Application June 22, 1940, Serial No. 341,826 In the Netherlands June 5, 1939 10 Claims.
Tins invention relates to a wireless receiving set one or more adjustable members of which, particularly tuning members, are adapted to be automatically moved into a number of predetermined positions.
In existing constructions of this kind the adjustment of one or more adjustable members, particularly tuning members, is effected, for eX- ample, by means of a set of push-buttons each of which is provided with a stop. These stops are adjustable and act at various point of the members to .be adjusted or of a constructional element which transmits the drive of the pushbuttons to the members to be adjusted.
These constructions involve the disadvantage that the accuracy with which the said members are adjusted depends on the point at which the stops act. The accuracy of adjustment obtainable is consequently not the same for all of the push-buttons. tion in which a sliding-electrode condenser is operated by a set of push-buttons acting at different points of a plate secured to the shaft of the sliding-electrode condensergreater accuracy will be ensured by the push-buttons that act most closely to the shaft of the condenser than by the push-buttons which act onthe circumference of the plate since the plate exhibits a sag which increases towards the circumference. The reduced accuracy of the latter push-buttons is particularly inconvenient when in the case of bandspread reception in the short-wave region the tuning means have-to be adjusted accurately to the centre of a frequency band.
The invention has for its object to provide a construction having greater accuracy than existing constructions.
According to the invention this object is achieved by causing the predetermined positions of the adjustable members to be determined by a number of stops which for the Purpose of operating the adjustable members are moved into such a position as to act continuously at the same point of the adjustable members.
In a suitable embodiment of the invention the stops are secured to a movable, preferably rotary, body which is moved into the desired position by selection of a given adjustment.
In this case it is preferable that the member to be adjusted should be temporarily displaced on passing to another of the predetermined positions in such manner that any contact with the stops is impossible.
If the member to be adjusted is operated by a sliding movement the shiftable part of the mem- Thus, for example, in'a construc- H motor is adapted to rotate in two directions.
her to be adjusted can be moved out of contact with the stops by rotation of a helical contactsurface.
In order that the invention may be clearly understood and readily carried into effect it will now be described more fully with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 shows a circuit arrangement adapted to be used in accordance with the invention for moving the members to be adjusted, into the correct position by means of an electric motor.
Fig. 2 shows a-mechanical construction embodying the invention.
Fig. 2a is a detail partly in section of the driving means and the friction slip coupling shown in Fig. 2.
Fig. 3 shows the same mechanical embodiment from the other side.
The device shown in Fig. 4 permits of the liding-electrode condenser being moved by hand into a number of predetermined positions.
Referring to Fig. 1, l designates an electric motor supplied from an alternating-current circuit connected between terminals 2 and 3. This For this purpose two switches or relay contacts 4 and 5 are provided which are operated respectively by relays 6 and I either-of which corresponds to either of the directions of rotation.
A set of press-buttons 8, 9, III, II, l2 which may be housed in the receiver and also in a remote-control casing 13 permits of energising the relay 6 or the relay 1 at will. Each of the press-buttons is connected to one of the contact springs l4, [5, I6, ll, 18 which slide over a disc I9 having an insulated point 20.
If, for example, the press-button I0 is depressed an auxiliary circuit is closed through the press-button ID, the spring IS, the disc IS, a source of voltage connected between the terminals 2| and 22 and the relay 1. The source of voltage may be formed for example by a winding on the supply transformer provided in the receiver. Thus the disc I9 may be at earth po tential and the press-buttons do not operate with dangerously high voltages. The relay 1 con nects the motor I into circuit by means of the contact 5. The motor I operates the members to be adjusted and thus moves the disc [9 into such a position that the insulated point 20 comes below the spring IS. The relay 1 loses its energisation and the motor I stops.
Fig. 2 shows how in this manner a slidingelectrode condenser can be adjusted by a motor.
Similar parts are designated in Fig. 2 and following figures by the same reference nurnerals.
When a press-button, for example the pressbutton designated ID in Fig. 1, which corresponds to the contact spring 13 is depressed an auxiliary current flows through this contact spring [3 and the disc-shaped rotary body is which results in the motor I being connected into circuit. The motor I starts to rotate and thus drives the wheel 23, which is provided with a rubber band 24, by means of a cone 24 secured to the motor shaft due to the fact that the armature is pulled into the field. The wheel 23 is seated on a hollow shaft 25 which surrounds a shaft 25 on which is seated a gear wheel 21. Intermediate the shafts 25 and 26 is a friction coupling 28. Due to the friction coupling 28 the shaft 26 and the gear wheel 21 seated thereon is driven by the wheel 23. meshes with a large gear wheel 29. This gear wheel 29 has mounted on it a body 33 having two oppositely directed helical contact surfaces 3| and 32. Intermediate the two ends of these contact surfaces a small roller or friction wheel 33 is arranged in such manner that it rolls over the cylindrical circumference of the body IS. The off position of the roller is diametrically opposed to the shaft 25 in relation to the shaft of the gear wheel 29. As the gear wheel 29 is driven the roller 33 moves upwards, a roller 34 riding at the same time upon the helical contact surfaces 3!. This roller 34 is secured to a sliding electrode condenser 35 and moves the latter against the action of a spring 38 into the extreme position. When this position is reached the roller 33 occupies its uppermost position and thus engages the hollow shaft 25. The gear wheel 28 cannot rotate further and the friction coupling 28 starts to slip. The shaft 25transmits its movement to the roller 33 which in turn drives the body l3 which has hitherto been stationary. This body, which is possessed of an insulated point 23, starts to rotate until the auxiliary current which flows through this body and the contact spring i3 is interrupted due to the fact that the insulated point 23 reaches this contact spring. At this moment the motor is cut out of circuit, permitting the cone drive 24 mounted on the motor shaft to move out of engagement with the, drive wheel 23. Subsequently, by any suitable means, (not shown), the gear wheel 29 and the helical cam member 38 carried thereby are returned to their initial or off position previously mentioned. (A substantially similar arrangement of gear Wheel, helical cam member and roller is disclosed in the Patent Number 2,312,035, indicated respectively at H, 24 and 2! in Fig. 2, and which are returned to their initial position under the action of sprin means (not shown), page 2, lines 42-43.) In the return to the aforesaid offf position the roller 34 will travel along the helical cam surface 3| to the low part of the cam 33 adjacent the roller 33, permitting the condenser 35 to return under the action of the spring 33 until the condenser shaft abuts the selected position determining screw 43. Thus an opportunity is afforded for a small wedge-shaped plate 31 which is secured by a blade spring 38 to a part 39 of the chassis to penetrate into a recess 40 of the body I9 so that the body [9 is mechanically subjected to fine adjustment and is prevented from rotating.
' The plate 31 was previously lifted by the shaft 4| to which the roller 34 is secured. The sliding- The gear wheel Zlaee sos electrode condenser moves back until its shaft 42 engages the screw 43 in the body I9 which acts as a stop. The body I9 is possessed of a {number of such screws which are arranged parallel to the shaft and at equidistance therefrom and all of them project over a dilferent length corresponding to different automatically adjustable stations When one of the press buttons such as 9 or i2 is operated to rotate the motor i in the other direction the helical contact-surface 32 becomes operative and the roller 33 engages the other side of the hollow shaft 25. Similarly, the body i3 turns in the reverse direction but also until the insulated point 23 comes below the current-carrying contact-spring IS. The two directions of rotation of the motor may be made available in addition, for example, for the change of the wavelength range. This will be set out more fully by reference to Fig. 3.
Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the mechanism shown in Fig. 2. The gear wheel 29 comprises an extension 44 which during the movement of the gear wheel 29 describes a path from the lowermost position to the position shown with the direction of rotation assumed in the preceding figure. When the gear wheel 29 is driven the other way the extension 44 describes a path from the lowermost position to the position which is the mirror image of the position shown. In front of the gear wheel 29 is arranged a lever 45 journalled centrally and provided with an eccentric 46. The lever 45 is free to rotate about the shaft 47 to which gear wheel 29 is secured in so far as the extension 44 does not constitute a hampering thereof.
If the lever 45 occupied the position shown at the very beginning of the movement of the gear wheel 29 it would not be displaced. If on the contrary the lever differed at the beginning of the movement of the gear wheel 29 by from the position shown it would have been moved into the position shown by the extension 44. This position is therefore a characteristic of the direction of rotation assumed in Figs. 2 and 3. A characteristic of the reverse sense of rotation is a position of the lever 45 which differs by 180 from that shown. Depending on the direction of rotation of the gear wheel 29 the eccentric 46 can therefore occupy two positions differing by 180. Associated with the eccentric 45 is an eccentric rod 48 coupled to a shaft 49. This shaft, which may occupy two positions depending on the initial direction of rotation of the gear wheel 29, operates a wavelength switch (not shown) for the change of two wavelength ranges. The lever 45 has formed in it two apertures 50 for adjusting the desired station by means of a screw driver. In the position shown in Fig. 3 the body [9 is driven by the hollow shaft 25 by the intermediary of the roller 33. As soon as the insulating point 20 reaches the contact spring IS the motor stops.
Fig. 4 shows a device by means of which the sliding-electrode condenser can be moved by hand into a number of predetermined positions. For this purpose the hand-knob 5! is first depressed so that a gear wheel 53 seated on the spindle 52 of the said knob engages a toothed rack 54 and a sliding-electrode condenser 55 is moved into an extreme position by the intermediary of the shaft 52, a stop 56, a shaft 51 and a fork 58. The stop 56 and the fork 58 are rigidly secured to the shaft5'l.
The knob 5| is then rotated. The toothed rack 54 is thus displaced and drives a gear wheel 59 which is secured, to the same shaft Bl as a body 60. This body 60 is possessed of a collar 62 in which indentations 63 are formed by means of which the body 60 can be locked in a number of predetermined positions with the aid of a spring 63. The body 60 is possessed of a number of screws arranged parallel to its axis and at equidistance therefrom, one of these screws being designated 64. These screws may be adusted to different active lengths by means of a screw driver and serve as stops for the shaft 65 of the sliding-electrode condenser 55. When the screw corresponding to the desired station is turned so that it is in alignment with the shaft 65 the knob 5| is released so that the sliding-electrode condenser moves back until the shaft 65 engages the screw 64 in which position the condenser will assume the predetermined desired adustment.
In the case of short-wave band-spread reception the device described above may be used for tuning to the centre of a narrow frequency band. In this case the knob 5| may also be rigidly coupled to band-spread tuning means not shown. If, fOIfGXflHlDlG, as is often the case with motor car radio receivers, the adjusting knob 51 and the sliding-electrode condenser 55 are capable of moving relatively to each other to a certain extent the two movements which in the embodiment described are transmitted by the toothed rack 54 and the shaft 51 may be performed by means of a hauling cable.
