimely deceleration of the gripping part of the handle, a weight of the pendulum in fact causing by inertia the placement of the latter in a safety locking position of the door. Known handles for opening a vehicle, provided with an inertial mass safety device allowing in case of accident to avoid the opening of the opening under the effect of the deceleration experienced by the gripping portion of the handle . Known handles for opening a vehicle, provided with an inertial mass safety device allowing in case of accident to avoid the opening of the opening under the effect of the deceleration experienced by the gripping portion of the handle. The document The document EP-1,556,569 EP-1,556,569 discloses a pendulum mechanism that allows the unlocking of the door and its opening when the user grasps the gripping portion of the external handle, but which prohibits this opening under the effect of the inadvertent deceleration of the gripping portion of the handle, a weight of the pendulum causing inertia by placing the latter in a security locking position of the door. discloses a pendulum mechanism that allows the unlocking of the door and its opening when the user grasps the gripping portion of the external handle, but which prohibits this opening under the effect of the inadvertent deceleration of the gripping portion of the handle, a weight of the pendulum causing inertia by placing the latter in a security locking position of the door.
  • Les dispositifs de sécurité à masse inertielle présentent toutefois des inconvénients. Ils nécessitent des calculs poussés de dimensionnement de la masselotte. De plus, ils compliquent le développement des nouvelles poignées de véhicule. Ces mécanismes allongent aussi l'assemblage de la poignée et rendent plus difficile sa standardisation pour l'intégrer à des projets différents.Safety devices with inertial mass, however, have disadvantages. They require extensive calculations for sizing the weight. In addition, they complicate the development of new vehicle handles. These mechanisms also lengthen the assembly of the handle and make it more difficult to standardize it for integration into different projects.
  • C'est la raison pour laquelle on a proposé des dispositifs de sécurité pour ouvrant de véhicule dépourvus de mécanisme à masse inertielle. C'est le cas par exemple du document EP-1 950 366 C'est la raison pour laquelle on a proposé des dispositifs de sécurité pour ouvrant de véhicule dépourvus de mécanisme à masse inertielle. C'est le cas par exemple du document EP-1 950 366 . . Dans ce dernier, la partie préhensible de la poignée comprend une gâchette qui, pour l'ouverture, met en prise deux éléments de la chaîne cinématique de déverrouillage de l'ouvrant. In the latter, the gripping part of the handle comprises a trigger which, for opening, engages two elements of the kinematic chain for unlocking the opening. Ainsi, lorsque l'utilisateur agrippe la partie préhensible de la poignée, il met en prise les éléments de la chaîne, ce qui permet le déverrouillage et l'ouverture de l'ouvrant. Thus, when the user grips the gripping part of the handle, he engages the elements of the chain, which allows the unlocking and opening of the opening. En cas de choc du véhicule, même si la partie préhensible de la poignée se déplace par inertie, la gâchette n'est pas actionnée. In the event of a collision with the vehicle, even if the gripping part of the handle moves by inertia, the trigger is not actuated. Les pièces n'étant pas en prise, la chaîne cinématique demeure interrompue de sorte que le mouvement de la partie préhensible de la poignée se produit sans déverrouiller l'ouvrant. Since the parts are not engaged, the kinematic chain remains interrupted so that the movement of the gripping part of the handle occurs without unlocking the sash. This is the reason why safety devices have been proposed for opening a vehicle without an inertial mass mechanism. This is the reason why safety devices have been proposed for opening a vehicle without an inertial mass mechanism. This is the case, for example, in the document This is the case, for example, in the document EP-1,950,366 EP-1,950,366 . . In the latter, the gripping portion of the handle comprises a trigger which, for opening, engages two elements of the kinematic chain unlocking the opening. In the latter, the gripping portion of the handle included a trigger which, for opening, engages two elements of the kinematic chain unlocking the opening. Thus, when the user grasps the gripping portion of the handle, it engages the elements of the chain, which allows the unlocking and opening of the opening. Thus, when the user grasps the gripping portion of the handle, it engages the elements of the chain, which allows the unlocking and opening of the opening. In case of shock of the vehicle, even if the gripping part of the handle moves by inertia, the trigger is not actuated. In case of shock of the vehicle, even if the gripping part of the handle moves by inertia, the trigger is not actuated. As the parts are not engaged, the power train remains interrupted so that the movement of the gripping portion of the handle occurs without unlocking the door. As the parts are not engaged, the power train remains interrupted so that the movement of the gripping portion of the handle occurs without unlocking the door.

  • Un but de l'invention est de proposer une poignée d'un type différent mais susceptible elle aussi d'être exempte de masse inertielle. An object of the invention is to provide a handle of a different type but may also be free of inertial mass.
  • A cet effet, on prévoit selon l'invention une poignée d'ouvrant de véhicule, comprenant:

Ainsi, contrairement au principe retenu dans le document Thus, contrary to the principle retained in the document EP-1 950 366 EP-1 950 366 , la sécurité est procurée non par l'interruption de la chaîne cinématique en position de repos, mais par le fait que cette chaîne cinématique est immobilisée, par le blocage de l'actionneur, en position de repos. , safety is provided not by interrupting the kinematic chain in the rest position, but by the fact that this kinematic chain is immobilized, by blocking the actuator, in the rest position. Lorsqu'il s'agit de déverrouiller l'ouvrant, on met fin au blocage de l'actionneur de sorte que la chaîne cinématique peut agir normalement. When it comes to unlocking the opening, the locking of the actuator is ended so that the kinematic chain can act normally. Cet agencement permet lui aussi de se dispenser d'une masse inertielle.
