Abstract (en)

[origin: JPH09147719A] PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To manufacture individual relays and also double relays with the smallest number of component members, make the structure of the relays suitable especially for automated manufacturing, and make completed relays which properly switch high electric current without causing any trouble. SOLUTION: A spring supporting body 17 is fixed in a base in a region by the side of at least one fixed contact supporting body 14 and in the front of an end part of a movable contact pole 14. Moreover, a contact spring 41 holds an engaged end part of the contact pole 4 in an end part portion, is divided into at least two leg parts positioned up and down, that is at least one connection leg part 44 and at least one contact leg part 43, like a fork in the direction toward the movable end part of the contact pole 4, the connection leg part 44 is connected with the supporting body 17, and the contact leg part 43 supports the movable contact.
