  As shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B, a female terminal-shaped cable 1 is formed by integrally forming a female terminal 5 at an end portion of a cable 6.
  The cable 6 includes a stranded wire conductor 3 formed by twisting a plurality of strand conductors 2 and an insulating layer 4 formed on the outer periphery of the stranded wire conductor 3.
  As the stranded conductor 3 of the cable 6, it is desirable to use a twisted strand conductor 2, and at least 20 strands, preferably 50 strand twisted strand conductors 2 are used. Good. As the strand conductor 2, for example, one having an outer diameter of about 0.1 to 1.0 mm may be used. The outer diameter of the stranded wire conductor 3 is, for example, 4.0 to 10 mm, and desirably has rigidity as a whole.
  The strand conductor 2 is made of copper, copper alloy, aluminum, aluminum alloy, etc., and the insulating layer 4 is made of rubber material or plastic material. In FIGS. 1A and 1B, the insulating layer 4 is a single layer, but a multilayer structure may be used.
  The female terminal 5 is for inserting and fitting a male terminal member, which will be described later. The female terminal 5 is a part of the tip side of the protruding portion 7 and the diameter of the stranded conductor 3 at the end of the protruding portion 7 is increased. The diameter of the cylindrical portion 5a is gradually increased from the proximal end portion 7a between the cylindrical portion 5a and the proximal end portion 7a of the protruding portion 7 which is the boundary between the protruding portion 7 and the insulating layer 4 and the cylindrical portion 5a. And a tapered base portion 5c. At the end of the female terminal 5, a hollow portion 5b surrounded by the cylindrical portion 5a is formed.
  As shown in FIGS. 2A and 2B, the female terminal 5 is formed by expanding and pressing the plurality of strand conductors 2 at the end of the stranded conductor 3 from the inside.
  As shown in FIG. 2A, first, the stranded wire conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6 is projected from the insulating layer 4 to form a projection 7, and a female terminal molding device 21 is formed around the projection 7. Deploy. The length of the stranded wire conductor 3 protruding from the end of the cable 6 (the length of the protruding portion 7) is, for example, 15 to 20 mm.
  A female terminal molding hole 21a having the same shape as the shape of the female terminal 5 to be molded (the shape of the cylindrical portion 5a and the base portion 5c) is formed in the female terminal molding device 21, and the female terminal molding hole 21a is formed in the female terminal molding hole 21a. The protrusion 7 is disposed.
  Thereafter, the pushing member 22 having the protruding portion 22a having a sharp tip is pushed into the end portion of the protruding portion 7 so as to expand from the center of the end portion of the protruding portion 7 to be hollow, and between the female terminal molding device 21 and the pushing member 22 The female terminal 5 including the hollow portion 5b is formed in the protruding portion 7 by pressurizing and molding. The protrusion 22a of the push-in member 22 is formed to be equal to or slightly smaller than the outer diameter of the male terminal member described later (the outer diameter of the portion inserted and fitted into the hollow portion 5b).
  After the female terminal 5 is formed, when the female terminal molding device 21 and the pushing member 22 are removed, the female terminal-shaped cable 1 shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B is obtained. The outer diameter of the cylindrical portion 5a of the female terminal 5 is, for example, φ10 mm, the inner diameter of the cylindrical portion 5a is, for example, φ5 mm, and the axial length (fitting length) of the hollow portion 5b is, for example, 10 mm.
  Further, a conductive metal may be attached to the female terminal 5 in order to reinforce the mechanical strength of the female terminal 5. The conductive metal to be deposited includes nickel, nickel alloy, silver, silver alloy, tin, tin alloy (eg, solder), gold, gold alloy, platinum, platinum alloy, copper, copper alloy, aluminum, aluminum alloy, Examples include zinc and zinc alloys.
  When attaching a conductive metal to the female terminal 5, after forming the female terminal 5, it is good to immerse the female terminal 5 in the molten metal which melted the conductive metal to adhere. Here, the case where the conductive metal is adhered after the female terminal 5 is formed has been described. However, the conductive metal is first adhered to the stranded wire conductor 3 of the protruding portion 7, and then the female terminal is formed by pressure molding. 5 may be formed.
  As the male terminal member connected to the female terminal 5 of the female terminal-shaped cable 1 in FIGS. 1A and 1B, the male terminal-shaped cable 10 shown in FIGS. 1C and 1D and FIG. The pin terminals 15 shown in e) and (f) are used.
  A male terminal-shaped cable 10 shown in FIGS. 1C and 1D includes a stranded wire conductor 3 formed by twisting a plurality of strand conductors 2 and an insulating layer 4 formed on the outer periphery of the stranded wire conductor 3. In the cable 6, the male terminal 11 is formed by molding the stranded conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6. Here, although the case where the same thing as the female terminal shape cable 1 is used as the cable 6 used for the male terminal shape cable 10, a dimension etc. may differ.
  The male terminal 11 is formed by projecting the stranded conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6 from the insulating layer 4 to form the projecting portion 7 and compressing the end of the projecting portion 7 to reduce the diameter. The length of the stranded wire conductor 3 protruding from the end of the cable 6 (the length of the protruding portion 7) is, for example, 15 to 20 mm.
  The male terminal 11 is a terminal portion 11 a which is a part of the distal end side of the projecting portion 7 and whose diameter is reduced at the end of the projecting portion 7, and the base end of the projecting portion 7 which is the boundary between the projecting portion 7 and the insulating layer 4. It consists of the taper-shaped base part 11b which was between the part 7a and the terminal part 11a, and was gradually diameter-reduced from the base end part 7a. Moreover, in order to make it easy to insert the male terminal 11 into the female terminal 5, a tapered terminal distal end portion 11 c that is further reduced in diameter toward the distal end portion of the male terminal 11 is provided at the distal end portion of the terminal portion 11 a of the male terminal 11. It is formed. The outer diameter of the terminal portion 11a of the male terminal 11 is, for example, φ5 mm.
  When the male terminal-shaped cable 10 is used as the male terminal member, the terminal portion 11a of the male terminal 11 of the male terminal-shaped cable 10 is inserted into the hollow portion 5b of the female terminal 5 of the female terminal-shaped cable 1, as shown in FIG. When fitted, the conductor connection structure 31 of the present invention in which the stranded conductor 3 of the female terminal-shaped cable 1 and the stranded conductor 3 of the male terminal-shaped cable 10 are electrically connected is obtained.
  In order to protect and fix the connection portion between the female terminal shape cable 1 and the male terminal shape cable 10, the connection portion may be covered with a casing or the like. Specifically, a female connector (not shown) is provided so as to cover the female terminal 5 of the female terminal shape cable 1, and a male side connector (not shown) is provided so as to cover the male terminal 11 of the male terminal shape cable 10. When the female terminal-shaped cable 1 and the male terminal-shaped cable 10 are connected, the female-side connector and the male-side connector are fitted to protect and fix the connection portion.
  A pin terminal 15 shown in FIGS. 1E and 1F is formed integrally with a conductor pin portion 16 and a conductor pin portion 16 that are fitted to the female terminal of the female terminal-shaped cable 1, and is connected to an external electric device. Terminal portion 17 for external electrical equipment. Further, in order to facilitate the insertion of the pin terminal 15 into the female terminal 5 at the tip end portion of the conductor pin portion 16, a tapered terminal tip portion 18 having a diameter reduced toward the tip portion of the conductor pin portion 16 is formed. . The pin terminal 15 is made of, for example, copper, copper alloy, aluminum, or aluminum alloy.
  When the pin terminal 15 is used as the male terminal member, the conductor pin portion 16 of the pin terminal 15 is inserted and fitted into the hollow portion 5b of the female terminal 5 of the female terminal shape cable 1 in the same manner as when the male terminal shape cable 10 is used. Connect them together electrically.
  The operation of the first embodiment will be described.
  In the conductor connection structure according to the first embodiment, the stranded wire conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6 to be the female terminal-shaped cable 1 is protruded from the insulating layer 4 to form the protrusion 7, and the end of the protrusion 7 A cylindrical female terminal 5 for inserting a male terminal member is formed by expanding from the center of the part and making it hollow.
  That is, in the conductor connection structure according to the first embodiment, the stranded wire conductor 3 itself of the cable 6 is converted into a terminal to form the female terminal-shaped cable 1, so that the conventionally used terminal is not necessary and a terminal is provided. Accordingly, the connection location between the conductors (connection location between the female terminal 5 and the male terminal 11 or the conductor pin portion 16) can be made smaller than the outer diameter of the cable 6. Therefore, the connection portion can be reduced in size.
  Further, since terminals are not required, the number of parts can be reduced, and the manufacturing cost can be suppressed. Furthermore, weight reduction in the conductor connection structure can be achieved by reducing the size and the number of parts.
  Moreover, since a terminal becomes unnecessary, the raise of the connection resistance which generate | occur | produces in the connection part of the stranded wire conductor 3 and a terminal can be suppressed, and it becomes possible to suppress the heat_generation | fever in a connection location.
  Next, a second embodiment will be described.
  As shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B, the female terminal-shaped cable 41 used in the conductor connection structure according to the second embodiment is the same as the female terminal-shaped cable 1 shown in FIGS. A plurality of slits 42 are formed in the cylindrical portion 5a of the female terminal 5 along the axial direction, and the cylindrical portion 5a is divided in the circumferential direction.
  The slits 42 are preferably formed so as to evenly divide the cylindrical portion 5a evenly in the circumferential direction. By configuring in this way, each inner surface of the divided cylindrical portion 5a is arranged at a position on the straight line across the male terminal member (hollow portion 5b). The terminal member can be firmly fitted. In addition, since the slit 42 is also disposed at a position opposite to the straight line across the male terminal member (hollow portion 5b), for example, the male terminal member is fitted into the slit 42, and the shape of the female terminal 5 Can be prevented from being deformed.
  When the slit 42 is formed, a stranded wire conductor is used by using a pushing member having a projection (for example, a projection formed in a star shape in a cross-sectional view) in which a slit-forming projection is formed in a portion where the slit 42 is formed. When forming the female terminal 5 by press molding 3, the slit 42 may be formed at the same time (see FIGS. 2A and 2B). The stranded wire conductor 3 is formed by twisting a plurality of strand conductors 2, but the stranded wire conductor 3 in the protruded portion is almost straight because it is short, and a slit 42 is formed by inserting a pushing member formed with a protrusion. Can be molded.
  Moreover, when making a conductive metal adhere to the female terminal 5, what is necessary is just to immerse in the molten metal which melt | dissolved the conductive metal in the state which inserted the pushing member, and to remove a pushing member after that. .
  Examples of the male terminal member connected to the female terminal 5 of the female terminal-shaped cable 41 include the male terminal-shaped cable 43 shown in FIGS. 4C and 4D and the pins shown in FIGS. 4E and 4F. Terminal 44 is used. The male terminal shape cable 43 is the same as the male terminal shape cable 10 of FIGS. 1C and 1D, and the pin terminal 44 is the same as the pin terminal 15 of FIGS. 1E and 1F. is there.
  Since the female terminal 5 can have a spring structure by forming the slit 42, the male terminal 11 of the male terminal-shaped cable 43 or the conductor pin portion 16 of the pin terminal 44 is inserted and fitted into the female terminal 5. When this occurs, the male terminal 11 or the conductor pin portion 16 can be firmly held by the female terminal 5. Therefore, it can suppress that a space | interval leaves | separates between the female terminal 5 and the male terminal 11, or the conductor pin part 16, and contact resistance increases, and can suppress the heat_generation | fever by increase in contact resistance.
  Next, a third embodiment will be described.
  As shown in FIGS. 5 (a) and 5 (b), the female terminal shape cable 51 used in the conductor connection structure according to the third embodiment is the same as the female terminal shape cable 41 in FIGS. 4 (a) and 4 (b). A C-shaped spring 52 is provided on the outer periphery of the female terminal 5 in a cross-sectional view that suppresses expansion of the cylindrical portion 5a of the female terminal 5 when the male terminal member is inserted.
  As the spring 52, it is desirable to use a material having high electrical conductivity (conductivity). However, in order to prevent contact corrosion of different metals, when the stranded wire conductor 3 is made of copper or a copper alloy, copper or a copper alloy, a stranded wire conductor is used. When 3 consists of aluminum or an aluminum alloy, it is good to use what consists of the same material as aluminum or aluminum alloy, and the stranded wire conductor 3. FIG.
  Also, when applied in an environment where there is a large amount of heat generated, such as a cable for large current, the spring force may be weakened due to thermal stress relaxation and contact resistance may increase, so the spring property is maintained for a long time. Therefore, it is preferable to use a ferrous alloy having a spring property such as stainless steel. As described above, the material used for the spring 52 may be appropriately determined according to the intended use and the material of the stranded wire conductor 3.
  As the male terminal member connected to the female terminal 5 of the female terminal shape cable 51, the male terminal shape cable 53 shown in FIGS. 5C and 5D and the pins shown in FIGS. 5E and 5F are used. Terminal 54 is used. The male terminal shape cable 53 is the same as the male terminal shape cable 10 of FIGS. 1C and 1D, and the pin terminal 54 is the same as the pin terminal 15 of FIGS. 1E and 1F. is there.
  By providing the spring 52, the spring structure of the female terminal 5 can be reinforced, so that the male terminal 11 or the conductor pin portion 16 can be more firmly held by the female terminal 5, and the contact resistance can be further suppressed. It becomes possible.
  Further, since the male terminal 11 or the conductor pin portion 16 can be firmly fixed to the female terminal 5 by the spring 52, it is not necessary to fix the connection portion with a casing or the like. Therefore, for example, the casing may be omitted, and the connection portion may be protected by winding an insulating tape or the like around the connection portion.
  Next, a fourth embodiment will be described.
  As shown in FIGS. 6A and 6B, the female terminal-shaped cable 61 used in the conductor connection structure according to the fourth embodiment has the stranded wire conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6 protruding from the insulating layer 4. In addition to forming the protruding portion 7, the end portion of the protruding portion 7 is divided into two and formed into a clevis shape, and a female terminal 62 for inserting a male terminal member into the protruding portion 7 is formed.
  The female terminal 62 is a part of the distal end side of the protruding portion 7, and the two terminal portions 62 a formed in a clevis shape by dividing the stranded conductor 3 of the protruding portion 7 into two, the protruding portion 7 and the insulating layer 4. And a taper-shaped base portion 62c formed so as to extend from the base end portion 7a between the base end portion 7a of the projecting portion 7 and the terminal portion 62a. A hollow portion 62b sandwiched between both terminal portions 62a is formed at the end of the female terminal 62. The terminal portions 62a are each formed in a rectangular shape in a cross sectional view.
  A substantially rectangular spring 63 is provided on the outer periphery of the female terminal 62 in a cross-sectional view that suppresses the terminal portion 62a of the female terminal 62 from spreading outward when the male terminal member is inserted into the hollow portion 62b.
  As the male terminal member connected to the female terminal 62 of the female terminal-shaped cable 61, the male terminal-shaped cable 64 shown in FIGS. 6C and 6D and the pins shown in FIGS. 6E and 6F are used. Terminal 67 is used.
  A male terminal-shaped cable 64 shown in FIGS. 6C and 6D is obtained by forming the male terminal 65 by molding the stranded conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6. The male terminal 65 projects the stranded conductor 3 at the end of the cable 6 from the insulating layer 4 to form a projecting portion 7, and the end of the projecting portion 7 has a substantially rectangular shape (flat rectangular shape) in a cross-sectional view. It is formed by molding. Although not shown in FIG. 6D, a tapered terminal having a diameter reduced toward the tip of the male terminal 65 so that the male terminal 65 can be easily inserted into the female terminal 62 at the tip of the male terminal 65. You may form a front-end | tip part.
  As shown in FIGS. 6E and 6F, the pin terminal 67 is inserted into and fitted in the hollow portion 62b of the female terminal 62 of the female terminal-shaped cable 61 and is substantially rectangular (flat) in a cross-sectional view. The conductor pin portion 68 is formed integrally with the conductor pin portion 68 and is connected to an external electric device. A tapered terminal tip portion 68 a having a diameter reduced toward the tip portion of the conductor pin portion 68 is formed at the tip portion of the conductor pin portion 68 so that the conductor pin portion 68 can be easily inserted into the female terminal 62.
  According to the fourth embodiment, similar to the third embodiment, since the female terminal 62 can be reinforced by the spring 63, the male terminal 65 or the conductor pin portion 68 is firmly held on the female terminal 62, The contact resistance can be suppressed.
  Further, the present invention can be applied even when the male terminal 65 and the conductor pin portion 68 have a rectangular shape (flat rectangular shape) in a cross-sectional view. For example, when an existing male terminal (such as a pin terminal) has a rectangular shape. It is good to apply to.
  The conductor connection structure of the present invention is used for, for example, a connector of a high current wire harness employed in a hybrid vehicle or an electric vehicle. An example of a connector for a high-current wire harness using the conductor connection structure of the present invention is shown in FIGS.
