Title: ELECTRONIC MODULE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an explosion-proof electronic module (1) having a fast interface, and to a method for establishing electronic contact with said electronic module (1) via said interface. For this purpose, in addition to an electronic component (11), it comprises at least one electrical contact surface (12) for establishing electrical contact with said component (11), and also comprises an enclosure (13), which encloses at least the at least one electrical contact surface (12). The enclosure (13) here is configured, at least in a sub-region (131), such that contact can be established with the at least one contact surface (12) by means of at least one electrical contact pin (2), wherein the enclosure (13) is filled with an encapsulating compound (14) at least between the at least one contact surface (12) and the sub-region (131). Therefore, the one or more electrical contact surfaces (12) give rise, according to the invention, to a physical interface to the electronic module (1) which, while not being subjected to the restrictions in respect of the explosion-protection-induced maximum transmission speed, can nevertheless provide explosion protection because it is reclosed by the self-reclosing encapsulating compound (14) once the contact pin (2) has been removed.
