Description

 MECHANICAL REHABILITATION SEAT AND INSTALLATION EQUIPPED WITH THIS SEAT

1

 The present invention relates to a lift seat and a lift facility equipped with this seat.

 Traditionally, a ski lift facility allows passengers, skiers or pedestrians to go up or down slopes. A ski lift installation generally comprises two end stations, a station placed at the bottom of a slope and a station placed at the top of the slope. These end stations are connected by a carrying aerial cable and tractor can form a closed loop. It is known to drive the cable through pulleys and support it with pylons. Vehicles suspended from the cable allow passengers to be transported from one end station to another.

 Carrying passengers up or down a slope requires a high level of safety, as seats usually travel at a relatively high distance from the ground. It is thus known from patent document WO2007 / 135256 to improve passenger safety by means of a magnetic member cooperating with an element made of ferromagnetic material carried by a passenger.

 It is also known to improve the safety of passengers by the use of a railing limiting the risk of accidental fall of a passenger from the seat.

 The railings are conventionally pivotally mounted relative to the seat to allow the loading and unloading of passengers. There is a lowered use position and a raised use position of the guardrail. When the guardrail is in the lowered position, it constitutes an obstacle to the tilting of a passenger in a vacuum. This lowered position of the guardrail is normally adopted during a phase of travel of the seat out of the loading and unloading areas. When the railing is in a raised position, it releases the space at the front of the seat so as to allow the passengers to settle in the seat or leave it. The guardrail is normally in the raised position when the seat is in a loading or unloading area.

For security reasons, the guardrail should not be lifted during the entire journey phase out of the embarkation and disembarkation areas. However, existing seats are generally only of limited safety, as nothing prevents passengers from guardrail during the journey from the seat outside the loading and unloading areas.

 To remedy this, it is known to use mechanical locking devices of the guardrail, such as that disclosed in patent document EP2030858. However, these mechanical devices impose an often complex structure. As a result, these devices only offer the possibility of being able to be mounted on vehicles under construction. They do not adapt to the vehicles of the existing mechanical installations and require more important maintenance. Finally, although they improve passenger safety, the known devices weigh down the vehicles, which leads to premature wear of the vehicles of the ski lift installations.

 Thus, the present invention aims to solve all or some of the disadvantages mentioned above by providing a mechanical lift seat providing increased safety for passengers by preventing the lifting of the railing during the transit phases of the seat between two end stations, while being adaptable to existing lifts, lightweight, and easy maintenance.

 For this purpose, the subject of the present invention is a mechanical lift seat comprising a railing capable of occupying a first extreme lowered position delimiting an enclosed space making it possible to prevent the fall of a passenger and a second raised extreme position in which the railing releases a space at the front of the seat to allow the disembarkation of one or more passenger (s), and means of locking the guardrail when it occupies a lowered position, characterized in that the means locking means comprise a bistable electromagnet provided with a rod movable between a first stable position in which the rod allows the railing to be locked in the lowered position by interposing an obstacle on the upward path described by a railing element for move from the lowered position to the raised position, and a second stable position in which the rod allows the unlocking of the railing for its displacement to the raised position by moving the obstacle away from the upward path described by the railing element.

Thus, the seat according to the invention offers the possibility of locking the guardrail in the lowered position, which contributes to increased passenger safety, with a system of lesser complexity than the existing systems, requiring little maintenance, and able to be easily installed on pre-existing seats without weighing them excessively.

 In addition, the use of a bistable electromagnet movable rod makes the seat less sensitive to climatic conditions to which it is exposed, often hostile to the extent that the seats are used in the mountains, and very often in winter. In particular, the guardrail locking system of the seat according to the invention has a lower sensitivity to frost which tends to form on the metal elements of the seats, and which can disrupt the operation of traditional guardrail locking systems .

 According to one embodiment, the obstacle is formed by a rocker movable in rotation with respect to the seat between a locking position in which a first functional surface of a first end of the rocker is arranged across the upward trajectory described by the railing element, and an unlocking position in which the first functional surface is arranged at a distance from the upward path described by the railing element, the displacement of the rod of the bistable electromagnet of the second stable position until the first stable position to immobilize the rocker in the locking position and, reciprocally, the movement of the rod from the first stable position to the second stable position to allow the rotation of the rocker to the unlock position.

 Advantageously, the locking means also comprise a movable locking member relative to the seat and attached to the rod of the electromagnet, the displacement of the rod consequently causing a displacement of the locking member between a blocking position of the rocker , wherein the locking member is adapted to lock the latch in the locking position, and an unlocking position, wherein the locking member allows the rotation of the latch from the locking position to the unlocking position.

 The locking member is for example rotatable. The locking member may comprise an end intended to come in the path of an abutment member of a second end of the rocker.

The locking member is for example substantially rectilinear, and the axis of rotation of the locking member can be arranged substantially on a tangent to the circle described by the stop member of the second end when the rocker pivots relative to the seat.

 The tangent may correspond to the tangent at a point M of the stop member when the rocker is in the locking position.

 Advantageously, the first end of the rocker comprises a second functional surface arranged on the path described by the railing element when the railing is moved from the raised position to the lowered position to cause, when the element guardrail bears against the second functional surface, the rotation of the rocker from the unlocking position to the locking position.

 The second functional surface may be arranged facing the first functional surface so that the first functional surface and the second functional surface delimit between them a housing for receiving the guardrail element.

 According to one possibility, the seat comprises return means in position arranged to return the latch in the unlocking position.

 The return means may comprise a torsion spring.

The torsion spring comprises for example a first end bearing against a lug attached to the seat and a second end attached to the rocker.

 The second end can be inserted into a housing provided on the rocker.

 According to one embodiment, the seat includes onboard electrical conductors arranged to be connected to an electrical supply circuit fitted to a mechanical lift installation, the embedded electrical conductors being electrically connected to the bistable electromagnet.

 According to one embodiment, the rod of the electromagnet is movable in translation between the first stable position and the second stable position.

 According to a variant, the rod of the electromagnet is rotatable between the first stable position and the second stable position.

Advantageously, the electromagnet is provided with two stops arranged to stop the rotation of the locking member when the locking member moved by the rod reaches the locking position and the unlocking position. The locking means can be arranged under the seat. For example, the seat comprises a flange extending under the seat and supporting the electromagnet and / or the locking member and / or the rocker.

 The guardrail element may correspond to a lug integral with a step of the guardrail.

 The rod of the electromagnet is movable alternately between the first stable position and the second stable position for example under the action of alternating polarity electrical pulses that can be triggered during the passage of the seat at the entrance of a landing area an end station and / or an embarkation area of an end station.

 According to one embodiment, the electromagnet comprises a first coil and a second coil intended to be fed alternately to alternately move the rod between the first position and the second position.

 The invention also relates to a mechanical lift installation comprising at least one mechanical lift seat having the aforementioned characteristics.

Other features and advantages will become apparent from the following description of an embodiment, given by way of non-limiting example, with reference to the appended drawings in which:

 FIG. 1 is a schematic side view of a mechanical lift seat according to one embodiment of the invention,

 FIGS. 2 and 3 are schematic side views of a portion of a mechanical lift seat according to one embodiment of the invention, in several operating positions,

 FIGS. 4 and 5 are diagrammatic profile views of part of a mechanical lift seat according to another embodiment of the invention, in several operating positions,

- Figure 6 is a schematic top view of a mechanical lift installation according to one embodiment of the invention. FIG. 1 shows a seat 1 of a mechanical lift according to one embodiment of the invention, while FIG. 6 shows an installation 100 of mechanical lift, for example of the chairlift type, equipped with at least one seat 1 according to a mode embodiment of the invention.

 According to the example of FIG. 6, the ski lift installation 100 comprises two end stations 102, 104. Each end station 102, 104 may include a passenger boarding area 106 and an unloading area 108. passengers. Each lift seat 1 is intended to be suspended from an aerial cable and tractor, carried by pylons, via a hanger 2. The cable 1 10 here forms a closed loop and can be driven by pulleys 1 12, 1 14.

 As can be seen in FIG. 1, the seat 1 can conventionally comprise a backrest 4 and a seat 6 to support one or more passengers. The backrest 4 and the seat 6 are here attached to a frame 8 to which is also attached the hanger 2.

 The lift seat 1 comprises a railing 10 adapted to occupy a first extreme lowered position, visible in full lines in FIG. 1, delimiting an enclosed space making it possible to prevent the fall of a passenger and a second raised extreme position, shown in broken lines in Figure 1, wherein the railing 10 releases a space in front of the seat 1 to allow the disembarkation of one or more passenger (s).

 The lift seat 1 also comprises means for locking the railing 10 when the latter is in a lowered position.

 According to the invention, the locking means comprise a bistable electromagnet 12, provided with a rod 14, visible in FIGS. 2 to 5.

 The rod 14 is movable between a first stable position, shown in Figures 3 and 5, wherein the rod 14 allows the locking of the guardrail 10 in the lowered position, and a second stable position in which the rod 14 allows the unlocking of the railing 10 for the movement of the guardrail 10 to the raised position.

According to the embodiment illustrated in Figures 2 and 3, the rod 14 is movable in translation relative to the electromagnet 12, between two stable positions corresponding to the first position and the second position. According to the embodiment illustrated in Figures 4 and 5, the rod 14 is rotatable relative to the electromagnet 12, between two stable positions corresponding to the first position and the second position.

 Whatever the movement of the rod 14 (translation or rotation), it is movable alternately between the first stable position and the second stable position.

 The electromagnet 12 comprises, for example, a first coil 16 and a second coil 18, each electrically connected, for example via a wire link 20, to two electrical conductors 22, 24 mounted on the seat 1, in particular on the hanger 2, such as those described in WO 2010/052426. The electrical conductors 22, 24 are intended to cooperate for example with a conductive brush system such as that described in the patent document WO 2010/052426, located at the end stations 102, 104, for supplying the electromagnet 12.

 If an electric pulse is given to the first coil 16, it will follow for example the displacement of the rod 14 of the second position to the first position ("output" of the rod 14 for a rod 14 movable in translation and "right rotation" for a rod 14 movable in rotation). As long as we do not give an electric pulse to the second coil 18, this state remains. It is not necessary to maintain the first coil 16 supplied with electricity so that the rod 14 remains in the first position. When an electrical pulse is applied to the second coil 18, the state of the bistable electromagnet 12 changes: the rod 14 moves from the first position to the second position (it "enters" for a rod electromagnet 12 14 movable in translation, it pivots to the left, with respect to the point of view of Figures 4 and 5, for an electromagnet 12 with rod 14 rotatable).

 Thus, when an electric impulse is given to the bistable electromagnet 12, the state of this bistable electromagnet 12, that is to say the position of the rod 14, is changed depending on whether the first power supply is powered. coil 16 or the second coil 18.

The guardrail 10 is locked by interposing an obstacle on the upward trajectory described by a railing element 17, such as a lug secured to a step of the railing 10, to move from the lowered position to the raised position, while the unlocking of the guardrail 10 is achieved by moving this obstacle away from the upward path described by the guardrail member 17. The obstacle is here formed by a rocker 26, rotatable relative to the seat 1 about a pivot connection P1, between a locking position, illustrated in Figures 3 and 5, and an unlocking position, illustrated in Figures 2 and 4.

 The rocker 26 comprises in particular a first end 28, provided with a first functional surface 30. In the locking position, the first functional surface 30 is arranged across the upward trajectory described by the guardrail element 16, like this is shown in Figure 3 or Figure 5. In unlocking position, the first functional surface 30 is arranged at a distance from the upward path described by the guardrail member 16, as shown in Figures 2 and 4.

 The first end 28 of the rocker 26 may also include a second functional surface 32 arranged on the downward path described by the railing element 16 when the railing 10 is moved from the raised position to the lowered position.

 Thus, when the railing 10 is moved to the lowered position, the railing element 16 bears against the second functional surface 32, which causes the rocker 26 to rotate from the unlocking position to the 'to the lock position.

 The second functional surface 32 is for example arranged facing the first functional surface 30 so that the first functional surface 30 and the second functional surface 32 delimit between them a housing 34 for receiving the guardrail element 16.

 In-position return means, such as a torsion spring 36, may be provided to return the latch 26 to the unlocking position. The torsion spring 36 comprises for example a first end 38 bearing against a lug 40 secured to the seat 1 and a second end 42 attached to the rocker 26. The second end 42 can be inserted into a housing 44 formed on the rocker 26. Thus, the rocker 26 has a stable equilibrium position corresponding to the unlocking position.

It will be noted that the displacement of the rod 14 from the second position to the first position makes it possible to immobilize the rocker 26 in the locking position, whereas the reverse displacement of the rod 14, that is to say its moving from the first position to the second position, allows to allow the rotation of the rocker 26 until the latter reaches the unlocking position.

 To do this, the seat 1 may comprise a locking member 46. The locking member 46 is movable relative to the seat 1, for example in rotation around a pivot link P2, between a locking position, visible in FIGS. 3 and 5, and an unlocking position, visible in the figures 2 and 4. In the locking position, the locking member 46 blocks the rocker 26 in the locking position. In unlocking position, the locking member 46 allows the rotation of the rocker 26 so that it leaves the locking position.

 The locking member 46 is here attached to the rod 14 of the electromagnet 12, so that the displacement of the rod 14 causes the simultaneous movement of the locking member 46.

 In addition, when the rod 14 is in the first position, the locking member 46 is in the locking position, whereas when the rod 14 is in the second position, the locking member 46 is in the unlocking position.

 Thus, the displacement of the rod 14 from the first position to the second position causes that of the member 46 for blocking the locking position to the unlocking position, and vice versa.

 As can be seen in FIGS. 2 to 5, the locking member 46 may comprise an end 48 intended to impede the trajectory described by an abutment member 50 when the latch 26 is moved to the unlocking position. The abutment member 50 is here attached to a second end 52 of the flip-flop 26, the second end 52 being arranged opposite to the first end 28.

 Advantageously, the locking member 46 may be substantially rectilinear, and its axis of rotation relative to the seat 1 may be arranged on or in the vicinity of a tangent 54 at a point M to the circle 56 described by the stop member 50 when the rocker 26 pivots relative to the seat 1, the point M corresponding to a point of this stop member 50 when the latch 26 is in the locking position.

Note that, according to the embodiment illustrated in Figures 4 and 5, the electromagnet 12 may comprise two stops 58 arranged to stop the rotation of the locking member 46 when it, moved by the rod 14, arrives in the locking position and in the unlocking position. The operation of the seat 1 according to the embodiment of Figures 2 and 3 is described below, starting from an initial situation in which the rod 14 is in second position, the locking member 32 in the unlocking position, and the flip-flop 26 in the unlocked position (FIG. 2).

 In this situation, the guardrail locking system 10 is disarmed; the railing 10 can be freely moved between the raised position and the lowered position.

 When the seat 1 reaches the entrance to a boarding area 106, the electromagnet 12 is supplied with electricity via the electrical conductors 22, 24, so that the rod 14 is moved to the first stable position, which causes the displacement of the blocking member 46 to the blocking position. More specifically, an electric pulse is applied to the electrical poles of the first coil 16. In this situation, the guardrail locking system 10 is armed.

 When the passenger or passengers lower the railing 10 to the lowered position, for example at the exit of the boarding area 106, the guardrail member 17 abuts against the second functional surface 32, and causes the rocker 26 in a rotational movement towards the locking position of the rocker 26.

 During this rotational movement, the second end 52 of the rocker 26 bears against the blocking member 46 by pushing it slightly before being positioned just above the end 48 of the blocking member 46. the last being repelled by the rod 14 maintained tending to remain in the first stable position. The blocking member 46 thus acts in the manner of a non-return catch. Simultaneously, the first functional surface 30 is positioned behind the element 1 7 guardrail, it traps in the housing 34, hindering the return path of the element 17 guardrail.

 The latch 26 is then immobilized in the locking position. The guardrail 10 is in turn locked in the lowered position.

When the seat 1 reaches an unloading zone 108, the electromagnet 12 is electrically powered via the electrical conductors 22, 24, which causes the rod 14 to move from the first position to the second stable position, and consequently that of the locking member 46 to the unlocking position. More specifically, when the seat 1 reaches an unloading area 108, the second reel 18 is powered to move the rod 14 to the second position and thus disarm the guardrail lock 10.

 The flip-flop 26 is therefore no longer immobilized; it tends to reposition itself in the unlocking position under the action of the spring 36. In addition, the lifting of the guardrail 10 by one or more of the passengers entails, if necessary, placing in abutment the railing element 17 against the first functional surface 30, which contributes to the rotation of the flip-flop 26 to the unlocking position.

 The railing member 17 is no longer trapped in the housing 34, the guardrail 10 can be moved to the raised position to allow passengers to get off the seat 1.

 When the seat 1 then arrives at the entrance of a boarding area 106, a new cycle can begin, the supply of the electromagnet 12 with a polarity inverted again to reset the guardrail locking system 10.

 The operation of the seat 1 according to the embodiment of Figures 4 and 5 is similar to that described with reference to Figures 2 and 3, with the difference that the rod 14 moves in rotation between the first position and the second position, and that the displacement of the locking member 32 can be stopped by the stops 58 so that the locking member 32 stops in the locking or unlocking position (according to the stop 58 against which it bears).

 Of course, the invention is not limited to the embodiment described above, this embodiment having been given as an example. Modifications are possible, particularly from the point of view of the constitution of the various elements or by the substitution of technical equivalents, without departing from the scope of protection of the invention.

 Thus, instead of a torsion spring 36, it can be envisaged to use a spring working in traction or compression.

 Note that the locking means, in particular the electromagnet 12, the rocker 26, and the locking member 46 are here arranged under the seat 1, and attached for example to a flange 60 extending under the seat 1, but they could be attached to any other part of the seat 1, ie elsewhere than under seat 1.
