本发明专利申请是申请号为99810321.7、申请日为1999年8月20日、发明创造名称为“附件支架”的发明专利申请的分案申请。 The present invention patent application No. 99810321.7 application, filed on August 20, 1999, the name of inventions divisional application "attachment bracket" the patent application.
本发明一般涉及附件支架，而更具体的是涉及手持仪器的附件支架。 The present invention relates generally to the accessory shoe, and more particularly relates to a hand-held instrument attachment bracket.
今天的工作环境由于便携式技术的进步已变得更加灵活了。 Due to advances in today's work environment portable technology has become more flexible. 这在计算机和手持试验设备领域更为确切。 This is more precise in the field of computers and handheld test equipment. 关于这一点，计算机可通过应用具有视觉能力的无线传输的便携式适配器，诸如红外适配器，容易地从硬布线系统转换成无线系统。 In this regard, the computer may have a visual capabilities by applying a portable radio transmission adapter, such as an infrared adapter, be easily converted from a hard wiring system into a wireless system. 这样的适配器包括安放电子仪器的壳体、用于实际地连接至计算机的电缆、以及位于壳体中的信号发送机/接收机口。 This adapter includes a housing with electronic equipment, for actually connected to the computer cables, and in the housing of the signal transmitter / receiver port. 在运行中，计算机操作员实际地将电缆的一端连接至计算机，将另一端连接至适配器。 In operation, the computer operator to actually connect one end of the cable to the computer and the other end connected to the adapter. 然后操作员将适配器的接收机/发送机口对准位于设备的第二部件，诸如打印机中的相应通讯口。 The operator then the adapter receiver / transmitter is located at the mouth of the second member device, such as a printer corresponding communication port. 只要信号保持未被中断，计算机就与设备的第二部件保持通讯。 As long as the signal remains not interrupted, the computer will maintain communication with the second piece of equipment. 这样，便携式适配器就是今天灵活工作环境的增长部件。 Thus, portable adapters growth member is flexible working environment today.
灵活工作环境的另一种增长部件是手持仪器，诸如扫描仪和万能测量仪。 Another growth component flexible work environment is a handheld instrument, such as scanners and universal measuring instrument. 手持仪器通常包括安放电子仪器的壳体以及在运行中通过电缆与电子仪器连接的探头。 Handheld instrument generally includes a housing and an electronic device placed in the operation of the probe is connected via a cable to the electronic device. 在运行中，操作员通常将壳体握在一只手中，将探头握在另一只手中，以提取现场分析用的数据，或处于更方便的位置。 In operation, the operator housing will normally held in one hand, the probe held in the other hand, to extract the scene analysis data, or in a more convenient location. 这样的手持仪器将技术带入遥远的地区，不然的话是难以达到的。 Such hand-held instrument technology into remote areas, otherwise it is difficult to achieve.
这样，便携式技术的进步通过应用仪器，诸如红外适配器、扫描仪和万能测量仪，已导至更为灵活的劳动力。 Thus, advances in mobile technology through the application of instruments, such as infrared adapters, scanners and universal measuring instrument, has lead to a more flexible workforce. 虽然便携式仪器对它们预定的用途是方便的，但它们也不是没有它们的问题的。 Although portable instruments for their intended use is convenient, but they are not without their problems.
便携式仪器的一个这样的问题是仪器本身的笨重本性。 One such problem is a portable instrument cumbersome nature of the instrument itself. 如上述的手持仪器，这样一些仪器的操作要求操作者的双手。 As the above-described hand-held instruments, operation of such instruments require some operator's hands. 但是，在某些应用中，操作者要求一只手或双手是自由的，以便同时操作另一件装置，因此，必须有一个方便的位置以放置仪器。 However, in some applications, the operator require one or both hands are free to simultaneously operate another device, therefore, there must be a convenient location to place the instrument. 在这些情况下，操作者至少有两种选择。 In these cases, the operator has at least two options. 第一，操作者可以将仪器和探针放入一只手中，同时用他们的空手进行工作。 First, the operator may be the instrument and probe into one hand, while using their bare hands to work. 或者，操作者可将仪器放在地上，或将其放在工作区域附近的某一结构物上。 Alternatively, the operator may be the instrument on the ground, or place it on a work area nearby structures. 但这两种选择均不理想，因为增加了或探头或仪器跌落，无意踩在仪器上，或将操作者的注意力从次要装置岔开的风险。 But both options are not ideal, because of the increased or drop the probe or instrument, inadvertently stepped on the instrument, or risk to the operator's attention away from the secondary device diverge.
增加手持仪器应用的方便和安全的在先尝试包含连接装置，诸如皮带钩和皮套。 Handheld instrumentation applications increased convenience and safety of the earlier attempts to contain connected devices, such as hook and leather belts. 通常，皮带钩紧固至仪器壳上，并限定一个皮带圈。 Typically, the belt hook fastened to the instrument casing, and defining a belt loop. 操作者将皮带穿过皮带圈，从而将仪器捆在他们的衣服上。 Operator belt through belt loop, so that the instrument tied on their clothes. 虽然皮带钩是有用的，但它们的用途有局限，因为它们特定地适于捆至操作者的身上。 Although the belt hooks are useful, but their use has limitations, because they are specifically adapted to the bundle to the operator's body. 手持仪器的皮套适于携带在操作者的肩上。 Handheld instrument holster adapted to carry the operator's shoulder. 这样的皮套包含一个口袋，其大小制成用以支承仪器，以及一条肩带。 Such a holster containing a pocket, and its size made for supporting the instrument, as well as a shoulder strap. 肩带连接至口袋上，这样，仪器就可以挂在操作者的肩上。 Strap connected to the pocket, so that the instrument can be hung on the operator's shoulders. 皮套也具有局限的用途，因为它们不易于容纳其它的连接件，诸如磁体带或维可牢TM(VelcroTM)带，这些连接件适于将仪器挂在别的物体上，而不是挂在操作者的身上。 Holster also has limited use because they are not easily accommodate other connecting member, such as a magnetic tape or Velcro TM (VelcroTM) band, such connectors adapted to hang the instrument on the other object, rather than hanging in operation person's body.
如上述的无线系统，它具有视觉适配器的传输，这种系统只在适配器精确对准目标机的通讯口时才起作用。 As above-mentioned radio system having a visual transmission adapter, this system works only when the adapter is precisely aligned with the target communication port. 结果，适配器与通讯口必须对准在同一条轴线上，以确保其间的未受中断的数据联络。 As a result, must be aligned on the same axis with the communication port adapter to ensure that the data were not interrupted during the contact. 这样的对准要求有一个适配器支架，它既是稳定的，又能确保适配器与相应机器的通讯口的对准。 Such an alignment requires an adapter bracket, both are stable, while ensuring alignment with the corresponding machine communication adapter port. 现今可买到的这样一些适配器的支架包括这样的一些支架，它们与适配器的壳体一体地模压制成。 Such adapter bracket some commercially available today include a number of such holder, and the adapter housing are integrally molded. 虽然这样的支架是有用的，但它们的用途严格地只限于在特定适配器上使用。 While such stents are useful, but their usage is strictly limited to use on a specific adapter. 这是不利的，因为计算机操作者不能改变适配器，或向现存的适配器添加附件，因为此支架是与适配器一体地形成的。 This is disadvantageous, because the computer operator is unable to change adapters or add accessories to the existing adapter, because the bracket is formed integrally with the adapter.
这样，需要一种较便宜、可靠以及方便的附件支架，它能容纳各种附件。 Thus, the need for a relatively inexpensive, reliable and convenient accessory shoe, it can accommodate a variety of accessories. 本发明目的就是完成这一需要及其它需要。 Object of the present invention is required to complete this and other needs.
