Die Erfindung betrifft eine Steckdose mit Beleuchtung nach dem Oberbegriff des Anspruchs 1. The invention relates to a socket with lighting according to the preamble of claim 1.

In der Ausgestaltung als Zigarettenanzünder in Kraftfahrzeugen sind derartige Steckdosen bekannt. In the embodiment as a cigarette lighter in vehicles such outlets are known. Üblicherweise ist ein ringförmiger Lichtleiter um die Steckdose angeordnet. Typically, an annular light guide is arranged around the outlet. Eine dahinter angeordnete Glühbirne sorgt für dessen Ausleuchtung. A behind arranged bulb ensures its illumination. Die bekannten Steckdosen weisen den Nachteil auf, daß die Beleuchtung entweder zusammen mit dem Stand- oder Fahrtlicht oder mit dem Betriebsschalter des Fahrzeugs dauerhaft eingeschaltet wird. The known sockets have the disadvantage that the lighting is switched on permanently either together with the standing or driving light or with the operation switch of the vehicle. Daher eignen sie sich ausschließlich für den Betrieb in Kraftfahrzeugen. Therefore, they are only suitable for use in motor vehicles. Bei den üblichen Schutzkontaktsteckdosen für Wechselspannungsnetze wird durch die ständige Beleuchtung zuviel Energie verbraucht. In the conventional electrical outlets for AC systems too much energy is consumed by the constant lighting.

From DE 36 43 702 C1, a box with a floor arranged in the outlet illumination device is known. Ein Fenster in der Abdeckplatte der Steckdose wird vom Licht einer Glimmlampe ständig ausgeleuchtet. A window in the cover of the socket is constantly illuminated by the light of a glow lamp.

Aus der US 4,510,488 ist ein Infrarot-Detektor bekannt, der bezüglich seines Aussehens an eine elektrische Wandsteckdose, wie sie in den USA üblich ist, angepaßt ist. From US 4,510,488 an infrared detector is known, which is regarding its appearance to an electrical wall outlet, as is customary in the US, adjusted. Die bekannte Detektoreinrichtung weist eine Lampe auf, die durch einen Bewegungsmelder eingeschaltet werden kann und dient dazu, das Ansprechen des Bewegungsmelders optisch zu signalisieren. The known detector means comprises a lamp, which can be activated by a motion detector and is used to signal the response of the motion detector optically.

Aufgabe der Erfindung ist es daher eine beleuchtete Steckdose, insbesondere eine beleuchtete Schutzkontaktsteckdose anzugeben, bei der die Energie, die für die Beleuchtung aufgewendet wird, deutlich reduziert ist. The object of the invention is therefore an illuminated wall socket, in particular to provide an illuminated safety socket, wherein the energy expended for the lighting, is significantly reduced.

Diese Aufgabe wird durch eine Steckdose mit den Merkmalen des Anspruchs 1 gelöst. This object is achieved by a socket having the features of claim 1. Die vorteilhafte Ausgestaltung der Erfindung erfolgt gemäß den Merkmalen der abhängigen Ansprüche. The advantageous embodiment of the invention takes place according to the features of the dependent claims.

In der Steckdose ist ein Bewegungsmelder angeordnet, der die Beleuchtung aktiviert, wenn er Bewegungen im Umfeld der Steckdose registriert. In the socket, a motion sensor is provided which activates the lights when it detects movement in the area of ​​the socket. Die Steckdose kann insbesondere als Schutzkontaktsteckdose für das 220 Volt Netz oder auch als Zigarettenanzünder/Steckdosen Kombination in Kraftfahrzeugen ausgebildet sein. The socket can be formed as a safety socket for the 220 volt mains or as a cigarette lighter / sockets combination in motor vehicles in particular. In Kombination mit dem Bewegungsmelder wird die Beleuchtung nur dann aktiviert, wenn sie tatsächlich benötigt wird. In combination with the motion detector lighting is activated only when it is actually needed. Dadurch kann Energie gespart werden. This energy can be saved.

Wird die Beleuchtungseinrichtung von einer oder mehreren Leuchtdioden gebildet, die mit einem Vorwiderstand direkt aus der Spannungsversorgung der Steckdose betrieben werden können, so wird gegenüber Glühlampen eine weitere Energieeinsparung erreicht. If the illumination device of one or more light emitting diodes formed which can be operated with a bias resistor directly from the power supply to the socket, a further power saving is achieved compared to incandescent lamps.

Die Leuchtdioden der Beleuchtungseinrichtung sind in einer bevorzugten Ausführung in den beiden Stöpselkontaktlöchern einer Schutzkontakt Steckdose angeordnet. The light emitting diodes of the illumination device are arranged socket in a preferred embodiment in the two plug contact holes of a safety contact. Das erleichtert das Einstecken eines Steckers bei einer finsteren Umgebung enorm. This facilitates the insertion of a plug in a dark environment tremendously.

In einer weiteren Ausführung leuchten die Leuchtdioden der Beleuchtungseinrichtung einen ringförmig um die Steckdose verlaufenden Lichtleiter aus. In another embodiment, the light emitting diodes of the illumination device light from an annularly extending around the outlet light guide. Das kann sowohl ausschließlich als auch zusätzlich zu der Ausleuchtung der Stöpselkontaktlöcher der Schutzkontakt Steckdose erfolgen. This can be done both exclusively and in addition to the illumination of the plug contact holes of the electrical outlet.

Bei einer weiteren Ausführungsform ist ein Dämmerungsschalter vorgesehen ist, der die Beleuchtung der Steckdose erst bei unzureichenden Lichtverhältnissen aktiviert. In another embodiment, a light-sensitive switch is provided, which activates the illumination of the socket only in low light conditions. Damit wird die Beleuchtung erst dann eingeschalten, wenn es dunkel bzw. dämmerig ist. So that the lighting is only turned on when it is dark or dim. In einer vorteilhaften Ausgestaltung wirkt der Dämmerungsschalter auf den Bewegungsmelder ein und aktiviert dienen erst bei unzureichenden Lichtverhältnissen. In an advantageous embodiment of dimmer switch acts on the motion and activates serve only in low light conditions. So braucht dem Bewegungsmelder keine Energie zugeführt werden, wenn die Beleuchtung aufgrund ausreichender Lichtverhältnisse ohnehin nicht aktiviert würde. So the motion no energy needs to be supplied when the lighting would anyway not activated due to sufficient light.

Im folgenden ist ein bevorzugtes Ausführungsbeispiel der Steckdose mit Beleuchtung gemäß der Erfindung mit Bezug auf die Figur erläutert. In the following a preferred embodiment of the socket with lighting according to the invention with reference to the Figure is explained.

Fig. 1 zeigt ein Ausführungsbeispiel einer Steckdose mit Beleuchtung und Bewegungsmelder zur Ansteuerung der Beleuchtung. Fig. 1 shows an embodiment of a socket with lighting and motion detector for controlling the illumination.

In der Figur ist eine Schutzkontakt-Steckdose 1 für das 220 Volt Wechselspannungsnetz dargestellt. In the figure, a power outlet 1 is shown for the 220 volt alternating voltage mains. Sie weist zu ihrer Beleuchtung zwei in den beiden Stöpselkontaktlöchern 2 angeordnete Leuchtdioden 3 auf. It has to its lighting two in the two plugs contact holes 2 arranged LEDs third Die Leuchtdioden werden über einen Vorwiderstand direkt aus der in der Steckdose anliegenden Spannung betrieben. The LEDs are operated via a series resistor directly from the applied voltage in the socket. Die Ansteuerung der Leuchtdioden 3 erfolgt durch einen ebenfalls in der Steckdose angeordneten Bewegungsmelder 4 , der das nahe Umfeld der Steckdose erfaßt. The control of the light emitting diodes 3 is carried out by a likewise arranged in the socket motion detector 4, which detects the close vicinity of the outlet. Wird durch den Bewegungsmelder 4 eine Bewegung registriert, so werden die Leuchtdioden 3 mit Spannung versorgt und damit die Steckdose 1 beleuchtet.
