Drive and adjustment systems
Power windows have mechanisms that are driven by electric motors. There are two types of systems in use (Fig. 1). The available installation space assumes a prominent place among the criteria applied in determining which system to install.
Rod linkage regulator mechanism: The drive motor pinion engages with a quadrant gear, which is connected to a rod linkage. The use of this type of window regulator mechanism is decreasing.
Flexible cable mechanism: The drive motor turns a cable reel, which operates a flexible cable mechanism.
