Abstract

A technique is described whereby a tilt and swivel device is provided so as to mount a cathode ray tube (CRT) housing, as used in personal computer workstations. The device is unique in that it provides almost 360o rotating capability of the CRT housing, so as to provide maximum viewing to an operator. The design incorporates a center cable routing concept so as to keep the view of the cable assembly to a minimum while providing the CRT movement flexibility needed. CRT housing 10, shown in a side view in Fig. 1, is secured to tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11. Tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11 consists of three basic units, as shown in Fig. 2: Platform 12, rotating base 13 and tilt unit 14.

Tilt/Swivel Device for CRT Housing

A technique is described whereby a tilt and swivel device is provided so as to mount a cathode ray tube (CRT) housing, as used in personal computer workstations. The device is unique in that it provides almost 360o rotating capability of the CRT housing, so as to provide maximum viewing to an operator. The design incorporates a center cable routing concept so as to keep the view of the cable assembly to a minimum while providing the CRT movement flexibility needed. CRT housing 10, shown in a side view in Fig. 1, is secured to tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11. Tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11 consists of three basic units, as shown in Fig. 2: Platform 12, rotating base 13 and tilt unit 14. After a satisfactory operational position is reached, nylon brake 15 is provided to secure rotating base 13

and tilt unit 14 to platform 12. Nylon riders 16 are provided as glides to tilting unit 14. Nylon brake 15 is made with a hole in the center to allow the CRT cable to be inserted through the base section so as to allow tilting and swiveling to proceed uninhibited and to prevent damage to the cable. Platform 12 incorporates four mounting holes 16 and center hole 17 for enabling the CRT cable to pass through uninhibited and out of view. Circular recess 18 provides the glide for swiveling rotating base 13 almost 360o, when mounted onto platform
12.
