Description

Die Erfindung bezieht sich auf eine Anordnung einer Sonderein richtung mit den Merkmalen des Oberbegriffs des Patentanspruchs 1, die z. The invention relates to an arrangement of a probe device having the features of the preamble of claim 1, z. B. aus DE 36 05 704 C2 bekannt sind. For example, from DE 36 05 704 C2 are known.

Dort wird ein Adapter beschrieben, der an die vorzugsweise an einer Fahrzeug-Windschutzscheibe angeklebte Halterung eines Innenrückblickspiegels ansetzbar ist und selbst als Halter für eine durch die Windschutzscheibe hindurch, also in Fahrtrich tung wirkende Sondereinrichtung, z. Here, an adapter is described which can be attached to the preferably adhered to a vehicle windscreen mounting an interior rearview mirror and itself acts as a holder for a through the windshield through, ie in driving direction tung probe means, for. B. eine Magnetsonde für ein Navigationssystem, eine Einrichtung zur Abstands- und/oder Ge schwindigkeitsmessung gegenüber einem vorausfahrenden Fahrzeug oder einen Sender für Fernsteueraufgaben ausgeführt ist. As a magnetic probe for a navigation system, a device for distance and / or Ge schwindigkeitsmessung against a preceding vehicle or a service is executed for remote-control tasks. Trotz seiner teilweisen Abdeckung durch den Körper des Innen rückblickspiegels bildet dieser Adapter einen stilistisch stö renden Fremdkörper im Fahrgastraum. Despite its partial covering by the body of the inner rear-view mirror, this adapter forms a stylistically troublefree Governing foreign bodies in the passenger compartment.

Es ist auch bekannt (DE 33 38 139 A1), einen Lichtsensor für die selbsttätige Abblendsteuerung eines Fahrzeug-Innenrückblick spiegels unmittelbar - und vom Fahrgastraum aus sichtbar - zum Fahrzeugheck hin weisend in den an die Windschutzscheibe ange klebten Spiegelfuß einzusetzen. It is also known (DE 33 38 139 A1), a light sensor for automatic dimming of a vehicle interior rear-view mirror immediately - and visible from the passenger compartment - pointing towards the vehicle rear insert in the attached to the windshield glued mirror. Auch ist es bekannt (DE 32 21 612 A1), einen Temperaturfühler einer Klimaanlage in einen Spiegel fuß einzusetzen. It is also known (DE 32 21 612 A1) to use a temperature sensor of an air conditioner in a mirror foot.

Schließlich sind Spiegelhalterungen bekannt (DE 34 14 279 C2), bei denen die eigentliche Schwenklagerung des Innenrückblicks piegels am Dachhimmel des Fahrzeugs angeordnet ist und sich eine zusätzliche, längeneinstellbare Stütze unmittelbar an der Windschutzscheibe abstützt. Finally mirror mounts are known (DE 34 14 279 C2), in which the actual pivot bearing of the inner retrospective piegels on the headliner of the vehicle is arranged and an additional, adjustable-length support is supported directly on the windshield.

Die Erfindung hat die Aufgabe, ausgehend von einer gattungsbil denden Anordnung eine besonders unauffällige Unterbringung einer Sondereinrichtung zu schaffen. The invention has the task of starting from a gattungsbil Denden arrangement to create a particularly unobtrusive placement of a special facility.

Diese Aufgabe wird mit den kennzeichnenden Merkmalen des Pa tentanspruchs 1 erfindungsgemäß gelöst. This object is achieved according to the invention with the characterizing features of tentanspruchs Pa. 1

Die kennzeichnenden Merkmale der Unteransprüche geben vorteil hafte Weiterbildungen der erfindungsgemäßen Anordnung an. The characterizing features of the subclaims specify advantageous to refinements of the inventive arrangement.

Indem die Wirkfläche der Sondereinrichtung unmittelbar in die mit der Windschutzscheibe in Berührung stehende Fläche der Spie gelhalterung eingesetzt wird, ist die Sondereinrichtung selbst vom Fahrgastraum überhaupt nicht und von außen nur schlecht sichtbar; By making the effective area of ​​the probe device is inserted directly into the gel holder in contact with the windshield surface of the Spie, the probe device itself from the passenger compartment and not only poorly visible from the outside; gleichzeitig bleiben aber die Vorteile der gattungs bildenden Anordnung (scheibennah, im Wischfeld der Scheibenwi scher liegend) vollständig erhalten. the advantages of the generic-forming arrangement remain the same (scheibennah, shear lying in the wiping field Scheibenwi) but completely preserved.

Vorzugsweise wird die Sondereinrichtung als Sensor ausgeführt sein, der eine Benetzung der Windschutzscheibe durch Nieder schläge erfaßt und mit seinen Signalen insbesondere eine Schei benwischeranlage steuert. Preferably, the probe device will be designed as a sensor which detects a wetting of the windscreen by precipitations and with its signals in particular a ticket benwischeranlage controls. Derartige sensorgesteuerte Anlagen sind bereits vielfach beschrieben worden; Such sensor-controlled systems have already been described many times; eine bekannte Bauform (DE 40 06 174 C1) umfaßt einen Infrarot-Sensor mit winklig zu einander stehenden Sender und Empfänger, wobei der in der Wind schutzscheibe reflektierte Strahlengang durch Regentropfen si gnifikant verändert wird, andere haben kapazitive Sensoren (z. B. DE 40 00 736 A1). a known design (DE 40 06 174 C1) comprises an infrared sensor with angularly related to each transmitter and receiver, wherein in the windshield reflected beam path by raindrops si is changed gnifikant, others have capacitive sensors (eg. for example, DE 40 00736 A1).

Eine andere Ausführung der Sondereinrichtung ist eine solche als Lichtsensor für durch die Fensterscheibe einfallendes Licht, z. Another embodiment of the probe device is such as a light sensor for the window pane by incident light, for example. B. als Referenzsensor für die Außenhelligkeit bei einer automatischen Einstellung von Instrumentenbeleuchtungen, oder auch als Empfänger einer Infrarot-Fernbedienungseinrich tung für die Verschlüsse des Fahrzeugs (vgl. hierzu DE 91 04 319 U1). B. as a reference sensor for the ambient brightness in an automatic adjustment of the instrument illumination, or as a receiver of an infrared Fernbedienungseinrich processing for the closures of the vehicle (see FIG. Thereto DE 91 04 319 U1).

Natürlich sind auch Kombinationen der vorstehend und im gattungsgemäßen Stand der Technik genannten Ausführungen technisch möglich. Of course, combinations of the above mentioned and in the generic state of the art designs are technically possible.

Die einzige Figur zeigt in starker schematisierter Vereinfachung eine Darstellung eines Innenrückblickspiegels, in dessen auf eine Windschutzscheibe aufgeklebtem Spiegelfuß eine als Regen sensor ausgeführte Sondereinrichtung eingesetzt ist. The single figure shows in schematic simplification strong a representation of an interior rear-view mirror in whose affixed to a windshield mirror a special facility as a rain sensor performed is used.

An eine Windschutzscheibe 1 eines nicht weiter dargestellten Fahrzeugs ist eine Kontaktfläche 2 einer Spiegelhalterung 3 für einen Innenrückblickspiegel 4 aufgeklebt. A windshield 1 of a vehicle not further shown, a contact surface 2 of a mirror holder 3 for an internal rear-view mirror 4 is glued on. Dieser ist gegenüber der Spiegelhalterung 3 in der üblichen Weise mittels eines Ku gelgelenks 5 schwenkbar. This is pivotable relative to the mirror holder 3 in the usual manner by means of a Ku gelgelenks. 5 Innerhalb der Spiegelhalterung 3 ist ein Gehäuse oder eine Kammer 7 ausgespart, die an einer von einem umlaufenden Rand 6 der Kontaktfläche 2 hin umfaßten, zur Windschutzscheibe hin gewandten Seite offen ist. Inside the mirror holder 3, a housing or a chamber 7 is recessed, which included at a circumferential of an edge 6 of the pad 2 out from the windshield facing toward side is open.

In den Spiegelfuß bzw. die Kammer 7 ist eine nur angedeutet dargestellte Sondereinrichtung 8 in Gestalt eines Infrarot-Re flexions-Niederschlagssensors bekannter Bauart eingesetzt. In the mirror or the chamber 7, a probe means only indicated illustrated is used flexions-precipitation sensor of known design in the form of an infrared-Re. 8 Ihre der Windschutzscheibe 1 zugewandete Wirkfläche 9 stimmt etwa mit der offenen Seite der Kammer 7 überein. Your windshield 1 facing toward effective surface 9 is the same as with the open side of the chamber. 7

Da die Spiegelhalterung 3 aus einem undurchsichtigen Material besteht, ist kein störender Seiteneinfall von Fremdlicht in die Kammer 7 möglich. Since the mirror holder 3 is made of an opaque material, no disturbing side of incidence of external light into the chamber is possible. 7 Auch ist die Sondereinrichtung 8 vom Fahr zeuginnenraum her vollständig unsichtbar. The special unit 8 is completely invisible from driving convincing interior ago. Ferner liegt die Kon taktfläche 2 im Wischfeld der (des) Fahrzeug-Scheibenwischer(s). Further, the con tact surface 2 is located in the wiping area of (the) vehicle windshield wiper (s). Grundsätzlich kann die Anordnung auch so betrachtet werden, daß ein die Sondereinrichtung (den Sensor) einfassendes Gehäuse einstückig mit dem Spiegelfuß verbunden ist bzw. in diesen übergeht. In principle, the arrangement can also be viewed as a probe means (the sensor) bordering housing is integrally connected to the mirror base and merges into the latter.

Die elektrische Kontaktierung der Sondereinrichtung 8 zum Fahr zeugbordnetz ist hier nicht weiter dargestellt; The electrical contact of the probe means 8 for generating driving vehicle electrical system is not further shown here; für den Fall, daß der Innenrückblickspiegel 4 durch Fremdkraft einstell- oder abblendbar sein sollte, kann die Zuleitung zur Sondereinrichtung mit den anderen Zuleitungen in einem Strang verlegt werden. for the case that the internal rearview mirror 4 adjustable by external force or should be dimmable, the supply line to the probe means with the other leads can be laid in the same direction.

Eine vollflächige Verklebung der Kontaktfläche 2 mit der Wind schutzscheibe kann vorgesehen werden, wenn sichergestellt ist, daß der Kleber transparent auftrocknet (optischer Kitt). Full-surface bonding of the pad 2 with the wind can be provided windshield, if it is ensured that the adhesive dries transparent (optical cement). Al ternativ wird die Sondereinrichtung 8 eine mit dem geklebten Rand 6 der Kontaktfläche 2 fluchtende durchsichtige, ggf. ela stische Abdeckung ihrer Wirkfläche 9 umfassen, die dann auch einen Teil der Kontaktfläche bildet. Al ternatively, the probe means 8 is a aligned with the glued edge 6 of the pad 2 transparent, possibly ela STIC cover their active surface include 9, which then also forms a part of the contact surface.

Der einen Teil der Kontaktfläche 2 bildende Rand 6 der Kammer 7 ist gegenüber der Wandstärke der Spiegelhalterung 3 im Bereich der Kammer flanschartig wesentlich breiter ausgeführt, so daß er eine hinreichend große Fläche für eine dauerhafte Verklebung mit der Windschutzscheibe 1 bietet. The part of the pad 2 forming edge 6 of the chamber 7 is carried out with respect to the wall thickness of the mirror holder 3 in the region of the chamber flange is substantially wider so that it provides a sufficiently large surface for permanent bonding to the windshield. 1 Natürlich kann auch eine sich stetig zum Rand hin verdickende Wandstärke der Kammer vor gesehen oder der Rand 6 als Innenflansch ausgeführt werden. Of course, a steadily toward the edge thickening wall thickness of the chamber in front can be seen, or the skirt 6 are designed as inner flange.

Es ist auch möglich, andere Bauformen von Sondereinrichtungen vorzusehen, insbesondere sehr flach bauende - z. It is also possible to provide other types of special facilities, in particular very flat - z. B. einen kapa zitiven Niederschlagssensor -, um diese in einen aufzuklebenden flachen Fußteil einsetzen zu können, von dem die übrige Spiegel halterung dann in bekannter Weise abgenommen werden kann. B. a kapa zitiven precipitation sensor - in order to use them in a stick-on flat base portion from which the rest of the mirror holder can then be removed in known manner. Ferner kann die Kontaktfläche auch in bekannter Weise von einer längeneinstellbaren Abstützung gebildet sein, die nur durch das Eigengewicht der Gesamtanordnung an die Innenseite der Fen sterscheibe 1 angedrückt wird. Further, the contact surface can also be formed in known manner by a length adjustable support, which sterscheibe only by the weight of the overall assembly to the inside of Fen is pressed. 1
