Description

本発明は、主に自動車のブレーキペダル操作時の、ストップランプの消点灯制御等に用いられる車両用の保持部材、及びこれを用いたスイッチ装置に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a holding member for a vehicle used mainly for control of extinction of a stop lamp when a brake pedal of an automobile is operated, and a switch device using the same.

近年、ブレーキペダルを踏み込んだ際にはストップランプを点灯させ、離した際には消灯させる、ブレーキペダルの操作に伴うストップランプの制御用として、スイッチを保持部材によってブレーキペダルの近傍に装着した、様々なスイッチ装置が使用されている。   In recent years, a switch is mounted in the vicinity of the brake pedal by a holding member for controlling the stop lamp accompanying the operation of the brake pedal, turning on the stop lamp when depressing the brake pedal and turning it off when released. Various switch devices are used.

このような従来の保持部材やスイッチ装置について、図5及び図6を用いて説明する。   Such conventional holding members and switch devices will be described with reference to FIGS.

図5は従来のスイッチ装置の斜視図であり、同図において、1は保持部材で、略半円筒状で絶縁樹脂製の二つの保持体1Aと1Bが、圧入等によって固着されて形成されている。   FIG. 5 is a perspective view of a conventional switch device. In FIG. 5, reference numeral 1 denotes a holding member, which is formed by fixing two holding bodies 1A and 1B made of an insulating resin in a substantially semi-cylindrical shape by press-fitting or the like. Yes.

そして、保持部材1側壁に形成された略コの字状のスリットによって、弾性変形可能な一対のアーム部1Cが設けられると共に、中央の挿通孔1D内周のアーム部1Cの根元には、内方へ対向して突出する一対の係合突起1Eが形成されている。   A pair of elastically deformable arm portions 1C are provided by substantially U-shaped slits formed on the side wall of the holding member 1, and at the root of the arm portion 1C on the inner periphery of the central insertion hole 1D, A pair of engaging protrusions 1E that protrudes in the opposite direction is formed.

また、2はスイッチで、略箱型で絶縁樹脂製のケース2A下方には円筒部2Bが設けられると共に、この円筒部2B外周には、略鋸歯状で一対の複数の凹凸部2Cが所定間隔で形成されている。   Reference numeral 2 denotes a switch, and a cylindrical portion 2B is provided below the substantially box-shaped insulating resin case 2A, and a plurality of concave and convex portions 2C having a substantially serrated shape are provided on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 2B at a predetermined interval. It is formed with.

さらに、ケース2Aの円筒部2B内には磁石(図示せず)と、これに所定の間隙を空けて対向配置された、ホールIC等の磁気検出手段(図示せず)が収納されると共に、磁気検出手段に接続された複数の端子(図示せず)が、角筒部2D内に延出している。   Further, in the cylindrical portion 2B of the case 2A, a magnet (not shown) and a magnetic detection means (not shown) such as a Hall IC, which are disposed facing each other with a predetermined gap, are housed. A plurality of terminals (not shown) connected to the magnetic detection means extend into the rectangular tube portion 2D.

また、このスイッチ2の円筒部2Bが保持部材1の挿通孔1D内に挿入されると共に、円筒部2B外周の複数の凹凸部2Cが、保持部材1の挿通孔1D内周の係合突起1Eに当接して、スイッチ装置が構成される。   Further, the cylindrical portion 2B of the switch 2 is inserted into the insertion hole 1D of the holding member 1, and a plurality of concave and convex portions 2C on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 2B are engaged protrusions 1E on the inner periphery of the insertion hole 1D of the holding member 1. The switch device is configured in contact with the switch.

そして、このように構成されたスイッチ装置が、図6の斜視図に示すように、自動車のブレーキペダル5近傍のシャーシ6の貫通孔内に、先ず保持部材1が一対のアーム部1Cを弾性変形させて固着された後、この保持部材1の挿通孔1D内にスイッチ2の円筒部2Bが、複数の凹凸部2Cを係合突起1Eに弾接させて、ケース2A下面が保持部材1上面に当接するまで挿入される。   Then, as shown in the perspective view of FIG. 6, the switch device configured in this manner first elastically deforms the pair of arm portions 1C in the through hole of the chassis 6 near the brake pedal 5 of the automobile. After being fixed, the cylindrical portion 2B of the switch 2 elastically contacts the engaging projections 1E with the cylindrical portion 2B of the switch 2 in the insertion hole 1D of the holding member 1, and the lower surface of the case 2A is on the upper surface of the holding member 1 It is inserted until it abuts.

さらに、この後、保持部材1下面から突出した円筒部2B下面を、ブレーキペダル5に固着された磁性体7上面で押圧しながら、ブレーキペダル5を所定位置に戻すと、円筒部2Bが挿通孔1D内を上方へ移動し、係合突起1Eが所定の凹凸部2Cに当接して、円筒部2B内の磁石が磁性体7に、所定の間隔を空けて対向した状態で位置決めされて、スイッチ2が保持部材1に装着される。   Further, when the brake pedal 5 is returned to a predetermined position while pressing the lower surface of the cylindrical portion 2B protruding from the lower surface of the holding member 1 with the upper surface of the magnetic body 7 fixed to the brake pedal 5, the cylindrical portion 2B is inserted into the insertion hole. 1D is moved upward, the engagement protrusion 1E comes into contact with the predetermined concavo-convex portion 2C, and the magnet in the cylindrical portion 2B is positioned in a state of facing the magnetic body 7 with a predetermined interval, and the switch 2 is attached to the holding member 1.

また、角筒部2D内に延出し磁気検出手段に接続された複数の端子が、コネクタやリード線(図示せず)等によって、車両のストップランプや電子回路(図示せず)等に電気的に接続される。   In addition, a plurality of terminals extending into the rectangular tube portion 2D and connected to the magnetic detection means are electrically connected to a vehicle stop lamp, an electronic circuit (not shown), or the like by a connector or a lead wire (not shown). Connected to.

なお、このようにブレーキペダル5が踏み込まれていない所定位置の状態では、円筒部2B内の磁石が磁性体7に近接し、磁石の磁気が強くなっているため、この磁界の磁力を磁気検出手段が検出して、ストップランプは消灯した状態となっている。   In the state of the predetermined position where the brake pedal 5 is not depressed in this way, the magnet in the cylindrical portion 2B is close to the magnetic body 7, and the magnetism of the magnet is strong. The stop lamp is turned off when the means detects.

以上の構成において、ブレーキペダル5を踏み込むと、ブレーキペダル5が回動軸5Aを支点として回動し、磁性体7がスイッチ2から離れるため、円筒部2B内の磁石の磁気が弱くなり、この磁界の磁力を磁気検出手段が検出して、磁気の変化が所定の値以下になると、ストップランプが点灯する。   In the above configuration, when the brake pedal 5 is depressed, the brake pedal 5 rotates about the rotation shaft 5A and the magnetic body 7 is separated from the switch 2, so that the magnetism of the magnet in the cylindrical portion 2B is weakened. When the magnetism detecting means detects the magnetic force of the magnetic field and the change in magnetism becomes a predetermined value or less, the stop lamp is turned on.

つまり、ブレーキペダル5の踏み込み操作によって、スイッチ2の磁石に対向した磁性体7を接近、あるいは離す方向に移動させると共に、この移動に伴って磁気検出素子が検出する磁石の磁気の変化に応じて、ストップランプの消点灯が行われるように構成されているものであった。   That is, by depressing the brake pedal 5, the magnetic body 7 facing the magnet of the switch 2 is moved toward or away from the magnet, and the magnetism detection element detects a change in magnetism detected by the movement. The stop lamp is turned off and on.

しかしながら、上記従来のスイッチ装置においては、円筒部2B外周の凹凸部2Cを、挿通孔1D内周の一つの係合突起1Eに当接させて、スイッチ2の保持部材1への位置決めを行っているため、複数の凹凸部2Cの間隔分の精度でしかスイッチ2を、保持部材1に保持することができず、円筒部2B内の磁石と磁性体7の間隙にばらつきが生じ易くなってしまうという課題があった。   However, in the above conventional switch device, the concave and convex portion 2C on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 2B is brought into contact with one engagement protrusion 1E on the inner periphery of the insertion hole 1D to position the switch 2 on the holding member 1. Therefore, the switch 2 can be held by the holding member 1 only with an accuracy corresponding to the interval between the plurality of concave and convex portions 2C, and the gap between the magnet and the magnetic body 7 in the cylindrical portion 2B is likely to vary. There was a problem.

The switch device is configured by engaging the threaded portion on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion of the switch and fitting the plurality of convex portions and concave portions on the outer periphery of the holding body and the outer periphery of the rotating body. The switch is held to the holding member with high accuracy because the switch is held on the holding member by engaging the peripheral threaded parts and fitting multiple convex parts and concave parts formed at predetermined intervals. It is possible to obtain a holding member capable of various operations and a switch device using the holding member.

以上のように、本発明によれば、精度よくスイッチの保持が行え、確実な操作が可能な保持部材、及びこれを用いたスイッチ装置を実現することができるという有利な効果が得られる。   As described above, according to the present invention, it is possible to obtain an advantageous effect that it is possible to realize a holding member that can hold a switch with high accuracy and can be reliably operated, and a switch device using the holding member.

そして、16は略半円柱状または略角柱状でフェライトやNd−Fe−B合金等の磁石で、中央部に開口溝部16Aが形成され、上下面がN極とS極で、磁気方向が上下方向に形成された磁石16が、ケース15の円筒部15A内底面に装着されている。   Reference numeral 16 denotes a substantially semi-cylindrical or substantially prismatic magnet, such as a ferrite or Nd-Fe-B alloy, with an opening groove 16A formed in the center, the top and bottom surfaces being N and S poles, and the magnetic direction being up and down.

さらに、19は略L字状で銅合金等の端子、20は絶縁樹脂製のカバーで、複数の端子19の下端が半田付け等によって配線基板17に実装されて、磁気検出手段18に配線パターンを介して電気的に接続されると共に、カバー20がケース15上面を覆い、複数の端子19の上端が上面の角筒部20A内に延出して、スイッチ14が構成されている。   Further, 19 is a substantially L-shaped terminal made of copper alloy or the like, 20 is a cover made of insulating resin, and the lower ends of the plurality of terminals 19 are mounted on the wiring board 17 by soldering or the like. The cover 20 covers the upper surface of the case 15, and the upper ends of the plurality of terminals 19 extend into the rectangular tube portion 20 </ b> A on the upper surface to constitute the switch 14.

また、このスイッチ14の円筒部15Aが保持部材13の挿通孔13A内に挿入されると共に、一対の窪部15Cに突起部11Fが挿入され、円筒部15A外周のねじ部15Bが回転体12内周のねじ部12Cに噛合し、保持体11内周の複数の凸部11Eが回転体12外周の複数の凹部12Eに嵌合して、スイッチ装置が構成される。   In addition, the cylindrical portion 15A of the switch 14 is inserted into the insertion hole 13A of the holding member 13, and the protruding portion 11F is inserted into the pair of recess portions 15C, and the screw portion 15B on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A is in the rotating body 12. The switch device is configured by meshing with the peripheral threaded portion 12C and the plurality of convex portions 11E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 being fitted into the plurality of concave portions 12E on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12.

そして、このように構成されたスイッチ装置が、図4の斜視図に示すように、自動車のブレーキペダル21近傍のシャーシ22に、円筒部15A内の磁石16がブレーキペダル21に固着された鉄等の磁性体23に、所定の間隙を空けて対向するように装着されると共に、複数の端子19の上端がリード線やコネクタ(図示せず)等によって、車両のストップランプや電子回路(図示せず)等に電気的に接続される。   And the switch apparatus comprised in this way is shown in the perspective view of FIG. 4, The iron etc. with which the magnet 16 in the cylindrical part 15A was fixed to the brake pedal 21 to the chassis 22 near the brake pedal 21 of a motor vehicle. Are mounted so as to face each other with a predetermined gap therebetween, and the upper ends of the plurality of terminals 19 are connected to a vehicle stop lamp or an electronic circuit (not shown) by lead wires, connectors (not shown) or the like. Etc.) etc.

なお、このようにスイッチ装置をブレーキペダル21近傍のシャーシ22に装着するには、先ず、シャーシ22の貫通孔内に保持部材13を、保持体11の一対の爪部11Cを弾性変形させて固着した後、この保持部材13の挿通孔13A内にスイッチ14の円筒部15Aを挿入し、シャーシ22と磁性体23の間の回転体12を回転しながら、円筒部15A外周のねじ部15Bを、回転体12内周のねじ部12Cに噛合させる。   In order to mount the switch device on the chassis 22 in the vicinity of the brake pedal 21 as described above, first, the holding member 13 is fixed in the through hole of the chassis 22 and the pair of claw portions 11C of the holding body 11 are elastically deformed and fixed. After that, the cylindrical portion 15A of the switch 14 is inserted into the insertion hole 13A of the holding member 13, and the screw portion 15B on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A is rotated while rotating the rotating body 12 between the chassis 22 and the magnetic body 23. Engage with the screw portion 12C on the inner periphery of the rotating body 12.

そして、このまま回転体12を例えば時計方向へ回転すると、ねじ部15Bがねじ部12Cに噛合したスイッチ14が、一対の突起部11Fに窪部15Cをガイドされながら、挿通孔13A内を例えば下方向へ移動して、円筒部15A下端が磁性体23上面に接近し、回転体12を所定回数回転すると、円筒部15A下端が磁性体23上面に当接して、円筒部15A内の磁石16が磁性体23に、所定の間隙を空けて対向した状態となる。   Then, when the rotating body 12 is rotated, for example, in the clockwise direction, the switch 14 in which the screw portion 15B is engaged with the screw portion 12C is guided, for example, downward in the insertion hole 13A while the recess portion 15C is guided by the pair of protrusion portions 11F. When the lower end of the cylindrical portion 15A approaches the upper surface of the magnetic body 23 and the rotating body 12 is rotated a predetermined number of times, the lower end of the cylindrical portion 15A comes into contact with the upper surface of the magnetic body 23 and the magnet 16 in the cylindrical portion 15A is magnetic. The body 23 is opposed to the body 23 with a predetermined gap.

なお、回転体12を回しすぎた場合には、回転体12を上記とは逆方向に、例えば反時計方向へ回転して、スイッチ14を上方向へ移動させて、スイッチ14を所定位置に位置決めする。   If the rotating body 12 is turned too much, the rotating body 12 is rotated in the opposite direction, for example, counterclockwise, and the switch 14 is moved upward to position the switch 14 at a predetermined position. To do.

さらに、この時、回転体12の回転に伴って、回転体12外周の溝部12Dに所定間隔で形成された複数の凹部12Eが、保持体11内周の壁部11Dの複数の凸部11Eに順次嵌合して、スイッチ14が保持部材13に精度よく位置決めされると共に、所定位置に確実に保持が行われる。   Further, at this time, as the rotating body 12 rotates, a plurality of concave portions 12E formed at predetermined intervals in the groove portion 12D on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12 are formed on the plurality of convex portions 11E on the inner peripheral wall portion 11D. The switches 14 are sequentially fitted so that the switch 14 is accurately positioned on the holding member 13 and is securely held at a predetermined position.

つまり、スイッチ14のねじ部15Bと回転体12のねじ部12Cの、ねじ山の間隔を例えば1.5mmに形成し、回転体12外周の複数の凹部12Eを、例えば36度間隔で10個設けた場合、回転体12の1回転によってスイッチ14は1.5mm下方向へ移動するが、この間、36度間隔で10個の凹部12Eに保持体11内周の凸部11Eが順次嵌合するため、1.5mm移動する間に10分の1間隔で、すなわち0.15mm刻みでスイッチ14の位置決めを行うことができるようになっている。   That is, the screw thread 15B of the switch 14 and the screw thread 12C of the rotating body 12 are formed with a thread interval of, for example, 1.5 mm, and a plurality of recesses 12E on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12 are provided, for example, at intervals of 36 degrees. In this case, the switch 14 moves 1.5 mm downward by one rotation of the rotating body 12, but during this time, the convex portions 11E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 are sequentially fitted into the ten concave portions 12E at intervals of 36 degrees. The switch 14 can be positioned at intervals of 1/10 while moving 1.5 mm, that is, in increments of 0.15 mm.

また、回転体12外周の複数の凹部12Eに対し、保持体11内周の凸部11Eも複数個設け、この複数の凹部12Eと複数の凸部11Eを嵌合させて、スイッチ14を所定位置に位置決めすることで、多少の力が加わった場合でも、スイッチ14と保持部材13の位置ずれを防ぎ、確実な保持が行えるようになっている。   Further, a plurality of convex portions 11E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 are also provided with respect to the plurality of concave portions 12E on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12, and the plurality of concave portions 12E and the plurality of convex portions 11E are fitted so that the switch 14 is positioned at a predetermined position. Thus, even when a slight force is applied, the switch 14 and the holding member 13 are prevented from being displaced and can be reliably held.

なお、このようにブレーキペダル21が踏み込まれていない所定位置の状態では、円筒部15A内の磁石16が磁性体23に近接し、磁石16の磁気が強くなっているため、この磁界の磁力を磁気検出手段18が検出して、端子19に接続されたストップランプは消灯した状態となっている。   In the state where the brake pedal 21 is not depressed in this way, the magnet 16 in the cylindrical portion 15A is close to the magnetic body 23, and the magnet 16 has a strong magnetism. The stop lamp connected to the terminal 19 is turned off as detected by the magnetic detection means 18.

以上の構成において、ブレーキペダル21を踏み込むと、ブレーキペダル21が回動軸21Aを支点として回動し、磁性体23がスイッチ14から離れるため、円筒部15A内の磁石16の磁気が弱くなり、この磁界の磁力を磁気検出手段18が検出して、磁気の変化が所定の値以下になると、ストップランプが点灯する。   In the above configuration, when the brake pedal 21 is depressed, the brake pedal 21 rotates about the rotation shaft 21A and the magnetic body 23 separates from the switch 14, so that the magnet 16 in the cylindrical portion 15A becomes weaker, When the magnetic detection means 18 detects the magnetic force of the magnetic field and the change in magnetism becomes a predetermined value or less, the stop lamp is turned on.

つまり、ブレーキペダル21の踏み込み操作によって、スイッチ14の磁石16に対向した磁性体23を接近、あるいは離す方向に移動させると共に、この移動に伴って磁気検出手段18が検出する磁石16の磁気の変化に応じて、ストップランプの消点灯が行われるように構成されている。   That is, by depressing the brake pedal 21, the magnetic body 23 facing the magnet 16 of the switch 14 is moved in the direction of approaching or separating, and the magnetic change of the magnet 16 detected by the magnetism detecting means 18 along with this movement. Accordingly, the stop lamp is turned off and on.

そして、本発明においては、保持体11下方に回転可能に装着された回転体12内周のねじ部12Cに、スイッチ14の円筒部15A外周のねじ部15Bを噛合させると共に、保持体11内周の複数の凸部11Eと回転体12外周の複数の凹部12Eを嵌合させることによって、スイッチ14を保持部材13に精度よく位置決めできると共に、所定位置に確実に保持することが可能なようになっている。   In the present invention, the screw portion 15B on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A of the switch 14 is meshed with the screw portion 12C on the inner periphery of the rotating body 12 that is rotatably mounted below the holding body 11, and the inner periphery of the holding body 11 By fitting the plurality of convex portions 11E with the plurality of concave portions 12E on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12, the switch 14 can be accurately positioned on the holding member 13 and can be securely held at a predetermined position. ing.

すなわち、上述したように、シャーシ22に保持部材13を固着した後、この挿通孔13A内にスイッチ14の円筒部15Aを挿入し、回転体12を回転して、ねじ部12Cに円筒部15A外周のねじ部15Bを噛合させることによって、回転体12を回転するだけでスイッチ14を上下動させて、簡易に位置決めが行えると共に、スイッチ14に多少の力が加わった場合でも、スイッチ14が上下方向に位置ずれしないように構成されている。   That is, as described above, after fixing the holding member 13 to the chassis 22, the cylindrical portion 15A of the switch 14 is inserted into the insertion hole 13A, the rotating body 12 is rotated, and the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A is connected to the screw portion 12C. By engaging the screw portion 15B, the switch 14 can be moved up and down simply by rotating the rotating body 12, and positioning can be performed easily. Even when some force is applied to the switch 14, the switch 14 is moved in the vertical direction. It is configured not to be displaced.

さらに、この時、回転体12外周の複数の凹部12Eを、保持体11内周の凸部11Eに嵌合することで、回転体12を1回転する間に、複数の凹部12Eの数で除した間隔で、スイッチ14の高精度な位置決めを行うことができるようになっている。   Further, at this time, the plurality of recesses 12E on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12 are fitted to the protrusions 11E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11, so that the number of the plurality of recesses 12E is divided during one rotation of the rotating body 12. The switch 14 can be positioned with high accuracy at the intervals.

また、保持体11内周に複数の凸部11Eを設け、この複数の凸部11Eを複数の凹部12Eに嵌合させることによって、スイッチ14の保持力を高め、誤って多少の力が加わった場合でも、スイッチ14と保持部材13の位置ずれを防ぎ、確実な保持が行えるように構成されている。   Further, by providing a plurality of convex portions 11E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 and fitting the plurality of convex portions 11E to the plurality of concave portions 12E, the holding force of the switch 14 is increased, and some force is applied by mistake. Even in such a case, the switch 14 and the holding member 13 are prevented from being displaced and can be reliably held.

なお、以上の説明では、保持体11内周の壁部11Dに複数の凸部11Eを、回転体12外周の溝部12Dに複数の凹部12Eを設けた構成について説明したが、これとは逆に、保持体11内周に複数の凹部を、回転体12外周に複数の凸部を設けた構成としても、本発明の実施は可能である。   In the above description, the configuration in which the plurality of convex portions 11E are provided in the wall portion 11D on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 and the plurality of concave portions 12E in the groove portion 12D on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12 has been described. The present invention can also be implemented with a configuration in which a plurality of concave portions are provided on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 and a plurality of convex portions are provided on the outer periphery of the rotating body 12.

このように本実施の形態によれば、略中空筒状の保持体11と、この下方に回転可能に装着された略中空筒状の回転体12から保持部材13を形成し、この回転体12内周のねじ部12Cに、スイッチ14の円筒部15A外周のねじ部15Bを噛合させると共に、保持体11内周と回転体12外周の、複数の凸部11Eと凹部12Eを嵌合させることによって、円筒部15A外周と回転体12内周のねじ部15Bと12Cが噛合すると共に、所定間隔で形成された複数の凸部11Eと凹部12Eが嵌合して、保持部材13へのスイッチ14の保持が行われているため、位置ずれなく、精度よくスイッチの保持が行え、確実な操作が可能な保持部材、及びこれを用いたスイッチ装置を得ることができるものである。   As described above, according to the present embodiment, the holding member 13 is formed from the substantially hollow cylindrical holding body 11 and the substantially hollow cylindrical rotating body 12 rotatably mounted below the holding body 13. By engaging the screw portion 15B on the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A of the switch 14 with the screw portion 12C on the inner periphery, and fitting the plurality of convex portions 11E and the concave portions 12E on the inner periphery of the holding body 11 and the outer periphery of the rotating body 12 The outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 15A and the screw portions 15B and 12C on the inner periphery of the rotating body 12 are engaged with each other, and a plurality of convex portions 11E and concave portions 12E formed at predetermined intervals are fitted to each other. Since the holding is performed, it is possible to obtain a holding member that can hold the switch with high accuracy without misalignment and can be reliably operated, and a switch device using the holding member.

本発明による保持部材及びこれを用いたスイッチ装置は、精度よくスイッチの保持が行え、確実な操作が可能なものを得ることができるという有利な効果を有し、主に自動車のストップランプの消点灯制御用として有用である。   The holding member according to the present invention and the switch device using the same have the advantageous effect of being able to hold the switch with high accuracy and obtaining a device that can be reliably operated. This is useful for lighting control.
