Abstract

Plug tower with sockets (7) distributed over the circumference in different levels, characterized by
a) a supporting part (2) for feeding a connection cable (4),
b) a first tier unit (6) attached to the supporting part (2) with at least three recesses for receiving the sockets (7), and
c) at least one further floor unit (6) connected to the first floor unit (6) by means of a plug connection (9/10) with further sockets (7).

Description

  • The invention relates to a connector tower with sockets distributed in different levels around the circumference.
  • Such a connector tower is in one piece known. So it is not possible adapt the number of sockets to the needs.
  • The invention is therefore the object based on a connector tower of the type described above to design that the number of sockets by retrofitting the is customizable.
  • This task is solved inventively by
    • a) a supporting part for feeding a connection cable,
    • b) a first tier unit attached to the supporting part with at least three recesses for the inclusion of the sockets, and by
    • c) at least one to the first floor unit by means of a Plug connection connected further floor unit with further Outlets.
  • This will do the job fully resolved, because the number of sockets by retrofitting the respective need can be customized without tools.
  • It is in the course of further refinements the invention particularly advantageous if - either individually or in Combination-:
    • - everyone Tier unit as a hollow body is formed and provided with recesses on the circumference, in the sockets are inserted
    • - the Multi-storey units are composed of parts of the floor, each on butting a parting line,
    • - the Recesses, starting from the parting line, semi-ring-shaped are and complement each other into a circle,
    • - at least an electric one in the tier unit attached to the supporting part Switch is arranged
    • - the end walls the tier units are at least essentially flat and in their mids on one side pins and on the opposite Each side a complementary connector have,
    • - the Tier units on the side of the connector pins protrusions as Have protection against insertion into wall sockets,
    • - the Tier units on the side of the central plug connection mating recesses for insertion the ledges have,
    • - the margins the sockets arranged on the circumference of one interchangeable Aperture are surrounded,
    • - the Support part with at least one fastening device for fastening is provided on a table top,
    • - for the cover of the most distant tier unit a cap is provided,
    • - the Cap is designed as a heating plate,
    • - the Cap is provided with a light source, and / or if
    • - in the Carrying part arranged a winding device for the connection cable is.
  • More details and advantages result from the following detailed description.
  • An embodiment of the subject matter of the invention and its modification options are described below with reference to 1 to 6 explained in more detail.
  • Show it:
  • 1 a perspective view of a connector tower with three storey units, on the circumference of which several sockets are distributed,
  • 2 a cut out 1 with two raised floor units,
  • 3 a perspective view of a single tier unit seen from above,
  • 4 a perspective view of a lower half of the floor without sockets,
  • 5 a perspective view of a single floor unit seen from below, and
  • 6 the supporting part 2 with a switch in the place of an electrical outlet.
  • In 1 is a plug tower 1 with a frustoconical support part 2 shown that an edge recess 3 from which a connection cable 4 - here only indicated by dashed lines - is brought out. In the support part 2 there is a winding device, not shown here, which can have a cross shape and for winding the part length of the connecting cable that is not required 4 serves. At the edge of the supporting part 2 are screw holes 5 provided by means of which the connector tower 1 not only standing up, but also hanging under a table top.
  • On the support part 2 are three separable floor units 6 arranged, on the circumference of each several commercially available sockets 7 are distributed. Between the floor units 6 are parting lines 8th arranged. Every floor unit 6 is again through its own parting line 6a divided, which does not have to be arranged in the middle. The number of floor units 6 is due to plug connections that can be detached without tools 9 and 10 selectable, which can also consist of commercially available and centrally arranged sockets, which is based on the 3 and 5 is explained in more detail. For reasons of security and an attractive appearance, the top floor unit is in each case 6 an approximately congruent cap 11 detachably attached.
  • The 2 shows the arrangement 1 after lifting two storey units 6 , The lowest floor unit 6 is to protect the internal wiring by screws, not shown with the supporting part 2 connected that a separation is only possible with a tool, which is usually not carried out by laymen. The sockets 7 are of frame-shaped panels 12 surrounded with circular recesses, the backs of the geometry of the respective floor unit 6 are adapted, that is to say partially cylindrical in the case shown. Locking connections, not shown, are used for fastening, ie the panels 12 have locking tabs on the back, which are in slot-shaped recesses 13 ( 4 ) in the floor units 6 let it clip in.
  • From a synopsis of 3 and 5 the following emerges:
  • Every floor unit 6 exists on both sides of the parting line 6a from two half-shell-shaped parts of the floor 6b and 6c and has two end walls 14 and 15 which - apart from centering elements - are at least essentially flat. The front wall 14 has at its center an electrical plug connection designed as a socket 9 , and in the opposite end wall 15 is a complementary electrical connector 10 arranged. The latter has two connector pins 16 as an extension of a head start 17 , which together correspond to the spatial shape of a safety plug and complementary to the plug connection 9 are trained. This allows the individual floor units 6 - electrically connected - stack centered in tower form. 3 shows on the right two recesses added to a circular shape 6a without an inserted socket.
  • The front wall has a front wall to prevent it from being plugged into a wall socket 15 two cone-shaped projections 18 that are in complementary recesses 19 in the opposite end wall 14 another floor unit 6 can be inserted.
  • The parting line 6a does not have to be in the middle of the floor units 6 lie; the floor parts 6b and 6c can certainly have different depths, and one tier part can also be designed only as a lid of the other tier part.
  • 4 shows the lower floor part 6c a halved floor unit 6 , There are four double-walled recesses within a stepped frame 6d arranged in the four radially aligned sockets 7 can be used by means of their edges. The recesses do not have to be semi-ring-shaped, as shown. The sockets can be made using appropriately shaped adapters or supplementary pieces (not shown) 7 can also be used in rectangular window-shaped recesses. This is particularly useful if the parting lines 6a not in the middle between the end walls 14 and 15 are arranged. Screw channels and spacers for a firm connection of the floor parts 6b and 6c a tier unit 6 are only hinted at for the sake of simplicity.
  • 6 additionally shows that in the lower floor unit 6 of the connector tower 1 instead of an outlet 7 a switch 20 is used, which is a differently shaped aperture 12a with a rectangular recess 12b makes necessary. It goes without saying that other or all floor units 6 with such switches 20 can be provided in order to be able to switch light sources or other consumers of all types on and off independently of one another.
  • As materials for the supporting part 2 who have favourited Floor Parts 6b and 6c , the cap 11 and the bezels 12 and 12a thermoplastic plastics that can be processed into molds by injection molding are preferred.
