Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung offenbart eine Verbindungseinrichtung zum Verbinden von leitfähigen, flächigen Strukturen mit einem elektrischen Leiter, beispielsweise mit einem Kabel. Diese umfaßt eine elektrisch leitfähige Buchse zum Anschluß an die leitfähige Struktur, durch welche sich die Buchse erstreckt. Die Verbindungseinrichtung erfüllt erhöhte Anforderungen in Bezug auf die Sicherheit und Zuverlässigkeit der Erhaltung der elektrischen und mechanischen Kontaktierungen. Diese Aufgabe erfüllt die Verbindungseinrichtung mit einer elektrisch leitfähigen Buchse zu Anschluß an die leitfähige, flächige Struktur und einer Einrichtung zum Anschluß an einen von der Struktur weiterführenden Leiter. Die elektrisch leitfähige Buchse ist zur Anordnung in einem Loch in der flächigen, leitfähigen Struktur ausgebildet, so daß sich die Buchse durch die flächige Struktur hindurch erstreckt. Weiterhin weist die Buchse einen Kopfabschnitt auf, der sich im wesentlichen senkrecht zur Mantelfläche der Buchse erstreckt und an der leitenden Oberfläche der flächigen Struktur anliegt. Das Anwendungsgebiet der Verbindungseinrichtung liegt vorwiegend in der Automobilfertigung, etwa für den Anschluß von Sitzheizungen oder Belastungssensoren in Autositzen. <IMAGE>
