Abstract (en)

The invention relates to an electrically conductive contact member (1) for an electrical connector, comprising at least one terminal portion (2) adapted to be mechanically and electrically connected in a mounting direction (G) to at least one conductor, and at least one contact portion (4) adapted to contact a mating contact portion of a mating connector. Further, the invention relates to a sheet metal blank (14) for bending an electrically conductive contact member (1) and a set of electrically conductive contact members (1). To provide a contact element for an electrical connector, in particular, for miniature connectors, which can be customized cost effectively, the at least one terminal portion (2) comprises a base section (2a), an adjustment section (2g) and a fixing section (2b), wherein said adjustment section (2g) extends between said fixing section (2b) and said base section (2a).
