Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a display device such as an image display device (monitor device) of a personal computer, and more particularly to a support arm structure for supporting a display unit of a flat display device on a desk or the like.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Hitherto, a so-called flat display device having a flat display unit has been known as an image display device (monitor device) of a personal computer, an in-vehicle liquid crystal television monitor, or the like. By the way, as a support arm for supporting the display unit of the in-vehicle liquid crystal television monitor on the mounting part in the interior of the automobile, a coil spring-shaped flexible arm has been often used conventionally (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 9-105923, See JP-A-2-96794).

[0003]

When the above-mentioned flexible room is applied to an in-vehicle liquid crystal television monitor, it can be said that the flexible room is effective in that the position of the user is set, impact resistance, and the like. However, when applied to a flat-panel image display device (monitor device) of a personal computer, when the display unit is moved, the coil-shaped arm has a spring property so that the display unit does not stop at the position where the user wants to move, When the user moves the part, the user supports and moves a part of the coil-shaped arm, and also when storing the coil-shaped arm, the coil-shaped arm becomes U-shaped or S-shaped. Since a circle was drawn, it was impossible to store it in a small size, and no consideration was given to operability on a desk, so that there was a problem in terms of user convenience.

As a technique for solving such a problem, there has been proposed a support arm of a display device in which a plurality of arms are configured to be bendable via joints (Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. Hei 4 (1994)).

However, in this configuration, since each arm is simply connected by a joint, for example, when the arm is swung to change the height position of the display, the display is first used by the user. Even if it is in a state in which it is positioned forward, the display unit tilts due to the swing of the arm unit, and it is necessary to move the display unit itself to a state in which it is positioned forward with respect to the user,
Each time, it is necessary to adjust the direction of the display unit, and there is a problem that operability is poor.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention has been made to solve the above-mentioned problem, and provides a display device having good usability and operability even on a desk or the like by improving the structure of a support arm for supporting a flat display unit or the like.

The pin 14 is engaged.

Next, the operation and operation of each of the above components will be described. The clamp 4 has its holding member 4A
Is inserted into the edge of the plate portion of the desk 3 or the like so as to sandwich the edge up and down, and the screw shaft 4d of the tightening member 4B is rotated with respect to the nut portion 8 so that the holding portion 4e is By pressing it against the lower surface of the edge of the plate portion of the table 3, it is fastened and fixed to the edge of the plate portion such as the desk 3.

In the first arm 5, the first rotation supporting member 5C is rotatable with respect to the first support shaft 5A, is swingable in the horizontal direction, and changes its direction with respect to the upper surface of the desk 3. . Further, the second rotation support member 5D can rotate with respect to the second support shaft 5B, and the position with respect to the first rotation support member 5C is changed.

In the third arm portion 7, the horizontal rotation member 7D can rotate with respect to the first vertical rotation member 7C,
Swingable in the lateral direction. The second vertical rotation member 7E can rotate with respect to the horizontal rotation member 7D, and can swing vertically.

As described above, the second arm section 6 has two fixed points of the first link member 6D, the first tilt unit 6B, and the second tilt unit 6C, respectively.
By providing a parallelogram-shaped link mechanism having joints at the two link points of the second link member 6E, the first arm 5 and the third arm 6, respectively. It has the following unique effects.

That is, for example, when the case 6A is tilted to the right in FIG. 1 and swings, the swing of the case 6A causes the first link member 6D to swing. That is, since the lower end of the first link member 6D is connected to the shaft d of the first tilt unit 6B, the shaft d is connected to the mounting plate c of the first tilt unit 6B. And the first link member 6D swings.

By swinging the case 6A and the first link member 6D in this manner, the third arm 7 moves downward in FIG. 1. At this time, the second link member 6E
The position of the connecting portion between the connecting piece 7b and the connecting piece 7b by the pin 11 at the upper end of the second link member 6E moves to the right side in FIG. Since the second link member 6E does not change,
The pin 1 at the upper end of the
1 moves downward, and at the same time, a rotational force in the left direction of FIG. 1 is applied to the connecting piece 7b, and the connecting piece 7b is rotated about the shaft d of the second tilt unit 6C. Rotate left. Therefore, the third arm 7 swings upward while moving downward in FIG.

That is, although the third arm 7 moves downward in FIG. 1, it swings upward, so that the third arm 7 moves in the original horizontal state. This means that even if the second arm 6 swings, the bracket 9 is maintained in the vertical state in FIG. 1, and the display 1 connected to the bracket 9 remains in the vertical state. .

That is, even when the second arm 6 is swung to change the height position of the display unit 1, if the display unit 1 is initially positioned to face the user forward. In this state, it is not necessary to move the display unit 1 to a state in which the display unit 1 itself is positioned forward with respect to the user. In such an operation, the first tilt unit 6B
And by the operation of the second tilt unit 6C,
Arm portion 6 stops at the swing change position, and is held at the same position as long as no external force is applied.

If the display section 1 is desired to be at a position inclined with respect to the user, the bracket 9 may be rotated with respect to the third arm section 7. As described above, even when the display unit 1 is at a position inclined with respect to the user, if the second arm unit 6 is swung to change the height position of the display unit 1,
The display unit 1 maintains a state in which the display unit 1 is inclined with respect to the user.

The operation of the second arm portion 6 will be described more simply and more clearly according to the schematic diagram of FIG.
In the second arm section 6, two tilt units 6
B, 6C, the first link member 6E, and the second link member 6E are linked to each other so as to form a parallelogram link, and are connected to the two fixed points A, B and the two links. There are points C and D.

Accordingly, when the first link member 6D swings rightward about the fixed point A, the second link member 6E swings around the connection point C. At this time, the fixed point B and the connection point D move to the lower side while moving to the right side of the figure, and the connection point D moves from the initial position E in the downward direction indicated by the arrow F, A leftward rotational force indicated by an arrow G is applied to the connecting piece 7b, and the connecting piece 7b rotates leftward about the shaft d of the second tilt unit 6C.

For this reason, although the connection point D moves downward in the figure, by rotating to the left in the figure, the third arm 7 connected to the connection point D moves in a horizontal state, The bracket 9 connected to the arm unit 7 of the third unit 3 is maintained in a vertical state, and the display unit 1 connected to the bracket 9 is maintained.
Remain vertical.

This action is similarly exerted even when the second arm 6 is swung to the left in the figure and the first link member 6D is swung to the left around the fixed point A. Thus, the display unit 1 is maintained in a vertical state. Incidentally, when the second link member 6E does not exist in the second arm portion 6, when the connection point D moves downward in the drawing, the third arm portion 7 connected to the connection point D becomes horizontal. The display unit 1 is tilted downward from the state, and the display unit 1 connected to the third arm unit 7 is not maintained in the vertical state shown in FIG.

Here, the tension coil spring 6
F is one end of the mounting piece 6 of the first link member 6D.
d, and the other end is engaged with the lower end of the second link member 6E, so that the first link member 6D swings as described above, When the link member 6E moves downward, an elastic repulsive force is applied to the second link member 6E so as to prevent the second link member 6E from moving downward. That is, the third arm 7
Is applied so that the swing of the third arm 7 is not suddenly performed, so that the swing of the third arm portion 7 can be performed gently.

Conversely, when the first link member 6D returns from the swinging position to the current position, the second link member 6E applies an elastic force to assist the upward movement of the second link member 6E. Act on the link member 6E. That is, an elastic restoring force is applied to assist the force for returning the third arm portion 7,
The tilting unit 6B, 6C, which is hard to rotate the heavy display unit 1, is rotated and the lifting force is reduced.

The display unit 1 of the display device having such a configuration.
Various modes of the position change are, for example, as shown in FIGS. 6A to 6F, and by rotation of the entire first arm portion 5,
The support arm 2 itself rotates, and the display unit 1 rotates within a range of 360 degrees. The rotation of only the second rotating member 5D of the first arm 5 causes the second and third arms 6, 6 to rotate.
7 rotates, and the display unit 1 rotates in a range of 360 degrees.

Further, the swing of the second arm 6 causes
As described above, the height position can be changed while the display unit 1 is kept in the vertical state (in a state where the display unit 1 is positioned forward with respect to the user). Further, in the third arm unit 7, by rotating the horizontal rotation member 7D with respect to the first vertical rotation member 7C, only the display unit 1 can change the direction in the horizontal direction, and By rotating the vertical rotation member 7E with respect to the horizontal rotation member 7D, only the display unit 1 can be turned in the vertical direction.

Here, the support arm 2 in this embodiment is
The shape of the first arm portion 5 is a unique shape extending in the lateral direction after rising from the clamp 4,
There are the following advantages. That is, as described above, the rotation of the entire first arm 5 causes the support arm 2 itself to rotate, and the display 1 to rotate within a range of 360 degrees. In such a 360-degree rotation range of the display unit 1, the position that the display unit 1 can take is that the first arm unit 5 is simply in the vertical direction because the first arm unit 5 is substantially L-shaped. It extends over a wider area than the case of a rod shape extending to

This means that when the support arm 2 is attached to the edge of the desk 3 or the like, the amount of change in the distance from the edge of the desk 3 or the like to the display unit 1 is large, and FIG. In this case, the distance between the display unit 1 and the user is reduced. vice versa,
7 (B), the distance between the display unit 1 and the user increases. In other words, when the overhang of the display unit 1 from the edge of the desk 3 or the like becomes small and the width of the desk 3 or the like in the front-rear direction is short,
The support arm 2 and the display unit 1 are not obstructed in the space above the desk or the like, and can be used effectively on the desk or the like.

In the case where the first arm 5 'is simply a bar extending in the vertical direction and the amount of projection of the display unit from the edge of the desk or the like is reduced, as shown in FIG. In addition, it is necessary to make the second arm portion 6 'and the third arm portion 7' in a bent state. In this case, the joint portion supporting the heavy display portion 1 becomes two points, In addition to the configuration of the embodiment, it is necessary to add a spring and a damper, and there is an inconvenience that the structure becomes complicated.

[0046]

A parallelogram-shaped link mechanism is provided in which two fixed points and two connection points of the second link member, the first arm portion, and the third arm portion are joints. Therefore, it is possible to provide a display device with good usability and operability even on a desk or the like.Especially, even when it is desired to change the height position of the display unit, for example, the display unit is initially positioned to face the user forward or the like. If it is in the state,
Maintaining this state, there is no need to bother to move the display unit itself to a position facing forward or the like with respect to the user,
Excellent operability. One end of the tension spring is engaged with the end of the second link member on the side of the connecting portion of the first arm, and the other end is connected to the end of the first link member on the side of the fixed portion of the second tilt unit. Because it was configured to engage with the part
The swing of the third arm unit for lowering the display unit is performed gently, and the third arm unit for raising the heavy display unit.
There is an advantage that the force for swinging the arm portion can be reduced.

In this case, the first arm is rotatably supported at one end about an axis extending in the vertical direction with respect to the installation portion of the display device, and the other end extends in the lateral direction. A rotation support member, an axis having one end rotatably supported about an axis extending vertically with respect to the other end of the first rotation support member, and a second arm extending horizontally in the other end. A second rotation support member rotatably connected to the center and fixed at an arbitrary rotation position, if the support arm is attached to an edge of a desk or the like, the display is performed from the edge of the desk or the like. The distance between the display and the user can be increased, and the distance between the display and the user can be increased. When the width of the screen is short, the support arm and display Without hinder Te, it can be used effectively over such as a desk.

The first arm is connected to the third arm so that one end of the third arm is rotatable about an axis extending in the horizontal direction with respect to the second arm and can be fixed at an arbitrary rotation position.
