(DE) STÜTZSTRUKTUR FÜR DIE FRONTPLATTE EINER INNENRAUMEINHEIT EINER KLIMAANLAGE
(EN) A SUPPORTING STRUCTURE FOR FRONT PANEL OF INDOOR UNIT OF AIR CONDITIONER
(FR) STRUCTURE DE SUPPORT POUR PANNEAU AVANT D'UNE UNITÉ INTÉRIEURE DE CLIMATISEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A supporting structure for front panel of indoor unit of air conditioner comprises an upper supporting rod and a lower supporting rod. The front panel is rotatably connected with the front panel body by a hinge, one end of said upper supporting rod is rotatably connected with one end of said lower supporting rod by a hinge structure. A restricting and locking mechanism is disposed at the joint between said upper supporting rod and said lower supporting rod. The restricting and locking mechanism comprises baffles and an elastic plate disposed on the upper supporting rod, and comprises flanks and a bulge disposed on the lower supporting rod. When the front panel is closed, the upper and lower supporting rods are in a folded state and hidden inside the indoor unit; when the front panel is opened, the upper and lower supporting rods are extended in a straight line which can be automatically locked by the restricting and locking mechanism so that the front panel can be held at the opening location, which is convenient for the repair and maintenance of air conditioner; at the same time, the opening angle of the front panel is restricted, thereby the damages to the front panel, the front panel body and other parts caused by exceeded opening of the front panel can be avoided.

(FR)
La présente invention concerne une structure de support pour panneau avant d'une unité intérieure de climatiseur qui comprend une tige de maintien supérieure et une tige de maintien inférieure. Le panneau avant est lié de manière rotative à un corps de panneau par une charnière. La tige de maintien supérieure et la tige de maintien inférieure sont reliées de manière rotative par une charnière. Un mécanisme de limitation et de blocage est fixé sur l'articulation de la tige de maintien supérieure et la tige de maintien inférieure. Le mécanisme de limitation et de blocage comprend un déflecteur et une plaque élastique disposés sur sa tige de maintien supérieure, et un renflement et des ailes latérales sur sa tige de maintien inférieure. Lorsque le panneau avant est fermé, la tige de maintien supérieure et la tige de maintien inférieure sont pliées et cachées dans l'unité intérieure ; et lorsque le panneau avant est ouvert, la tige de maintien supérieure et la tige de maintien inférieure s'étendent en une ligne droite et sont automatiquement bloquées par le mécanisme de limitation et de blocage après l'ouverture, ce qui permet de maintenir le panneau avant en position ouverte et facilite la réparation et l'entretien du climatiseur. En outre, l'angle d'ouverture du panneau avant est limité afin de prévenir tout dommage infligé au panneau avant, au corps du panneau et d'autres composants à la suite de nombreuses ouvertures du panneau avant.
