Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0902503A1] Contact elements are formed as a continuous strip metal pressing (2) that supports pairs of contact fingers (15) that can be separated at a later point. One of the fingers in each pair is set at an angle and this is joined by a bridging section (19) to the other. This finger is then bent through 90 degrees such that the tips press against each other. Blade contacts are inserted between the fingers.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft ein einstückiges Steckkontaktelement mit einer flachen Kontaktzunge und einem flachen Gegenfinger, die in einem Basisbereich über einen Anbindungssteg miteinander in Querverbindung stehen, wobei durch Abbiegen entlang einer Biegelinie die Breitseite der Kontaktzunge senkrecht zur Breitseite des Gegenfingers zur Bildung einer Kontaktstelle angeordnet ist, wobei die Kontaktzunge mit einem Zungenbasisbereich an den Anbindungssteg angebunden ist und an ihrem, dem Zungenbasisbereich gegenüberliegenden freien Ende einen Zungenkontaktbereich aufweist, die Biegelinie mit einer Längsachse der Längserstreckung des Gegenfingers einen in Richtung der freien Enden der Kontaktzunge und der Längserstreckung des Gegenfingers sich öffnenden Winkel einschließt, und der Zungenkontaktbereich bezüglich des Kontaktbereichs bezüglich des Zungenbasisbereichs seitlich versetzt (Versatz b) in Richtung zur Kontaktstelle angeordnet ist. <IMAGE>
