Abstract

The input equipment drive arrangement for a key pin (1) consists of an electromagnet to pull the follower (12) and the key pin from the metal housing (3) in which the key pin moves. When the electromagnet is released, the follower returns to its original position. The return lock (13) prevents the key pin slipping back. By pressing on the return lock, from outside, it is released mechanically, so that the spring (14) moves it to the original position. The electromagnet acts on the coil, inside the coil spring, by induction.

Description

Die Erfindung bezieht sich auf ein Eingabegerät für Computer nach dem Oberbegriff des Hauptanspruchs. The invention relates to a computer input device according to the preamble of the main claim.

Der Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde computergrafische Daten durch den Benutzer veränderbar zu machen. The object of computer graphic data by the user of the invention is to make variable.

Dies wird erfindungsmäßig dadurch gelöst, daß ein oder mehrere Taststifte ( 1 ) in ihrer Lage veränderbar sind und diese Lageveränderung durch eine Vorrichtung, die nachfolgend in den Unteransprüchen A, B und C beschrieben wird, gemessen wird. Invention, this is moderately solved in that one or more tracer fingers (1) are changeable in their position and this position change is measured by a device which is described below in the dependent claims A, B and C.

Durch die Möglichkeit mehrere Taststifte nebeneinander anzuordnen ergibt sich die Möglichkeit, mehrere Raumpunkte gleichzeitig abzutasten. By being able to arrange several scanning pins next to each other there is the possibility to scan multiple points in space simultaneously. Hieraus ergibt sich die über den Stand der Technik hinausreichende Möglichkeit zur haptischen Interaktion mit den Taststiften, vergleichbar der mechanischen Einwirkung auf einen Tonklumpen. From this, the mechanical action gives the reaches beyond the state of the art way to haptic interaction with the probe pins, similar to a lump of clay.

Bevorzugte Anordnung ist die Aufreihung wie in Bild 4 beispielhaft dargestellt, die bei größtmöglicher Kompaktheit die Repräsentation von Kurvenverläufen ermöglicht. Preferred arrangement, the array as shown in Figure 4 is illustrated by way of example, which allows the representation of curves with maximum compactness.

Durch die Erweiterung zur Matrix, wie in Bild 5 beispielhaft dargestellt, ergibt sich die Möglichkeit zur Repräsentation von komplexen Freiformen. By extension to the matrix, as exemplified in Figure 5, there is the possibility for the representation of complex free forms.

Die Möglichkeit zum Anbringen einer Antriebseinheit an einem Taststift ( 1 ) wird in Bild 6 dargestellt. The possibility of mounting a drive unit of a stylus (1) is shown in Fig. 6 Der Antrieb geschieht folgendermaßen: Der Elektromagnet zieht den Mitnehmer ( 12 ) aus Metall an, wodurch der Taststift ( 1 ) verschoben wird. The drive takes place as follows: The electromagnet pulls the driver (12) of metal on, whereby the probe pin (1) is moved. Der E-Magnet wird wieder gelöst, wodurch der Mitnehmer ( 12 ) wieder in seine Ausgangslage zurückkehrt und der Vorgang wiederholt werden kann. The E-magnet is re-dissolved, whereby the driver (12) returns to its starting position and the process can be repeated. Die Rücklaufsperre ( 13 ) verhindert ein zurückrutschen von (1). The backstop (13) is prevented from slipping back of (1). Durch Druck auf die nach außen geführte Rücklaufsperre ( 13 ) kann diese mechanisch gelöst werden wodurch der Taststift ( 1 ) durch die gespannte Zugfeder ( 14 ) wieder in seine Ausgangslage zurückkehrt. By pressure on the outwardly guided backstop (13) the feeler pin (1) by the tensioned tension spring (14) thereby mechanically solved this returns to its initial position.

Claims (1)

  1. Eingabegerät zum Anschluß an einen Computer, gekennzeichnet durch folgende Merkmale Input device for connection to a computer, characterized by the following features
    • - die Eingabe geschieht durch Lageveränderung eines oder mehrerer Taststifte ( 1 ) durch den Benutzer oder eine entsprechende Vorrichtung. - the input is done by change in position of one or more tracer fingers (1) by the user or a corresponding device.
    • - die Anzahl und Ausrichtung der Taststifte kann, von eins beginnend, der jeweiligen Aufgabenstellung angepaßt werden. - the number and orientation of the probe pins can, of one starting, be adapted to the particular task.
    • - Der oder die Taststifte können, gegebenenfalls durch entsprechende Zusatzeinrichtungen, sowohl zur Wiedergabe von physikalischen Gegebenheiten als auch zur interaktiven Veränderung der Darstellung derselben verwendet werden. - The or the tactile pins can, optionally by corresponding auxiliary devices, both for reproduction of physical conditions, as well as for interactive change of the representation of the same are used.
    • - Ein oder mehrere Taststifte können durch Anbringen der dazugehörigen Antriebseinheit ( 2 ), bei Bedarf auch gleichzeitig zur Eingabe, als Ausgabegerät zur Verwendung kommen. - One or more styli may be prepared by attaching the associated drive unit (2), if necessary, simultaneously for inputting, suitable output device for use.
      Der Hauptanspruch wird erweitert durch die folgenden Unteransprüche A, B und C: The main claim is expanded by the sub-claims A, B and C:
      A: Die Auswertung der Verschiebung des Taststifts ( 1 ) relativ zu dem ihn umgebenden Gehäuse ( 3 ) erfolgt durch die elektromagnetische Induktion der fest mit dem Taststift ( 1 ) verbundenen Spule ( 4 ). A: The evaluation of the displacement of the stylus (1) relative to the surrounding housing (3) is done by the electromagnetic induction integral with the feeler pin (1) connected to the coil (4). Durch die Lageveränderung des Taststifts verändert sich die elektromagnetische Induktion auf die fest mit dem Gehäuse verbundene Spule ( 5 ), die im Bild 1 im Schnittbild dargestellt ist. Due to the change in position of the stylus, the electromagnetic induction changed to the fixedly connected to the housing coil (5), which is shown in Figure 1 in sectional view.
      B: Die Auswertung der Verschiebung des Taststifts ( 1 ) relativ zu dem ihn umgebenden Gehäuse ( 3 ) erfolgt durch die Rotation der auf einer Achse ( 7 ), die fest mit dem Gehäuse ( 3 ) verbunden ist, gelagerten Schlitzscheibe ( 6 ). B: The evaluation of the displacement of the stylus (1) relative to the surrounding housing (3) is effected by rotation of on an axis (7), integral with the housing (3) is connected, mounted slotted disc (6). Durch die Lageveränderung des Taststifts dreht sich die Schlitzscheibe, wodurch wiederum der Lichtstrahl der Leuchtdiode ( 8 ) auf die Fotozelle ( 9 ) wiederholt unterbrochen wird, wie im Bild 2 dargestellt ist. Due to the change in position of the stylus, the slit disk rotates which, in turn, the light beam of the light emitting diode (8) is interrupted repeatedly, the photocell (9), as shown in the image. 2
      C: Die Auswertung der Verschiebung des Taststifts ( 1 ) relativ zu dem ihn umgebenden Gehäuse ( 3 ) erfolgt durch die Änderung der Stromstärke des fest mit dem Taststift ( 1 ) verbundenen Schleifkontaktes ( 10 ). C: The evaluation of the displacement of the stylus (1) relative to the surrounding housing (3) is the current intensity of tight with the stylus (1) by the change associated sliding contact (10). Durch die Lageveränderung des Taststifts verändert sich die Position des Schleifkontaktes auf der fest mit dem Gehäuse verbundenen Spule ( 11 ), wie im Bild 3 dargestellt ist. Is given by the change in position of the stylus, the position of the wiper changed to the fixedly connected to the housing coil (11), as in the figure 3 is shown.
