Abstract

The invention concerns a winding cassette for electric, computer and telecommunication cables, independent or integrated in any computer equipment component (5). The invention is characterised by a cable (1) wound around a reel (2) containing in its centre a coil spring (3) to assist the unwinding and winding of the cable. The reel around which the cable is wound is embedded in a cylinder (4) which is integrated by its spindle (6) in the cassette (5) provided with a mechanical device (10) ensuring proper threading of the cable. The cassette can be integrated in a frame (13-10) capable of housing one or several cassettes (14-15-16) or other components [spare batteries (20)] which is provided with a device to be connected to any portable computer. When the frame is connected and adapted to the portable computer, a pre-selection device (18) enables to eject the outer connectors outside the frame template.

Description

DESCRIPTION

Figure imgf000002_0001

Cassette - winder of electrical connection cables, computer and telecommunication, independent or integrated into any component of computer hardware.

Technical area

The cassette - winder of electrical connection cables, computer and telecommunication, object of the invention is in the field of computing.

State of the art

The electrical connection cable, computer and telecommunications are currently only used as independent cables, without the use of retractors.

Detailed Description of the Invention

The cassette - winder of electrical connection cables, computer and telecommunication, independent or integrated into any component of hardware, characterized by a cable wound around a bobbin containing in its center a helical spring for assisting the unwinding and winding cable. One end of the cable is connected via the coil center to one of the connection sockets and the other by the drive.

The bobbin around which the cable is wound is fitted into a cylinder which is integrated by a shaft in the cassette provided at one of its ends or corners of a mechanical device providing enbobinage juxtaposed and successive superimposed cable. The cassette can be integrated into a chassis that can accommodate two or more tapes or other components (batteries - spare batteries) which has a connecting device to any laptop (Laptop - Notebook).

The frame can be made in different shapes and sizes depending on its content or destination of end use. If the width is less than that of a laptop, 2 guides - removable media enable adaptation to it.

When connecting - adaptation of the frame to the portable computer, a device with preset ejects the external connection made outside of the frame template.

The current use of a laptop (Laptop - Notebook) requires for its user when setting up connections and dismantling, tedious and repeated handling and a discipline and accessories for storage of parts different connection.

The use of tape - reel electric connection cables, computer and telecommunications, independent or integrated into any component hardware, object of the invention, allows to have constantly all the necessary connections to the proper functioning a laptop and remove the disadvantages in search of cables and their networking. Furthermore, if the option is available in the frame for this purpose, the user will receive a sufficient power reserve autonomy for prolonged use his laptop out electricity network.

The use of tape - reel electric connection cables, computer and telecommunications, independent or integrated into any component of computer equipment will be particularly appreciated for school education, university or vocational, as well as newsrooms, especially.

The most likely shape and potentially more quantitative performance of the cassette - reel electric connection cables, computer and telecommunications, independent or integrated into any component hardware that is intended for use with laptops (laptop ) in the form of tapes and components integrated into a chassis. Drawings, folio # 11 and 9 demonstrate this type of application.

During the implementation of the portable computer (12) on the frame (13-19), a pressure is exerted on the movable pushers (18) which eject the external connection terminal (9) of the screened cables. The electrical connections, computer and telecommunications of the different components in the laptop operate by contactors (8-21) located above the chassis.
