Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1544947A2] The patent concerns a new plug/socket connector for flexible and rigid cables, comprising a roughly triangular-shaped metal lamina (E), having a mobile side (E2) featuring a window (E21) or rectangular hole and a flexion side (E3), joined to a plate (C1) of an electrical contact (C) so that the end of the plate (C1) of the electrical contact (C) locates in the window or hole (E21) of the elastic element (E); a cylindrical pin (A) designed to rotate, having on its lateral surface a groove or channel (A1) with roughly spiral portion shaped section and provided at the top with a slot (A2) designed to receive the tip of a screwdriver, adheres to the elastic element so that its lateral groove or channel (A1) rests on the side or on the corner of the elastic element (E) so that the rotation of said cylindrical pin (A) causes compression of the elastic element (E), thus opening its window (E21).
