Title: RESILIENT CONTACT DEVICE, CONTACT ARRANGEMENT AND PLUG TYPE CONNECTOR
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a contact device (1, 1') for electrically contacting a counter-contact face (11) which can be connected to the contact device (100, 100') in an insertion direction (S), comprising at least one contact arm (2, 3, 4) having at least one contact location (8, 8') for contacting the counter-contact face, the at least one contact location (8, 8') being arranged so as to be able to be resiliently deflected transversely relative to a longitudinal direction (L2, L4) of the contact arm (2, 3, 4). The invention further relates to a contact arrangement (100) for electrically contacting a counter-contact arrangement which can be connected to the contact arrangement (100, 100') in an insertion direction (S). The invention further relates to an electrical plug type connector (1000) having a connector element (300) and a mating connector element (400) which can be connected thereto in the insertion direction (S). In order to prevent occurrences of friction between the contact location (8, 8') and the counter-contact face, there is provision according to the invention for the longitudinal direction (L2, L4) to extend substantially transversely relative to the insertion direction (S) and for the contact arrangement (100, 100') to have at least one contact device (1, 1') according to the invention or the connector element (300) or the mating connector element (400) to have at least one contact arrangement (100, 100', 100") according to the invention.
