Abstract

The device enables storage and translation of signals serially received from a source such as a communication line. The device consists of emitter ring 1, a set of code plates 2, sensing pin box 3, and contact array 4. Ring 1 is concentrically mounted about a rotating hub 5. This has a plunger 6 reciprocally mounted in it. Plunger 6 is actuated by movement of bellcrank member 7 under control of magnet 8 and associated armature 9 as well as cam 10. This has lobes corresponding in number to the number of signals in a code received. Magnet 8 is energized in response to individual signals in an incoming code configuration and attracts armature 9.

Deserializer, Storage, and Translating Device

The device enables storage and translation of signals serially received from a source such as a communication line. The device consists of emitter ring 1, a set of code plates 2, sensing pin box 3, and contact array 4. Ring 1 is concentrically mounted about a rotating hub 5. This has a plunger 6 reciprocally mounted in it. Plunger 6 is actuated by movement of bellcrank member 7 under control of magnet 8 and associated armature 9 as well as cam 10. This has lobes corresponding in number to the number of signals in a code received. Magnet 8 is energized in response to individual signals in an incoming code configuration and attracts armature 9.

Whenever armature 9 is moved upwardly toward magnet 8, bellcrank 7 is moved in a direction indicated by arrow 11. Plunger 6 is normally maintained to the right by means of spring 12. So long as plunger 6 remains to the right, bellcrank 13, which is attached to it, maintains actuator finger 14 outward from the center of hub 5.

Ring 1 has a number of latch members 15 and 16 also corresponding in number to the number of signals in a received code configuration. As shaft 5 is rotated, finger 14 engages the lower extremities of latch members 15, 16, etc., in sequence so long as finger 14 remains extended. Whenever a lower extremity of a latch member is engaged by finger 14, the upper extremity of the latch member moves to the left.

This permits an associated pawl, such as pawl 17 that is associated with latch member 15, to drop about pivot shaft 18. Attached to the other end of shaft 18 i...
