Safety clutch 8

A cammed sleeve (green) connects the input (pink) and output (blue) shaft of this torque limiter. A driven pin (blue) does not allow the sleeve move to the right. When an overload occurs, the driving pin (pink) pushes the sleeve to the left and the driven pin (blue) drops into the L-shaped slot to keep the shafts disengaged. The limiter is reset by turning the output shaft backwards.

The animation has a weakness: the spring does not rotate as in reality.
