Title
(EN) CONTACT ELEMENT, CLAMPING ELEMENT, BASE AND ARRANGEMENT FOR HOLDING AND CONTACTING AN LED
(FR) ELÉMENT DE CONTACT, ÉLÉMENT DE SERRAGE, BASE ET DISPOSITIF POUR LA RETENUE ET LA MISE EN CONTACT ÉLECTRIQUE D'UNE LED
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a contact element (3, 3', 3"), a base (2, 2', 2", 2"'), a clamping element (4, 4', 4"), an arrangement (1, 1', 1", 1"', 1"", 1''''') and a mounting section (301, 301', 301") for electrically contacting a light-emitting diode (LED) (100, 100'). In order to conveniently and cost-effectively hold and electrically contact the LED (100, 100'), the present invention provides that the contact element (3, 3') comprises a mounting section (301, 301') adapted for mounting the contact element (3, 3') to the base (2, 2') in a manner that the contact element (3, 3') is pivotable about a pivot axis (P) extending through the mounting section (301, 301 '), and comprises a contact arm (302, 302') protruding laterally from the mounting section (301, 301 ') and having on a distal end a contact point (303) facing essentially in a contact direction (K) for contacting the LED (100), wherein the contact direction is running essentially in parallel to the pivot axis (P). Further, the invention provides that the base (2, 2', 2") comprises at least one contact receptacle (203, 203', 203") which is adapted to accommodate a contact element (3, 3') according to at least one of claims 1 to 10 in at least to different rotational positions (R1, R2), and that the clamping element (4, 4', 4") comprises an attachment section (401, 401') adapted to be attached to the base (2, 2') at the at least one contact receptacle (203, 203', 203"), and a holding section (402, 402') adapted to hold down the contact arm (302, 302') of the contact element (3, 3') towards the LED (100, 100').
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un élément de contact (3, 3', 3"), une base (2, 2', 2", 2"'), un élément de serrage (4, 4', 4"), un dispositif (1, 1', 1", 1'", 1"", 1''''') et une section de montage (301, 301', 301") pour la mise en contact électrique d'une diode électroluminescente (LED) (100, 100'). Dans le but de retenir la LED (100, 100') et de la mettre en contact électrique de manière pratique et économique, la présente invention est caractérisée en ce que l'élément de contact (3, 3') comprend une section de montage (301, 301') conçue pour le montage de l'élément de contact (3, 3') sur la base (2, 2') de façon que l'élément de contact (3, 3') puisse pivoter autour d'un axe de pivotement (P) s'étendant à travers la section de montage (301, 301'), et comprend un bras de contact (302, 302') faisant saillie latéralement à partir de la section de montage (301, 301') et présentant, sur une extrémité distale, un point de contact (303) dirigé sensiblement dans une direction de contact (K) pour la mise en contact de la LED (100), la direction de contact étant sensiblement parallèle à l'axe de pivotement (P). En outre, l'invention est caractérisée en ce que la base (2, 2', 2") comprend au moins une cavité de contact (203, 203', 203") conçue pour recevoir un élément de contact (3, 3') selon au moins l'une des revendications 1 à 10, dans au moins deux positions de rotation (R1, R2), et en ce que l'élément de serrage (4, 4', 4") comprend une section de fixation (401, 401') conçue pour être fixée à la base (2, 2') au niveau de l'au moins une cavité de contact (203, 203', 203"), et une section de retenue (402, 402') conçue pour maintenir vers le bas le bras de contact (302, 302') de l'élément de contact (3, 3') en direction de la LED (100, 100').
