Abstract

一种万向连接器装置,它包括第一部件和第二部件。第一部件固定地紧固至LCD监视器的壳体上,并包括楔状凸物或突起物和第一电接头。第二部件形成对接台,并固定地紧固至任何其它支承表面上,此处LCD监视器欲连接于此,并由此向外支承。第二部件包含第二电接头,它意欲与第一电接头进行配套啮合。LCD监视器通过滑移地将第一部件的楔状突起物或凸物啮合进入成形于第二部件中的楔形凹陷而连接至第二部件上。这在两个电接头相互配套啮合之前自动将它们对准中心,并阻止损坏阳电接头的阳管脚。此装置使LCD监视器能快捷、方便地与包含第二部件的支承表面连接和脱开,从而监视器能在需要时用于不同的场合。

Description

万向快捷连接器装置

技术领域

本发明涉及LCD系统,更具体地说,涉及一种LCD显示系统,它包含一种快捷连接/脱开的连接器装置,用于通过LCD监视器的快捷、方便的滑移移动,使LCD监视器能同时与支承构件进行电和机械的耦合。

发明背景LCD监视器已日益广泛使用于各种应用中。这种监视器的重量轻于CRT类型的监视器,因此由单个人加以处理要容易得多。LCD监视器常常用于这样的场合中,其中常常要求有两台或多台监视器,诸如在财经业中,那里要求实时察看多个信息图表。多台监视器应用还在工程应用、生产业应用及大量其它应用中找到位置,在那里需要为使用者(使用者们)同时显示大量信息。

此类多台LCD监视器系统常常支承在一条共用臂上。此臂通常由连接至底座上的垂直柱固定在诸如桌或台的工作表面之上。经常会出现移走一台LCD监视器,并将其用于单独工作台区域的需要。由于LCD监视器与CRT监视器相比仍相当昂贵,又连接至显示器台以形成一件单独的组装件,因此不可能容易地将一台LCD监视器从一个显示系统拆走,并将其连接至更紧迫需要LCD监视器的另一工作站。这样,或者不可能,或者极度不实际将LCD监视器与各种工作区域断开,然后在特别需要额外监视器的工作站将它们重新连接。将视频电缆与LCD监视器进行电脱开。然后将LCD与其支架或底座(如果显示系统生产商提供的话)进行机械上的脱耦,再将LCD监视器与一个不同的显示系统及相关的计算机进行电和机械的重接,这样一个工序将是十分费时和繁重的。

缺乏现代化装置方便地将一台LCD监视器可拆卸地、电和机械地安装在某种形式的协同操作的对接台上,将大大限制监视器的应用,因为这会阻碍使用者容易地将监视器从一个应用场合中拆走,然后实际地用于另一应用场合。例如,缺乏这样的耦合/连接器系统会阻碍与使用者的工作场所的计算机一起使用的LCD监视器方便地进行脱耦,然后拿回家中以便与家庭计算机一起使用。提供一种能使LCD监视器进行快捷和方便的电和机械的耦合和脱耦的连接器系统使它能方便地被使用者拆走,并在需要的任何时刻将其使用。

因此,本发明的主要目的是提出一种万向连接器装置,它能在LCD监视器与支承构件的对接台之间基本同时地进行电和机械的连接,从而使LCD监视器得以被应用。

本发明的又一目的是提出一种LCD监视器的连接器装置,它生产成本较便宜、重量轻、紧凑、且不要求诸如改锥、钳子等任何专用工具以使LCD监视器能从支承构件上进行电和机械的两种脱耦。

本发明的再一目的是提出一种连接器装置,它能使两台或两台以上的LCD监视器,其中每台LCD监视器均具有连接器装置的一个部分,电和机械地耦合至连接器装置的一个或多个第二部件,并在需要时进行互换。这样,任何数目的LCD监视器均能耦合至支承构件或对接台上,或在需要时进行互换,而无需对LCD监视器或支承构件/对接台进行任何修改。

发明的内容本发明涉及一种万向连接器装置,它具有第一部件和第二部件。第一部件意欲被固定地紧固至LCD监视器的一个外表面上,最好在其壳体的背部或底部上。第二部件是配套部件,它意欲被固定地紧固至任何形状的支承构件或表面上。第一构件包括具有电接头,最好是阳接头的壳体。第二构件具有杯状壳体,它具有固定地安装于其中的配套电接头,最好是阴接头。

第一部件的壳体还包括整体形成的突起物,在一个实施例中,它包括楔状突起物。第二部件的壳体包括凹陷,其形状与连接器组装件的第一部件上的突起物相互补。因此,当应用楔状突起物时,将在第二部件的壳体中应用相同尺寸的楔状凹陷。

安装在第二部件的壳体内的电接头部件最好安装在凹陷的底部上。当第一部件的突起物滑移地插入至第二部件的凹陷中时,机械和电的这两种连接几乎同时产生。如果应用了楔状突起物和凹陷,楔的形状在阳、阴电接头滑移进入相互配套啮合时,提供自动对准阳、阴电接头的额外优点。

值得赞赏的是,上述的这两件连接器装置能广泛用于各种应用中,诸如在汽车内、在墙安装监视器支承臂上、直接在墙上,或要求的任何地方。其唯一限制是,第二部件欲连接至其上的表面应具有足够的面积和强度,以便使第二部件能固定地连接于其上。

附图简述本发明的各种优越性将通过阅读以下说明及参考附图对本技术的专业人士变得更为清晰,其中:图1是一透视图,它表示LCD监视器的部分背部区域,其中安装有万向连接器装置的第一部件的较优实施例,和部分支承臂,其中安装有装置的第二部件的较优实施例,其时,两件部件正准备相互滑移啮合;图2是一侧视图,它表示图1中的LCD监视器正准备通过应用这两件连接器部件,滑移地与支承臂进行啮合;图3是一侧视图,它表示图2中的LCD监视器和支承臂通过应用连接器装置而耦合在一起;图4是图3中LCD监视器和支承臂的底视图,它表示耦合部件的细长形剖面;图5是一透视图,它表示连接器装置的第二部件;图6是第二部件的侧视图,它耦合至与显示器底座的水平支承臂协同操作的球接头上;图7是一透视图,它表示连接器装置的第一部件的替代性较优实施例;图8是一透视图,它表示图7所示第一部件的配套第二部件;图9是图7所示第一部件的底视图;图10是一透视图,它表示图7的第一部件被连接至LCD监视器壳体的背部区域上,并准备滑移地耦合至图8的第二部件上,第二部件转而又耦合至支承臂上;图11是图10所示系统的侧视图;图12是一透视图,它表示两台LCD监视器支承在支承臂上,其中,至少右边的LCD是通过应用本发明的连接器装置的一个实施例而耦合至支承臂上的;图13表示图11的显示系统,其中右边的监视器已从支承臂中脱出;图14表示本发明连接器装置的替代性应用,它被用于将LCD监视器可拆卸地耦合至汽车座位的靠背上;图15表示另一替代性应用,其中LCD监视器正被可拆卸地耦合至汽车车门的内侧上;图16是一透视图,它表示LCD监视器正准备通过应用本发明的连接器装置被支承在垂直墙上;而图17是一透视图,它表示LCD监视器正准备耦合至连接在墙表面的枢轴转动的显示器臂上。

优选实施例的详细说明请参考图1,图中所示为根据本发明优选实施例提出的连接器装置10。连接器装置10包括第一部件12,它固定地连接至液晶显示(LCD)监视器16的壳体14上。第一部件12最好连接至壳体14的背或底表面上,但将看到,第一部件12也可紧固至壳体的其它位置上,只要有足够的面积可连接部件12。第二连接器部件18形成对接台,在此实施例中,连接至球形接头20,它转而又连接至支承臂22。球形接头20允许第二部件18按需要相对支承臂22加以移动,因此,允许LCD监视器16得以为最佳视角而加以调节。

进一步参考图1可看到,第一部件12包括壳体24,它具有楔状突起物26。楔状突起物之下是一个电接头28,在此实施例中,它展示为一个阳接头。第二部件18包括杯状壳体30,在其中设置了第二电接头32。视频电缆34电连接至电接头32。在此实施例中,电接头32包括一个阴接头。但将看到,第一部件12的电接头28可是一个阴部件,而接头32可是一个阳部件。

请参考图2,所示LCD监视器16正准备连接至连接器装置10的第二部件18上。箭头36表示LCD监视器16滑移地向下移动至杯状壳体30上,用以将第一部件12连接至连接器装置10的第二部件18上。相互耦合的部件12和18示于图13中。当如图3所示地连接时,第一部件一般设置在杯状壳体30内,并与第二部件18进行电和机械的耦合。这样,第二部件18不仅得以与视频电缆34进行电连接,还具有足够的强度,以支承整个LCD监视器16。被连接的部件还以底视图示于图4。图4展示了第一和第二部件12和18各自的大致重叠的薄剖面连接。

现参考图5,由此能更详细地看到第二部件18。杯状壳体30在邻近下壳体部分40处具楔状部件38,在下壳体部分40内设置有阴电接头32。楔状部件38之后的凹陷区域42在构件26插入至第二部件18中时,为楔状构件26的一个部分提供小量间隙。楔状部分26与楔状部件38的相互啮合用于在第一部件12滑移地连接至第二部件18时,将电接头28(图1)的阳管脚自动对准电接头32。然后螺纹螺丝44能更牢固地相互紧固两件电接头28和32。第二部件18的大致薄的剖面结构进一步示于图6中。

这样,本发明的连接器装置10使LCD监视器16能滑移地连接至支承臂22上,从而使整个LCD监视器16能牢固地被支承。第一和第二部件12和18的相互耦合相应地不要求耗时的拆卸或任何特殊工具。当要求将监视器16从第二部件18的杯状壳体30中卸走时,使用者仅需向上抬高LCD监视器16,整个组件将滑移地与电接头32脱离(假定螺纹螺丝44未与接头28啮合)。楔状部件26和38还能在LCD监视器16每次紧固至第二部件18时,确保电接头28和32很好地对准。

现请参考图7和8,图中展示了根据本发明替代性实施例提出的连接器装置50。连接器装置50通常包括第一部件52和第二部件54。第一部件52正如图1所示的,意欲固定地紧固至LCD监视器的壳体部分。第二部件54同样意欲固定地紧固至任何其它形状的支承构件,它被用于支承连接至第一部件52的LCD监视器。第一部件52同样包括壳体56,它具有从其中突出的楔状突起物58。电接头60,在此实施例中为阳接头,紧固至壳体56的楔状突起物58的底部上。电接头60的定向示于图9中。

请参考图8,图中更详细地展示了第二部件54。第二部件54包括杯状壳体62,其所具部件64形成楔状凹陷66。电接头68放置在楔状构件64的下部分70内。可包含螺纹螺丝72,或与接头68一起使用,以有助于将接头68紧固至接头60上。

第一部件52在第二部件54上的紧固在其它方面等同于连接器装置10。连接至第一部件52上的LCD监视器放置在第二部件54的邻近,然后下降,以使楔状突起物58滑移地啮合于楔状凹陷66内。当第一部件52完全滑移地啮合第二部件54时,楔状凹陷66用于使接头60自动对准接头68的中心。

根据本发明的这两个实施例10和50,将看出,电接头28和60中的每一个均相应与它们紧固至其上的LCD监视器的显示元件进行电耦合。这样,每一接头28或60的一侧具有与显示元件进行通讯的导电体。每一第一部件12或52可借助螺纹螺丝或任何其它装置连接至LCD监视器的壳体上,螺纹螺丝或任何其它装置牢牢地将部件12或52的主体紧固至LCD监视器壳体的一个部分上。不然,将第一部件12或52与LCD监视器的壳体一起成型可能是有好处的。

现请参考图10和11,由图可看到第一部件52与第二部件的滑移连接。所示的第一部件52被连接至LCD监视器16上。图11中的箭头74表示第二部件54相对第一部件52为实现将两件部件连接在一起的移动方向。

现请参考图12,所示的双屏幕LCD监视器系统80含有LCD监视器82和84。LCD监视器82和84支承在大致水平设置的臂86上,该臂86转而又支承在大致垂直设置的柱88上。柱88转而又支承在底座90上。在图13中,可看到,LCD监视器84是如何通过将LCD监视器84向上抬起,从而从第二部件54中提出的。

在图14中,能看到第二部件54能如何加以修改以取消杯状壳体62,并能连接至汽车内的座位92上,使LCD监视器16能可拆卸地从第二部件54卸下,并从汽车中运走。图15类似地表示连接至汽车门94内侧上的第二部件54,它使LCD监视器16得以从其在汽车门上的位置中卸下,并从汽车中取走。

现请参考图16,所示第二部件54被连接至墙96上。这样,LCD监视器16能简单地通过将监视器滑移地下降至第二部件54上,以使第一和第二部件52和54各自变成滑移地啮合,从而支承在墙96上。图17中,所示第二部件54紧固至枢轴转动支承臂98上,它也连接至墙96上。LCD监视器16能如前述地连接至第二部件54上。

于是将看到,本发明的较优实施例得以使LCD监视器能快速、方便地连接至支承构件上,或从支承构件上卸下,无需复杂的拆卸过程。本发明的第一和第二部件中的每一部件还能在连接至LCD监视器上的第一部件滑移地啮合第二部件时,使第一和第二部件的电接头精确地对准。这样,在监视器重新连接至第二部件期间,使用者损坏阳电接头的阳管脚的机会很少,或没有。

还值得赞赏的是,本发明的连接器装置10或50的主要优越性在于,它使一台LCD监视器得以用于各种位置中,只要在那里应用了装置的第二部件。通过使LCD监视器得以应用在有需要的各种环境中,从而为LCD监视器提供了更大的多功能性。

本技术的专业人士现将从前述说明看到,本发明的主要思想可以多种形式加以完成。因此,虽然此发明已结合其具体实例加以说明,但发明的真正范围不应受此限制,因为对专业人士而言,在研究附图、说明书及以下权利要求时,其它的修正将是显而易见的。
