CARRIER FOR MOUNTING A COUNTER ASSEMBLY

by Stephen P. Kopish and Michael Shababy

This carrier is adapted to provide a means of mounting a counter assembly of the type previously described in Motorola Technical Developments, Volume 3, March 1963, pp. 4546.

   The counter assembly 11 is received by the carrier 12 between the top wall 13 and the bottom wall 14. A pilot post 15 guides and centers the counter assembly when inserted into the carrier so that a pair of tanged feet 16 are received through and lockingly engage a pair of rectangular apertures 17 of the carrier to retain the counter in the carrier.

   When assembled together, guide ribs 18 on the top wall and hinge fingers 19 associated with the bottom wall preload the counter assembly to prevent undesired transverse movement of the counter within the carrier. The ends of the hinge finger 19 also have tangs to lockingly engage the counter.

   A pair of ribs 20 extending transversely along the exterior of the bottom wall are at the same elevation as a pair of bosses 21 (at opposite ends of the carrier) to prevent rocking of the entire assembly when threaded fasteners through the bosses secure the entire assembly to a chassis or the like.
