Abstract (en)

The electric plug contact (1) has a plug zone (2) adapted to receive a plug connector provided as a counterpart to the plug contact. The contact also has a connection zone (4) for electrically connecting the plug contact with an electric component. The connector also has an intermediate zone (5) between the plug zone and the connection zone. The plug contact has an L-shaped region (2,5,6,7) and the entire plug zone is arranged in the L-shaped region. The plug zone is movable be deforming the intermediate zone relative to the connection zone in the plug-in direction. The intermediate zone (5) has at least a first shape changing region (6) which has a lower resistance to shape changing than the other parts of the intermediate zone. Independent claims also cover a device for receiving the plug contact.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft einen elektrischen Steckkontakt zur elektrischen Verbindung eines dem Steckkontakt als Gegenstück zugeordneten Steckanschlusses mit einem elektrischen Bauteil, beispielsweise einer Leiterplatte. Bei diesem Steckkontakt soll das Problem des Reibverschleisses bzw. der Reibkorrosion, welches infolge von Vibrationen z. B. beim Einsatz in einem Kraftfahrzeug auftritt, vermieden werden. Des weiteren soll der Steckkontakt einfach und preisgünstig herzustellen sein und für das Dickdrahtbonden einsetzbar sein. Der erfindungsgemäße Steckkontakt weist eine Steckzone, eine Zwischenzone und eine Verbindungszone auf, wobei der Steckkontakt einen L-förmigen Bereich aufweist und die gesamte Steckzone in dem L-förmigen Bereich angeordnet ist, die Steckzone unter Verformung der Zwischenzone gegenüber der Verbindungszone in Steckrichtung bewegbar ist und die Zwischenzone wenigstens einen ersten Formänderungsbereich aufweist, welcher einen geringeren Formänderungswiderstand hat als die übrigen Bereiche der Zwischenzone. <IMAGE>
