Title (EN) BATTERY PACK RETAINING LATCH FOR CORDLESS DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RETENUE D'UN BLOC-PILES DANS UN DISPOSITIF SANS FIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A battery retention latch (50, 140) comprises an annular ring member (52, 142), a release button (54, 172, 174) and a spring arm (56, 190, 192, 194, 196). The annular ring (52, 142) retains a battery pack (26) in a cordless device (20, 120) regardless of the angular orientation of the battery pack (26) about a casing axis. The spring arm (56, 190, 192, 194, 196) maintains the ring (52, 142) in a normally engaged position, and upon depressing the push button (54, 172, 174), the battery (26) may be removed from the device (20, 120). Also, a battery retention latch (350) comprises a retaining member (354), a release button (356) and a cam element (362). A biasing member (358) maintains the retention latch in a normally engaged position. The cam element (362) retains a battery pack (26) in a cordless device (352) regardless of the angular orientation of the battery pack (26) about a casing axis. A holding device (382, 394) maintains the battery (26) in the cavity (34) against a spring ejecting force such that the battery (26) partially extends from the device (352) enabling the battery (26) to be removed from the device (352).
(FR)Un dispositif de retenue (50, 140) pour piles comprend un élément annulaire (52, 142), un bouton de déclenchement (54, 172, 174) et un bras ressort (156, 190, 192, 194, 196). L'élément annulaire (52, 142) retient un bloc-piles (26) dans un dispositif sans fil (20, 120) indépendamment de l'orientation angulaire du boîtier de piles (26) autour d'un axe du boîtier. Le bras ressort (56, 190,,192, 194, 196) maintient l'anneau (52, 142) dans une position de contact normale et lors de l'enfoncement du bouton-poussoir (54, 172, 1744), la pile peut être retirée du dispositif (20, 120). Dans une autre version, un dispositif de retenue (350) pour piles comprend un élément de retenue (354), un bouton de déclenchement (356) et une came (362). Un élément de sollicitation (358) maintient le dispositif de retenue dans une position de contact normale. La came (362) retient un bloc-pile (26) dans un dispositif sans fil (352) indépendamment de l'orientation angulaire du bloc-pile (26) autour d'un axe du boîtier. Un dispositif support (382, 394) retient la pile (26) dans la cavité (34) contre une force éjectant un ressort de sorte que la pile (26) sorte partiellement du dispositif (352), ce qui permet de retirer la pile (26) du dispositif (352).
