Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0953999A2] The device is used to adjust the distance between a first stationary contact and a second contact (1) which is movable relative to the first by at least the usual contact spacing for actuation. The second contact (1) is held in a movable component (2) so as to be axially movable at first. It is then permanently fixed in the movable component (2) when the movable component (2) is moved from a rest position by the predetermined contact distance to an operating position at the first contact. Preferably the second contact has a polygonal cross section and is held in a matching polygonal recess in the movable component (2). By rotation about the longitudinal axis under plastic deformation of the contact and/or the component, the contact can then be axially fixed in the component.
