Storage Device Using Laminae

The setup members of the storage device assume either of two stable positions, inoperative and storage. They are transferred from one position to the other by tipping reversal.

The storage device is mounted upon storage disk 1 which is fastened on storage shaft 3 by screw 2. Disk 1 carries bearing rim 4 having recesses 5 for receiving the radially arranged storage laminae 6. Laminae 6 are rockably mounted in recesses 5, their shafts 7 being held by screws 8. Hub 9 of disk 1 is provided with radially extending, conical bores containing cooperating elements 10 of laminae 6. Laminae 6 are connected with their cooperating elements by tensioned pressure springs 11 under the force of which they are tipped in one or the other direction.

Their deflection is limited by stops 12 and 13, respectively. Disk 1 rotates in the direction of the arrow. By running up on wedge-shaped guide 14, the external free ends of laminae 6 are tipped to their upper inoperative position. Thereafter, laminae 6 pass input magnet 15. On the energization of 15 they are tipped to their lower storage position by armature 16. The stored values are read out through sensing brush 17 contacting laminae 6 in their storage position. Power is supplied to laminae 6 through brush 18, wiper ring 19 and screws 8.
