The holding element has a flat pin reinforcement section between the two pin sections, an intermediate section and a sprung angled holding section protruding via an opening (6) in the base section and forming the supporting edge.

Description

The invention relates to an electrical contact element with

  • a base element that
    • is formed of a flat material with a high electrical conductivity,
    • a conductor contact section,
    • an integrally connected to the conductor contact portion and formed into a box cross-section base portion having a top wall with an opening, the top wall opposite a bottom wall and two connecting these side walls, and
    • a flat pin which integrally adjoins the base portion away from the conductor contact portion and which comprises two superimposed pin portions, and
  • a holding element, the
    • is formed from a steel sheet, and has a support edge,

The invention particularly relates to an electrical contact element which is particularly has small dimensions and is provided with a flat pin, the example has a width of 1.2 mm and a total thickness of 0.64 mm. Such electrical contact elements, for example, for the connection of electrically operated components or electronic components used in a vehicle.

Several such contact elements are, for example, in a housing of a Connector added. The housing has receiving chambers which are in a certain grid next to or above each other are arranged and one each Pick up the contact element. The contact element must be secured against extension be. The bracket must also be able to handle the connection forces the contact elements act to take over.

EP 0 821 453 B1 describes an electrical contact element. This includes Base element made of a sheet material with a good electrical conductivity consists. The base member has a conductor contact portion, for example Crimplaschen includes, for connection to the head of a cable or the insulation serve the cable. The conductor contact section integrally joins to a box cross-section shaped base section. This includes an upper one Wall facing a bottom wall. Further, the upper wall and the Bottom wall connected by two side walls. To the base section joins, away from the conductor contact portion, integrally a flat pin. This comprises two superimposed pin sections. From the upper wall of the Base portion is toward the connected to the base portion End portion of the connector pin before a material portion, which is integral with the base portion is formed and between the two superimposed pin sections attacks. This is to be the root area, i. the adjacent to the base section Area of the flat pin, reinforced. The two pin sections and also the reinforcing portion are made of the same material, namely made of a material with good electrical conductivity.

The base portion is formed by a likewise box-shaped cover enclosed, which is also known as Überfeder. This one is made of a stainless steel Made of steel and has a lancet-shaped section, which is a resilient Holding element forms. This contact element is for example in a Contact element receiving chamber of a housing of a connector was added and in this by this lance-shaped element by grasping behind a Projected in the contact element receiving chamber. A cover in the form of an over-spring, which encloses the base element, leads to enlarged Dimensions and thus larger distances of the contact element receiving chambers. Furthermore, the reinforcement does not improve the strength of the tab pin towards its free end, because no support is given in this area. Also, the material is for the liner is used, relatively soft. It consists of a copper material, which is a has good electrical conductivity.

A miniaturized electrical contact element is, for example, in DE 42 44 776 C2. The contact element comprises a base element with a conductor contact portion and an insulation crimping portion for connection with an electrical cable or with a conductor thereof, for example, from can consist of several individual wires. The base member further includes a Intermediate section, which is U-shaped and further integrally thereafter a flat pin. This is made of two superimposed pin sections educated. The base element is punched out of an electrically conductive sheet metal. The stamped part is then reshaped to form a tab pin is made by the two pin sections are superimposed and pressed. Here, the conductor contact portion and also the Isolierquetschabschnitt and brought the base portion in the above U-shape. The base section is wrapped by a box-shaped holding element in the form of an over-spring, the at this is fixed positively. Furthermore, outwardly bent latch spring arms on two opposite side walls of the over-spring by attaching punched out of a U-shaped cutout. The detent spring arms are outward over the side walls in front. The over-spring consists of one in relation to the base element stronger and more elastic material, e.g. from steel. The detent spring arms serve to the contact element in the associated receiving space of a connector housing to set, i. secure against pulling out. Training with a U-shaped base element and this enclosing box-shaped Over spring has the disadvantage that the dimensions are large in cross section. Therefore, the spacings of the receiving chambers, i. the grid, in one Connector housing be designed to be large accordingly. However, there is the Demand to reduce the pitch even more and thus in a given Space to accommodate more contact elements in a connector housing.

DE 201 04 233 U 1 relates to an electrical contact element, which consists of a Sheet metal stamping is made and a contact in the form of a pin and a Having crimp region as a conductor contact portion. The pin is a so-called Assigned box spring over which a tongue for fixing the contact element in a housing.

DE 42 00 109 A 1 (= US 5445541) relates to a contact element with a conductor contact portion in the form of Crimplaschen and then a support body area for axially fixing the contact element in a connector housing. The flat pin consists of two superimposed pin sections, the starting from a sheet metal stamping are bent so that they overlap. Between the conductor contact section in the form of Crimplaschen and as a flat pin formed contact portion is the support body, through Lobe is formed. This is in the assembled state of an approach to the connector housing engaged behind. This approach is part of a locking arm, which on the connector housing is formed elastically resilient.

DE 199 22 560 A1 describes a contact element, which integrally with comprising a conductor contact section. At this base section can be a separately made connector pin made of a solid material become. He has for this purpose a correspondingly shaped connection section. In addition, a holding element is provided in the form of a box spring, which surrounds the base portion and a lance-shaped and resilient holding portion has, which forms a support edge. The pin is solid and executed has a square section in cross-section. The base element with the integrally molded contact portion and the separate plug pin consist preferably of a copper alloy. The retaining element associated therewith in the form of a fixing sleeve can for additional stabilization of the claw of the Pin be used with the base element.

This results in the object underlying the invention, an electrical contact element to provide, whose cross section with respect to the in a receiving chamber male section is formed smaller and on the despite reduction the dimension is formed a stable tab pin.

This object is achieved in that the holding element,

  • a flat pin reinforcement portion disposed between the two pin portions,
  • has an extending from the pin reinforcement portion and on the bottom wall inside applying intermediate portion and
  • Having an angled to the intermediate portion and emerging from the breakthrough resilient holding portion which forms a support edge.

Characterized in that the holding element is strip-shaped and in the base element is arranged, the outer dimensions of the contact element can be reduced are, i. the box cross-section can be made smaller overall. The Base element is preferably punched out of a sheet material and in his Shape bent. The intended for securing the contact element retaining element is still made of a steel, giving the necessary spring properties and it also provides the required security Pulling out of a connector housing. Due to the smaller dimensions For example, the grid size with which such miniaturized contact elements are arranged be reduced compared to the embodiments of the prior art become. Another advantage is that even the area of the flat pin altogether by the between the pin sections from an electrically conductive material received pin reinforcement portion of the holding element is reinforced. The material of which the holding element consists must be larger Strength than the material of which the base element consists. It must but not necessarily made of a spring steel, if the requirements accordingly are.

As a result, when repeatedly connecting and disconnecting connectors that have a plurality of such contact elements, in particular the risk that one of the contact elements is bent, significantly reduced. That is the base element made of a copper material, the risk of deformation for the Flat pin especially when occurring in miniaturized contact elements Dimensions significantly reduced.
