Abstract

The invention relates to a device for covering the interior of a motor vehicle, in particular a window roller blind 1 for a motor vehicle, with an extendable curtain 3 and a pull rod 7 fastened to the displaceable end of the curtain 3 with a multi-part shaft mounted in the interior of the pull rod 7 and having several axially to one another aligned partial shafts 8, 9, each shaft end-side partial shaft 8, 9 having at its outer end a gearwheel 10, 11 which is in engagement with a respective rack 12, 13.

Description

  • The The invention relates to a device for covering the interior of a Motor vehicle, in particular a window blind for a motor vehicle, with a extendable curtain and one at the sliding end of the curtain attached tension rod with a multi-part shaft mounted inside the tension rod with several axially aligned partial shafts, each shaft end-side partial shaft at its outer end with one each Gear rack engaged gear.
  • such Covering devices serve, for example, to cover a loading space in Motor vehicles, for example in so-called combination vehicles or also for darkening or shading windows of a motor vehicle.
  • A device of the type mentioned at the outset is, for example DE 101 34 085 C1 known. This device has a displaceable cover element which can be pulled out by means of a crossbar. A drive motor is arranged in the central area of the crossbar. The crossbar consists of two aligned partial rods, between which the motor is arranged. The drive motor has a planetary gear on both sides with a drive shaft and a gearwheel arranged on the front side of this drive shaft. The respective gearwheel meshes with a corresponding tooth profile. Due to the guidance on both sides by means of the tooth profiles and gear wheels and the propulsion on both sides, the displacement of the cover element is possible more evenly and less prone to malfunction.
  • This known device, however, has limited uses, since it presupposes that both tooth profiles run parallel to each other. There the shapes of automobiles but increasingly more aerodynamic and aesthetic Considerations are subject to increasing numbers in motor vehicles less parallel edges or walls. This applies both in the area of the windows and in the area of cargo holds.
  • The The invention is therefore based on the problem of the possible uses to expand cover devices in the interior of motor vehicles, without sacrificing susceptibility to failure to increase.
  • The Invention solves this problem with a device of the type mentioned in that at least two partial shafts are axially displaceable to one another arranged and all sub-shafts essentially torsionally rigid with each other are connected.
  • The In this way, the invention synchronizes the feed movement of the Tension rod when pulling out and retracting the cover in both - each out Rack and gear existing - guides. The invention puts through torsionally rigid connection also of the mutually displaceable shaft sections or partial waves - sure, that when pulling out and retracting the cover from the pull rod mounted shaft at both ends with the same speed of rotation is rotated. Avoiding different circulation speeds of the gears at the shaft ends prevents the shaft from jamming in the guides.
  • By this synchronized forced operation of the Shaft ends is an orientation of the shaft in a predetermined one Location or direction ensured. The tension rod surrounding the shaft can no longer tilt or jam.
  • at a preferred embodiment the axially displaceable partial shafts are telescopic slidably arranged. This arrangement allows one Small shaft. This is particularly advantageous because since in the area of covers, especially in the area of motor vehicle windows the available standing space regularly tight is measured.
  • at a further preferred embodiment the tension rod or the multi-part shaft is replaced by a in particular driven essentially linearly running, web-guided drive element. The drive element is particularly preferably only on one Side of the tension rod or the multi-part shaft guided. Consequently is advantageously only a drive on only one Side of the cover needed. This not only reduces costs, but also avoids one complicated synchronization of two, on both sides of the tension rod or the multi-part shaft of arranged drives.
  • Further Advantages and preferred embodiments result from the subclaims as well from the using the attached Drawing closer explained Embodiments. In the drawing shows the only one
  • figure a window blind for a motor vehicle according to one embodiment of the present invention.
  • The figure shows a device for covering Cover in the interior of a motor vehicle in the form of a window blind 1 that one from a winding device 2 extendable curtain 3 having. The curtain 3 is either translucent, but reducing the light radiation or opaque, in particular opaque. Inside the winding device 2 there is a winding shaft which is mounted in a bearing arrangement.
  • The window blind is in the area of a side window 4 arranged a motor vehicle. However, the window roller blind can also be attached as a rear window roller blind or roof window roller blind.
  • The winding device 2 is arranged (viewed from the side) substantially vertically aligned with its longitudinal axis. In connection with the concept of vertical arrangement, inclinations of window surfaces in particular should be disregarded. “Vertical” is to be understood in particular in the sense that the longitudinal axis of the winding device is essentially perpendicular to a lower edge 5 and / or an upper edge 6 of the window 4 is aligned.
  • The curtain 3 is by means of a tension rod 7 from the winding device 2 extractable and retractable if necessary, especially with the support of one in the winding device 2 housed spring motor.
  • The tension rod 7 is directly with the curtain 3 connected. The tension rod 7 is hollow. Inside is a multi-part shaft with two or more part waves 8th . 9 stored. The partial waves 8th . 9 are aligned axially to one another and are displaceable relative to one another, in particular telescopically displaceable. Despite the displaceability of the partial waves, all partial waves are 8th . 9 the one in the tension rod 7 arranged shaft rigidly connected to each other. This means that if one of the partial waves, e.g. 8th , is rotated, all other partial waves, e.g. 9 , turn at the same speed. The partial waves 8th . 9 are engaged for this purpose, for example via a tongue and groove connection running in the longitudinal axis of the shaft, in such a way that a rotational movement of a shaft is also forcibly transmitted to the adjacent partial shaft. However, the tongue and groove connections are designed such that the axial displacement of at least two partial shafts 8th . 9 is not affected.
  • The end partial waves 8th . 9 have at their free ends a torsionally rigid with these partial shafts 8th . 9 connected gear 10 . 11 on. Each of these gears 10 . 11 is in engagement with a corresponding rack 12, 13. These racks 12 . 13 are fixed in the area of the lower edge 5 or the upper edge 6 of the window 4 attached to the motor vehicle.
  • The racks 12 . 13 run either parallel or non-parallel to each other. Even if the racks 12 . 13 not parallel to each other, the gears 10, 11 remain in engagement with the racks 12 respectively. 13 , because of suitable lateral guides (not shown) on the gears 10 . 11 and / or the racks 12 . 13 as well as the axial displacement of the partial shafts 8th . 9 the gears slide out sideways 10 . 11 from the racks 12 respectively. 13 is prevented.
  • In the area of the lower edge 5 of the window 4 is a drive element 14 provided that with the partial shaft 8th is in operative connection. In particular, the drive element 14 a bearing, for example a bore, for receiving the end section of the partial shaft 8th on. The drive element 14 is in a train 15 led that along the bottom edge 5 of the window 4 runs and is therefore essentially linear.
  • The drive element 14 itself is powered by a brush cable 16 powered by a cable 17 and an electric motor 18 having. The electric motor 18 stands with the cable 17 engaged in such a way that a rotary movement of the electric motor 18 in a longitudinal movement of the cable 17 is transformed. One end of the cable 17 can in the area of the electric motor 18 be wound up. The opposite end of the cable 17 is with the drive element 14 connected, which is moved back and forth as a result of a rotary movement of the electric motor. To perform a controlled movement of the cable, the cable is housed in a flexible tube (not shown) or hose. This arrangement of the cable 17 The electric motor can be placed in a flexible hose 18 can be arranged at various points, for example behind an inner door panel. This special drive therefore enables the drive to be accommodated very flexibly 16 ,
  • Thanks to the invention is a single drive 16 sufficient to cover the curtain 3 by means of the tension rod 7 Extend and retract evenly and safely. Thanks to the torsionally rigid part shafts 8th . 9 as well as the gearwheels mounted on the outer part of the shaft 10 . 11 namely the tension rod 7 applied the same force at both ends. In this way, the curtain 3 be pulled out evenly over its entire length. This not only ensures that the curtain is pulled out free of tension and thus wrinkles 3 , but also safe and reliable largely trouble-free guidance of the tension rod 7 along the bottom edge 5 and the top edge 6 of the window 4 allows.
  • Thanks to this special design, however, the tension rod can also be guided safely 7 even with a manual pull rod drive 7 possible. The invention can therefore also be used without a brush cable drive 16 be used sensibly.
  • In a special embodiment is in the winding device 2 another curtain 19 housed, which can be wound up on its own winding shaft. The curtain 19 preferably consists of the same material as the curtain 3 , The curtain 19 usually has a different shape than the curtain 3 because it is on a triangular section 20 of the window 4 is adjusted. The curtain faces at its end 19 also a tension rod 21 on by means of another brush cable drive 22 with another electric motor 23 over another cable 24 , which also runs in a hose, in the same way as the tension rod 7 is driven. By means of this second curtain 19 non-rectangular window shapes can be almost completely shaded.
  • The The invention was explained on the basis of the figure on a window blind. The device according to the invention can also be used in the area of cargo area covers become. It is therefore not limited to motor vehicle window blinds.
