Description

The invention relates to an electronic flat key according to the features of The preamble of claim 1.

Such flat keys are known for example from DE 39 02 537 C2. you put essentially consists of a handle and a key bit, which Handle part comprises a housing and the key bit from a folded position, at which he is in a lateral recess of the handle part housing, in an unfolded Position is pivotally arranged on the handle part housing. The grip part housing in the known flat key consists of two interconnected bowl-shaped Side parts made of plastic, which an electronic circuit device for Enclose remote control of a lock or lock system. Besides, in that Handle part housing arranged a receptacle in which the batteries for power supply the electronic circuit device are housed. The admission borders on the Surface of one of the two bowl-shaped side parts and is through to the outside closed a sliding lid.

A disadvantage of these known flat keys is, among other things, that the side parts can not be made of metal, because an appropriate handle part housing an undesirable electrical shading of the transmit or located in the handle housing Receiving elements would take place. Often, however, for reasons of stability as well To adapt the flat key to the respective vehicle in terms of design Flat key with a metal handle housing is required.

Another disadvantage of the known keys is that the battery compartment is relatively easily accessible is and therefore it happens again and again that the sliding cover unintentionally is moved and the batteries can then fall out of the battery compartment.

The invention has for its object to provide an electronic flat key, in which the handle part housing consists of metallic shell-shaped side parts, without this having any significant influence (electrical shading) on the the housing located transmitting and / or receiving elements for remote operation of a Castle or lock system takes place.

This object is achieved by the features of claim 1. Further, particularly advantageous embodiments of the invention disclose the subclaims.

The invention is essentially based on the idea between the two made of metal existing bowl-shaped side parts of the handle part housing a frame-shaped to arrange the formed middle part made of an electrically non-conductive material, which edge at least in some areas of the handle part housing to the outer Surface of the housing is sufficient and for sufficient signal transmission between the in the handle housing and in the lock area or lock system area Sending and / or receiving elements is sufficient.

The frame-shaped central part can be made of plastic or rubber, for example and is preferably designed such that it is also used as a sealing element for sealing of the inner space of the handle part housing acts against external influences.

In order to avoid unintentional removal of the battery cover, another is Embodiment of the invention provided that that located in the handle housing Battery compartment holder on the inside to the recess for receiving the key bit connects, so that the batteries only in the extended position of the key bit the receptacle can be inserted or removed from it.

For a quick assembly of the batteries, it has proven to be advantageous if the batteries be placed in a separate battery compartment before inserting it into the battery compartment holder and then the battery compartment, possibly equipped with several batteries, into the Slide and with this e.g. is connected via a clip connection.

To make a simple assembly or disassembly of the flat key according to the invention To be able to, it has also proven to be useful if at least one side part has projections in predetermined edge regions which protrude beyond the central part and by means of which this side part can be clipped to the other side part.

Further details and advantages of the invention result from the following exemplary embodiment explained with reference to figures. Show it:

  • Fig. 1 is an exploded view of a flat key according to the invention with the key bit and
  • 2 shows a perspective view of the flat key shown in FIG. 1 in the assembled state.
  • 1 and 2, 1 denotes an electronic flat key, which is essentially consists of a handle part 2 and a key bit 3. The handle part 2 includes a Housing 4 with two shell-shaped side parts 5, 6 which can be clipped together from one Light metal (e.g. aluminum). There is a frame-shaped between the side parts 5, 6 formed middle part 7 made of plastic, which in parts 8 of the handle part housing 4 extends to the outer surface 9 of the housing.

    The key bit 3 is rotatably supported in the handle part housing 4 and by a folded one pivotable into an extended position. In the folded position it is in a lateral recess 10 of the handle part housing 4 and is in this Position held by locking means. By pressing a spring-loaded push button 11 is the key bit 3 by a torsion spring in its unfolded position panned.

    The grip part housing 4 encloses an electronic circuit device 12 (e.g. one Transponder) for remote operation of a vehicle lock, not shown. The electronic Circuit device 12 can be arranged on a circuit board which in the is arranged essentially within a recess 13 of the central part 7. To activate the circuit device 12 is connected to a push button 14 which is slidably mounted in a recess 15 of the side part 5.

    In the handle part housing 4 there is also a battery compartment receptacle 16, which is located on the inside connects to the recess 10 for receiving the key bit 3 and therefore is only accessible in the unfolded position of the key bit. Only in this position can therefore be inserted or removed a battery compartment 18, which the for operation of the electronic circuit device 12 contains batteries 17 required.

    To connect the two side parts 5, 6, the side part 5 has 19 projections in edge regions 20, which protrude above the central part 7 and by means of which this side part with the side part 6 is clipped.

    Of course, the invention is not based on the embodiment described above limited. So the side parts of the handle part housing instead of a clip connection can also be connected by a screw connection. 1 is a corresponding one Shown screw and provided with the reference numeral 21.

    The material for the shell-shaped side parts can be a light metal instead of a Light metal alloy also another metal (steel, titanium etc.) or an outside metallized Plastic are used.
