Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft ein elektrisches Kontaktelement nach dem Oberbegriff des Anspruchs 1.The invention relates to an electrical contact element according to the preamble of claim 1.
  • Derartige Kontaktelemente werden benötigt, um eine elektrische Verbindung zwischen einem elektrischen Leiter, insbesondere einem Litzenleiter, und einem Anschlussende eines Stift- oder Buchsenkontakts herzustellen.Such contact elements are needed to establish an electrical connection between an electrical conductor, in particular a stranded conductor, and a terminal end of a pin or socket contact.
  • Zum Anschluss von Litzenleitern an ein elektrisches Kontaktelement wird häufig die Anschlusstechnik des Crimpens gewählt.For connecting stranded conductors to an electrical contact element, the connection technique of crimping is frequently selected.
  • Daher tragen die Kontaktelemente an ihrem Leiteranschlussende eine axiale Bohrung, in der das abisolierte Ende des Litzenleiters eingeführt und durch Crimpung festgequetscht wird.Therefore, the contact elements carry at their conductor terminal end an axial bore, in which the stripped end of the stranded conductor is inserted and squeezed by crimping.
  • Stand der TechnikState of the art
  • Die DE 88 040 92 U1 zeigt ein elektrisches Kontaktelement das in Stanz-Biegetechnik hergestellt wurde. Das elektrische Kontaktelement ist entweder als Stift- oder als Buchsenkontakt ausgebildet, wobei der Anschluss eines Litzenleiters an das Kontaktelement über eine Crimpung erfolgt. Der Crimpbereich des Kontaktelementes ist im wesentlichen als U-förmiges offenes Element ausgebildet. Dieser offene Crimpbereich hat den Vorteil, dass Litzenleiter unterschiedlichen Durchmessers an das gleiche Kontaktelement angeschlossen werden können.The DE 88 040 92 U1 shows an electrical contact element that was produced in stamping and bending technology. The electrical contact element is designed either as a pin contact or as a socket contact, the connection of a stranded conductor to the contact element being effected by crimping. The crimping region of the contact element is designed substantially as a U-shaped open element. This open crimping range has the advantage that stranded conductors of different diameters can be connected to the same contact element.
  • Nachteilig bei den Kontaktelementen die in Stanz- Biegetechnik hergestellt wurden, ist, dass ihr elektrischer Widerstand wegen der Materialarmut höher ist als bei Kontaktelementen aus Vollmaterial.A disadvantage of the contact elements that were produced in stamping and bending technology, is that their electrical resistance is higher because of the low material than in contact elements made of solid material.
  • Auch die US 5653 615 A1 schlägt ein Kontaktelement vor, das im Wesentlichen aus einem Hohlzylinder - also nicht massiv - gebildet ist.Also the US 5653 615 A1 proposes a contact element, which is essentially a hollow cylinder - that is not solid - formed.
  • Die EP 0 197 821 A1 zeigt ein Kontaktelement, welches aus drei verschiedenen Segmenten zusammengesetzt ist.The EP 0 197 821 A1 shows a contact element which is composed of three different segments.
  • Die DE 19 92 567 U zeigt ein Kontaktelement, als Stift- oder Buchsenkontakt ausgeführt, welches aus Vollmaterial hergestellt wird.The DE 19 92 567 U shows a contact element, designed as a pin or socket contact, which is made of solid material.
  • Die GB 346 008 A zeigt ein Kontaktelement, dessen Kontaktbereich maulschlüsselartig ausgeführt ist.The GB 346 008 A shows a contact element, the contact area is executed wrench-like.
  • Die US 5 653 615 A zeigt einen Stiftkontakt, dessen Anschlussbereich etwa mittig eine nach außen gewölbte Lamellenstruktur aufweist.The US 5,653,615 A shows a pin contact, the connection region has approximately centrally an outwardly curved lamellar structure.
  • Die US 2004/0171314 A1 zeigt einen Buchsenkontakt mit einem offenen Crimpanschluss.The US 2004/0171314 A1 shows a female contact with an open crimp connection.
  • Die EP 0 061 587 A2 zeigt einen Kontakt, welcher aus Vollmaterial besteht und welcher im Kontaktbereich wellenförmige, axiale Schlitze aufweist.The EP 0 061 587 A2 shows a contact, which consists of solid material and which has wavy, axial slots in the contact area.
  • Aus der DE 1 992 567 A1 sind Kontaktelemente aus Vollmaterial bekannt, die einen Crimpbereich zum Anschluss von Litzenleitern aufweisen. Derartige Kontaktelemente werden beispielsweise gefertigt, indem ein Drahtstück definierter Länge abgetrennt wird und die Konturen des Kontaktelementes aus diesem Drahtstück z.B. mithilfe der Drehtechnik herausgearbeitet werden. Allerdings ist bei diesen Kontaktelementen der Crimpbereich als Hohlzylinder mit einer geschlossenen Mantelfläche ausgebildet. Dieser Crimpbereich ist nur zum Anschluss eines elektrischen Leiterkabels bestimmten Durchmessers geeignet. So müssen beim Anschließen von Litzenleitern mit geringfügig unterschiedlichen Durchmessern, jeweils unterschiedliche Kontaktelemente aus Vollmaterial verwendet werden.From the DE 1 992 567 A1 contact elements made of solid material are known, which have a crimping area for connecting stranded conductors. Such contact elements are made, for example, by a piece of wire defined length is separated and the contours of the contact element are machined out of this piece of wire, for example using the rotation technique. However, in these contact elements of the crimp is formed as a hollow cylinder with a closed lateral surface. This crimping area is intended only for connecting an electrical conductor cable Diameter suitable. Thus, when connecting stranded conductors with slightly different diameters, each different contact elements made of solid material must be used.
  • Aufgabenstellungtask
  • Die Aufgabe der Erfindung besteht darin, ein elektrisches Kontaktelement vorzuschlagen, welches einen geringen elektrischen Widerstand aufweist und welches gleichzeitig zur elektrischen Kontaktierung von Litzenleitern unterschiedlichen Durchmessers geeignet ist.The object of the invention is to propose an electrical contact element, which has a low electrical resistance and which is suitable at the same time for the electrical contacting of stranded conductors of different diameters.
  • Die Aufgabe wird durch die kennzeichnenden Merkmale des Anspruchs 1 gelöst.The object is solved by the characterizing features of claim 1.
  • Vorteilhafte Ausgestaltungen der Erfindung sind in den Unteransprüchen angegeben.Advantageous embodiments of the invention are specified in the subclaims.
  • Wie bereits erwähnt, wird das elektrische Kontaktelement aus Vollmaterial ausgearbeitet. Dazu wird beispielsweise die Drehtechnik auf Kurven- oder CNCgesteuerten Maschinen verwendet. Für den Schlitz im Anschlussbereich des Kontaktelements sind aber auch spanende Arbeitsschritte notwendig.As already mentioned, the electrical contact element is made of solid material. For this purpose, for example, the turning technique is used on curved or CNC-controlled machines. For the slot in the connection region of the contact element but also cutting operations are necessary.
  • Der Kontaktbereich des Kontaktelementes ist als Buchsenkontakt ausgebildet. Der Anschlussbereich ist als Crimpanschluss ausgebildet, um insbesondere Litzenleiter elektrisch kontaktieren zu können.The contact region of the contact element is designed as a socket contact. The connection region is designed as a crimp connection in order to be able to contact in particular stranded conductors electrically.
  • Beim Crimpvorgang werden die Litzen eines anzuschließenden elektrischen Leiterkabels in den als Hohlzylinder ausgebildeten Anschlussbereich eingeführt. Der Hohlzylinder ist in axialer Richtung eingeschlitzt und ist dadurch seitlich geöffnet. Mithilfe eines geeigneten Crimpwerkzeugs wird eine Kraft auf die Mantelfläche des geschlitzten Hohlzylinders ausgeübt, so dass die gegenüberliegenden Schlitzkanten nach innen gebogen und eingerollt werden. Im bleibend verformten Anschlussbereich des Kontaktelementes befinden sich nunmehr die verdichteten Litzen des Leiterkabels.During the crimping process, the strands of an electrical conductor cable to be connected are inserted into the connecting region formed as a hollow cylinder. The hollow cylinder is slotted in the axial direction and is thereby opened laterally. Using a suitable crimping tool, a force is exerted on the lateral surface of the slotted hollow cylinder, so that the opposite slot edges are bent inward and rolled up. In the permanently deformed connection area of the contact element are now the compacted strands of the conductor cable.
  • Der geschlitzte Hohlzylinder ist zum Crimpanschluss von Litzenleitern verschiedenen Durchmessers geeignet. Ohne den axialen Schlitz würden sich im Crimp- bzw. Anschlussbereich bei Litzenleitern mit zu geringem Durchmesser Hohlräume bilden, die Oxidationsprozesse zulassen und die Kabelauszugskräfte negativ beeinflussen.The slotted hollow cylinder is suitable for crimping stranded conductors of different diameters. Without the axial slot cavities would form in the crimp or terminal area in stranded conductors with too small diameter, which allow oxidation processes and adversely affect the cable pull-out forces.
  • Aufgrund des geschlitzten Anschlussbereichs des erfindungsgemäßen Kontaktelementes können Leiterkabel verschiedenen Durchmessers elektrisch kontaktiert werden. Außerdem wird das Kontaktelement während der Stromführung vorteilhafterweise weniger stark erwärmt als ein Kontaktelement, dass in Stanz-Biegetechnik hergestellt wurde. Die Länge des axialen Schlitzes im Anschlussbereich beträgt mehr als die Hälfte der Länge des Hohlzylinders. Anders gesagt, der Hohlzylinder ist in axialer Richtung um mehr als die Hälfte seiner Länge eingeschlitzt. Dadurch wird verhindert, dass beim Crimpvorgang Risse in der Mantelfläche des Hohlzylinders entstehen. Durch die Risse kann Luft (aber auch andere Medien) an die Litzen des Leiterkabels gelangen. Dadurch können Oxidationsprozesse ausgelöst werden, die die elektrischen Eigenschaften des elektrischen Kontaktes, beispielsweise den Widerstand, verschlechtern. Der Hohlzylinder des Anschlussbereichs ist, zusätzlich zum axialen Schlitz, zumindest ein weiteres mal eingeschlitzt. Dieser zweite Schlitz ist im wesentlichen 90° zum ersten, axialen Schlitz ausgerichtet. Anders gesagt: Der zweite Schlitz ist quer zur Achse des ersten, axialen Schlitzes ausgebildet.Due to the slotted connection region of the contact element according to the invention conductor cables of different diameters can be electrically contacted. In addition, the contact element during the current flow is advantageously less heated than a contact element that was produced in stamping and bending technique. The length of the axial slot in the connection area is more than half the length of the hollow cylinder. In other words, the hollow cylinder is in the axial direction more than half of its length slashed. This prevents the formation of cracks in the lateral surface of the hollow cylinder during the crimping process. Through the cracks, air (but also other media) can reach the strands of the conductor cable. As a result, oxidation processes can be triggered which worsen the electrical properties of the electrical contact, for example the resistance. The hollow cylinder of the connection area is, in addition to the axial slot, slotted at least once more. This second slot is aligned substantially 90 ° to the first, axial slot. In other words, the second slot is formed across the axis of the first axial slot.
  • In der Regel wird die Grundfläche des Hohlzylinderkörpers im Anschlussbereich des Kontaktelementes kreisförmig geformt sein. Aber auch andere Geometrische Formen wie Rechteck, Quadrat, Ellipse oder Oval können vorteilhaft sein und mithilfe der Drehtechnik oder Frästechnik realisiert werden.As a rule, the base surface of the hollow cylindrical body will be circular in the connection region of the contact element. But other geometric shapes such as rectangle, square, ellipse or oval can also be advantageous and can be realized by means of turning or milling technology.
  • Vorteilhafterweise ist zwischen Steck- und Anschlussbereich ein Ringelement ausgebildet. Das Ringelement ist scheibenförmig geformt und dient dazu, das Kontaktelement in einer dazu passenden Ausformung im Isolierkörper eines Steckverbinders zu fixieren.Advantageously, a ring element is formed between plug and connection area. The ring element is disc-shaped and serves to fix the contact element in a matching shape in the insulating body of a connector.
  • Je nach Ausformung des Isolierkörpers des Steckverbinders, kann das Ringelement auch anders geometrisch geformt sein, beispielsweise rechteckig, oval oder quadratisch.Depending on the shape of the insulating body of the connector, the ring element can also be shaped differently geometrically, for example rectangular, oval or square.

In diese Einkerbung 5a greift eine Nicht gezeigte Nase zwischen den Rastclips 12 des Bandes 11, damit sich die einzelnen Stiftkontakte gleich ausgerichtet auf dem Band 12 befinden. Dadurch wird eine störungsfreie maschinelle Verarbeitung der Kontaktelemente gewährleistet.The FIG. 8 shows an example of another contact element 1, which is designed as a pin contact. In the ring member 5, a notch 5a is incorporated. In this notch 5a engages a not shown nose between the locking clips 12 of the belt 11, so that the individual pin contacts are aligned on the same band 12. This ensures a trouble-free mechanical processing of the contact elements.
