Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19804669A1] The invention relates to a contact element, especially for electrically contacting a sensor element of a gas detector. At least one connecting conductor which is guided in a metal-sheathed cable is contacted by at least one flexible connecting line, and a connecting point is arranged in a contact housing between the at least one connecting conductor and the at least one connecting line. The contact housing enables a tight and temperature-resistant contacting. The invention provides that the contact housing (62) comprises at least one connecting element (35) which is firmly connected to the at least one connecting line (20, 22) and which can be contacted by the at least one connecting line (8, 10). The at least one connecting element (35) is arranged in the contact housing (62) in a non-positive and positive manner. A temperature-resistant protective sleeve (90) encases the contact housing (62). Said sleeve is directly connected to the metal-sheathed cable (4) and to the at least one connecting line (20, 22).
