Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9303517A1] A flexible conductive track (1), comprises a flexible insulative plastics housing (2) of constant cross section. This housing is substantially rectangular in shape with three recesses (3) open to one side of the housing. A conductor (4) in the form of a copper wire is held in the bottom of each recess. Affixed to the wire (4) along the whole length of the wire is a conductive blade (5) which is conductively bonded to the wire (4) to form a double spring blade contact (5). A recess (16) is located on the other side of the housing (2). When the track (1) is bent laterally the recess (16 and 3) collapse to assist in the bending.
