Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • The present application claims benefit of priority to and is a continuation-in-part of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/490,565, filed Jun. 7, 2012, and entitled PORTABLE FRAME-LESS REVERSIBLE LUMINOUS SUCTION CUP DISPLAY (Coleman), which is hereby incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.
  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • This invention relates generally to frame-less luminous displays such as electroluminescent, OLED, and LED displays that are releaseably mounted to a surface using adjustable, removable, and/or replaceable adapters. In one embodiment, the invention relates to a thin, frame-less luminous display device which comprises a plurality of thin translucent or transparent layers on which an opaque, graphic layer has been applied and which is illuminated using an electroluminescent light source configured between said transparent or translucent layers. The display device may be further adapted to be releaseably mounted on a surface such as pane of glass using, for example, adjustable, removable suction cup type mounting devices.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Many devices exist for displaying images or messages for showing support for a cause, school, or team or for advertising or other purposes. These devices may be neon signs, back-lit signs, hanging light box signs, LED signs, or LCD panels and may be releaseably mounted in a window using adhesives, by electrostatic cling, by a suction device, or may be mounted behind the window by hanging the sign or mounting the sign on a stand. A problem common to these devices is the size and weight of the devices that often limit how the displays may be mounted. Additionally, signs such as neon signs require an AC power source to function and are not suited to being mounted in a vehicle window or other application not having ready access to such a power source.
  • It is known in the art to mount a display device to the reverse of a flexible substrate to be releaseably attached to a window by electrostatic cling. Michael et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 7,596,889); Woodruff et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 7,065,910). It is further known to place an illumination device in a housing and attach said housing to a surface using suction type devices. Snyder (U.S. Pat. No. 7,065,909). It is also known in the art to place an illumination device between multiple, rigid, transparent panels to facilitate mounting the illumination device on a surface. Hoffman (U.S. Pat. No. 5,533,289). However, what is needed is a thin, light weight device composed of an electroluminescent display sandwiched between layers of a flexible, transparent substrate powered by an external power source or attached or integrated battery.
  • What is needed is a thin and light illuminated sign powered by a DC power adapter or battery pack that can be releaseably mounted to a vehicle window.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides a thin, flexible, electroluminescent display that may be releaseably mounted on either the obverse or reverse of a window or similar surface. In one embodiment, the present invention primarily consists of a flat, transparent, flexible, laminated panel capable of being mounted on a window or similar planar surface by one or more suction-type devices. In this embodiment, when the reverse side of the present invention is viewed from a top, planar perspective, the electroluminescent areas of the panel can be seen and are connected by a single, flexible, conductive wire. Around the edges of this embodiment of the present invention are three locations where releasable suction cup mounts can be attached. The suction cups may be mounted to such that the cup end is facing either the obverse or reverse of the display allowing for a user to select and switch between mounting and facing the display on either an interior or exterior surface, e.g., a car window.
  • In this embodiment the laminated panel itself is thin and frameless. The panel may or may not have control circuitry attached to the panel. The power control circuitry may be contained in a control box separate from the panel in an in-line configuration with the power cord. The control circuitry may connect to the electroluminescent circuitry of the present invention on the reverse side using a quick release multi-pin connector. The connector may be permanently attached to a flat, flexible wire harness that provides power to the electroluminescent areas laminated in the panel, directly connected to the electroluminescent areas, or may be omitted from the device, wherein the device is permanently attached to a power adapter or battery pack. The wire itself may be also laminated within the panel, only to protrude slightly from the reverse of the panel where the connector is attached.
  • Power may be provided to the present invention through a connector and flexible wire harness. The connector connects to a wire harness that joins the device to the control circuitry. The control circuitry is then further connected to a DC connector, battery pack, or AC/DC power adapter. The DC connector may optionally be connected to an AC/DC power converter and may further comprise an integrated battery pack. A selector switch is positioned on one side of the control circuitry. In one exemplary mode of operation, the switch allows the present invention to be operated in one of, for example, three illumination modes. For example, when the device is attached to the DC power cord and AC/DC converter and the selective switch on the control box is in the “constant on” position, the electroluminescent portions of the panel will illuminate. The device may also be connected to a DC battery pack which may integrated into the AC/DC converter or DC power cord or, in another embodiment, may be attached to the device itself
  • The panel itself may consist of, for example, three mounting points for the reversible releasable mounts, the connector protruding from the reverse of the device, and the laminated panel. The laminated panel may be comprised of several layers of flexible plastic, pvc, or vinyl. The electroluminescent layers may be oriented between the obverse and reverse layers of the panel, the opaque printed image layer, and the flexible wire harness which provides power to the electroluminescent layers.
