Abstract (en)

[origin: DE4405222C1] The relay, which has an armature and at least one moving contact element, has a slide (12) whose effective length is matched individually to the actual distance, governed by manufacturing tolerances, between the armature (9) and the moving contact element (8). For this purpose, the functional elements of the relay are initially ready-installed without a slide; after this, the actual distance between the armature (9) and the respective moving contact element (8) is measured. The slide (12) is cut to the required length (D + d) and is then installed corresponding to this measured distance (D) and, if necessary, to an additional, predetermined, overtravel (d). <IMAGE>
