Fitting

Lever mechanisms which match specific applications and convert the drive movement to the required adjustment.


Fitting dimension

This dimension is one of the most important characteristic sizes for the selection of a suitable drive system. In the case of the double drive, the fitting dimension represents the distance between the axles of the fittings for the head rest and foot rest. 
In the case of single drives, depending on the design, there are different methods of determining the fitting dimension. However, the most common definition is that of the distance between the fastening or support points (e.g. clevis drill holes, etc.). 
In the case of a linear actuator, the fitting dimension can be determined either in the completely retracted or extended state. Important technical drive characteristics such as the drive type, load capacity, stroke and special equipment (e.g. special clevises) have a direct influence on the fitting dimension. 
The dimension used here is the distance between the relevant fixing or support points (e.g. clevis drill holes) in their completely retracted state.


FURNIBUS

(Furniture Bus) 
This communication interface – developed especially for DewertOkin drive systems – can be used to interconnect a maximum of 16 control and operating components to complex control systems. 
All the units which are connected can communicate with each other via a common “bus” platform, so providing an extremely high level of flexibility during the development of drive systems. 
This permits fast and efficient implementation of system changes or extensions. Many DewertOkin microprocessor control units are equipped with a FURNIBUS interface, and the free programmability – combined with the modularity of a bus system – opens up completely new opportunities with regard to the controlling of furniture drives.
