Title: MULTI-CONDUCTOR CABLE OF REDUCED DIAMETER AND CONTACT APPARATUS FOR IT
Abstract:
The invention proposes an electrical multi-conductor cable (10) comprising a plug-in connector (26), in particular a line with a charging plug for electric vehicles. The cable (10) has a central cable core, a number of conductors (11, 12, 13) which are arranged concentrically in relation to one another in a ring around the cable core and are composed of individual wires, and in each case one insulation (14) between the conductors. According to the invention, the contact apparatus has two clamping shell parts (21A, 21B) which, on the inner side thereof, have a plurality of receptacles (22-1, 22-2, 22-3) which are radially stepped from one another. In each case one contact body (23-1, 23-2, 23-3) is received in the receptacles of a clamping shell part and makes contact with one of the concentric conductors (11, 12, 13). Each contact body (23-1, 23-2, 23-3) has a channel shape (24) with a longitudinal extent and a curved cross-sectional profile around an associated conductor. A closure (27, 28) connects the clamping shell parts and fastens said clamping shell parts in the closed position, wherein the clamping shell parts coaxially hold the contact bodies (23-1, 23-2, 23-3) and press each contact body (23-1, 23-2, 23-3) against the respectively associated concentric conductor (11, 12, 13) for contact-making purposes.
