【発明の属する技術分野】本発明は、カーオーディオ等の車載用機器の本体装置前面に配置される前面パネル装置に係り、特に、スライド部材の往復移動に連動して可動ノーズが回動するタイプの前面パネル装置に関する。 The present invention relates to relates to a front panel unit that is disposed in the main unit front surface of the vehicle equipment such as a car audio, in particular, the type in which the movable nose in conjunction with the reciprocating movement of the slide member rotates of on the front panel device.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】一般的に、カセットテーププレーヤやC BACKGROUND ART In general, a cassette tape player or C
Dプレーヤ等の車載用機器には、本体装置の前面に取り付けられた前面パネルに各種操作キーや表示部あるいはテープカセット等の媒体を挿入するための挿入口が配設されているが、近年の多機能化に伴って表示部が大型化したり操作キーの数が増加してくると、これら表示部と操作キーおよび挿入口等の全てを前面パネルの限られたスペース内に配設することが困難になる。 The vehicle equipment such as a D player, although insertion opening for inserting a medium such as various operation keys and a display unit or the tape cassette on the front panel that is attached to the front surface of the main unit is arranged, in recent years When the display unit with multiple functions the number of operation keys or size comes increased, it is disposed all such these display operation keys and insert opening into the limited space on the front panel It becomes difficult.

【0003】これに対して、実開平6−4612号公報等に開示された前面パネル装置は、本体装置の開口内に取り付けられた前面パネル側に挿入口を配設すると共に、前面パネルを覆う可動ノーズ側に表示部と各種操作キーを配設し、この可動ノーズをスライド部材によって回動操作することにより、挿入口を選択的に開閉するように構成されている。 [0003] In contrast, the front panel device disclosed in real-Open 6-4612 JP etc., with disposing the insertion port on the front panel side that is attached to the opening of the main unit, covers the front panel It disposed a display and various operation keys on the movable nose side, by operating rotated by the slide member the movable nose, is configured to selectively open and close the insertion opening. 前記スライド部材はモータを駆動源として本体装置の前後方向に移動可能であり、可動ノーズの下部両側面に設けられた支軸はスライド部材の先端に回動自在に連結されている。 The slide member is movable in the longitudinal direction of the main unit by using a motor as a drive source, the support shaft provided on the lower side surfaces of the movable nose being pivotally connected to the distal end of the slide member. また、本体装置の開口の内部両側壁には上下方向へ延びるガイド溝が設けられており、可動ノーズの上部両側面に設けられたガイドピンはガイド溝に沿って移動可能に係合している。 Further, the inner side walls of the opening of the main unit is provided with a guide groove extending in the vertical direction, the guide pins provided on the upper side surfaces of the movable nose engages movable along the guide groove .

【0004】このように構成された前面パネル装置において、スライド部材が後退位置に引き込まれている場合、可動ノーズは起立した状態にあり、挿入口は可動ノーズによって覆い隠されている。 [0004] In this front panel device configured to, when the slide member is retracted to the retracted position, the movable nose is in a standing state, the insertion opening is covered by the movable nose. この状態でモータを一方向へ回転駆動し、スライド部材を後退位置から前進位置へ移動させると、可動ノーズの下部両側面に設けられた一対の支軸はスライド部材と共に前進するが、可動ノーズの上部両側面に設けられた一対のガイドピンはガイド溝に沿って上端から下端方向へ移動するため、可動ノーズは支軸を回動支点として回動しながらその下部側が手前側にせり出した状態となり、かかる可動ノーズの回動動作に伴って挿入口が露出される。 And rotating the motor in one direction in this state, moving the slide member from a retracted position to an advanced position, but the pair of support shafts provided on the lower side surfaces of the movable nose advances together with the slide member, the movable nose since the pair of guide pins provided on the upper sides to move from the upper end along the guide grooves to the lower end direction, the movable nose in a state in which the lower side is pushed out toward the front side while rotating the supporting shaft as a pivot point , the insertion opening is exposed in accordance with the rotation operation of the movable nose. また、この状態でモータを他方向へ回転駆動し、スライド部材を前進位置から後退位置へ移動させると、上記とは逆に、ガイドピンはガイド溝の下端から上端方向へ移動し、可動ノーズは支軸を回動支点として回動しながらその下部側が引き込まれて起立状態となり、挿入口は再び可動ノーズによって覆い隠される。 Further, the motor in this state rotated in the other direction, moving the slide member from the advanced position to the retracted position, contrary to the above, the guide pin is moved from the lower end of the guide groove to the upper end direction, the movable nose its lower side is pulled while rotating the supporting shaft as a rotation fulcrum becomes standing state, the insertion opening is covered again by the movable nose.
