Title: CONNECTION USING ZEBRA STRIP
Abstract:
The present invention concerns a housing for a price-marking device comprising a LCD (30) and a printed circuit board (20) with control electronics and power supply, e.g. a solar cell. The thin LCD (30) is connected to the underlying printed circuit board (30) by means of a connection device containing conductive rubber areas. Such a device is referred to as a zebra contact, the zebra contact strip (15) being arranged between the LCD (30) and the printed circuit board by means of outer enclosing edges (12a, 12b) on the extruded housing (10) preferably made of plastic material and being compressed in a direction across the conducting rubber areas by the action of outer enclosing edges (12a, 12b) which upon extrudation have been given an inward directed biasing force.
