Abstract

The ashtray comprises a housing (6) receiving an insert (1) in the form of a pivoted drawer with a front decor plate (2) and a release button (3), operated to allow the drawer to drop into the open position. The release button (3) can carry a display symbol (4) and is made of a transparent material, illuminated via an adjacent light source. The inside face of the release button may have profiled edges (7) for dispensing the light from the source (5) in a required direction, e.g. for illuminating the interior of the ash tray in its open position. ADVANTAGE - Provides aesthetic appearance and easy location of release button.

Description

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Aschenbecher in Fahrzeugen, insbesondere in Kraft fahrzeugen, mit einem Aschergehäuse, einem Aschereinsatz, einer Ascherblende, einer Entriegelungstaste mit oder ohne Symbol und einer Lichtquelle. The invention relates to an ashtray in vehicles, vehicles in particular in motor, with an ashtray housing, an ashtray, a ashtray cover, a release button with or without a symbol and a light source.

Der Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde, einen auch bei Dunkelheit gut han tierbaren Aschenbecher zu schaffen. The invention is based on the objective of creating a well-han in the dark-mountable ashtray.

Dies wird erfindungsgemäß dadurch erreicht, daß die Lichtquelle vor der Entrie gelungstaste angeordnet ist und die Entriegelungstaste aus transparentem Mate rial gebildet ist. This is inventively achieved in that the light source before the entrie gelungstaste is arranged and the release of transparent mate rial is formed. Solcherart ergibt sich eine beleuchtete Entriegelungstaste, mit oder ohne Symbol, vorne an der Ascherblende im geschlossenen Zustand des Aschenbechers und eine Beleuchtung des Aschereinsatzes im geöffneten Zustand des Aschenbechers, so daß ein direkter Lichtaustritt in den Fahrgastraum, vermie den wird. Of such results in an illuminated release, with or without a symbol, the front of the ashtray cover of the ashtray in a closed state and an illumination of the ashtray set in the open condition of the ashtray, so that a direct light exit into the passenger compartment, vermie the will.

In Ausgestaltung der Erfindung kann das Material der Entriegelungstaste einheit lich weiß oder beliebigfarben eingefärbt gewählt werden, wobei auch eine un terschiedliche Einfärbung möglich ist. In an embodiment of the invention, the material of the release button can be selected uniform manner white or colored beliebigfarben, where one un terschiedliche coloring is possible. Auf diese Weise könnte zum Beispiel das Symbol besonders farbig gekennzeichnet hervorgehoben werden, wie auch äs thetische Gesichtspunkte zu verwirklichen sind. In this way, for example, the symbol could be emphasized in particular color, as well äs thetical aspects are to be realized.

Nach einem anderen Merkmal der Erfindung weist das Material der Entriege lungstaste feuerhemmende Eigenschaften auf. According to another feature of the invention the material of the Entriege has lung key fire retardant properties. Dies ist notwendig, um die Aufla gen der Berufsgenossenschaft hinsichtlich Brandverhütung genüge zu tun. This is necessary to Aufla gen of the professional association in terms of fire prevention is enough to do.

Nach einer besonders wesentlichen weiterführenden Ausgestaltung der Erfin dung ist die innere Oberfläche der Verriegelungstaste mindestens im oberen Be reich profiliert ausgebildet, indem zum Beispiel die innere Oberfläche prismatisch geformte oder sphärisch gekrümmte Rippen aufweist. According to a particularly significant further embodiment of the dung OF INVENTION the inner surface of the locking button is profiled at least in the upper rich Be formed by having, for example, the inner surface of prism-shaped or spherically curved ribs. Diese lichtleitertechnische Gestaltung ermöglicht durch gezielt gestreutes Licht eine gleichmäßige Innenbe leuchtung des geöffneten Aschereinsatzes wie auch die Beleuchtung der Entrie gelungstaste. This light guide technical design made possible by deliberately scattered light uniform for indoor lighting of the open ashtray set as well as the lighting of the entrie gelungstaste.

Mit der Gesamtheit der erfinderischen Maßnahmen soll eine gute Beleuchtung des Aschenbechers in allen relevanten Zonen sowohl in eingeschobener wie auch ausgezogener Stellung des Aschereinsatzes erzielt werden. With all of the inventive measures, a good lighting of the ashtray in all relevant areas to be achieved both in the inserted as well as the extended position of the ashtray set. Ein störender Licht austritt zum Fahrgastraum wird in jedem Falle vermieden. A disturbing light exits toward the passenger compartment is avoided in every case.

Die Erfindung ist in einem Ausführungsbeispiel dargestellt und beschrieben. The invention is illustrated in one embodiment and described.

Es zeigt It shows

Fig. 1 einen Längsschnitt durch einen Aschenbecher, Fig. 1 shows a longitudinal section through an ashtray

Fig. 2 eine Draufsicht auf einen Aschenbecher. Fig. 2 is a plan view of an ashtray.

Der in den Fig. 1 und 2 gezeigte Aschenbecher 8 für ein Kraftfahrzeug besteht aus einem Aschergehäuse 6 , einem darin einliegenden Aschereinsatz 1 , einer Ascherblende 2 und einer Entriegelungstaste 3 . The ashtray shown in Figs. 1 and 2 8 for a motor vehicle consists of an ashtray housing 6, an inset therein ashtray 1, an ashtray cover 2 and a release button. 3 Die Entriegelungstaste 3 kann auch mit einem Symbol 4 , z. The release button 3 can also be a symbol 4, z. B. einer brennenden Zigarette versehen sein. As a lit cigarette may be provided.

Durch Druck auf die Entriegelungstaste 3 wird die Ascher-Öffnung-Automatik ausgelöst, deren bekannte technische Ausführung hier nicht im einzelnen erläu tert sein soll. By pressing the release 3, the Ash-opening automatic triggers their known technical design not erläu in detail should be tert.

Vor der Entriegelungstaste 3 ist eine Lichtquelle 5 angeordnet, die, infolge der transparenten Ausbildung der Entriegelungstaste 3 , bei Dunkelheit sowohl die Entriegelungstaste 3 wie auch den ausgeschobenen Aschereinsatz 1 beleuchtet. Prior to the release button 3, a light source 5 is arranged, which, due to the formation of the transparent release button 3, in darkness both the release button 3 as well as the pushed-out ashtray insert 1 is illuminated. Dieser erfindungsgemäße Effekt, mit einer einzigen Lichtquelle 5 verschiedene Beleuchtungszustände herzustellen, wird noch durch an der inneren Oberfläche der Verriegelungstaste angebrachte Profilierungen verstärkt, die zum Beispiel als prismatisch geformte oder sphärisch gekrümmte Rippen ausgebildet sein kön nen. This effect according to the invention to produce a single light source 5 different illumination states is enhanced by attached to the inner surface of the locking key profiles, which Kgs be formed, for example, as a prism-shaped or spherically curved ribs NEN. Solcherart werden gewünschte optische Effekte durch gezielt gestreutes Licht erzielt, ohne daß ein störender Lichtaustritt zum Fahrgastraum in Kauf ge nommen werden muß. In such a desired optical effects are obtained by selectively scattered light without an interfering light output from the passenger space must be taken into account ge.
