Abstract

The roof has solar cells (10) positioned between an internal plastics carrier (4) and outer glass layer (5). The carrier is trough-shaped with a circumferential outwardly facing edge (8) enclosing a central chamber. This contains the solar cells and is closed off by the glass layer. The carrier is of injection-moulded plastics. The hollow space between the glass layer and the solar cells is filled with a cast pref. transparent adhesive and/or a pref. transparent adhesive foil layer. The glass is positioned inside the chamber within the trough, and engages on the edge.

Description

The invention relates to a solar cover for vehicle sliding, lifting, sliding lifting, Spoiler roofs and the like with solar cells between an internal support made of plastic and an outer glass cover layer are arranged.

Such a solar cover is, for example, in DE 196 30 813 A1 described. The solar cells in this solar cell roof are used for Power supply of electrochromic elements which are arranged in the solar cover, whose outer glass layer is formed as a toughened safety glass, and internal carrier is made of plastic. This composite solar cover requires however, a separate manufacturing step for molding a reinforcing edge as well as for attaching or injecting connecting elements in further operations. In addition, this solar cover is due to the use of a Single-pane safety glass for the glass cover layer is still relatively heavy.

From DE-GM 85 32 154 it is known to use solar cells of a solar cell panel Use in a motor vehicle with a flexible, largely unbreakable transparent cover made of chemically hardened thin glass to cover with the Solar cells is glued. This glass cover preferably has a thickness of less than two millimeters. The thin glass cover is said to be compared to the use of Plastic a scratch-resistant outer surface for the solar cell composite are provided. A carrier for the solar cell network is not described in detail.

From EP-0 472 788 B1 a synthetic resin window for motor vehicles is known which consists of a plate made of transparent or semi-transparent synthetic resin and one Frame is enclosed, which is made in one piece by an injection molding process is made of the same resin as the panel and is intended to give it the necessary rigidity.  

From DE-35 38 986 C2 a solar generator is known, which as a vaulted composite sandwiched by a carrier from a glass pane and an external glass pane is made of white glass.

From DE-36 40 168 C2 a vehicle sunroof is known, the cover of which is in one piece is formed with a lid frame made of plastic.

Another vehicle sunroof with a plastic cover is from the DE-43 34 012 C1 known. A web is in one piece on the underside of the plastic cover formed by injection molding according to the gas pressure process.

From DE-44 06 097 A1 a transparent plastic disc is known, which for Increase in scratch resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and Environmental resistance on one or both sides with a thin glass film with a Thickness of about 30 to 500 microns is occupied.

The invention has for its object a solar cover in the preamble of To create claim 1 type mentioned in the casting process together with a Edge structure can be easily produced with a low overall weight.

This object is achieved by the features of claim 1. Advantageous developments of the invention are specified in the subclaims.

Accordingly, the inner flat plastic carrier of the solar cover is not as with State of the art formed as a flat or curved layer of a lid assembly, but in the form of a tub, in which the solar cells are inserted, and their surrounding Edge either a surrounding frame or a support for the glass top layer forms.

The trough-shaped carrier designed according to the invention can be easily molded as a plastic part produce, on which the solar cells are arranged, whereupon the space over the Solar cells are poured out with a primarily transparent adhesive or through a front filled with transparent film and finally applied the glass top layer and is connected to the adhesive or the film layer.  

Due to the trough shape of the solar cover carrier, there is no need to attach it separately a cover-enclosing frame in a further process step, since the edge of the tub-shaped carrier preferably takes over the function of this frame. Alternatively For this purpose, the edge limitation function for the solar cover is implemented by a special Sealing arrangement achieved, which is supported by a reinforcing profile, which on protrudes around the edge of the tub support.

This is preferably formed in one piece with the peripheral edge of the plastic carrier According to a preferred variant, the reinforcement profile has an outward or upward direction open insert profile provided for a lid edge seal, which is formed so that it Completely encloses the solar cover on the edge. Alternatively, a lid edge seal can be a push-on edge of the reinforcing profile projecting sideways.

Advantageously, the reinforcement profile is formed containing a hollow chamber around which To increase the stability of the edge of the solar cover.

In the widened edge of the tub-shaped to a reinforcement profile Plastic carrier, other functional elements can also be integrated, such as preferably screens from the outside and / or inside holding means for electrical contacts and the like and, if appropriate, a gutter for rainwater drainage.

Due to the profile design of the solar cover carrier according to the invention, the latter is alone without the glass lid layer being able to perform the load-bearing function of the solar lid take over, so that the glass cover layer can be formed as thin as desired essentially only the scratch resistance of the mainly plastic To ensure solar covers. This also ensures that the invention formed solar cover has a low weight compared to conventional composite lids which the glass portion of the solar cover must be relatively large for the strength of the cover.

While the plastic carrier according to the invention is preferably formed in one piece, it can basically also be designed in several parts.

The plastic mass of the trough-shaped carrier designed according to the invention can be of this type colored that the sunlight is prevented, undamped by the To pass through solar cell spaces. This reduction in transmission can for example, by embedding a coated film either in the  trough-shaped support or between the solar cells and the support base will.

The invention is explained in more detail below using the drawing as an example; it demonstrate:

Fig. 1 shows a first embodiment of the solar cover in its closed position in combination with a vehicle roof in cross section, and

Fig. 2 is a cutaway partial view of a second embodiment of the solar cover.

In Fig. 1, the roof skin of a vehicle is designated 1 . The roof skin 1 is folded inwards in the area of a roof opening, which can be closed by the solar cover, and encompasses a reinforcing frame 2 in this area. The solar cover is generally designated 3 and consists of a carrier 4 made of plastic, a glass cover layer 5 and a solar package 6 arranged between this glass cover layer 5 and the carrier 4 . The glass cover layer 5 is substantially thinner than the plastic carrier 4 , which is trough-shaped and has a bottom 7 and a peripheral edge 8 formed integrally therewith, which has a U-shape in cross section. In the U-shaped edge 8 , a seal 9 in the form of a hollow chamber seal is used, which serves as a support for the glass cover layer 5 and to compensate for expansion between the different materials of the glass cover layer 5 and the carrier 4 . The solar package 6 has solar cells 10 , of which only a single solar cell 10 arranged at the edge is shown in FIG. 1, and a transparent adhesive in which the solar cells 10 are embedded. The adhesive 11 fills the entire cavity around the solar cells 10 , which is defined by the carrier 4 and the glass cover layer 5 , including the solar cells 10 .

The carrier 4 for the solar cover 3 is also preferably - as shown in the exemplary embodiment - formed in one piece with a reinforcing profile 12 which adjoins the edge 8 of the carrier and projects from the inside of the vehicle or downwards from it. The reinforcement profile 12 is generally U-shaped or channel-shaped, this channel, among other things, taking over the function of a water channel for the cover 3 . U-shaped reinforcing profile 12 is formed a support edge 13 laterally to the above, which has L-shape in cross section and projecting upward and with its free leg to the outside.

The U-shaped or channel-shaped part of the reinforcement profile 12 serves as a plug-in profile for a lid edge seal 16 which has a barbed anchoring part 16 D which can be non-positively inserted into the channel section of the reinforcement profile 12 . A sealing part for the solar cover 3 connects to the anchoring part 16 D in the upward direction. This includes a shorter leg 16 A, which follows the contour of the reinforcing profile 12 in the transition region to the edge 8 of the carrier 4 and extends to the underside of the glass cover layer 5 , which protrudes laterally beyond the circumferential seal 9 . The leg 16 A lies against the underside of the glass cover layer 5 . A parallel to the leg 16 A further leg 16 B of the sealing part runs essentially parallel to the leg 16 A, but is longer than this and lies on the side edge of the glass cover layer 5 , against which edge it is pressed by the inwardly folded roof skin 1 when the solar cover 3 is in the closed position shown in FIG. 1.

The rim of the lid gasket 16 also comprises a hollow part 16 C, which is laterally outside of the seal legs 16 A and 16 B and a deployable seal lip 16 includes E, which presses with closed Solar cover 3 from below against the folded roof 1, wherein the hollow chamber 18 in this Position is slightly depressed to ensure the sealing contact with the edge of the roof skin 1 . Otherwise, the hollow chamber part 16 C rests on the laterally projecting supporting edge 13 of the reinforcing profile 12 and is delimited from the outside by its vertical web in the lower part.

FIG. 2 shows a second embodiment of a solar cover, which is designated overall by reference number 19 . Insofar as the solar cover 19 from FIG. 2 matches the solar cover 3 from FIG. 1, identical reference numerals are used which are supplemented by an apostrophe.

Accordingly, the solar cover 19 also has a trough-shaped support 4 'with an essentially flat bottom 7 ' and a peripheral edge 8 'and a glass cover layer 5 '. Solar cells 10 'are arranged between the glass cover layer 5 ' and the bottom 7 '. On the inside of the circumferential edge 8 ', projections 20 are formed directly on the bottom 7 ' and are spaced apart from one another towards the inside of the tub, which are intended as spacers for the solar cells 10 'and as supports for the glass cover layer 5 '. The cavity remaining between the glass cover layer 5 'and the bottom 7 ' around the solar cells 10 'is poured out with a transparent adhesive and / or filled with a transparent adhesive film layer, as in the first embodiment of FIG. 1.

An essential difference between the second embodiment of FIG. 2 and the first embodiment of FIG. 1 relates to the arrangement of the glass cover layer 5 'within the trough-shaped carrier 4 '. The glass cover layer 5 rests on the protrusions 20 and approximately adjoins the inside of the edge 8 'of the carrier 4 '.

Another significant difference between the two embodiments consists in the design of the reinforcement profile 12 , which, as shown in FIG. 2, comprises a hollow chamber 23 with an approximately square cross section immediately below the peripheral edge 8 ', to which a vertical wall section 24 adjoins upwards with the peripheral edge 8 'of the carrier 4 ' defines an upwardly open channel, which can serve as a water channel on the one hand and on the other forms a plug-in receptacle for a seal 26 . A slip-on edge 25 for the seal 26 extends horizontally laterally from the vertical wall section 24 . The seal 26 has an anchoring part 26 D with barbs which is inserted into the groove defined by the vertical wall section 24 and the peripheral edge 8 'of the carrier. In the lateral direction to the outside, the seal 26 has two hollow chambers 26 A and 26 B, the walls of which lie below the contour of the push-on edge 25 . Formed laterally on the hollow chamber 26 A, a sealing lip 26 E extends in the upward direction. With a horizontal tab 26 F, which adjoins the upper wall of the hollow chamber 26 B as an extension, the seal 26 engages over the top of the peripheral edge 8 'of the trough-shaped Carrier 4 'and the outer edge of the glass cover layer 5 '.

A variant of the one-piece reinforcement profile 12 'which is integrally connected to the carrier 4 ' can be seen from the right part of FIG. 2. Accordingly, a screen 30 is formed in the extension of the vertical wall of the hollow chamber 23 below the base 7 'and a bracket 31 protrudes from the inside of the screen and is formed in one piece with it. The screen 30 and the bracket 31 represent two examples of integrated functional elements of the solar cover according to the invention, which are usually designed as separate elements in the prior art and must be attached to the solar cover afterwards.

Both embodiments of the present invention formed Solar cover according to Fig. 1 and 2 are characterized therefore by a trough-shaped plastic substrate as a support member for the solar cells, which is covered by a scratch-resistant glass top layer, whereby the respective carrier by injection molding formed together with the reinforcing profile and the other functional elements integrally is. The support attains particular stability in particular through the reinforcing profile running around the edge, which is also functionally designed as a support for a seal 16 or 26 with respect to the roof skin 1 of a vehicle and possibly for a seal 9 with respect to the glass cover layer 5 . Due to the additional stability conferred by the reinforcement profile and the use of plastic, the carrier can be made relatively light overall. Since the stability of the solar cover is essentially determined by the support, the glass cover layer can be made extremely thin, so that it essentially only fulfills the function of a scratch-resistant protective cover for the solar cells.

While as a plastic for the trough-shaped support of the Solar cover is basically a transparent material, is a at least partially reduced transmission material preferred, so that sunlight does not shine on the occupants undamped through the spaces between the solar cells. If necessary, the transmission can also be reduced by means of a coated film be achieved in the bottom of the carrier or between the bottom and the overlying solar cells is embedded.

While the carrier of the solar cover designed according to the invention is preferably formed in one piece, it can also be designed in several parts and for example in a form when embedding the Solar cells are glued together by the adhesive.
