Application December 16, 1938, Serial No. 246,212
This invention appertains to new and useful improvements in safety apparatus for deep sea divers.
The principal object of the present invention is to provide means adapted to be worn by deep sea divers which will ward off creatures of the deep through the agency of electricity.
Another important object of the invention is to provide an apparatus adapted to be worn by deep sea divers which can be readily applied or removed from the diver and which under water will shock oif sea creatures of all varieties.
Another important object of the invention is to provide means of thelcharacter stated which will be simple yet foolproof and practical in use.
These and other important objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to the reader of the following specification.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 represents a front elevational view of a divers suit showing the apparatus arranged thereon.
Figure 2 is a rear elevational view.
Figure 3 is a top plan view of the shocking apparatus.
Figure 4 is a perspective view of one of the finger carried cat's-whiskers.
Figure 5 is a fragmentary plan view with a part in section of the shoulder band.
Figure 6 is a diagrammatic view showing the electrical connection between the electrical devices involved.
Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals designate like parts, it can be seen in Figures 1 and 2 that numeral 5 represents the rubber suit of a deep sea diver. Numeral 6 represents the usual detachable helmet and numeral I the air hose.
In carrying out the present invention,the shocking apparatus which is generally referred to by numeral 8 consists of a plurality of bands for disposition over the shoulders of the diver. These bands are denoted by numerals 9, l and II for each shoulder, the bands on one side extending downwardly to connect to the front and rear free end portions of the copper waist bands l2 and I3, the band I2 going over the left hip while the band 13 goes over the right hip. These shoulder bands 9, l0 and .II for each shoulder have their ends connected to the corresponding band I2 or l3 in any desired manner as at It,
Tubes l of insulation are provided between the bands as shown in Figure 3. The short tubes l5 of insulation are provided between the bands on IS being internally threaded to receive the threaded rod members l6 which extend from adjacent bands.
Elongated tubes ll of insulation are provided across the front of the diver and the ends of these tubes I! are internally threaded to receive the threaded rod members 18 which extend from the innermost bands 9. 4
Conductors I!) extend from the hip bands l2 and I3 outwardly along the arms of the divers suit and this conductor 19 branches out into the lines 20 which run along the fingers of the divers glove to the rings 2| on the divers glove fingers and from each of these rings 2'. I extends a coil or cat's-whisker 23 which is convoluted around the divers finger.
Anklets 24 are provided on the lower portion of the divers suit and to these connect the conductors 25 from the hip bands and I3.
Binding posts 26 are provided on the forward ends of the hip bands l2 and I3 and to these connect the conductors 21 and 28.
As can be seen in Figure 6, numeral 29 represents the source of current which can be a battery on a ship board and from this is a lead 30 to the rheostat 3|, From the rheostat 31 extends the connection 32 to the transformer 33 and between this transformer 33 and the coil 34 is the switch 35. From the secondary of the coil which, of course, is a high tension coil extends the jumper 35 which connects to the side 21 of the line to the apparatus 8.
While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that numerous changes in the shape, size and materials may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter.
Having described the claimed as new is:
1. In combination with a divers suit of insulation, exposed electrical conductors disposed on the suit and high tension current supply means to the conductors.
2. In combination with a divers suit of insulation, exposed electrical conductors disposed on the suit and high tension current supply means to the conductors, said conductors including a waist band and shoulder bands of conductive material.
3. In combination with a divers suit of insulation, exposed electrical conductors disposed on the suit and high tension current supply means to the conductors, said conductors including coils of conductive material adapted to be worn on the fingers of the divers suit.
4. In combination with a divers suit of insulation, exposed electrical conductors disposed on the suit and high tension current supply means to the conductors, said conductors including a waist band and shoulder bands of conductive material, and insulators between the said bands.
