Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2637475A1] The generating element has a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) element provided on both sides of planar adjoining contact plates (4). A single-piece housing (2) forms an aperture (6) for receiving the PTC element. A connection side (16) of the housing is exposed to contact tongues (48) associated with the contact plates. The contact plates comprise a plug-in tab (30), which is received in insertion openings (26, 28) that are formed by the housing. The plug-in tab is formed by a free-cut plug-in lug.
