Title
(EN) ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR HAVING ONE OR MORE ELECTRICAL CONTACT POINTS
(FR) CONNECTEUR ELECTRIQUE COMPORTANT UN OU PLUSIEURS POINTS DE CONTACT ELECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
An electrical connector having one or more electrical contacts for providing an electrical connection to an inserted pin is provided. The electrical connector includes a spring made of electrically conductive material and a loading element attached to the spring and arranged to define an opening for pin insertion. The spring is physically arranged relative to the loading element to create a tension on the loading element. The electrical connector includes at least one conductive wire in electrical communication with the spring. The wire is wound around the spring and the loading element, providing multiple electrical contact points radially inward relative to a center of the opening to provide electrical contact to the inserted pin. When the pin is inserted into the opening, the loading element is tensioned such that the loading element generates a contact force at each contact point.

La présente invention se rapporte à un connecteur électrique comportant un ou plusieurs contacts électriques pour fournir une connexion électrique à une broche insérée. Le connecteur électrique comporte un ressort fait d'un matériau conducteur d'électricité et un élément de charge attaché au ressort et disposé pour définir une ouverture pour l'insertion de la broche. Le ressort est disposé physiquement par rapport à l'élément de charge pour créer une tension dans l'élément de charge. Le connecteur électrique comporte au moins un fil conducteur en communication électrique avec le ressort. Le fil est enroulé autour du ressort et l'élément de charge, présentant de multiples points de contact électrique radialement vers l'intérieur par rapport au centre de l'ouverture de manière à assurer un contact électrique pour la broche insérée. Lorsque la broche est insérée dans l'ouverture, l'élément de charge est tendu de sort qu'il exerce une force de contact sur chaque point de contact.
