Abstract:
(DE) Bedienelement mit einer frei programmierbaren Symbolik für ein Kraftfahrzeug, aufweisend eine bewegbar in einem Gehäuse aufgenommene, transparente Tastenkappe, eine im Bedienelement angeordnete Lichtquelle, ein Mittel zur Parallelisierung des von der Lichtquelle emittierten Lichts und ein vom parallelisierten Licht durchleuchtbares, programmierbares Anzeigeelement, wobei das Anzeigeelement derart hinter der Tastenkappe angeordnet ist, dass die vom Anzeigeelement dargestellte Symbolik auf die Tastenkappe projiziert wird, wobei das Mittel zu Parallelisierung des Lichts als Hohlspiegel ausgestaltet ist und dass die Lichtquelle zwischen dem Anzeigemittel und dem Hohlspiegel angeordnet ist.
(EN) Disclosed is an operator's element for a motor vehicle, comprising freely programmable symbols, a transparent key cap that is movably accommodated in a housing, a light source located in the operator's element, a means for paralleling the light emitted by the light source, and a programmable display element which can be transilluminated by the paralleled light. The display element is disposed behind the key cap in such a way that the symbols represented by the display element are projected onto the key cap. The light paralleling means is embodied as a hollow mirror while the light source is placed between the display means and the hollow mirror.
(FR) L'invention concerne un élément de commande à symbole programmable destiné à un véhicule automobile. Cet élément de commande comprend un dessus de touche transparent monté mobile dans un boîtier, une source de lumière disposée dans l'élément de commande, un moyen pour rendre parallèle la lumière émise par la source de lumière et un élément d'affichage programmable à travers lequel la lumière parallèle peut passer. Selon l'invention, l'élément d'affichage est disposé à l'arrière du dessus de touche de sorte que le symbole représenté par l'élément d'affichage soit projeté sur le dessus de touche, le moyen pour rendre parallèle la lumière se présente sous la forme d'un réflecteur de concentration et la source de lumière est placée entre le moyen d'affichage et ce réflecteur de concentration.
