Title: SOCKET FOR A LAMP, LAMP, AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING A SOCKET FOR A LAMP
Abstract:
A socket for a lamp (10) is provided in different embodiments. The socket has: a housing (12) which surrounds an inner space (14), has an opening (16) for receiving a lamp (34) into the inner space (14), and has a first recess (18) and a second recess (20) which are formed in the housing (12) opposite the opening (16) and which extend through the housing (12); a first plug (22) and a second plug (24) which each have a radial outer surface (56) that is formed in a zigzag shape in the axial direction, and which are each interlockingly and integrally secured in each of the recesses (18, 20) by means of the zigzag-shaped outer surfaces (56); and an electrically conductive first wire (46) and an electrically conductive second wire (72) for electrical contacting of at least one electronic component (30) in the inner space (14) of the housing (12). The wires (46, 72) extend from the inner space (14) through each of the recesses (18, 20), and form a respective barb (74) outside of the recesses (18, 20), which are hooked in the housing (12). The wires (46, 72) are clamped between the zigzag-shaped outer surfaces (56) of the corresponding plug (22, 24) and the walls of the corresponding recess (18, 20).
