Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0774586A2] The fluid drive system, with a drive shaft to be rotated in a housing (1), has a control section (14) projecting from the housing and rotating with the shaft. The control section works with a position register (23) to detect the rotary angle position of the drive take-off shaft (3) at given settings. A base body (32), bonded to the housing, has a rotating body (35) with a coupling section (52) with profiling round the periphery. A second coupling section (53) is at the control, coaxial to the first coupling, also with peripheral profiling. The two coupling sections are coupled (51) together by a unit with at least partial elasticity to compensate for any alignment errors between the couplings between their longitudinal axes. The coupling connection can be wholly of a material with rubber characteristics.
