Abstract

In packaging the control logic associated with a display console, it is desirable to combine functional with design considerations in a single package. The console includes two identical modules or gates 3 and 5. Each gate contains a portion of the control circuitry. Gates 3 and 5 are mounted beneath and support a counter top 7 upon which the display console is mounted.

Display Console Package

In packaging the control logic associated with a display console, it is desirable to combine functional with design considerations in a single package. The console includes two identical modules or gates 3 and 5. Each gate contains a portion of the control circuitry. Gates 3 and 5 are mounted beneath and support a counter top 7 upon which the display console is mounted.

To provide access to the circuitry, the display console is removed from the table, the counter top hinged at position 9 rotated upward 90 degrees and automatically latched as in the left drawing. Gates 3 and 5 are rotated upward 90 degrees about pivot shaft 15. A safety latching mechanism with a finite number of stops automatically latches either gate in any position along its 90 degrees traverse. The front half of each side cover 11 is hinged about point 13 and rotated back 90 degrees in a horizontal plane, the front cover being carried along with the left side cover.

In the left drawing, gate 5 is shown rotated upwardly 90 degrees about pivot shaft 15. To gain access to the enclosed circuitry, each of the gates swings open in opposite directions through a 90 degrees arc so that all electrical points are readily accessible for servicing. The drawing on the right shows gate 5 in its extended position and available for servicing. Latches are provided to secure gates 3 and 5 in their extended or closed positions during servicing.
