Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2011026919A1] The invention relates to an electric lamp (1), particularly an LED or an OLED lamp, having a rod shaped element (3) which is used in particular as illuminating means. Both of the longitudinal ends of said element (3) have a pin contact (5). The electric lamp also has a mounting (6) which is provided with two sockets, each having electric connectors (6a) into which the rod-shaped element (3) can be inserted and rendered operational. The insertion is achieved by rotating the pin contacts (5) about an axis that is in particular parallel to the longitudinal axis of the mounting (6). The invention is characterized in that the extension of the rod-shaped element (3) in a second direction (R2) is at least so much larger than the extension in a first direction (R1) in an operational state that the rod-shaped element (3) cannot be unscrewed out of the operational state without changing the geometry of said rod-shaped element, wherein the first direction (R1) runs in particular from the rod-shaped element (3) to the mounting (6) and the second direction (R2) runs in particular on a plane (E) which is perpendicular to the first direction.
