Title: HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONNECTION FOR FLEXIBLE CABLES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for producing a device, comprising the following steps: a) providing a first and a second electrical conductor (3, 6), wherein the first and the second electrical conductor (3, 6) are formed from metals or metal alloys having different standard potentials; b) providing an insulating sheath that surrounds at least one of the electrical conductors (3, 6); and c) creating an electrical connection between the first and the second electrical conductor (3, 6), wherein the electrical connection is produced by cold pressing. The electrical connection is compressed with such force that said connection is force-locked and corrosion-resistant. A hydrophobic layer is arranged between the insulating sheath and at least one of the electrical conductors.
