Abstract

The armrest module (200) comprises an armrest element (210) that is retracted from a non-usage position (I) to a use position (II-2) by a reversible unit. The armrest element is moved in a stowing away container from the non-usage position such that the armrest element is folded-up in stowing away position. The armrest element is brought into the use position by a driving out mechanism such that the armrest element is folded-up for forming an armrest surface in the stowing away position.

Description

  • The invention relates to an armrest module which can be arranged laterally of a vehicle seat or between vehicle seats of a vehicle, wherein the armrest module comprises at least one Armauflageelement, the means of a training and retraction reversible from a non-use position to form an armrest surface in at least one position of use brought is.
  • The publication DE 101 61 422 A1 describes a vehicle seat, in particular for a rear seat of a motor vehicle, wherein the vehicle seat consists of at least one seat part and at least one backrest and the vehicle seat is associated with at least one adjustable in position armrest. The at least one armrest is integrated in its non-use position in the seat part of the vehicle seat. It is brought by means of an actuating device, in particular with the aid of scissor lift elements, via a vertical movement in a use position in which the support surface of the armrest rises above the seat surface of the seat part.
  • A similar solution with scissor joints for the vertical displacement of an armrest of a center console is from the document DE 196 11 892 C1 known, wherein at this center console at the same time a transverse displacement of the armrest takes place. The center console includes a storage compartment with a lid.
  • The publication DE 197 07 477 A1 discloses a rear seat with a pivotable and down pivotable center armrest. The center armrest comprises a storage space and a holder for a beverage container.
  • Another armrest with a storage compartment, which can be brought via a lever mechanism by a vertical movement or a vertical movement with transverse displacement of a lowered use position in a raised use position, is in the WO 2004/008916 A1 described.
  • To accommodate objects in the armrest area also a storage container system has become known. The storage container has an adapter for attaching the storage container to an armrest. The storage container has in its interior a so-called cup holder, ie a beverage can holder, and further holding devices on the inside of the lid of the storage container.
  • It is clear that from the prior art, a plurality of center consoles or armrests are known, which are mostly substantially vertically displaceable or pivotable. In some cases, storage spaces or holding devices for the under and / or attachment of objects are also formed.
  • In practice, there is always the problem that usually only small space is available for the arrangement of the center console or armrests. Many of the known solutions are therefore not implemented in practice, since the necessary space is not available.
  • The invention is an object of the invention to provide an armrest that is comfortable, that is, an armrest allows, and allows the attachment or recording of objects and the small space required.
  • The starting point of the invention is an armrest module, which is arranged laterally of a vehicle seat or between vehicle seats of a vehicle, wherein the armrest module comprises at least one Armauflageelement, by means of an extension and retraction reversible from a non-use position to form an armrest surface in at least one use position can be brought.
  • According to the invention it is provided that the Armauflageelement is formed in two parts and is arranged in non-use position in a stowage container in a folded space-saving stowage, from which the Armauflageelement by means of the extension mechanism can be brought into at least one use position, in which the Armauflageelement in the still folded stowage position or in an unfolded comfort position in each case forms the armrest surface. The particular advantage is that a collapsed Armauflageelement in the stowage can be arranged in a particularly space-saving. Nevertheless, a large contact surface can be formed, since the Armauflageelement of the stowage in the comfort position can be brought, which forms a large and thus particularly comfortable support surface for the user after unfolding or unfolding of Armauflageelementes.
  • In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the Armauflageelement is arranged in a Verstaubehälter, which is designed as a cuboid housing. The edges of the cuboid housing, which lie in the horizontal direction transversely to the longitudinal axis of the housing, very short, preferably in the range of 40 mm to 100 mm formed. This embodiment has the advantage that the stowage container can be arranged in a narrow gap which is formed in a vertical plane between two vehicle seats or between a vehicle seat and a body. The stowage container is not longer than the seat depth of a seat part and not higher than the height of a seat part relative to a body. Advantageously, the stowage container is thus virtually invisible between two vehicle seats can be arranged.
  • In an advantageous embodiment of the invention, everything necessary to form an armrest surface is arranged in the stowage container. The armrest module essentially comprises an armrest element and an extension and retraction mechanism, by means of which the armrest element can be displaced vertically in at least one use position. The armrest module is thus relatively simple and comfortable at the same time, as will be explained in more detail below.
  • In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the Verstaubehälter a cover which is closed in the non-use position in a closed position and open in the use position in an open position, the lid from the closed position to the open position about a first longitudinal axis of the storage container axis up and closed is. Advantageously, therefore, the stowage container is closed in the non-use position and thus protected against contamination. The hinged around a folding axis cover also provides a robust solution to release the armrest element for adjustment in the at least one use position can.
  • As a release and retraction mechanism is provided a mechanism comprising telescopic support struts. By means of these telescoping support struts, the armrest element can be displaced upwards or downwards in a vertical manner in the vertical direction, a first use position and a second use position being described in the exemplary embodiment, in which the armrest element can be fixed. It should be noted that more than two use positions described in the embodiment can be realized.
  • The telescoping allows the taking of a variety of positions beyond the two height positions described in the embodiment. Telescopic support struts, however, are of particular advantage since they require only little space and, in particular in the horizontal direction, build very narrow transversely to the longitudinal direction. In this respect, the support struts fit into the narrow storage container whose horizontal edges lying transversely to the longitudinal axis, as already described, are particularly short. The telescopic support struts offer the technical possibility to realize a lifting height without large space requirement.
  • The Armauflageelement is in two parts and comprises a first Armauflageteil and a second Armauflageteil. This bipartite is of particular advantage, since only by the effect arises that the Armauflageelement builds narrow in the stowage and can be arranged to save space in the stowage container in non-use position. On the other hand, there is the effect that a large armrest surface can be formed by unfolding or unfolding.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the Armauflageteile reversible from the stowage position in the comfort position can be brought. By pivoting the Armauflageteile to a lying in the longitudinal direction of the Armauflageelementes second axis (pivot axis) is advantageously a conversion of Armauflageelementes from the stowed in the comfort position and vice versa possible.
  • In a further preferred embodiment of the invention, for example, it is provided that the two Armauflageteile the Armauflageelementes are arranged in the stowage position in the first or second use position, so that the stowage above arranged end faces of the two Armauflageteile form a narrow support surface for a user. In this case, only a narrow support surface is thus produced, but can be dispensed with in an advantageous manner on the unfolding or unfolding of the Armauflageelementes in the comfort position. The armrest module thus has a high variability.
  • In yet another preferred embodiment of the invention, it is also provided, for example, that the two Armauflageteile the Armauflageelementes are arranged in the first or second use position in the comfort position, so that in the comfort position in a horizontal plane above surfaces of the two Armauflageteile together form wide contact surface for the user. Advantageously, thus creating a wide support surface for the user by simply unfolding or unfolding of the narrow support surface, the narrow support surface or the wide support surface can be selectively generated in different height positions, depending on the height of the user telescoping support struts within the Extension mechanism fixed.
  • Further, it is preferred that the armrest element in its comfort position has a cup holder, the comfort of two in the two Armauflageteilen the Armauflageelementes provided cutouts is formed. Preferably, two semicircular cutouts are provided, so that automatically forms a circular cupholder in comfort position of the support element, so to speak.
  • The invention further proposes in a preferred embodiment of the invention that the cup holder is provided with arranged below the two Armauflageteile securing elements. These securing elements are elastic bands, in particular rubber bands, which secure an object in the cup holder against accidental slipping through the cup holder. The formation of the security elements as elastic bands has the significant advantage that it fulfills the security function and at the same time finds place in the stowage position of the Armauflageelementes between the Armauflageteilen. The necessary space of the located in Verstaulage between Armauflageteilen security elements is thus only marginally increased.
  • Further preferred embodiments of the invention will become apparent from the remaining, mentioned in the dependent claims characteristics.
  • The invention will be explained in more detail in embodiments with reference to the accompanying drawings. Show it:

  • A possible embodiment of the invention will be explained below in an embodiment. For the purposes of the description, the direction lying in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle shall be denoted by "x". "Y" denotes the direction in the horizontal of the vehicle transverse to the x-direction, and "z" denotes the direction in the vertical of the vehicle transverse to the x-direction. This designation of the spatial directions in Cartesian coordinates corresponds to the coordinate system commonly used in the automotive industry. Within all figures, the same reference numerals for the same components are used below, which may not be explained again in each figure again all components already presented by reference numerals.
  • 1A shows a rear seat system 100 , comprising two vehicle seats 110A . 110B with one between the vehicle seats 110A . 110B arranged armrest element 210 inside an armrest module 200 in non-use position I in a perspective view. The vehicle seats 110A . 110B each have a backrest 114A . 114B and a seat part 112A . 112B on.
  • 1B shows the rear seat system 100 according to 1A with an armrest element 210 of the armrest module 200 in a second position II-2 also in a perspective view.
  • The armrest module 200 is in the embodiment between the vehicle seats 110A . 110B arranged. It is understood that the armrest module according to the invention 200 also on the side of a vehicle seat 110A . 110B between body and vehicle seat 110A . 110B can be arranged. In addition, the armrest module according to the invention 200 not only for rear seats, for example, in the second or third row of seats, provided, but can also be arranged on individual seats, between two individual seats or between a single seat and the side body.
  • In the 1A and 1B It also shows that between the vehicle seats 110A . 110B a gap S is provided with a small width.
  • In addition, in the 1A and 1B shown that the armrest module 200 is arranged to sit on the bottom-side body of a vehicle.
  • The detailed structure of the armrest module 200 is explained in more detail in the following figures.
  • The 2A shows a box-like storage container 220 of the armrest module 200 in the non-use position I in a perspective view.
  • The stowage container has a housing 221 on, which is designed as a cuboid.
  • The horizontally across the longitudinal direction in the y direction extending equal long edges of the cuboid have a very short length, which is substantially the width of the gap S between the vehicle seats 110A . 110B corresponds. The storage container 220 is thus formed very narrow in an advantageous manner.
  • The longitudinally extending in the x-direction equal long edges of the cuboid have a length substantially the depth of the seat parts 112A . 112B equivalent.
  • The vertically long edges of the cuboid extending transversely to the longitudinal direction in the z-direction have a length which is smaller by a first amount z1 than the distance between the bottom-side body and the seat surfaces of the seat parts lying in the x / y plane 112A . 112B ,
  • In non-use position I, the storage container protrudes 220 thus not over the seats of the seat parts 112A . 112B out. The upper rectangular area of the storage container 220 Rather, it lies around the first amount z1 below the x / y plane of the seat surface of the seat parts 112A . 112B in a deeper x / y plane. The storage container 220 is in the non-use position I according to 1A . 2A closed, that is, a lid 221A is in a closed position. The armrest element 210 is in non-use position I inside the storage container 220 in his stowage position.
  • The 2 B shows the armrest module 200 in a first use position II-1 in a perspective view. In this in 2 B shown position is the armrest element 210 also in the storage container 220 arranged in its stowage position.
  • It will be visible that the upper rectangular area of the housing 221 of the storage container 220 as a pivotable lid 221A serves. In the first use position II-1 is the lid 221A open (open position) and is essentially vertical in z-direction up, leaving the lid 221A lying in an x / z plane, with the top of the lid 221A not over the seats of the seat parts 112A . 112B protrudes.
  • On the front surface of the housing 221 of the storage container 220 in an easy to use position is an actuator, in the manner of an actuating button 225 educated.
  • By a first actuation of the actuating button 225 the lid opens 221A automatically and works around a laterally first x1-axis (folding axis) in its open position. By the first actuation of the actuating button 225 Furthermore, an extension mechanism is activated, so that the armrest element 210 in his first use position II-1 arrived.
  • As an extension mechanism telescopic support struts are in the embodiment 231 . 232 educated.
  • The support struts are displaceable in the vertical direction relative to each other and in predetermined height positions, in which the support struts have shifted relative to each reversibly locked, the support struts are supported by spring elements acting transversely to the vertical longitudinal orientation of the support struts against each other, whereby the support struts rattle-free connected to each other.
  • There are two main struts 231 arranged at the first actuation of the actuating knob 225 opposite non-visible vertically projecting in the z-direction bottom side base support struts are raised by a mechanism by a second amount z2, wherein the second amount z2, for example, approximately the height of extending in the z-direction edges of the cuboid of the housing 221 equivalent.
  • At the main support struts 231 are opposite the main support struts 231 telescopic side support struts 232 arranged. In the first use position II-1 are the secondary support struts 232 not yet deployed.
  • At the secondary support struts 232 is the armrest element 210 each arranged pivotably.
  • At the front side support strut 232 is an unlocking element 235 , in the manner of a release button arranged.
  • In the first use position II-1 is the armrest element 210 already partly extended by the second amount z2 and can be used as an armrest.
  • However, in the first use position II-1 serves only a narrow area as an armrest, since the armrest element 210 not yet unfolded or unfolded.
  • The armrest element 210 is namely formed in two parts, the two Armauflageteile 210-1 . 210-2 in the first use position II-1, for example, are arranged so that the bearing surfaces formed in the second use position II-2 are still arranged as side surfaces.
  • The trained in the first use position II-1 end faces of the two Armauflageteile 210-1 . 210-2 are relatively narrow and equal to twice the thickness of the armrest element 210 , The end faces of the two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 form in the first position of use II-1, in which the armrest element 210 still in storage position, a narrow support surface.
  • It is understood that the width of the end faces of the two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 in the first use position II-1 seen in the y-direction, the length of the running in the y-direction edges of the housing 221 does not exceed, since the armrest element 210 in the non-use position I in the housing 221 is arranged in the folded or folded position.
  • In the first position of use II-1 according to 2 B is already visible that the armrest element 210 a holding element 250 which, in the first use position II-1 by two upwardly open semi-circular cutouts in the two parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 manifests.
  • As mentioned, is on the front side support strut 232 a release button 235 arranged. By pressing the release button 235 becomes the armrest element 210 unfolded by a Auffaltmechanismus or unfolded by a folding mechanism.
  • The two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 thereby pivot about a second axis x2 (pivot axis) upwards, so that the side surfaces of the first use position II-1 to Armauflageflächen lying in a horizontal x / y plane.
  • The in the first use position II-1 serving as bearing surfaces end faces are now in the second use position II-2 now shock to shock and automatically form a stop for the two Armauflageteile 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 in its second use position II-2.
  • The 2C shows the armrest module 200 in its second position II-2 also in a perspective view.
  • As just described, the armrest element is 210 already unfolded or unfolded in the second use position II-2.
  • It is clear that the unfolding or unfolding either in the first use position II-1 or in the second use position II-2 by pressing the release button 235 is possible.
  • The second use position II-2 is repeated by - a second - actuation of the operating knob 225 causes.
  • By this second operation, the secondary support struts 232 in the vertical direction relative to the main support struts 231 extended, leaving the armrest element 210 in the second use position II-2 passes.
  • In this second use position II-2 is the armrest element 210 Viewed higher in the z-direction than in the first use position II-1.
  • It also becomes clear that the extension of the armrest element 210 from the first use position II-1 in the second use position II-2 with folded or not yet unfolded Armauflageteilen 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 or with unfolded or unfolded armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 is possible.
  • The 2C further shows that the unfolding or unfolding of the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 from the two semicircular cutouts a circular holding element 250 formed.
  • This circular retaining element 250 forms a cup holder, especially for bottles and cans or cups, which is often referred to collectively as Cupholder.
  • The armrest element 210 thus forms in the unfolded or unfolded comfort position - either in the first or second use position II-1, II-2 - a Cupholder.
  • This Cupholder is thus formed in two parts and in the armrest element 210 integrated.
  • In the unfolded or unfolded comfort position of the armrest element 210 in the first or second use position II-1, II-2 of the armrest element 210 unites the armrest element 210 the functions holding an object in the holding element 250 and the support of a body part, in particular an arm, in or on the surface of the armrest element formed by the unfolding or unfolding 210 ,
  • The 2D shows the armrest module 200 with the same reference numerals in the second use position II-2 in a side view.
  • It will be seen that below the circular cupholders securing elements 260 are attached, which ensure that objects that are used in the Cupholder, not accidentally fall through the circular opening of the Cupholders down in the z-direction. A security element 260 is the one armrest part 210-1 and a second securing element 260 is the other part 210-2 of the armrest element 210 assigned or at the respective Armauflageteil 210-1 . 210-2 fixed arranged.
  • It is provided in a preferred embodiment of the invention that the security elements 260 preferably elastic bands, in particular rubber bands, are.
  • Elastic securing elements have the advantage that they are folded or folded storage position of the two Armauflageteile 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 according to the 2A or 2 B easy and space-saving between the two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 lay.
  • The user thus has the elastic securing elements 260 do not operate separately. In the folded or folded storage position according to 2A and 2 B are the elastic securing elements 260 between the surfaces of the two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 , which lie opposite the side surfaces. These surfaces opposite the side surfaces form the two partial surfaces of the underside of the two armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 the unfolded or unfolded armrest element 210 according to 2C ,
  • The 2E and 2E complete with the same reference numerals the armrest element 210 in the second use position II-2 in a plan view and in a slightly perspective side view.
  • The Auffaltmechanismus or the unfolding mechanism of the armrest element 210 For example, by supporting spring elements, it ensures that the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 automatically in a horizontal position according to 2C can be brought into the x / y plane.
  • In the horizontal comfort position of the armrest element 210 is provided within the Auffaltmechanismus or the folding mechanism, a latching mechanism which the Armauflageteile 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 keeps and secures in the horizontal comfort position.
  • By applying a vertical downward force on the outer edges of the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 For example, the latching mechanism may fold or fold the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 to overcome the second axis x2 (pivot axis), after which the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 against the force of the spring elements in their Verstaulage according to 2 B can be brought.
  • In this Verstaulage rest the armrest parts 210-1 . 210-2 of the armrest element 210 again accordingly, so that the armrest element 210 via the telescopic support struts 231 . 232 by another in the vertical direction z-direction downward force applied in the Verstaubehälter 220 can be brought.
  • The mentioned extension mechanism is designed such that it simultaneously serves to be used as a retraction mechanism. It is ensured that the armrest element 210 can either be returned to the non-use position I either from the first use position II-1 or from the second use position II-2. The retraction mechanism provides that a retraction of the armrest element 210 from the first use position II-1 in the stowage container 220 only possible if the armrest element 210 folded into his storage position or has been folded.
  • A retraction of the second use position II-2 in the first use position II-1 is possible, regardless of whether the armrest element 210 already folded into his storage position or has been folded or not.
  • The armrest module 200 is advantageously retrofittable to existing vehicle seats, wherein the vehicle seats, as is clear from the description, advantageously no special precautions must be present. The armrest module 200 only needs the small gap S side of a vehicle seat and is advantageously mounted easily on the bottom side body.
  • Advantageously, it is also proposed that in the housing 221 of the armrest module 200 further functional elements can be integrated.
  • For example, on the top of the lid 221A a reading lamp can be integrated.
  • A reading lamp or an ashtray, for example, in the housing 221 of the armrest module 200 be arranged integrated.
  • For example, a reading lamp automatically turns off when the lid opens 221A one and closing lid 221A out again.
