Abstract

Arrangement for forming an elongate, channel-like receiving space (145), which is designed in particular for receiving illumination units (31), the arrangement comprising two elongated profile parts (140, 150) which are connected to form the receiving recess (145) in a form-locking or clamping manner are, and wherein at both end sides of the receiving space (145) each have a sealing element (10) is arranged, which fills the receiving space (145) in the end region.

Description

  • The present invention relates to an arrangement which is provided for forming an elongated, channel-like receiving space, which is provided in particular for receiving illumination units, in order thereby to form, for example, a so-called light band.
  • Trunking systems are widely used in lighting technology, as they allow flexible adaptation of the lighting to external conditions. In addition, there is the possibility of using such a lighting system to achieve continuous lighting over a long distance.
  • Known light band systems are based on the use of a so-called mounting rail arrangement, which represents the central support for all other components of the lighting system. Such arrangements consist of individual, successively arranged mounting rail elements, the z. B. are formed of elongated sheet-metal profile parts, which are open, for example, in cross-section U-shaped and down so that they form a longitudinally extending receiving space, which is initially used for the arrangement of the responsible for the power supply of the light source of the lighting system components. On the one hand, these are the cables for the power supply, which usually run along the entire arrangement, and possibly also for the signal transmission. Furthermore, however, at least the contacting means of lighting modules to be fastened to the mounting rail arrangement are often also accommodated within the receiving space and possibly also associated operating devices such as converters or the like, with the aid of which the power supply provided by the through-wiring is converted into a current suitable for operating the light sources becomes.
  • In continuation of the variants described above, the present invention relates in particular to a lighting system in which the light sources themselves are arranged within the receiving space and the underside of the mounting rail assembly is then closed by a translucent cover which forms the light exit element of the light band realized in this way.
  • For optical reasons, it is not practical in such a solution to realize this cover of individual, longitudinally successively arranged items, as at the joints light more or less unhindered could leave the lighting system and, accordingly, no homogeneous light output could be realized. In an earlier application of the Applicant ( WO 2014/174019 A1 ), therefore, a cover is described, which in principle is made "endless" and is designed such that it can be wound up for transport to a roll. This cover is then arranged in a single piece over the entire length of the mounting rail arrangement so that the optical properties of the lighting system are significantly improved.
  • It is also known from a further application of the applicant to additionally line the receiving space of a mounting rail arrangement with a longitudinally extending, again preferably integrally formed profile part, which is connectable to the cover. The aim of this measure is to create a receiving space for the electrical and electronic components of the lighting system that is as well protected from external influences, especially from dust and / or moisture. Since, as mentioned above, the individual mounting rails have only a limited length and accordingly usually a mounting rail arrangement consists of several, frontally joined support rails, inevitably occur at the joints gaps or openings through which the protection of the components therein is impaired from external influences. This is avoided according to the above-mentioned solution by the Applicant, that now the interior is additionally lined with a profile part made of a flexible material. Also, this profile part as well as the cover is advantageously designed such that it can be transported wound up into a roll.
  • With the help of the solution described above, so over its entire length away tightly enclosed receiving space can be created, in which then the arrangement of other components, for example. The light band is done, with a particular advantage of the known from the applications mentioned solutions is that the exact length of the receiving space and thus, for example, the light band can be set freely by the end user. He only has to cut off the mounting rails and the profile parts provided for forming the receiving space in the desired length on site. However, this in turn means that no frontal seals the receiving space can be made in the factory, but this must be done by the end user itself.
  • For this purpose, there are still no satisfactory solutions, which is why the present invention is based on the task, a Possibility to make available to seal a channel-like receiving space of the type described above at its frontal areas in a simple but reliable manner.
  • The object is achieved by an arrangement for forming an elongate, channel-like receiving space having the features of claim 1. Advantageous developments of the invention are the subject of the dependent claims.
  • The solution according to the invention is based on the idea of providing propane-like sealing elements to the end user, which are arranged in the front area of the receiving space and designed such that they form-fit the receiving space in the front area.
  • According to the present invention, an arrangement for forming an elongated, channel-like receiving space, which is designed in particular for receiving lighting units of a lighting system, is proposed, wherein the arrangement comprises two elongate profile parts, which are connected to form the receiving space form-fitting or clamping with each other and in each case a sealing element is arranged on both end sides of the receiving space, which fills the receiving space in the forehead area.
  • After the profile parts have been cut in the desired length by the end user during assembly, for example, the light band, only the sealing element according to the invention must be positioned only in the front area and finally the connection of the two elongated profile parts are made in this frontal area. As a result, an elongated receiving space is created, which is enclosed on all sides and in which accordingly components dust and / or moisture can be arranged.
  • In this case, according to a preferred embodiment of the invention, it may be provided that the sealing elements have at least one passage opening for the passage of cables or lines into or out of the receiving space. As a result, the passage of lines is made possible to supply, for example, located in the receiving space components with power or to allow signal transmission to or from the units. Preferably, these sealing openings are in the event that they are not used, in turn sealingly closed, which can be done in a simple manner that these openings are filled by an insert, which consists of the same material as the other sealing element and fills the passage opening form-fitting ,
  • Preferably, the sealing element consists of an at least slightly compressible material and is in this case designed such that it has a slightly enlarged in comparison to the cross section of the receiving space in a not arranged in the receiving space state. This ensures that slight intolerances or deviations in the shape between the outer contour of the sealing element and the inner contour of the receiving space can be compensated and despite all, a reliable sealing of the receiving space in the forehead area can be done. The effect of the seal can in this case also be optimized in that the arrangement has a total of means which exert pressure in the front region of the receiving space as possible on the outside of the profile parts. If, as already known from the prior art, the receiving space is formed within a U-shaped, elongate carrier element, then the elongate carrier element is likewise a component of the means which exert pressure on at least one profile part, since the carrier element at least partially surrounds the profile parts supported on the outside and accordingly ensures that they also enclose the sealing element in a suitable manner. However, the sealing effect can be further improved by the fact that the arrangement has a total of frontal end caps to be fastened, which exert additional pressure on at least one of the profile parts in the attached state. At the same time, these end caps can provide protection for the respective sealing element against external, mechanical influences such as impacts or splash water, and are preferably designed in such a way that they can be latched to the carrier element.
  • A suitable positioning of the sealing elements in the front region of the receiving space is preferably ensured by special additional carrier parts, which are each designed to hold the sealing elements. It can be provided in particular that the carrier parts fix the respective sealing element in the longitudinal direction of the arrangement, which is realized according to a preferred embodiment in that the carrier parts each pass through an opening in the associated sealing element with a web and provided on the web, the sealing element engaging behind locking means are.
  • If an elongate carrier element is used to hold the receiving space, it is preferably provided that the carrier parts are pushed onto this carrier element, for example, in the longitudinal direction, so that a positionally correct positioning of the sealing elements is automatically achieved. In this case, the already mentioned above end caps pivotally attached to the support member be arranged so that its installation can be realized in a particularly simple manner.
  • Furthermore, it can be provided that the configuration of the carrier part with the associated end cap is such that lines or cables guided through the sealing element can be conducted laterally upwards away. This also represents a difference to previously known solutions for light bands, in which usually lines for signal transmission and / or through-wiring were led out frontally on the vertical walls of the end caps. In contrast, in the solution according to the present invention, the routing of the lines can be made such that they are virtually unrecognizable to an observer.
  • The invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. Show it:
  • 1 - 3 a section of an elongated lighting system with an enclosed channel-like receiving space for lighting units;
  • 4 a partial section of the end portion of the lighting system in which the sealing element according to the invention and its arrangement can be seen;
  • 5 and 6 the arrangement of the end cap in the open or swung out state and
  • 7 and 8th the arrangement of the end cap in the closed state in which it exerts pressure on the light exit element to ensure a tight closure of the receiving space.
  • Based on 1 - 3 should first be explained the basic structure of a light strip, which has an elongated receiving space, which is to be sealed with the inventive solution also frontally against external influences.
  • Supporting component of the lighting system 100 is an elongated mounting rail arrangement 110 extending in the longitudinal direction of the lighting system 100 extends and the holder of all the essential components of the lighting system 100 serves. The mounting rail arrangement 110 consists of several elongated individual elements, the so-called DIN rail elements 111 which are the particular in 3 have recognizable cross-sectional shape and are joined together at their ends by means not shown connecting parts. These are usually made of metal or sheet metal profile parts, which have sufficient stability to a stable elongated support system for the lighting system 100 to build. Accordingly, it is not practical, these DIN rail elements 111 to realize in any length. Instead, individual elements are usually provided which have standard lengths, these standard elements then being suitable for the entire mounting rail arrangement 110 be combined. This is then attached to a suitable support, for example. On the ceiling of a room to be illuminated, for which there are different mounting options. In the present case, a variant is shown in which the system is attached by means of a cable suspension to a - not shown - ceiling. For this purpose, at regular intervals at the top of the DIN rail assembly 110 retaining clips 105 arranged, in each case one extending to the ceiling rope 106 is anchored.
  • As in particular the sectional representation of 3 shows is by the DIN rail elements 111 or the mounting rail arrangement 110 Overall, an approximately U-shaped, open to the bottom receiving space 120 created, the support and storage of other essential components of the lighting system 100 serves. For example, usually within this recording room 120 laid in the longitudinal direction of passage lines, the power supply and possibly also the control of the light source of the lighting system 100 serve. For example. Lightbar systems are known in which the lines along the bottom surface 112 the mounting rails 111 run, in which case suitable contacting elements are arranged at regular intervals, which serve the contacting by be fixed to the mounting rail assembly lamp modules.
  • In the present case, another conceivable variant is shown, in which it is not provided that at certain positions individual separate lighting modules on the mounting rail assembly 110 can be arranged. Instead, inside the recording room 120 now an elongated bulb 130 arranged, which consists of a plurality of connected to a chain LED lighting modules 131 consists. In the 3 indicated LED lighting modules 131 are here through a through-wiring, which consists of several individual cables 132 exists, interconnected. The number of cables 132 depends on whether the wiring only a power supply for the LED lighting modules 131 should be made or control signals to control the bulbs to be transmitted. In the assembled state of the bulbs 130 is then at regular intervals of the lighting system 100 from the LED lighting modules 131 light emitted, which then on the underside of the DIN rail assembly 110 is delivered.
  • A peculiarity of the in the 1 - 3 illustrated lighting strip system 100 It consists first of all in that the recording room 120 the DIN rail arrangement 110 additionally by an elongated profile part 140 is lined. In the assembled state also has this profile part 140 an approximately U-shaped, downwardly open and slightly widening configuration. It consists of a flexible material whose sidewalls 142 are formed at its lower end such that the lower edges of the side walls 114 the DIN rail elements 111 in corresponding recesses 143 of the profile part 140 intervention. This will be the profile part 140 clamped to the mounting rail arrangement 110 fixed, while a further stabilization of the flexible profile part 140 in the mounting rail arrangement 110 characterized in that on the one hand the bottom area 141 in terms of its shape to the floor area 112 the DIN rail elements 111 adapted and on the other hand from the side walls 114 the DIN rail elements 111 corresponding projections 115 protrude inward, which in addition the side walls 142 of the profile part 140 be supported at about halfway up from the outside.
  • This profile part 140 consists as already mentioned of a flexible material, which brings the advantage that due to its flexibility, the possibility exists, the profile part 140 to wind up in a roll in the unassembled state. This brings considerable advantages, since the profile part preferably produced in an extrusion process 140 "Endless", so can be made in practice with a very long length and wound up to the role, so that its transport to the site is significantly simplified. Here then can the profile part 140 be cut to a length, preferably the entire length of the DIN rail assembly 110 or the lighting system 100 corresponds, so that in particular the profile part 140 the joints between two longitudinally successive support rail elements 111 bridged. Ultimately, with the help of the profile part 140 apart from the open bottom and from the two front sides a fully enclosed recording room 145 created so that in particular from the side of the mounting rail arrangement 110 There is no risk of dust or moisture entering this storage room 145 can penetrate. In this way, the protection against external influences can be significantly increased, so that in a simple and elegant way there is the possibility to realize a light band, which corresponds to a so-called. Higher protection class.
  • To achieve this level of protection is of course required that the receiving space 145 for the electrical and electronic components of the lighting system 100 is also closed by the light exit side.
  • This is the light band system 100 according to the 1 - 3 through a cover 150 achieved, which initially a plate-shaped elongated, consisting of a light-transmitting material light exit element 151 as well as on both sides of the light exit element 151 extending fastening profiles 152 having. The shape of the lateral attachment profiles is here - as can be seen - to the shape of the lower end portions of the profile part 140 adapted, allowing a clamping or positive connection between both elements 140 . 150 over the entire length is achieved.
  • Such a cover 150 is, as already mentioned above, from an earlier application ( WO 2014/174019 A1 ) and in turn has the advantage that it is so flexible that it can be wound from the elongated state into a roll. This is achieved by the fact that the material for the light exit element 151 is chosen such that this is at least limp, and the lateral attachment profiles are formed from a more flexible material. Again arise as well as the profile part 140 the same benefits, namely that the cover 150 be transported in the rolled-up state much easier to the place of use and there to the desired length, preferably the total length of the lighting system 100 corresponds, can be cut off.
  • The resulting one-piece embodiment of the cover 150 and thus in particular of the light exit element 151 not only has the consequence that, as described above, the recording room 145 In addition, it also leads to optical advantages in terms of light output, since no joints, gaps or other gaps arise over the light can escape unhindered. With the help of in the 1 - 3 illustrated lighting strip system 100 Thus, a homogeneous and uniform light output over a large length can be achieved.
  • A special advantage of in the 1 - 3 shown light band 100 It also consists in the fact that all over the entire length extending components, so support rail assembly 110 , the profile part 140 for lining the reception room 120 as well as the cover 150 can be easily cut on site during assembly to the desired length. This can be done by the end user without much effort, so that in terms of length, the light band almost can be adapted to any specific location.
  • However, the fact that the above-mentioned components are cut by the consumer or installer to set the final length, in turn, means that the frontal sealing or sealing of the light band 100 can not be made at the factory and also only during assembly of the light strip 100 must be done. However, in order to be able to achieve a desired so-called protection class, in particular the end faces of the 145 Be sealed sealing space in order to prevent the entry of dust or moisture at these end areas. With the help of the solution according to the invention, which will be described in more detail below, this goal can be realized in a simple and fast manner.
  • The core idea of the invention consists in the two end regions of the lighting system 100 each a propfenartiges sealing element 10 to use, which in terms of its cross section the cross section of the receiving space 145 corresponds and accordingly closes this space frontally accurate contour and thus sealing.
  • The embodiment and arrangement of this sealing element according to the invention 10 can the partial sectional view of 4 it can be seen that the outer contour of the sealing element 10 is chosen such that it over its entire circumference across the entire surface of the inner sides of the profile part 140 as well as the cover 150 is applied.
  • Strictly speaking, it is preferably provided that the sealing element 10 in terms of its dimensions in cross section compared to the cross section of the receiving space 145 is slightly enlarged. However, in this case, there is the sealing element 10 made of an at least slightly compressible material, so that it is with its outer contour under pressure to the inner walls of the two profile parts 140 . 150 applies, whereby the sealing effect is further improved. As a material for the sealing element 10 So comes a slightly elastic material in question, which is also impenetrable to dust and moisture in particular.
  • However, as it will usually be necessary in the recording room 145 arranged electronic components, eg. The lighting units 131 be supplied with power and possibly also to allow transmission of data for communication with a higher-level control unit is preferably provided, the sealing element 10 be executed such that optionally lines through the sealing element 10 can be passed. The sectional view of 4 can be seen that for this purpose the sealing element 10 corresponding passage openings 15 and 16 which preferably have a circular cross-section and, if necessary, allow the passage of lines. If the cross section of these lines is smaller than the average of the through holes 15 respectively. 16 , then could possibly be made a further seal through a grommet or similar measures.
  • On the other hand, should the passage openings 15 or 16 are not used, they must of course be sealed, which can be done in a simple manner that in these openings 15 respectively. 16 one of the shape of these through holes 15 . 16 corresponding - not shown - sealing part is inserted, which is ideally made of the same material as the sealing element 10 , In reality, it is provided that first the through holes 15 . 16 are closed by the corresponding sealing member, which then removed if necessary during assembly, so in a simple manner from the sealing element 10 can be pulled out.
  • To ensure a durable, reliable sealing of the receiving space 145 through the sealing element 10 To ensure that this should preferably in the longitudinal direction of the light band 100 be fixed. This is achieved in the solution shown in the figures, characterized in that the sealing element 10 with the help of a carrier part 20 held in the desired position. The carrier part 20 Here, in supervision, first of all has an end face over the carrier rail element 111 protruding bow-like, C-shaped area 21 (recognizable eg in 7 ), which is the pivotable holder of a later explained in more detail end cap 30 serves. At the same time extends from the bow-shaped, C-shaped area 21 a footbridge 23 in the direction of the DIN rail element 111 , This jetty 23 in this case penetrates a corresponding slot or an opening in the sealing element 10 so this on the jetty 23 the carrier part 20 is stored. At the footbridge 23 provided projections may then be provided to the sealing element 10 behind and thereby additionally fix in the longitudinal direction.
  • The carrier part 20 itself is then with the deferred sealing element 10 frontally on the DIN rail element 111 deferred, with this on both sides of the bow-shaped area 21 downward flanks 25 are provided, which laterally telescopically in the inner space 120 of the DIN rail element 111 intervene and accordingly cause a leadership. This will not only correct positioning of the support member 20 ensures, but at the same time also ensures that the sealing element 10 which is on the jetty 23 the carrier part 20 is stored, seen in the transverse direction centered in the receiving space 145 , of the profile parts 140 and 150 is enclosed, is positioned.
  • Preferably, this is done arranging the carrier part 20 with the sealing element 10 in a state in which the cover 150 at least in the end-side end region of the light band 100 not yet complete with the profile part 140 was connected. Only when the sealing element 10 is in the desired position, takes place in this area, the final attachment of the cover 150 so that the sealing element 10 then over its entire circumference on the profile parts 140 . 150 is applied and achieved the seal.
  • It is preferably provided that this seal is additionally supported by that on the underside of the cover 150 a force is exerted so that these - together with the through the DIN rail element 111 supported profile part 140 - With sufficient for the sealing pressure at the peripheral region of the sealing element 10 can be present. This is the solution according to the invention by means of a reference numerals in the figures 30 provided end cap pivotally attached to the bow-shaped area 21 the carrier part 20 is stored. The 5 and 6 show here the end cap 30 in swung-out position, as recognizable in the end region of the DIN rail element 111 with the profile parts 140 . 150 is freely accessible, for example, to perform the above-described steps in the assembly of the light band can.
  • Finally, however, then the end cap 30 in the in the 7 and 8th shown pivoted position in the side surfaces 31 provided flanks 32 the top of the DIN rail element 111 so that the end cap 30 in this position with the DIN rail element 111 locked and fixed. In this position lie simultaneously on the floor surface 33 the end cap 30 provided ribs 34 (please refer 4 ) under pressure at the bottom of the light emitting element 150 at. The end cap 30 thus additionally reinforces the pressure on the sealing element 10 and thereby contributes even better to the fact that the sealing element 10 full surface on the profile parts 140 . 150 is applied. At the same time, however, the end cap 30 in a simple way again in the in the 4 - 6 shown position swung back to perform any maintenance, and in particular the removal of the cover 150 to enable.
  • It should be noted that the end cap 30 not necessarily pivotable on the support part 20 However, the solution shown is particularly advantageous, since not several separate parts must be assembled to the final desired configuration.
  • In addition to the function described above, namely in addition to the cover 150 Pressure on the sealing element 10 exercise, and also the end of the light band 100 visually complete, also fulfills the end cap 30 also a protective function, since they are in the swung state, which in the 7 and 8th is shown, the sealing element 10 additionally supported by external mechanical influences. There is no risk that splash or other external influences directly the sealing element 10 meet and possibly adversely affect its sealing effect. At the same time, however, is advantageously the shape of the support member 20 , in particular the shape of the bow-shaped area 21 , as well as the arrangement of the end cap 30 chosen such that even in the closed state in 7 recognizable implementation opening 27 remains that allows it through the sealing element 10 passed lines can be led away laterally or upwards. This also represents a difference to known from the prior art solutions in which lines were usually led out the front side and were accordingly recognizable to an observer.
  • Ultimately, therefore, the measures according to the invention contribute to the simple creation of a trunking system in which all the components to be protected can be arranged in a simple but reliable manner within a completely tightly enclosed receiving space. This makes it possible to provide a light strip of higher protection with a relatively low cost.
