Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19851507A1] A relay with a coupling element consists of at least one spring bracket having an active and a passive contact spring. A coupling element is provided for mechanically connecting several relays of this kind. Said coupling element can be connected to the corresponding spring brackets of said relays by plugging in, so as to form a twin out of the one-piece-relay. If an electrical coupling is desired next to the mechanical coupling, at least one double contact spring is provided, one part of the contact spring being allocated to one spring bracket and the other part of the contact spring being allocated to the opposite spring bracket and the two contact springs being connected by said coupling element via an electrically conductive connecting rod.
