Abstract

The end station has a first plate (1) pivoting on a second rectangular plate of the same size. The first plate has a display system, a loudspeaker and a keyboard. A swiveling joint at the center allows the first plate to turn relative to the second plate. Normally the first plate covers the second plate. When the plates are aligned at 90 degrees to each other, extra keyboards on the second plate are uncovered.

Description

  • The The present invention relates to a communication terminal having two superimposed ones essentially cuboid elongated Units that over a hinge in the center of the communication device are rotatably connected to each other.
  • specially with very small communication terminals is missing a sufficient size area for the accommodation of necessary operating and functional elements, especially since their number with the ever-increasing application possibilities immense increases. Therefore, communication devices have been proposed which from two superimposed essentially cuboid elongated Units exist that over a hinge in the center of the communication device rotatably connected to each other are.
  • task the present invention is now to provide a rotary joint, which is arranged between the two units and this with preferably keeps small distance together.
  • This task is done by a in the 4 - 10 in which, when twisted, both units snap apart (move away from each other) and re-engage after rotation (snap back to their original height).
  • The Swivel joint is over Plastic parts and / or stamped and bent parts held together and locked. The swivel joint allows easy to carry out necessary electrical lines.
  • By a connection over a flat plastic part is over Nubs of the stroke ensured between the two hinge plates. Under or between two hinge plates is a spring with a Locking part used to create the snap. Of the Stop "90 °" is above dome and Groove or over Metal plates realized.
  • By the flat construction of the joint is achieved that over and under the joint components can be placed, making a very shallower Structure of a two-part communication device is possible.
  • In addition, can the hinge, which is fixedly mounted in a plate side, locked or snapped into the other side of the plate without any play become.
  • This Swivel is a space-saving component, which has two units a communication device connects to each other and with a hub and then locked again.
  • below the communication terminal according to the invention is based on an embodiment shown in the drawing.
  • It demonstrate
  • 1 a top view of the two-unit communication terminal according to the invention in the closed state,
  • 2 a perspective view from above of the invention consisting of two units communication terminal in the closed state,
  • 3 a top view of the present invention consisting of two units communication terminal in the open state,
  • 4 a first exploded view,
  • 5 a second exploded view,
  • 6 a perspective view,
  • 7 a first plan view,
  • 8th a second plan view,
  • 9 a top view 7 with a cut and
  • 10 a sectional view of a first possible solution for rotatable and latchable connection of the upper unit with the lower unit.
  • The communication terminal consists of an upper unit 1 and a lower unit 2 , which are connected to each other via the rotary joint according to the invention.
  • Through a connection via a flat plastic part, the stroke between the two hinge plates is ensured by nubs. Below or between both hinge plates, a spring with a locking part is used to create the snap. The "90 °" stop is realized via dome and groove or via metal plates.The flat construction of the joint ensures that components can be placed above and below the joint, thus allowing a very flat construction of a two-part communication device is. In addition, the hinge, which is fixedly mounted in one side of the plate, can still be snapped or snapped into the other side of the plate without play. This swivel joint is a space-saving component, which connects two units of a communication device together and with a hub off and then locked.

Claims (1)

  1.
