Abstract

The invention relates to an automobile antenna device having at least one antenna structure (5-10) mounted on the glass pane (3) of an automobile. The base point terminal connections of all antennas that are assembled in the contact points (11) of a contact field (4) are surrounded by a plastic mount (1) arranged on the glass pane (3) of an automobile in which a high frequency device (2) can be removably fixed, whose connection terminals are connected to contact points (11) without using any connecting lines. One advantage provided by the removable arrangement of the high frequency device (2) on the glass pane (3) of the automobile is that no tolerances need to be compensated for between the glass pane (3) of the automobile and the body. Said arrangement also makes it possible to remove the high frequency device (2) in a simple and cost-effective manner for repair purposes or to replace it with another high frequency device without having to change the glass pane (3) of the automobile. One particular advantage is that when the contact elements of the high frequency device (2), which are embodied as contact springs (12), directly contact the matching contact points (11) in the contact field (4) after they have been inserted in the mount (1), said elements also contribute to fixing the high frequency device (2) in the mount in view of their elastic effect since the noses (36-39) of the high frequency device (2) are pressed against the projecting parts (28-31) of the mount (1).

Description

Patent application

Vehicle antenna device

The invention relates to a vehicle antenna device according to the preamble of

claim 1

Such Vehicle antenna device is, for example, by the

DE 37 19 692 C2 and its practical realization in an embodiment for Mercedes Benz car of the series W 210 known case is the Hochfrequenzgerat which matching circuits and amplifiers includes, attached to the body, and (via a cable arranged at the wafer edge contact points of the antenna structure s) connected to the cables at the contact points of the disc either fixed (by sounding) or releasably (plug-in or push-button connections) and the high-frequency gerat reversed either inserted or angelotet

Said contacts have COMPLETE tolerances between the body and associated with a flexible adhesive vehicle front or - offset rear window, resulting in the production of the contacts, the assembly of disc and Hochfrequenzgerat and by the vehicle Ruttelbewegungen

The tolerances of the contact points of the antenna structures produced as silver pressure against the disc edge and the disc relative to the body require, inter alia, relatively large contact surfaces, which are high-frequency-technologically unfavorable, the laying of the connection cable affects the antenna parameters, in particular the terminal impedance of the antenna, thereby creating the input side high tolerances in Hochfrequenzgerat which also must be compensated for all soundings on the vehicle window are also problematic because they significant glass breakage rates and thus an increase in the price of the system lead EP 0,386,678 Bl it is also known due to the bias and the poor thermal conductivity of the glass, at a vehicle antenna after anzubrin- preamble of claim 1 for connection to antenna structures provided active four poles by sounding or bonding firmly on a vehicle window gen in this Anordnun g must be compensated for any tolerances between the vehicle window and bodywork addition occur due to lack of relative movement of the Hochfrequenzgerats relative to the body and not be compensated vibration tolerances between the two with a moving vehicle on This known device, however, is not suitable for repair or replacement of the high-frequency appliances such as this in a complex manner in the first alternative a Abloten and Wiederanloten the repaired or exchanged high frequency APPARATE and in the second alternative, even a complete disc replacement is also required cable and solder connections for the connection of the quadripole to the antennas are necessary, that of an increased complexity and the risk already described disc break condition

The invention has for its object to provide a vehicle antenna device of the aforementioned type, wherein the Hochfrequenzgerat to the disc fastenable and at the same time electrically without connecting cables and without sounding with the connection points of the antenna structure (s) is detachably connectable in a simple and cost-effective manner

This object is achieved by the characterizing features of claim 1. Due to the releasable arrangement of the high frequency APPARATE on the vehicle window, not only the tolerances as well as relative movements between the body and disc are irrelevant and only have to compensate for the one order of magnitude lower tolerances of the silver pressure, but additionally also random replacements easily and This can be done quickly executed for repair purposes or for the use of different radio frequency devices to adapt to changing conditions

Moreover, it is also possible for a number of vehicles the same sok j -

and provide this angle then depending on the car type of antenna or to bestucken with a matching Hochfrequenzgerat whose outer shape posted for a secure mounting to the base matched always is the same and their contact scheme corresponding to the configurations of the respective connection points

The inventive device is thus compared to the prior art described above significantly more versatile and a random change caused an expensive disc changes when high-frequency devices while the Bedurf issen of the case adapted to different electronic units can be used As a rule, this is an amplifier with adjustment circuit, it but it can also - in the case that only a small, not disturbing the viewing area of ​​the Fahres disc surface is available - be merely an adaptation circuit, which for example a ribbon cable, either directly or via a secured to the body amplifier with a receiver or transmitter which is in communication

Further, the Hochfrequenzgerat, so for example, an amplifier, directly, that is to connect to the antenna base without connecting line, whereby both independent of the structure of the vehicle good fit as well as - in the case of reception - an optimal signal-to-noise ratio is achieved at the Verstarkerausgang In the transmission case by direct connection of Hochfrequenzgerats to the antenna structure (s) not matching pad, but only one of the transformed to the contact points Fußpunktimpedanzen the antenna structure (s) matched Verstarkerausgang required This is at the antenna optimum transmission power available

In the dependent claims, advantageous embodiments and refinements of the vehicle antenna device according to claim 1 are given

For the electrical connection of the high-frequency APPARATE to the contact points of the antenna structure (s) is a particularly simple and inexpensive to manufacture embodiment according to claim 2 in the direct connection of the GERAT eanschlusse with the contact points. The base must in this case have no contact but merely holding devices and is thus extremely inexpensive to produce as a simple injection molded part.

In claim 3, an alternative solution for the electrical connection of construction is given frequency device and antenna (s) which, although by the additional contacts in the socket-consuming, but provides a great variety of constructive design variants and possibilities of adapting to different spatial conditions.

By combining the contact point several printed on the vehicle window antenna structures, for example for several frequency ranges and / or for diversity reception in a size as small terminal box (claim 4) the already small per se silver printing tolerances are reduced even further. Above all, the contact points are not arranged as in the prior art according to DE 37 19 692 C2 to the entire vehicle window around, but at considerably lower cost to a relatively small area can be limited. Characterized the size of the base and thus minimizes the visibility impairment or the base can be arranged in an advantageous manner, for example under paneling of the vehicle.

It is particularly advantageous to realize the supply lines of the base points of the antenna structures planar lines by co to the contact points of the connecting box according to claim 5, because these are easy to prepare and have good electrical transmission data. Particularly inexpensive and precise, their manufacture lung together with the silver printing of the antenna structures (claim 7).

This also applies provided according to claim 6 marks, which enable a fast and accurately positioned mounting of the socket on the vehicle window, which in turn ensures an exact assignment of the contacts of the high-frequency APPARATE to the contact points and therefore a reliable contact.

For holding the high-frequency EXPOSED in the base a number of technical solutions is possible. Uncomplicated in construction and manufacturing execution is set forth in claim. 8

Here, the high-frequency device is pushed into the socket until the outwardly projecting lugs of the high-frequency APPARATE are fully inserted under the projections of the base frame.

Advantageously, the projections and lugs according to claim 9 are disposed at three corresponding sides of the base or of the high-frequency appliances such so that the high frequency device - in particular when the projections on each side of the frame are continuous - can be pushed as in a kind of pocket of the base.

This, however, is sufficient space on the order of insertion travel is required on the introduction page. In a preferred mounting of the socket in the edge region of the vehicle window but such space is not available in most cases. In this case it is more favorable that the projections on the sides and - are interrupted or in other words, that a plurality of projections are provided on each of the three sides - to save material also on the opposite side of the Einfuhrungsseite. The high-frequency device is first introduced in this advantageous embodiment, perpendicular to the surface of the base in these, wherein the lateral lugs of the high-frequency APPARATE between the lateral projections of the pedestal to slide through, and then to be inserted perpendicular to the stop in the base, wherein all lugs associated with the are protrusions. In the first assembly step, the high frequency device protrudes by only about, the depth of the projections on the introduction side, so that this embodiment is particularly suitable for mounting on disc edges due to the lower space requirement.

According to a further advantageous embodiment of the invention is provided to hold by means of a releasable locking bracket vibration-proof in the assembled state, the high frequency device (claim 10) particularly simple and cost both in terms of manufacture as well as the operator is a design of this locking device according to claim 11, the locking tongues with the locking cams are no additional costs for example in the injection molding process with the base together to manufacture the locking cams are shut printed in the socket upon insertion of the Hochfrequenzgerats and snap in the fully inserted Hochfrequenzgerat due to the spring action of the locking tabs back into their starting position, wherein they engage behind the housing of the high-frequency APPARATE to remove the high frequency APPARATE this is also to shut printing the locking cams readily be pulled out from the socket

The insertion of the Hochfrequenzgerats in the base is greatly facilitated by claim 12 provided for sliding project at the mutually facing end faces of the corresponding tabs and projections In many cases it is sufficient to sloping either the projections or only the noses In preparation of the base and the housing of the high-frequency APPARATE example however, the tabs and projections can be manufactured without additional costs with corresponding profiles in the injection molding process

The releasable electrical connection of the terminals of the high-frequency devices with the associated contact points of the antenna structures on the vehicle window is performed in a particularly advantageous embodiment of the inventive vehicle antenna device according to claim 13 by mounted on Hochfrequenzgerat contact springs These aware not only make a permanently secure contact, when required, without any effort is releasably, but print at the same time their noses through its spring force against the underside of the projections, which receive the spring force by suitable shaping and choice of material of the contact springs is tHEREFORE simple manner both a sufficient contact pressure and thus a ruttelsi- chere contacting as well as the avoid rattling Gerau's reach

A further possibility, the contact pressure of the contact springs on the Kontaktstel- len to increase without any additional effort, it is specified in claim 14 is effected in that the lugs and thus the attached to the Hochfrequenzgerat contact springs by the second sliding trolley for fully inserted into the socket Hochfrequenzgerat further be executed prints to the vehicle window principle, the contact springs may be mounted at any location of the base facing surface of the high-frequency appliances such they only need to exactly opposite the corresponding contact points of the antenna structures a particularly simple and thus accurate positioning is then achieved if the contact springs aligned in a line , for example between the advantages jumps on the wide side (contact side) are arranged in the base

An arched formation of the contact springs in its longitudinal direction, ie the direction of insertion, according to claim 15 effected in an advantageous manner not only a point-like and defined contact with high contact pressure, but also a gentle sliding of the silver printing of the contact points, which thus also in repeated pulling and inserting a high frequency APPARATE in or out of the socket from damage is safe If, ​​in alternative devices in addition to a displacement of the Hochfreuenzgerates and thus the contact springs in the longitudinal direction take place also in its transverse direction, so even a con- vexe curvature in this transverse direction is advantageous

The contact springs could from leitfahigem plastic in the form of plastic pads (due to their smaller length is the electric resistance yet sufficiently low) or consist of metal-coated plastic metal springs according demanding 16 have the advantage of higher stability or resistance to breakage, a greater potential contact prints, and better conductivity in addition, they are easier and less expensive than Stampings produced in any form

An embodiment of the contact spring according to claim 17 provides a suitable especially for the electrical connection of circuit boards and the holder in molded circuit boards realization represents Here, an embodiment according to claim 18 is characterized by a high mechanical stability and a large soldering surface for easy and reliable contact on the circuit board out.

For exact positioning of the flat spring arm on the board for soldering and if necessary, the pour-in or insert molding, it is particularly advantageous to provide the free end of the flat leg according to claim 19 having a bent extension which for mounting in an associated recess the circuit board is inserted.

As a protection against mechanical damage and weathering, it is advantageous to provide the high frequency device having a housing (claim 20). To safely prevent short circuits, this is of insulating material. Particularly cost is the production when the housing is in accordance with claim 21 of overmoulding or potting material as this, can be produced not only in a simple way in all possible forms, eg, at no extra cost with retaining tabs, no special holding means for injected parts, such as the contact springs needed and is particularly flat manufacture not least, whereby a hidden assembly in the form of parts of the vehicle such as the sky, the rear parcel shelf or the C-pillar trim is possible.

Another advantage of a plastic cast housing is that no extra cost in manufacturing additional devices, such as holding or guiding devices, such as molded Kabelaufhahmen leads for further antennas (such as cellular or GPS navigation antennas), can be integrated practical. This eliminates the need for additional elements for management and Haltefünktionen.

The high-frequency device is not linked to the size of the continental shelf in terms of its dimensions. Rather, it can with parts which have no contacts, protrude also readily over the base, if the holding force of the projections of the base engage behind noses sufficient. If this is not the case, for example, if a particularly high vibration security is required, as is an extension of the base of his connection to the field of the antenna structures associated connecting area further, according to claim 23 is advantageous. The lateral projections zelvorsprünge expediently as spaced inputs are adapted to be introduced between which the lateral lugs of the expanded portion of the high-frequency appliances such on the third side a continuous projection, however, can be provided.

The entire base can be constructed in several parts (but one piece), with the advantage that only a base for different unit sizes is required. The vehicle antenna device is therefore inexpensive and versatile. But above all, require device variants (single or multi-stage amplifier and passive circuits such as filters, matching circuits or remote feed devices, eg) by this Sockelausfuhrung no disc versions.

Provided for in claim 24 Mounting the base on the vehicle window is permanently safe, quickly, accurately and at considerably lower cost than ausfuhrbar solder joints.

Even relatively complex RF devices today are already manufactured with relatively small dimensions. Nevertheless, it is in the interest of maximum driving safety of advantage to position the socket according to claim 25 as possible at the wafer edge and, if at all possible, as already mentioned in the form of parts of the vehicle or according to claim 26 shall be placed in black print covered disk surfaces.

The intended for the reception of signals in different frequency ranges Vehicle antenna device consists of a manufactured as a plastic injection molding socket 1, an insertable therein high-frequency amplifier 2 and a size as minimized, top in the right corner region of a vehicle rear window 3 arranged terminal box 4, in which the more base points, only for box principle illustrated antenna structures are merged 5-10 in surface contact points 11 for contact with associated contact springs 12 of the high frequency amplifier. 2 The connecting lines of the contact points 11 with the Antennenfüßpunkten are sorted by length as a simple conduction paths 13-16 or coplanar lines 17, 18 formed and cost, together with the antenna structures 5-10, as well as Kontaktst rush 1 1 in silver pressure on the vehicle window 3 is applied. By bringing together all the antenna terminals only one amplifier is necessary in an advantageous manner, which may be also disposed at a non-interfering location on the vehicle window. 3

The base 1 consists of a rectangular frame having side frame members 19, 20, 21 and 22 and a einfuhrungsseitigen and a contact-side frame member 23 and 24. Between the side frame members 19 and 20 is the connection region 25 for the high-frequency amplifier 2, between the side frame parts 20 and 21 or 21 and 22 each have a extension portion 26 or 27. the lateral frame parts 19-22 each have two inwardly projecting Haltevor- to cracks 28, the contact-side frame member 24 has in the connection region 7 highlights holding 29 and in the extension portions 26, 27 each have a continuous retaining projection 30, 31. All holding projections 28 to 31 are spaced apart from the base floor.

On einfuhrungsseitigen frame part 23 resilient locking tongues 32 are formed, which terminate in locking cams 33 for securing the mounted high-frequency amplifier. 2

The high-frequency amplifier 2 consists of an electrical circuit components supporting circuit board 34, which is embedded in an injection-molded housing 35 which is suitably configured for installation in the base 1 and sized. It has on the two narrow sides two noses 36 and on the contact side in the connection region 25 on tabs 37 which correspond to the projections 29 of the frame part 24 of the pedestal. 1 are attached to the contact-side end face of the out of the terminal portion 25 of the housing portion 35, two with the projections 30, 31 of the extended sections 26, 27 of the base 1 cooperates through lugs 38, integrally formed. 39

Between the lugs 37 in the connection region 25, the contact springs 12 are arranged, which bear with a flat part 40 on the circuit board 34, are soldered to corresponding terminal points, and for mechanical fixing with an angled end extension 41 in a recess 42 of the circuit board 34 intervene. After casting, the contact springs 12 are mounted in the housing 35 stably secure and sufficient to accommodate the spring pressure at completion of contacting of. The downwardly from the housing 35 outstanding to-back curved spring member 43 is curved as contact legs longitudinally convex. To increase the stability of the contact springs, the flat spring member 40 is made wider than the curved contact leg 43rd

The assembly of the vehicle antenna device is extremely simple:

First, the base 1 on the basis of marks 44, which also as silver pressure already with the antenna structures 5-10, as well as the contact points 11 and the connecting lines are applied to the vehicle window 3 13-18, so position exactly above the terminal array 4 of the contact points on the vehicle window 3 Open glued, that in the mounted high-frequency amplifier, the contact springs 12 rest exactly on the associated contact points 1. 1

After the bonding of the high frequency amplifier 2 with lateral lugs 36 is inserted into the spaces between the lateral projections 28 of the base 1 into diesel sen perpendicular to the disk plane, wherein the detents are so pressed towards 33 through the housing bottom to the vehicle window 3, that then the high-frequency amplifier 2 can be pushed back to the stop in the direction of the contact-side frame member 24th The lugs 36-39 slide of the booster housing 35 under the korrespondieren- the projections 28-31 of the base 1 and in the fully inserted high-frequency amplifier, the latching cam 33 snap upwardly and engage behind the booster housing 35th

In this assembled position, the high-frequency amplifier 2 is thus held on all sides in the base. The lugs 36 to 39 have at their projections 28 to 31 on end faces facing sliding bevel 45 which facilitate the insertion of the booster housing 35 in the socket. 1

In inserting the high frequency amplifier 2 in the socket 1, the contact springs 12 are pressed together perpendicularly to the disk plane, so that their curved contact leg 43 after the sliding of 35 abut on the contact points 11 in the subsequent insertion of the booster housing under spring pressure on the contact points and establish a secure contact. At the same time, the opposing surfaces of the mating projections 28-31 and tabs 36-39 are pressed against each other by the pressure of the contact springs 12, thereby also the holding effect is increased.

This effect is further reinforced by a further bevel 46 of the tabs 36-39, which further press in the direction of the vehicle toward the disk 3 fully inserted into the base 1 booster housing 35th The underside of the projections 28-31 is adapted 45 and 46 of the described contour of the lobes 37-39 with two slopes.

The amplifier case 35 includes a fabricated in the injection molding in the same operation guiding and holding groove 47 for receiving a cable 48, which comes from a not members of the vehicle antenna device further non dargestell- th antenna, such as a GPS antenna and a navigation device is forwarded.

The receivers not shown to, for example, for broadcast reception and a remote control lock, leading miteingegossenen in the booster housing 35 output lines of the high-frequency amplifier 2 are here as flat cables 49 led off 50th

Overall, an inventive vehicle antenna device, the amplifier is provided having the described construction, in which the high-frequency device 2 is, however, a vibration-proof but mounted in an uncomplicated and inexpensive way without soldering detachably on the pane, a repair or the use of another high-frequency APPARATE no disc changes due to very is flat and thus suitable for mounting under the form of parts of the vehicle, only a high frequency device for a whole number of antenna structures is required and thereby minimal tolerances to be compensated at the same time and optimum electrical transmission data is achieved by the direct connection of the RF amplifier to the antenna structures.
