Abstract

A typing work station uses a minimum desk-top space while still having a comparatively large system planar board through suspending a power supply above the planar board. Plug-in cables exit from the side and rear of the machine with minimum distraction. (Image Omitted) A typing work station is reduced in size so that it will easily fit on a typewriter support area of a secretary's desk. A console unit 1 (Fig. 1) of a typing work station includes a bottom pan 2 having a planar board 3 screwed into the bottom pan 2, which is smaller than the typewriter support area. The planar board 3 has a memory thereon utilized with a monitor (not shown) supported on a top cover 4 of the console unit 1 and a keyboard (not shown) next to the console 1 adjacent its front cover 5, which has a snap fit on a front wall 6 of the bottom pan 2.

Typing Work Station Requiring Minimum Desk-Top Space

A typing work station uses a minimum desk-top space while still having a comparatively large system planar board through suspending a power supply above the planar board. Plug-in cables exit from the side and rear of the machine with minimum distraction.

A typing work station is reduced in size so that it will easily fit on a typewriter support area of a secretary's desk. A console unit 1 (Fig. 1) of a typing work station includes a bottom pan 2 having a planar board 3 screwed into the bottom pan 2, which is smaller than the typewriter support area. The planar board 3 has a memory thereon utilized with a monitor (not shown) supported on a top cover 4 of the console unit 1 and a keyboard (not shown) next to the console 1 adjacent its front cover 5, which has a snap fit on a front wall 6 of the bottom pan 2. A diskette drive 7 is supported on a drive-mounting bracket 8, which is attached by screws to the bottom pan 2. A drive cable 9 connects elements on the planar board 3 to the diskette drive 7. A power supply housing 10 is suspended above the planar board 3 and supported by the bottom pan 2 to substantially overlie the planar board 3, as schematically shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The power supply housing 10 (Fig. 1) has a pair of slots 11 in its front wall 12 to receive tabs (not shown) extending from the front wall 6 of the bottom pan 2 to support the front of the power supply housing 10 on the bot...
