However, the exemplary embodiments may be embodied in a variety of different forms and should not be construed as limited to the embodiments set forth herein. It is to be understood that these embodiments are provided so that the disclosure of the present application is thorough and complete, and that the concepts of these exemplary embodiments are fully conveyed to those skilled in the art, in which, for clarity, it is possible to expand the thickness of the layers and regions, and use the same reference numerals to represent the same devices, and thus description thereof will be omitted.

[0034] With reference to Fig. 1 to Fig. 12, a side plate mounting structure is provided according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0035] In an exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig. 1, the side plate mounting structure includes a side plate body 10 and a locking portion 20. The locking portion 20 is connected with the side plate body 10, the locking portion 20 has a locking position connected to the mounting base, and the locking portion 20 has an unlocking position which can be separated from the mounting base.

[0036] In the present embodiment, a locking portion is provided on the side plate body, and the side plate body is locked on the mounting base by the locking portion, so that when the side plate mounting structure needs to be dismounted, the dismounting work of the side plate body can be realized by pulling the locking portion, namely, by adopting the technical solution of the present application, the difficulty problem of disassembly of the side plate mounting structure can be effectively reduced, and the utility of the side plate mounting structure can be improved. The mounting base may be a base of an indoor unit of an air conditioner, and the technical solution can facilitate the detection and maintenance operation of internal components of the indoor unit.

[0037] The side plate body 10 may be fixedly arranged on the mounting base, and when the side plate body 10 is fixedly arranged on the mounting base, the side plate body may expand and protrude in a certain direction. The locking portion 20 provided on the side plate body 10 can be pulled back in a direction opposite to the protruding direction and snap-fitted on the mounting base, thereby effectively avoiding the deformation of the side plate body 10 during a mounting process.

[0038] In a exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig. 2, the side plate body 10 is provided with a through hole 11, a part of the locking portion 20 is connected to a hole wall of the through hole 11, and the other part of the locking portion 20 can be stretched in a first direction to an unlocking position (as shown in Fig. 1, F is a pulling direction), or the other part of the locking portion 20 may be reset from the unlocking position to the locking position in a second direction opposite to the first direction. In this way, the locking portion can be switched between the locking position and the unlocking position by deformation of the locking portion, thereby improving the utility and reliability of the locking portion.

[0039] The locking portion 20 includes a connecting plate 21 and a locking beam 22. A first end of the connecting plate 21 is connected to the hole wall of the through hole 11, and a second end of the connecting plate 21 extends toward a hole center of the through hole 11. The locking beam 22 is connected to the second end of the connecting plate 21, the locking beam 22 can be moved to the unlocking position along the first direction, or the locking beam 22 can be reset to the locking position along the second direction. In this way, the deformation amount of the locking portion can be increased, the flexibility of the locking portion can be effectively increased, and the service life of the locking portion can be extended. When the locking beam 22 is in the locking position, a lower surface of the locking beam 22 is snap-fitted with the mounting base. This arrangement can further improve the stability and reliability of the locking portion.

[0040] In order to further improve the stability and reliability of the locking portion, a longitudinal direction of the locking beam 22 can be extended along a width direction of the side plate body 10, wherein the width direction of the side plate body 10 coincides with the width direction of the base body 31. Meanwhile, a clamping bulge 221 is provided on the lower surface of the locking beam 22. There is a plurality of clamping bulges 221, and the plurality of clamping bulges 221 are provided at intervals along the longitudinal direction of the locking beam 22.

[0041] As shown in Fig. 3 to Fig. 5, the lock portion 20 includes a handle 23. The handle 23 is connected to the locking beam 22, and the handle 23 is located on a side, away from the connecting plate 21 in a hole center direction of the through hole 11, of the locking beam 22, and an outer surface of the handle 23 is disposed at a distance from the hole wall of the through hole 11. In this way, the arrangement can effectively enable the hand to drive the locking beam 22 and the connecting plate 21 to deform when the hand acts on the handle, thereby causing the handle to displace in the through-hole, because the handle 23 has a sufficient distance from the hole wall of the through-hole. In other words, the distance between the handle 23 and the hole wall of the through hole forms an assignment space of the handle, thereby increasing the amount of stretching of the whole locking portion, i.e., the amount of deformation, and effectively improving the reliability of switching the locking portion between the locking position and the unlocking position. Meanwhile, when the side panel mounting structure is dismounted, the locking beam 22 and the connecting plate 21 are deformed by pulling the handle, so that the locking portion can be switched back and forth between the locking position and the unlocking position.

[0042] As shown in Fig. 3, the handle 23 is of an arc structure, a first end of the handle 23 is connected to a first end of the locking beam 22, a second end of the handle 23 is connected to a second end of the locking beam 22, and a gripping space is defined between the handle 23 and the locking beam 22. In this way, it is convenient for the operator's hand to hold the handle, and it is convenient to apply a force to the side plate mounting structure. Meanwhile, in order to improve the flexibility of the handle, a groove 231 is provided on an outer surface of the handle 23.

[0043] In order to further improve the deformation amount of the locking portion and the reliability during use, a plurality of connecting plates 21 are provided at intervals along a circumferential direction of the through hole 11. In order to increase the connection strength between the connecting plate 21 and the side plate body 10, a reinforcing rib is provided between the connecting plate 21 and the side plate body 10.

[0044] The side plate mounting structure in the above embodiments can also be used in the technical field of air conditioner devices, namely, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, an indoor unit is provided. The indoor unit includes a side plate mounting structure, and the side plate mounting structure is the side plate mounting structure in the above embodiment. The side plate mounting structure includes a side plate body 10 and a locking portion 20. The locking portion 20 is connected to the side plate body 10, the locking portion 20 has a locking position connected to the mounting base, and the locking portion 20 has an unlocking position where the locking portion can be separated from the mounting base.

[0045] In the present embodiment, a locking portion is provided on the side plate body, and the side plate body is locked on the mounting base by the locking portion, so that when the side plate mounting structure needs to be dismounted, the dismounting work of the side plate body can be realized by pulling the locking portion, namely, the technical solution of the present application is adopted. The problem of hard to dismantle the side plate mounting structure can be effectively reduced, and the utility of the side plate mounting structure can be improved. The mounting base may be a base of an indoor unit of an air conditioner, and the technical solution can facilitate the detection and maintenance operation of internal components of the indoor unit.

[0046] In an exemplary embodiment, the mounting base referred to in the present application may include a base 30. As shown in Figs. 6 to 12, the side plate body 10 is mounted on the base 30, and the base 30 is provided with a clamping part cooperating with the locking portion 20. In the present embodiment, the side plate body 10 may be detachable arranged, which facilitates the maintenance and cleaning operations of the components of the indoor unit.

[0047] In an exemplary embodiment, the base 30 includes a base body 31 and a support plate 32. The supporting plate 32 is connected to the base body 31, the clamping part is arranged on the supporting plate 32, and the side plate body 10 is arranged on the supporting plate 32 and located outside the supporting plate 32.

[0048] As shown in Fig. 11, the outer surface of the support plate 32 is provided with a mounting platform 321, and the clamping part includes a clamping rib 311. The clamping rib 311 is protrusively arranged on the mounting platform 321, and a surface of the clamping rib 311 on a side close to the supporting plate 32 in a vertical direction is arranged at a distance from an outer surface of the supporting plate 32, wherein there are two supporting plates 32 arranged on the base body. The two supporting plates 32 are respectively arranged on two ends of the base body and are arranged opposite to each other, and an installation limiting space is formed between the two supporting plates, and the opposite surfaces of the two supporting plates is defined as inner surfaces, and the surfaces of the supporting plates located outside the limiting space is defined as outer surfaces. When the locking portion 20 is in the locking position, the locking portion 20 is snap-fitted with the inner surface of the clamping rib 311, and when the locking portion 20 is in the unlocking position, the locking portion 20 is disengaged from the inner surface of the clamping rib 311. Specifically, in the present embodiment, a clamping bulge 221, disposed on the locking beam 22, of the locking portion 20 is disposed between the inner surface of the clamping rib 311 and the outer surface of the support plate 32. This arrangement can effectively improve the applicability and reliability of the locking portion and the clamping portion.

[0049] In order to improve the mounting strength of the base and the clamping strength of the clamping rib 311, the base 30 is further provided with a reinforcing rib 33. The reinforcing rib 33 is arranged between the clamping rib 311 and the outer surface of the support plate 32, a first end of the reinforcing rib 33 is connected with the clamping rib 311, and a second end of the reinforcing rib 33 is connected with the support plate 32.

[0050] As shown in Figs. 3 and 11, one of the base 30 and the side plate body 10 is provided with a connecting bulge 40, and the other of the base 30 and the side plate body 10 is provided with a connecting groove 50 cooperating with the connecting bulge 40. This arrangement can further improve the stability and reliability of the side plate mounting structure mounted on the base.

[0051] In an exemplary embodiment, the connecting groove 50 is provided on the base 30, and there is a plurality of connecting grooves 50 provided at intervals along an outer circumferential surface of the base 30. There is also a plurality of connecting bulges 40, and the plurality of connecting bulges 40 are provided at intervals along an inner circumferential surface of a bottom of the side plate body 10. The plurality of connecting bulges 40 are arranged in one-to-one correspondence with the connecting groove 50, so that the stability and reliability of the side plate mounting structure mounted on the base can be improved.

[0052] As shown in Figs. 11 and 12, in order to smoothly mount the dismounted side plate mounting structure on the base at a time, a guide flange 60 is provided on one of the base 30 and the side plate body 10, and a guide groove 70 cooperating with the guide flange 60 is provided on the other of the base 30 and the side plate body 10.

[0053] In an exemplary embodiment, the guide flange 60 is provided on the outer circumferential surface of the base 30, and the guide groove 70 is provided on the inner circumferential surface of the bottom of the side plate body 10.

[0054] Specifically, the technical solution of the present application solves the problem of disassembling the side plate difficultly. Namely, with the technical solution of the present application, it is simple and easy to operate the side plate when dismounted. The locking portion provided in the present application is equivalent to a buckle position when the side plate mounting structure is dismounted, and a buckle position structure is designed on the side plate mounting structure, and the buckle position structure cooperates with the substrate, so that the side plate is easily operated when dismounted. Namely, with the technical solution of the present application, the problem of disassembling the side plate mounting structure difficultly can be effectively reduced, and the utility of the side plate mounting structure is improved. The mounting base can be a base of an indoor unit of an air conditioner, and the technical solution can facilitate the detection and maintenance operation of internal components of the indoor unit.

[0055] The design of the modular air conditioner is a hot spot developed in the industry, and in order to adapt to the design of the modular air conditioner, the structure of the air conditioner is optimized. The side panels can be designed as separate parts, which provide a convenient condition advantage for the appearance diversity of the side panels. The side plate is designed to be detachable, which greatly facilitates the detection and maintenance work of the internal structure of the air conditioner.

[0056] The design of the side plate mounting structure in the prior art has the following defects: When the fastening screw is dismounted, the buckle position structure is not designed on the side plate part, that is, when the side plate is dismounted, the hands of the rear-sale personnel cannot grasp the side plate forcefully, and this design makes the side plate dismounted very inconvenient.

[0057] With regard to the defect problem existing in said structure, in an embodiment of the present application, it can be seen that a screw column structure is designed on a base, and a connecting groove structure is designed on both sides of the base. A guide flange is disposed on one side of the base, and two connecting groove structures are also disposed on an end side of the base. The fitting structure of the side plate is shown in Fig. 4, and it can be seen from Fig. 4 that a screw hole structure is disposed on the side plate part and fitted with a screw column on the base. As shown in Fig. 3, connecting bulges are provided on both sides below the inner circumferential surface of the side plate mounting structure, and cooperate with the connecting groove on the base. In order to cooperate with the guide flange on the base, a guide groove structure is provided on the side plate. The connecting bulges provided on the inner circumferential surface of the side plate mounting structure may be identical or different. Arranging the connecting bulges and the connecting grooves can prevent a large gap from occurring at the lower edges of the side plates and the base platform, and affect the overall appearance of the machine.

[0058] In order that a worker can fasten the side plate mounting structure with a force, so that the side plate can be conveniently dismounted from the base, and the structure of the buckle position is deliberately designed on the side plate. It can be seen from figure 3 that a handle structure locking portion is provided at a middle part of the side plate, and a plurality of clamping bulges are provided on the locking portion, correspondingly a clamping rib is provided on the base, and the clamping bulges is snap-fitted with the clamping rib on the base, so that the side plate can be pre-fixed on the base. Meanwhile, the locking portion includes a connecting plate, and the locking portion is connected with the side plate body by means of the connecting plate, and the connecting plate structure with elasticity is designed, so that the locking portion is more easily pulled out and deformed.

[0059] When the side plates are dismantled, the two screws of the fixed side plates need to be dismantled first, and at this time, the handle is manually pulled and moved outward in an obliquely upward direction, and the connecting plate of the locking portion is also subjected to upward and outward pulling force, and the connecting plate is deformed. Then, the clamping bulges on the locking beam are pulled upward and outward against the deformation of the connecting plate until the clamping bulges of the locking portion are separated from the clamping ribs on the base, so that the dismantling work of the side plate can be completed. After the side plates are dismantled, maintenance and detection of internal parts of the air conditioner can be facilitated.

[0060] A decorative panel is designed on the outside of the side panel, and the decorative panel can serve as an appearance piece, and the appearance color can be changed according to a customer's requirement by changing second processing technology to achieve an aesthetic effect. The matching structure of the side panel and the decorative panel is detachable snap-fitted. A limiting rib structure and a plug-in plate structure are provided on a side plate, and a limiting hole structure and a plug-in hole structure are provided on the side plate. The limiting rib cooperates with the limiting hole and plays a limiting effect. The plug-in plate cooperates with the plug-in hole and plays a role of pre-fixing the side plate. Meanwhile, a snap fastening structure is provided on a top of the side plate and the decorative plate, and a plurality of snaps are provided on the top of the side plate and the decorative plate, and these snaps reliably fix the decorative plate on the side plate, and the decorative plate can be quickly removed from the side plate. A side plate mounting structure is mounted on the outer side of the side plate to achieve an aesthetic appearance effect.
