The sensitive element 80 (as shown in Fig. 1 and 2) solidly joints with the inside box 21 and is set on the top of the inside box 21 and substantially around the round hollow trough 213. The sensitive element 80 has a detector bar 81 which pierces through the inside box 21 and protrudes into the inner space 23. The detector bar 81 can test or detect the (level of) vacuum. A display lamp 82 is fixed on the front part of the box 20. The display lamp 82 is connected with the sensitive element 80 by a conducting wire. An inductance switch 83 and a manual switch 84 are connected with the power supply and the inhaler component 30, respectively. An infrared switch 85 is set in the core case 71 of the eraser 70. A turn-on switch 86 and a turn-off switch 87 are set in the core case 71. The turn-on switch 86 and the turn-off switch 87 are connected with the infrared switch 85. Users use the turn-on switch 86 and the turn-off switch 87 to control the infrared switch 85 to turn on or turn off the inductance switch 83, so that the inhaler component 30 is electrified to get moving or disconnected to stop. According to the above-mentioned (as shown in Fig. 1 and 3), the filter coat of the dust bag 50 has tiny meshes on it. It is ventilated, i.e. air can pass it, but the dust cannot go through it. The inner space 52 and the outer space 23 are connected and are ventilated. The inner space, the dust bag, the dust guide pipework and the core case 71 of the eraser 70 are connected, and the groove 74 of the eraser 70 connects with the connecting hole 72. When users use the eraser to clean the words or charts on the board, they hold the core case 71 of the eraser 70 and press the turn-on switch 86 with their fingers. The infrared switch 85 is started and it turns on the inductance switch 83 to start the inhaler component 30. The inhaler component 30 pumps the air of the inner space 23, and the dust bag 50 ventilates for it. In the meantime, the inhaler component 30 also pumps the dust bag 50. Because the dust guide pipe-work, the core case 71 of the eraser 70, the groove 25 74 and the connecting hole 72 are connected, the air among them is also pumped by the inhaler component 30. Dust comes out when the cleaning layer 73 of the eraser 70 cleans the words or charts written by chalk. The dust is pressed between the cleaning layer 73 and the blackboard- The eraser 70 can pump the dust between the cleaning layer 73 and the blackboard to the groove 74. By the connecting structure, the dust is led by the dust guide pipework 60 to the inner space 52 of the dust bag 50.

As shown in Fig. 1 and 4, the dust is or can be pumped into the space of the dust bag 50. Because the filter coat 51 is ventilating, but the dust cannot go through it, the dust is gathered in the inner space of the dust bag 50. The inhaler component 30 directly pumps the dust when the eraser 70 cleans the words or charts. Because of this, the dust comes out from the eraser 70 does not spread and fly. The Environment around the board can stay clean.

As shown in the Fig. 3, when the dust is accumulated in the inner space of the dust bag 50, the filter coat 51 is covered with dust, so that the meshes are clogged partly or the meshes are becoming smaller and smaller. In order to keep the amount the inhaler component 30 pumps, the inhaler component 30 adjust its output power by the internal control system. Only if the inhaler component 30 can pump appropriate air in the dust bag 50, and the inner space 23 keeps its set vacuum, the inhaler component 30 can keep its stable pumping amount.

As shown in Fig. 3 and 4, when the dust bag 50 accumulate the dust to a large amount and the filter coat 51 are clogged to a set level, the air goes out from the dust bag 50 will be less than the set level as the inhaler component 30 pumps. In this case, the function of its pumping dust is getting lower. The inhaler component 30 pumps the air in the inner space 23, so that the vacuum is raised. At this time, the detector bar 81 of the sensitive element 80 pierces or projects into the inner space 23. When the vacuum value that it gets or detects is higher than a set (predetermined or predeterminable) value, the sensitive element 80 will give the display lamp 82 a signal through a conducting wire. The display lamp 82 glistens, so that users will know that the dust in the dust bag 50 is accumulated to a limit. Accordingly, it may remind users to clean the dust or to change a new dust bag.

When users want to change or clean the dust in the dust bag 50, they can open the door leaf from the opening 201 of the box 20. The pass 212 becomes hollow, and the inner space 23 of the inside box 21 is open. The dust bag 50 is connected with the bonding component s55, 64 of the connection 61 e.g. by magic binder. The bonding components 55 and 64 can be easily taken apart. Users can take out the dust bag 50 easily to clean the dust inside. When users are going to change or put back the dust bag 50, they only have to match the perforation 54 of the dust bag 50 and the straight pipe of the connecting 61. Then, female joints or inserts the inner ring 56 to or into the straight pipe 62. The inner ring 56 is soft, so that the straight pipe when it female joints with the straight pipe 62, it becomes airtight. When users bind the bonding component 55 and 64, the bag will be completely put back to the embodiment. It is easy for adults and children to operate.

When the inhaler component 30 pumps the air in the inner space 23, the air goes in through air suction ring 33 and out through the exhaust ring 34 to be discharged to the outer space 22 of the box 20. The air goes through the circular groove 25, the bottom-set 26 and at last goes out through the air outlet 202. Soundproof pads 27 are set on the inner surfaces of the cover 204. The inhaler component 30 makes some noise when it pumps air. The soundproof pads 27 can isolate the noise. Besides, the circular groove 25 and the bottom-set 26 between the box 20 and the inside box 21 form an extended pass to effectively isolate the sound- So, it will not make noise when it is operated.

When users clean the words or charts on the blackboard, they press the turn-on switch 86 with their fingers. The infrared switch 85 is started and it turns on the inductance switch 83 to start the inhaler component 30 - When it cleans the board, it starts to pump the dust. This make the environment around the board clean and it is good in particular for children's health. After the eraser 70 cleaning the board for a period of time (as shown in Fig. 5). The surface of the cleaning layer 73 is covered with dust. Users can put the eraser 70 into the dust-cleaning trough. The bottom of the cleaning layer 73 can touch with the dust scraper 76, and they move relatively to scrape the dust. Magic binder can bind the eraser 70 and the cleaning layer 73, so that users can replace the cleaning layer 73 very easily.

To conclude, the present invention provides a dust collecting device for an eraser. It is related to a box, which has an inside box to separate the room of the box to an inner and an outer space. An inhaler component is set in the inside box, and it connects the inner with the outer space. A dust bag, which is ventilated, is placed in the inner space, and it connects a dust guide pipework with the eraser to form a connective structure, so that users can operate the inhaler component at any time to absorb the dust into the dust bag. Thus, the dust is collected instead of floating and spreading in the air, so the environment can stay clean.

The present invention has really the practical applicability and the creativeness, and base never been published to the public, that conforms to the regulations specified in the Patent Law.
