Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2685366A1] The present invention relates to a coupling apparatus (1; 101) for the pi voted coupling of two vehicle sections, with coupling elements (2, 10; 102, 110) which are arranged to pivot toward each other, and which can each be pe rmanently coupled to a vehicle section. A brake arrangement (12, 18, 25, 26, 28; 12, 118, 125, 127a, 127b, 126, 128) operates between the coupling eleme nts (2, 10; 102, 110) and forms an adjustable frictional grip between the co upling elements (2, 10; 102, 110), which blocks the ability of the vehicle s ections to pivot toward each other. In addition, the brake apparatus (12, 18 , 25, 26, 28; 12, 118, 125, 127a, 127b, 126, 128) comprises a hydraulic cyli nder unit (18; 118) which operates on multiple radially acting brake element s (26, 28; 126, 128). The invention also relates to a vehicle with a couplin g apparatus according to the invention.
