An apparatus adapted for the mounting and wiring of printed circuit boards includes front and rear supports which together define paired slots into which the circuit boards are receivable and thus transversely mountable relative thereto so as to maintain the boards in a substantially parallel, spaced apart relationship to one another. The boards can be securely locked in the mounted positions by a resilient ring or like structures which seats in a circumferential slot defined in the front and rear supports. An end bell housing is also disclosed whereby various electrical components can be assembled with the circuit boards by virtue of the locking engagement established with the rear support when the bell housing is rotated (e. g. as in a 1/4 turn) relative the rear support.
Apparatus For The Mounting And Wiring Of Printed Circuit Boards
An apparatus for mounting a plurality of electrical circuit boards in a spaced-apart coaxial relationship while yet permitting the circuit boards to be eccentrically moved out of the coaxial relationship during manufacture and/or maintenance. A first elongated, preferably hollow, mounting member transverse to the circuit boards mounts them for pivotable movement about a transverse axis defined by the first member. A second mounting member may be employed so as to effect rigid union between the circuit boards in an engaged position and which pivots to a disengaged position to permit eccentric pivotable movement of the circuit boards about the transverse axis defined by the first mounting member.
