Description

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Klemmverbinder zum Zuführen oder Ab leiten elektrischer Signale an Filmelektroden, mit einem Bodenteil und einer um eine Achse auf das Bodenteil schwenkbaren Klappe, wobei das Anschlußteil der Filmelektrode zwischen dem Bodenteil und der Klappe einklemmbar ist. The invention relates to a clamping connector for supplying or Ab conduct electrical signals to film electrodes, with a bottom part and a pivotable about an axis on the bottom flap portion, wherein the connecting portion of the film electrode between the bottom part and the lid can be clamped.

Ein solcher Klemmverbinder ist beispielsweise aus der WO 85/02500 A1 bekannt. Such displacement connector is known for example from WO 85/02500 A1. Dieser Klemmverbinder besteht aus einem einteiligen Kunststoffspritzteil. This displacement connector consists of a one-piece injection molded plastic part. Bodenteil und Klappe sind an dem hinteren Ende miteinander verbunden. Bottom part and the flap are interconnected at the rear end. Maulartig wird der Klemmverbinder ge öffnet bzw. geschlossen. Mouth-like clamping connector ge open or closed. Der Klemmverbinder wird an das An schlußteil der Filmelektrode angeklemmt. The clamping connector is clamped trailer of the film electrode to the An. Hierzu wird das geöffnete Maul über das Anschlußteil gestülpt und anschließend durch Druck mit zwei Fingern auf die Klappe und das Bodenteil zusammenge drückt. For this, the open mouth is placed over the connector and then by pressing two fingers on the lid and the bottom part together amount suppressed. Das Anschlußteil ist dann fest eingeklemmt. The connector is then clamped firmly.

Nachteilig bei diesem Klemmverbinder ist, daß er zum Verschließen von zwei Fingern oben und unten umgriffen werden muß. A disadvantage of this terminal connector, that it must be gripped for closing of two fingers up and down. Der untere, das Bodenteil umgreifende Finger befindet sich folglich beim An klemmen an das Anschlußteil zwischen dem Klemmverbinder und der Haut des Patienten. The lower, the bottom part embracing finger is thus the clamp on to the connection part between the terminal connector and the patient's skin. Die Filmelektrode bzw. deren Anschlußteil wird folglich in einem Winkel zu ihr ergriffen. The film electrode or the connecting part is thus moved at an angle to it. Einerseits wird dadurch das Herstellen der Verbindung erschwert, andererseits besteht die Gefahr, daß sich die Elektrode beim Anklemmen löst. On one hand, thereby making the connection is made more difficult, on the other hand there is the danger that the electrode dissolves when connecting.

Aus der US 4,700,997 ist ein mit einem Schieber versehener Klemm verbinder bekannt. From US 4,700,997 a provided with a slide clamp is known connector. In seiner hinteren Extremstellung gibt der Schieber den Klemmverbinder frei, so daß das Anschlußstück der Elektrode eingeschoben werden kann. In its rear extreme position, the slider releases the clamp connectors, so that the connecting piece of the electrode can be inserted. Wird der Schieber dann in die entgegengesetzte Richtung verlagert, erfolgt die Verklemmung im Inneren des Klemmverbinders. If the slide is then moved in the opposite direction, the clamping is carried out inside the terminal connector. Auch dieser Klemmverbinder muß mit zwei Fingern von oben und unten umgriffen werden, so daß das zuvor beschriebene Problem auch hier besteht. This displacement connector also must be grasped with two fingers from the top and bottom so that the above problem is also here.

Die US 3,842,394 offenbart einen Klemmverbinder für eine Filmelek trode, bei dem die Öffnungs- und Schließbewegung der Klemmbacke über einen verschwenkbaren Hebel einleitbar ist. The US 3,842,394 discloses a terminal connector for a Filmelek trode, wherein the opening and closing movement of the clamping jaw via a pivotable lever can be introduced. Dieser Klemmver binder ist aber recht umständlich zu handhaben und kompliziert aufgebaut. This Klemmver binder but is quite cumbersome to handle and complicated construction.

Von dieser Problemstellung ausgehend soll ein gattungsgemäßer Klemmverbinder so verbessert werden, daß seine Handhabung verein facht und bei seinem Anklemmen ein Lösen der Elektrode vermieden wird. Starting from this problem, a generic terminal connector is to be improved so that its handling fanned club and a loosening of the electrode is avoided with its clamping.

Zur Problemlösung zeichnet sich der eingangs beschriebene Klemm verbinder dadurch aus, daß die Öffnungs- und Schließbewegung der Klappe über einen quer zur Einführrichtung des Anschlußteils im Bodenteil bewegbar gelagerten mechanisch mit der Klappe gekoppel ten Betätigungsschieber einleitbar ist. To solve the problem of the terminal initially described is characterized connector is characterized in that the opening and closing movement of the flap can be introduced on a transversely movably mounted to the insertion direction of the connecting part in the bottom part mechanically gekoppel with the flap th actuation slider.

Durch diese Ausgestaltung ist es möglich, den Klemmverbinder seit lich zu erfassen. By this configuration, it is possible to detect the displacement connector for Lich. Das Bodenteil kann folglich auf der Haut des Patienten aufliegen, wenn die Klemmverbindung hergestellt wird. The bottom part can lie therefore on the skin of the patient when the clamping connection is made. Der Klemmverbinder wird also geführt, wenn er das Anschlußstück der Filmelektrode erfaßt. The terminal connector is therefore performed when it detects the fitting of the film electrode. Ein Ablösen der Filmelektrode während des Anschließens von der Haut des Patienten wird dadurch vermie den. Peeling of the film electrode during connection of the patient's skin is characterized vermie the.

Vorzugsweise ist der Betätigungsschieber mit einer schiefen Ebene versehen, die auf einen mit der Klappe verbundenen Zapfen wirkt. Preferably, the operating slide with an inclined plane is provided, which acts on a flap connected to the pin. Diese schiefe Ebene kann insbesondere vorzugsweise durch eine schräg verlaufende Nut im Betätigungsschieber ausgebildet sein. This inclined plane can particularly preferably be formed by an obliquely extending groove in the actuating slide.

Durch diese Ausbildung ist die Bewegung der Klappe nicht nur zwangsgeführt, sondern da der Zapfen in die Nut eingreifen kann, ist er gegen Herausfallen aus dem Bodenteil gesichert. By this design the movement of the flap is not only forced, but since the pin can engage in the groove, it is secured against falling out of the bottom part.

Wenn der Betätigungsschieber von einer Druckfeder belastet ist, ist es möglich, die Öffnungsbewegung gegen die Kraft der Druckfe der einleitbar zu gestalten. If the operating slide is loaded by a compression spring, it is possible to make the opening movement against the force of the Druckfe introduced. Dadurch wird die Herstellung der elektrischen Verbindung vereinfacht. Thus, the production of the electrical connection is simplified. Durch Loslassen des Betäti gungsschiebers schnappt die Klappe zu und klemmt die Filmelektrode ein. By releasing the Actuate the supply sideshift the flap snaps and clamps the film electrode.

Vorteilhaft ist es, wenn das Bodenteil einen in Richtung der Klap pe ragenden Dorn aufweist. it when the bottom portion has a projecting in the direction of Klap pe mandrel is advantageous. Beim Zufallen der Klappe wird dieser dann in die Elektrode hineingedrückt oder durchstößt sie, wodurch sichergestellt wird, daß die Elektrode aus dem Klemmverbinder nicht herausgezogen werden kann, ohne diesen zuvor zu öffnen. When shutting the door this is then pressed into the electrode or by knocking them, thereby ensuring that the electrode of the terminal connector can not be pulled out, without opening it before.

Wenn das Bodenteil eine Bohrung und die Klappe eine scharfkantige Vertiefung aufweist, die bei geschlossener Klappe zur Bohrung fluchtet, dann kann das Anschlußteil auch verwendet werden, um die elektrische Verbindung zu einer Elektrode mit druckknopfförmigem Anschlußteil herzustellen. If the base part is a bore, and the flap has a sharp-edged recess which is aligned with the flap closed the hole, then the connecting member can also be used to make the electrical connection to an electrode with druckknopfförmigem connecting part. Dadurch steigt die Universalität des Klemmverbinders. Thus, the universality of the clamping connector increases. Bei geöffneter Klappe wird das Bodenteil über das druckknopfförmige Anschlußteil gestülpt, so daß dieses ins Innere des Klemmverbinders hineinragt. Flip open the bottom part is placed over the push button shaped connecting part, so that the latter protrudes into the interior of the clamping connector. In der geöffneten Stellung liegt die scharfkantige Vertiefung hinter dem Anschlußelement der Elek trode. In the open position the sharp recess is situated behind the connecting element of the elec trode. Beim Absenken der Klappe wandert dieses durch die bogenför mige Lageveränderung weiter in Richtung nach vorn und hintergreift das Anschlußelement, wenn sie anschließend zur Bohrung im Boden teil fluchtet, so daß eine sichere Verbindung hergestellt wird. When lowering of the flap it travels through the bogenför-shaped change in position in the direction of forward and engages behind the connection element, when it is aligned then to the bore in the bottom part, so that a secure connection is established.

Eine einfache ansprechende Form des Klemmverbinders ist möglich, wenn das Bodenteil einen nach oben ragenden, die Längs- und hinte ren Querseiten umrandenden Rahmen aufweist, in dem die Klappe ge lagert ist. A simple appealing form of the clamping connector is possible if the base part projecting an upwardly having longitudinal and transverse sides hinte ren skirting frame in which the door is open superimposed. Die Klappe kann dann vorne mit entsprechenden Verbrei terungen versehen sein, die mit dem Rahmen abschließen, so daß ein geschlossener Körper gegeben ist. The flap may then be provided forward Chippings with corresponding dis which close to the frame, so that a closed body is given.

Der Klemmverbinder besteht aus dem Bodenteil 11 , der hierin schwenkbar gelagerten Klappe 6 und dem Betätigungsschieber 1 . The clamping connector consists of a base part 11 pivotally mounted flap herein 6 and the actuating slide. 1 Die Anschlußleitung 16 , die mit dem Bodenteil 11 verbunden ist, ist elektrisch mit der elektrisch leitenden Schicht 15 , die im Inneren des Bodenteils 11 vorgesehen ist, verbunden. The connection line 16 which is connected to the bottom part 11 is electrically connected to the electrically conductive layer 15, which is provided in the interior of the bottom 11. Wie Fig. 1 zeigt, wird der Klemmverbinder in Richtung des Pfeiles R auf das An schlußteil 17 der hier nicht näher dargestellten Filmelektrode aufgeschoben. Referring to FIG. 1, the clamping connector in the direction of arrow R is pushed final part of the film electrode 17 not shown here to An. Ein in Richtung der Klappe 6 heraufragender Dorn 14 sichert dabei das Herausrutschen des Anschlußteils 17 aus dem ge schlossenen Klemmverbinder. An up protruding in the direction of the flap 6 mandrel 14 thereby secures it from slipping out of the connecting part 17 from the closed ge clamp connectors.

Das Bodenteil 11 ist rahmenförmig ausgebildet, wobei die beiden parallel zur Pfeilrichtung R verlaufenden Seitenteile 10 a, 10 b nicht mit dem vorderen Rand des Bodenteils 11 abschließen, sondern dahinter zurückstehen. The bottom part 11 is formed like a frame, with the two parallel to the direction of the arrow R extending side parts 10 a, 10 b do not complete with the front edge of the bottom part 11 but back behind it. Die Klappe 6 ist so zugeschnitten, daß sie in dem Rahmen 10 aufgenommen wird und mit ihrem vorderen Bereich den von den Seitenteilen 10 a, 10 b freigelassenen Bereich vollflä chig abdeckt. The flap 6 is cut so that it is received in the frame 10 and with its front area the of the side portions 10 a, 10 b exposed portion covers vollflä chig. An ihrem hinteren Ende ist die Klappe 6 mit einem mittigen Zapfen 7 versehen, der in die im Führungsteil 2 vorgese henen Nut 4 des Betätigungsschiebers 1 eingreift. At its rear end, the flap 6 is provided with a central pivot 7, which engages the guide member 2 in vorgese Henen groove 4 of the actuating slide. 1 Zentral ist das Führungsteil 2 mit einer Bohrung 3 versehen, in der sich mit ihrem einen Ende eine Druckfeder 18 abstützt, die sich im Inneren des Bodenteils 11 mit ihrem anderen Ende gegen das Seitenteil 10 a ab stützt (vgl. Fig. 3). Central the guide member 2 is provided with a bore 3 in which a compression spring is supported with its one end 18, which with its other end against the side part 10 a from supported in the interior of the base 11 (see FIG. FIG. 3). Die Lagerung der Klappe 6 im Bodenteil 11 kann, wie beispielsweise Fig. 2 und 6 verdeutlichen, unter schiedlich erfolgen. The mounting of the flap 6 in the bottom part 11 can, for example FIGS. 2 and 6 illustrate, take place under different. So können an der Klappe 6 im hinteren Bereich nach außen ragende Zapfen 8 vorgesehen sein, die in Ausnehmungen im Rahmen 10 eingeschnappt werden. Thus, 8 may be provided to be snapped into recesses in the frame 10 to the flap 6 in the rear of outwardly projecting pins. Durch den in die Nut 4 im Füh rungsteil 2 eingreifenden Zapfen 7 der Klappe 6 ist der Betäti gungsschieber 1 gegen Herausfallen aus dem Bodenteil 11 gesichert. By engaging in the groove 4 in Füh approximately part 2 pin 7 of the valve 6 of the Actuate the secured supply slider 1 from falling out of the bottom part. 11 Wird der Betätigungsschieber 1 in den Klemmverbinder hineinge drückt, läuft der Zapfen 7 entlang der schiefen Ebene 4 ' zwangs geführt nach unten, so daß die Klappe 6 nach oben geschwenkt wird. When the operating slider 1 presses into the terminal connector hineinge, the pin 7 runs along the inclined plane 4 'out forced downwardly so that the flap 6 is pivoted upward. Loslassen des Betätigungsschiebers 1 bewirkt, daß sich die Klappe 6 nach unten absenkt, da die Druckfeder 18 den Betätigungsschieber 1 nach außen drückt. Releasing the actuating slider 1 causes the shutter 6 is lowered downward, since the compression spring 18 presses the operating slider 1 to the outside. Damit der Betätigungsschieber 1 einfach er griffen werden kann, ist an ihm ein Griffteil 5 mit einer Finger mulde 5 ' vorgesehen. So that the operating slide 1 easy it can be attacked, a handle is 5 trough with a finger 5 'is provided to him.

Um den Klemmverbinder auch nutzen zu können, um Elektroden mit knopfförmigem Anschlußteil anzuschließen, kann im Bodenteil 11 optional eine Bohrung 12 vorgesehen sein, die im Durchmesser etwas größer ist als das knopfförmige Anschlußelement. To be able to also make use of the terminal connector to connect electrodes knopfförmigem connecting part, the bottom part 11 a hole 12 may be provided optionally, is slightly larger in diameter than the knob-like terminal element. In der Klappe 6 ist eine scharfkantige Vertiefung 19 vorgesehen, die bei geschlos sener Klappe 6 zur Bohrung 12 fluchtet, bzw. wenn sie kreisrund ist, konzentrisch zur Bohrung 12 verläuft. In the damper 6, a sharp recess 19 is provided which is aligned with closed-flap 6 to the bore 12, or if it is circular, concentric with the bore 12th Bei nach oben ge schwenkter Klappe 6 liegt diese Vertiefung 19 zur Bohrung 12 ver setzt. In ge upwardly pivoted flap 6, this recess located 19 to the bore 12 sets ver. Der Klemmverbinder wird mit seiner Bohrung 12 über das Elektroden-Anschlußteil gestülpt und beim Schließen der Klappe 6 greift die Vertiefung 19 hinter das Anschlußelement und sichert den Klemmverbinder somit gegen Herabfallen von der Elektrode. The clamping connector is placed with its bore 12 through the electrode terminal member and during the closing of the flap 6 engages the recess 19 behind the connection element, and thus secures the terminal connector from falling off from the electrode. Der Klemmverbinder ist vorzugsweise als Kunststoffspritzteil ausgebil det. The clamp connector is preferably ausgebil det as a plastic injection molded part. Die elektrische Leitfähigkeit wird dann durch entsprechende Ausgestaltung der leitenden Schicht 15 im Bodenteil 11 realisiert. The electrical conductivity is realized by appropriate design of the conductive layer 15 in the bottom part. 11
