Description

  The present invention relates to an illumination device in which a light source unit is detachably attached to an apparatus main body.

  The lighting device has a wide variety of uses, and there are cases where a relatively small room is illuminated such as residential lighting, and a large room such as an office or an exhibition hall is illuminated. In addition, there are many types of residential lighting depending on the purpose, such as lighting that is embedded in the ceiling (downlight), lighting that is directly attached to the ceiling surface (ceiling light), and lighting that is suspended from the ceiling (pendant light). .

  For example, Patent Document 1 discloses an illumination device that can be applied to a downlight and a ceiling light. FIG. 9 is a cross-sectional view of the illumination device 100 described in Patent Document 1. As shown in FIG. As shown in FIG. 9, the lighting device 100 includes a pair of leaf springs 136 in order to attach the instrument main body 135 to an adapter (outer shell) 131 directly attached to the ceiling 134.

  Specifically, the root portion 136 a of the leaf spring 136 is fixed to a spring mounting convex portion 146 formed at the lower end portion of the outer surface of the instrument main body 135. The leaf spring 136 is bent in a substantially V shape from the root portion 136 a and extends obliquely toward the upper end portion side of the instrument main body 135. A tapered surface is formed at the upper end portion of the outer surface of the instrument main body 135, and this tapered surface serves as a spring escape portion 143. As a result, when the leaf spring 136 is swung toward the instrument main body 135, it is elastically deformed so that the free end side (the end opposite to the root portion 136 a) of the leaf spring 136 contacts the spring escape portion 143. Therefore, the instrument main body 135 can be attached to the adapter 131 by inserting the instrument main body 135 together with the leaf spring 136 into the instrument attachment hole (opening) formed in the bottom of the adapter 131.

JP 2001-177941 A (released on June 29, 2001)

  However, the illumination device 100 described in Patent Document 1 has a problem that the adapter 131 and the instrument main body 135 are easily deformed when the instrument main body 135 is attached to the adapter 131.

  Specifically, in the lighting device 100, the instrument body 135 is attached to the adapter 131 by inserting the instrument body 135 together with the leaf spring 136 into the instrument mounting hole 161 of the adapter 131. More specifically, at the time of mounting, it is necessary to push and squeeze the free end side of the leaf spring 136 along the spring escape portion 143 of the instrument body 135 against its elastic force. That is, as indicated by a two-dot chain line in FIG. 9, the leaf spring 136 has the bent portion 136c as a fulcrum so that the free end side of the leaf spring 136 can reach the central portion in the radial direction of the instrument body 135 sufficiently. 136 must be elastically deformed.

  However, when the leaf spring 136 is elastically deformed in this way, a force that pushes and spreads the instrument body 135 outward acts on the instrument body 135. Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 9, in the mounted state, the leaf spring 136 is in contact with a pair of spring receiving pieces 162 formed at the center of the bottom of the adapter 131. For this reason, the elastic force of the leaf | plate spring 136 acts in the direction which expands the instrument main body 135 (spring receiving piece 162) outside. As described above, the elastic force of the leaf spring 136 directly acts on the instrument main body 135 and the adapter 131. Therefore, the adapter 131 and the instrument main body 135 are easily deformed. Particularly, in order to reduce the weight of the lighting device 100, when the adapter 131 and the instrument main body 135 are formed of a thin material, the adapter 131 and the instrument main body 135 are easily damaged.

  Accordingly, the present invention has been made in view of the above-described conventional problems, and an object of the present invention is to provide a lighting device that can prevent deformation of the apparatus main body and the light source unit when the light source unit is attached to the apparatus main body. Is to provide.

In order to solve the above-described problem, the lighting device according to the present invention is a device main body installed in the mounting portion;
A light source unit mounted on the apparatus body;
An elastic member that is provided on either the apparatus main body or the light source unit and elastically deforms;
Provided on the other of the apparatus main body or the light source unit, and a mounted portion to which the elastic member is mounted,
The mounting portion is formed with an opening to be the insertion portion having a width direction and a direction orthogonal to the width direction, into which the elastic member is inserted,
As the elastic member is inserted into the insertion portion, the elastic member contracts in the width direction of the opening serving as the insertion portion, and extends in the width direction by passing through the insertion portion, thereby becoming a portion of the insertion portion. a deformable portion to be engaged, the apparatus main body or slits along Rutotomoni, the extending direction of the deformation portion and a fixing portion fixed toward which the elastic member is provided among the light source unit Formed,
The deformation part is composed of three bending parts that extend from the fixed part and are curved in the thickness direction of the deformation part,
The three curved portions are divided by the slits, and are composed of one first curved portion and two second curved portions arranged in a direction orthogonal to the width direction of the opening serving as the inserted portion. Become
The second bending portion is disposed on both sides of the first bending portion, and the first bending portion and the second bending portion are bent in directions away from each other . .

  According to said structure, in order to mount a light source unit to an apparatus main body, the elastic member and the to-be-mounted part to which an elastic member is mounted | worn are provided. Furthermore, the elastic member includes a deforming portion that is elastically deformed. Further, when the deforming portion of the elastic member is inserted into the inserted portion of the mounted portion, the deforming portion contracts in the width direction of the inserted portion. On the other hand, when the deformed portion of the elastic member passes through the inserted portion of the mounted portion, the deformed portion extends in the width direction of the inserted portion. As a result, the light source unit is supported by the apparatus main body by the elastic member being locked to the inserted portion by the elastic force in which the width of the deforming portion spreads outward. That is, in the above configuration, the force generated when the light source unit is attached to the apparatus main body is a force that elastically deforms the deforming portion when the deforming portion passes through the insertion portion. For this reason, the illuminating device according to the present invention can attach the light source unit to the apparatus main body without generating a force that directly acts on the light source unit and the apparatus main body by the leaf spring unlike the conventional illuminating apparatus. Accordingly, when the light source unit is attached to the apparatus main body, the apparatus main body and the light source unit can be prevented from being deformed.

  In the state where the light source unit is mounted on the apparatus main body, the width of the deformable portion of the elastic member is larger than the width of the inserted portion of the mounted portion. Therefore, the elastic member does not drop from the mounted portion due to the weight of the light source unit, that is, the light source unit does not drop from the apparatus main body.

In the illumination device according to the present invention, the elastic member includes a fixing portion that is fixed to the device main body or the light source unit, and the deformation portion extends from the fixing portion and is opposite to the fixing portion. is it Do from the plurality of curved portion which is curved in.

  According to said structure, the deformation | transformation part is comprised from the several bending part extended from the fixing | fixed part and curved in the mutually reverse direction with respect to the fixing | fixed part. As a result, the bending portion smoothly contracts and expands in the width direction of the insertion portion. Therefore, since a large force is not required when the light source unit is attached to and detached from the apparatus main body, the attachment and removal work is facilitated.

  In the illuminating device according to the present invention, it is preferable that the elastic member includes an engaging portion that is engaged with the inserted portion at an end opposite to the fixing portion.

  According to said structure, the latching | locking part is provided in the edge part of the elastic member. Thereby, the light source unit is held by the apparatus main body in a state where the apparatus main body and the light source unit are separated from each other while the light source unit is mounted on the apparatus main body, and is temporarily fixed. Therefore, a work space can be secured between the light source unit in the temporarily fixed state. Therefore, for example, wiring work between the power source mounted in the apparatus main body and the light source of the light source unit is facilitated.

  Further, when the light source unit is removed from the apparatus main body, the light source unit is temporarily held by the apparatus main body by the locking portion, so that the light source unit can be prevented from dropping during the removal operation.

In the lighting apparatus according to the present invention, the upper Symbol slits may be formed to the end portion opposite to the above-mentioned fixed part.

  According to said structure, the slit formed in the elastic member has reached even the edge part on the opposite side to a fixing | fixed part. Thereby, the movable range (stretching degree) of a deformation | transformation part becomes large. As a result, the light source unit can be attached to the apparatus main body with a small force. Therefore, it is easy to attach / detach the light source unit to / from the apparatus main body.

In the lighting apparatus according to the present invention, the upper Symbol slits may be formed so as not to reach the end opposite to the said fixed part.

  According to said structure, the slit formed in the elastic member has not reached the edge part on the opposite side to a fixing | fixed part. Thereby, even if it is a thin elastic member, a strong elastic force is exhibited. Therefore, the elastic member can be thinned.

  In the illumination device according to the present invention, it is preferable that the attached portion includes a guide portion that guides the elastic member to the inserted portion.

  According to said structure, since an attachment member is provided with the guide part, an elastic member is reliably inserted in the insertion part of an attachment part at the time of attachment. Therefore, it is possible to prevent the elastic member from being erroneously inserted to the outside of the inserted portion, and to perform the mounting operation of the light source unit smoothly.

  In the illumination device according to the present invention, the elastic member is preferably a leaf spring.

  According to said structure, the elastic member is comprised from the versatile leaf spring. For this reason, an elastic member can be manufactured simply. Therefore, an inexpensive lighting device can be realized.

  As described above, according to the present invention, there is an effect that it is possible to provide an illuminating device that can prevent deformation of the apparatus main body and the light source unit when the light source unit is attached to the apparatus main body.

  Hereinafter, an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. In this embodiment, an embedded / straight type lighting device embedded in a mounting portion such as a ceiling will be described as an example of the lighting device according to the present invention. In the following description, for the sake of convenience, the indoor (floor) side will be described as “lower (lower side)” and the ceiling (mounting surface) side will be described as “upper (upper side)”. In the present specification, unless otherwise specified, “vertical” and “parallel” are not limited to complete “vertical” and complete “parallel”, but are substantially “vertical” and substantially “parallel”. Is also included. That is, being substantially vertical and substantially parallel is also a category of “vertical” and “parallel”.

  FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing a lighting device 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 3 is a plan view of the light source unit 3 in the illumination device 1. The illuminating device 1 includes a device main body 2 that is installed by being embedded in a mounting portion such as a ceiling, and a light source unit 3 that is detachably attached to the device main body 2.

  The apparatus main body 2 includes a chassis (outer) 21 in the lighting apparatus 1 and a power supply circuit unit 22 mounted on the chassis 21.

  The chassis 21 is embedded in the mounting portion of the lighting device 1 and is fixed to the mounting portion with screws or the like. The chassis 21 can be made of a material with high heat dissipation, such as aluminum, iron, or special resin. Thereby, heat generated in the light source unit 3 and the power supply circuit unit can be efficiently radiated by the chassis 21.

  The power supply circuit unit 22 is mounted with various electronic components such as a power supply circuit that supplies power to the light source unit 3. The power supply circuit unit 22 may be provided with a dimming terminal block for the light source unit 3. Thereby, the light control of the illuminating device 1 is attained.

  The light source unit 3 is a light emitting unit in the lighting device 1. As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the light source unit 3 includes an illumination cover 31, a diffusion panel 32, and an LED module 33.

  The illumination cover 31 is a frame body (casing body) attached to the chassis 21. The illumination cover 31 can be made of the same material as the chassis 21.

  The diffusion panel 32 is provided on the lower surface (bottom surface) of the lighting cover 31. In other words, the diffusion panel 32 is disposed on the light emission side of the LED module 33. The diffusion panel 32 transmits and diffuses the light emitted from the LED module 33. The diffusion panel 32 is preferably formed from a heat resistant material. For example, milky white (semi-transparent) polycarbonate resin or acrylic is suitable as a constituent material of the diffusion panel 32 because it is excellent in impact resistance, heat resistance, and light diffusibility.

  The LED module 33 is a light source in the lighting device 1. The LED module 33 includes an LED substrate and a plurality of LEDs mounted on the LED substrate. In the illuminating device 1, a plurality of LEDs are arranged in a matrix on the back side of the diffusion panel 32 (the attachment portion side of the illuminating device 1).

  Such an illuminating device 1 diffuses the emitted light from the light source unit 3 (LED module 33) by the diffusion panel 32, and irradiates uniform light indoors.

  Here, based on FIG. 1, the characteristic structure of the illuminating device 1 is demonstrated. FIG. 1 is a cross-sectional view of a lighting device 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention, in which (a) shows a state in which a light source unit 3 is separated from an apparatus main body 2, and (b) shows a light source unit 3 in the apparatus main body. 2 shows a state where the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2.

  In the illumination device 1, the light source unit 3 is detachably attached to the device main body 2 fixed to the attachment portion. The illuminating device 1 includes an elastic member 4 fixed to the light source unit 3 and a mounting member (mounted portion) 5 provided on the device main body 2 and to which the elastic member 4 is mounted. The mounting member 5 has an opening (inserted portion) 51 into which the elastic member 4 is inserted. The opening 51 is formed so as to penetrate in the vertical direction with respect to the mounting portion of the lighting device 1. Accordingly, the light source unit 3 is mounted on the apparatus main body 2 by inserting the elastic member 4 into the opening 51 of the mounting member 5.

  Specifically, FIGS. 4A and 4B are diagrams showing the elastic member 4 in the lighting device 1, wherein FIG. 4A is a perspective view and FIG. 4B is a plan view. On the other hand, FIG. 5 is a perspective view showing the mounting member 5 in the lighting device 1.

  As shown in FIG. 4, the elastic member 4 is a metal leaf spring. The elastic member 4 includes a fixed portion 41, a deformable portion 42, and a locking portion 43. The elastic member 4 is not limited to metal, and may be made of resin.

  The fixed portion 41 is formed at one end of the deformable portion 42, and the locking portion 43 is formed at the other end of the deformable portion 42. The fixing unit 41 is fixed to the apparatus main body 2. The deformable portion 42 extends from the fixed portion 41 and can be elastically deformed. The locking portion 43 is formed at the end of the elastic member 4 opposite to the fixed portion 41. The locking portion 43 is a portion where the tip of the elastic member 4 opposite to the fixing portion 41 is bent downward (to the light source unit 3 side).

  The deformation part 42 is composed of three curved parts 42a, 42a, 42b that are curved in the thickness direction. That is, the curved portions 42a are arranged on both sides of the curved portion 42b. The bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42a are bent in opposite directions. In other words, the bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42b are curved in a convex shape in directions away from each other. The curved portion 42 a is a convex portion that swells in the same direction as the locking portion 43 with respect to the surface on which the fixing portion 41 is formed, and the curved portion 42 b is a concave portion that is recessed in the opposite direction to the locking portion 43. It can be said that. In a state where the light source unit 3 is not attached to the apparatus main body 2, the distance from the tip of the convex portion of the curved portion 42 a to the bottom of the concave portion of the curved portion 42 b is set to be larger than the width of the opening 51 of the mounting member 5. Yes.

  As shown in FIG. 4B, two slits 44 are formed between the bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42b along the extending direction of the deformation portion 42 (the bending portions 42a and 42b). ing. Each slit 44 does not reach both end portions (fixing portion 41 and locking portion 43) of the elastic member 4.

  It is preferable that the total width A of the curved portion 42a and the total width B of the curved portion 42b are equal (2A = B in FIG. 4). Thereby, an elastic force acts equally on the bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42b.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 5, the mounting member 5 of the present embodiment includes a fixing portion 52 fixed to the inner surface of the apparatus main body 2 (chassis 21) and an opening 53 perpendicular to the fixing portion 52. It is configured. That is, in the mounting member 5 of the present embodiment, the fixing portion 52 and the opening portion 53 are arranged in an L shape. An opening 51 into which the elastic member 4 is inserted is formed in the opening 53. The width X of the opening 51 is set to be smaller than the distance from the tip of the convex portion of the curved portion 42a to the bottom of the concave portion of the curved portion 42b (distance between the vertices of the curved portion 42a and the curved portion 42b).

  By providing the elastic member 4 and the mounting member 5 as described above, the lighting device 1 can mount the light source unit 3 to the apparatus main body 2 in the order of (a) → (b) → (c) in FIG. 1. It becomes. Specifically, the deformable portion 42 (curved portions 42 a and 42 b) contracts in the width direction of the opening 51 as it is inserted into the opening 51, and extends in the width direction of the opening 51 by passing through the opening 51. And is locked to the opening 51.

  More specifically, as shown in FIG. 1A, the light source unit 3 and the elastic member 4 are separated from the apparatus main body 2 before the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 1B, the light source unit 3 is brought close to the apparatus main body 2, and the elastic member 4 is inserted into the opening 51 of the mounting member 5. In the present embodiment, a locking portion 43 is formed at the tip of the elastic member 4. For this reason, when the locking portion 43 of the elastic member 4 is inserted into the opening 51, the locking portion 43 is locked to the opening 51. Specifically, the locking portion 43 is locked to the surface (opening 53) where the opening 51 of the mounting member 5 is formed.

  Thus, while the light source unit 3 is mounted on the apparatus main body 2, the light source unit 3 is held by the apparatus main body 2 in a state where the apparatus main body 2 and the light source unit 3 are separated from each other, and is temporarily fixed. Therefore, a working space can be secured between the light source unit 3 and the apparatus main body 2 in the temporarily fixed state. Therefore, for example, wiring work between the power supply circuit unit 22 mounted on the apparatus main body 2 and the LED module 33 of the light source unit 3 is facilitated.

  Further, when removing the light source unit 3 from the apparatus main body 2, the light source unit 3 is temporarily held by the apparatus main body 2 by the locking portion 43, so that the light source unit 3 can be prevented from dropping during the removal operation.

  Finally, from the temporarily fixed state of FIG. 1B, the light source unit 3 is further lifted toward the apparatus main body 2, and the deformed portions 42 (curved portions 42 a and 42 b) of the elastic member 4 are inserted into the openings 51. As shown in FIG. 1B, when the deforming portion 42 is not inserted into the opening 51 and is disposed outside the opening 51, the width of the deforming portion 42 (perpendicular to the insertion direction into the opening 51). ), That is, the distance between the apexes of the bending portion 42 a and the bending portion 42 b is larger than the width of the opening 51. However, the deformation part 42 can be elastically deformed. Therefore, when the light source unit 3 is further lifted in the mounting direction and a force is applied, the deformable portion 42 contracts in the direction in which the width decreases toward the center of the opening 51 as the elastic member 4 is inserted into the opening 51 (opening 51 The deformation portion 42 is urged outward in the width direction of the opening 51. When each apex of the bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42b of the deforming portion 42 is inserted until it passes through the opening 51, the contracted deforming portion 42 is restored and expanded in the direction in which the width increases. For this reason, the light source unit 3 is naturally lifted to the apparatus main body 2 side (upward) without applying a force from the outside. Eventually, the deforming portion 42 is inserted into the opening 51 until the end on the fixing portion 41 side reaches the vicinity of the opening 51, and the width of the deforming portion 42 returns to a state larger than the width of the opening 51. The light source unit 3 is supported by the apparatus main body 2 when the deformed portion 42 of the elastic member 4 restored as shown in FIG.

  As a result, the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2, and the attachment state shown in FIG. Note that the light source unit 3 can be detached from the apparatus main body 2 by performing the reverse operation to that at the time of mounting.

  As described above, the illumination device 1 includes the elastic member 4 and the attachment member 5 in order to attach the light source unit 3 to the apparatus main body 2. Furthermore, the elastic member 4 includes a deforming portion 42 that is elastically deformed. Further, when the deforming portion 42 of the elastic member 4 is disposed in the opening 51 of the mounting member 5, the deforming portion 42 contracts toward the center of the opening 51 and biases it in the circumferential direction of the opening 51. On the other hand, when the deforming portion 42 of the elastic member 4 is disposed outside the opening 51 of the mounting member 5, the deforming portion 42 expands larger than the width of the opening 51. As a result, the light source unit 3 is supported by the apparatus body 2 by the elastic member 4 being locked to the opening 53 by the elastic force in which the width of the deformable portion 42 spreads outward.

  That is, in the present embodiment, the force generated when the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2 is the force that elastically deforms the deformable portion 42 (curved portions 42a and 42b) when the deformable portion 42 passes through the opening 51. It is. For this reason, the light source unit 3 can be attached to the apparatus main body 2 without generating the force which acts directly on the light source unit 3 and the apparatus main body 2 by the leaf spring as in the conventional lighting device. Therefore, when the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2, the deformation of the apparatus main body 2 and the light source unit 3 can be prevented.

  Furthermore, in the illuminating device 1, the deformable portion 42 extends from the fixed portion 41, and a plurality of curved portions 42 a and 42 b that are curved in opposite directions (both sides in the thickness direction of the fixed portion 41) with respect to the fixed portion 41. It is composed of Accordingly, the curved portions 42 a and 42 b are smoothly contracted and expanded in the width direction of the opening 51. Accordingly, since a large force is not required when attaching and detaching the light source unit 3 to the apparatus main body 2, the attaching and detaching operations are facilitated.

  In FIG. 1B, the locking portion 43 of any elastic member 4 is locked to the mounting member 5. However, only one of the locking portions 43 may be locked. Thereby, the light source unit 3 can be rotated around the latching | locking part 43 latched. Therefore, a wider working space can be secured. In the illumination device 1, it is not essential to form the locking portion 43 in the elastic member 4 in order to obtain the effect of preventing the deformation of the device main body 2 and the light source unit 3.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 1C, the width of the deformable portion 42 of the elastic member 4 is larger than the width of the opening 51 of the mounting member 5 when the light source unit 3 is mounted on the apparatus main body 2. Therefore, the elastic member 4 does not drop from the mounting member 5 due to the weight of the light source unit 3, that is, the light source unit 3 does not drop from the apparatus main body 2.

  In the lighting device 1, as shown in FIG. 4, the elastic member 4 has a slit 44 formed along the extending direction of the deformable portion 42, and the slit 44 is on the opposite side of the fixed portion 41. It is formed so as not to reach the end. Specifically, two slits 44 are formed between the bending portion 42a and the bending portion 42b along the extending direction of the deformation portion 42 (the bending portions 42a and 42b).

  In the configuration of FIG. 4, the slit 44 formed in the elastic member 4 does not reach the end portion on the opposite side to the fixing portion 41 (end portion on the locking portion 43 side). Thereby, even if it is the thin elastic member 4, strong elastic force is exhibited. Therefore, the elastic member 4 can be thinned.

  However, the elastic member 4 is not limited to the configuration of FIG. 4 and may have a configuration as shown in FIG. 6A and 6B are diagrams showing another elastic member 4a in the lighting device 1, in which FIG. 6A is a perspective view and FIG. 6B is a plan view. Specifically, the elastic member 4 a has a slit 44 formed along the extending direction of the deformable portion 42, and the slit 44 may be formed up to the end opposite to the fixed portion 41. . In this case, when the elastic member 4a is viewed in plan as shown in FIG.

  In the configuration of FIG. 6, the slit 44 formed in the elastic member 4 a reaches the end opposite to the fixing portion 41 (the end on the locking portion 43 side). Thereby, the movable range (stretching degree) of a deformation | transformation part becomes large. As a result, the light source unit 3 can be attached to the apparatus main body 2 with a small force. Accordingly, it is easy to attach / detach the light source unit 3 to / from the apparatus main body 2.

In the configuration of FIG. 6, and the locking portion 43a formed at the tip of the curved portion 42a, and the engagement portion 43 b formed at the tip portion of the curved portion 42b, folded in opposite directions Yes.

That is, the elastic member 4 may be provided on either the apparatus body 2 or the light source unit 3, and the mounting member 5 may be provided on the other side of the apparatus body 2 or light source unit 3.

  In the illumination device 1 of the present embodiment, the mounting member 5 is fixed to the device body 2. That is, the apparatus main body 2 and the mounting member 5 are separate members. For this reason, it is not necessary to process the apparatus main body 2, and no opening is formed on the side surface of the apparatus main body 2. Thereby, insects and dust can be prevented from entering the lighting device 1 from the side surface of the device body 2. Therefore, the lighting device 1 is suitable for hospitals, restaurants, factories, and the like.

  However, the apparatus main body 2 and the mounting member 5 may be integrated. Specifically, a part of the side surface of the apparatus main body 2 is bent inward, whereby an opening corresponding to the opening 51 of the mounting member 5 (inserted portion) is formed in a part of the side surface protruding inward of the apparatus main body 2. ) May be formed. Further, an opening (inserted portion) into which the elastic member 4 is inserted and locked may be directly provided on the side surface of the apparatus main body 2. Thereby, the number of members can be reduced, and the lighting device can be reduced in weight. When such an opening is directly formed in the apparatus main body 2, the apparatus main body 2 is provided with a mounted portion on which the elastic member 4 is mounted.

  Further, the opening 51 formed in the mounting member 5 may be a notch, a groove, or the like as long as the elastic member 4 is inserted and locked.

  Moreover, this embodiment demonstrated the illuminating device 1 provided with LED as a light source. However, the light source is not limited to the LED, and may be various light emitting elements such as a phosphor, an electroluminescence element, and a semiconductor light source. Moreover, what is necessary is just to set the color of a light source arbitrarily. However, LED (Light Emitting Diode) has advantages such as long life and low power consumption.

  In the present embodiment, the ceiling-embedded illumination device 1 has been described. However, the illuminating device of the present invention is not limited to the illuminating device 1 but can be applied to all illuminating devices in which the light source unit 3 is attached to the apparatus main body 2.
