Abstract

Device for illuminating the dashboard of a vehicle, the invention relates to a device for illuminating a dashboard of a vehicle, in particular a rail-mounted vehicle. The invention provides for the dashboard to be delimited at the top by a strip of luminaires, whose luminaires are aligned towards the dashboard.

Description

Device for lighting the driver's desk of a vehicle

The invention relates to a device for illuminating the driver's desk of a vehicle, in particular a rail ¬ vehicle.

The driver's desk of a vehicle is located between the driver's seat and the windshield and has display and Be ¬ dienelemente on. In the dark, it is necessary that the driver's desk is illuminated. Previously standard lamps meant that the driver's shadow fell on the driver's desk and that in addition reflections of light in the windscreen disturbed the driver. It has already tried this after ¬ parts to fix by the driver's desk was illuminated with special lights that emit highly directional light, so that gets little light to the windscreen and reflectors advantage there ¬. The direction of incidence of the light has already been chosen so that the shadow of the driver does not fall on the driver's desk if possible. Such a lighting device is energetically unfavorable because of the required high light intensity. This also means that such lamps are ver ¬ schleißanfällig leads.

The invention has for its object to provide a device for lighting a driver's desk of a vehicle to ¬ the energetically favorable allows good illumination of the driver's desk and still avoid shadows on the driver's desk and light reflections on the windscreen ¬ det.

The object is achieved according to the invention in that the driver's desk is limited upwards by a light strip whose lights are aligned to the driver's desk.

Because the lighting strip is spooled is in the vicinity of the driver ¬, no shadow on the driver's console can wrong len. It is also beneficial not to reflect light in the windscreen, since the lights of the light strip are aligned to Fah ¬ rerpult out. Finally, a uniform ¬ illumination of the driver's desk is achieved. All these advantages mean that the driver in the dark can see all on ¬ display and controls the driver's desk well and is not disturbed by stray light.

The lighting strip is formed for example by LEDs, which are arranged on a band-shaped structure. LEDs are energetically particularly favorable to operate and still give off a sufficiently bright light. It is therefore the advantage he ¬ aims that for the lighting of the driver's desk less energy than previously needed.

For example, the lighting strip is arranged on the underside of a sun visor, which protrudes ¬ rich starting from the upper edge of the driver's console starting from the windshield of the vehicle. Such a sun visor is used to avoid light reflections on the display and control elements of the driver's desk in daylight. Thanks to the sun visor, the display and operating elements remain shaded even in bright daylight and are thus easier to recognize. This sun visor advantageously offers on its underside a suitable space for the light strip, which is used for even illumination of the display and control elements at night. It is advantageous no special support for the luminaire ¬ band required.

With the device for lighting a driver's desk according to the invention, a good illumination is advantageously ensured without disturbing effects.
