This paper proposes a new type of output coupling mechanism, which consists of two differential gears. The mechanism distributes the surplus input power to the other outputs, thus using the input power more effectively. The fundamental equations of the mechanism with respect to velocity and efficiency of input/output are obtained. Furthermore, its effectiveness is demonstrated using an experimental device.
