Abstract (en)

The foot pedal used in a road vehicle has the main operating lever [7] coupled to a second part [2] that has the hinge point fixed it. The mechanical coupling between the two parts is provided by a rack and pinion coupling. This allows the overall length of the pedal to be varied to different drivers.

Abstract (de)

Die Anmeldung beschreibt ein verstellbares Pedal für ein Fahrzeug. Mit einem solchen Pedal soll sichergestellt werden, daß auch kleine Personen die Pedalerie so einrichten können, daß die einzelnen Pedale bedient werden können, ohne daß der Sitz zu nahe an das Lenkrad herangeschoben werden braucht. Das Pedal besteht aus einem verschwenkbaren Druckstangenhebel (2) mit einer gekrümmt verlaufenden Schiene (4), in der ein sichelförmiger Pedalhebel (10) geführt ist. Wenn der Pedalhebel (10) in der Schiene (4) verfahren wird, wird die Pedalplatte (9) in etwa horizontal versetzt, wobei das Übersetzungsverhältnis im wesentlichen konstant bleibt. Die Verstelleinrichtung beinhaltet ein Ritzel (13), das in einer Verzahnung (14) an der Innenkante des Pedalhebels (10) eingreift. <IMAGE>
