What is claimed is:

1. A method for joining an electrical terminal pre-populated in a contact carrier and an electrical conductor, the method comprising:

arranging a connection portion of the electrical conductor at a receiving section of the electrical terminal pre-populated in the contact carrier;

arranging at least two electrodes on one or more sides of the receiving section of the electrical terminal pre-populated in the contact carrier receiving the connection portion of the electrical conductor; and

fusing the connection portion of the electrical conductor and the receiving section of the electrical terminal pre-populated in the contact carrier by using the electrodes to join the electrical conductor and the electrical terminal pre-populated in the contact carrier.

2. A method for joining a plurality of electrical conductors and a set of electrical terminals pre-populated in a contact carrier, the method comprising:

a) arranging a connection portion of a first electrical conductor of the plurality of electrical conductors at a first receiving section of a first electrical terminal of the set of electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier;

b) arranging at least two electrodes on one or more sides of the first receiving section of the first electrical terminal receiving the connection portion of the first electrical conductor;

c) fusing the connection portion of the first electrical conductor and the first receiving section of the first electrical terminal pre-populated in the contact carrier by using the electrodes to join the first electrical conductor and the first electrical terminal;

d) arranging the connection portion of a second electrical conductor of the plurality of electrical conductors at a receiving section of a second electrical terminal of the set of electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier;

e) positioning the contact carrier such as to allow the engagement of the electrodes to the second receiving section of the contact carrier;

f) arranging the two electrodes on one or more sides of the second receiving section of the second electrical terminal receiving the connection portion of the second electrical conductor; and

g) fusing the connection portion of the second electrical conductor and the receiving section of the second electrical terminal by using the electrodes to join the second electrical conductor and the second electrical terminal.

3. The method according to claim 2, wherein the method is adapted to join more than two electrical conductors of the plurality electrical conductors and the set of electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier, wherein the contact carrier contains one electrical terminal of the set of electrical terminals with a receiving section for each of the electrical conductors of the plurality of electrical conductors, and wherein steps d) through g) are repeated for each respective one of the more than two electrical conductors to be joined.

4. The method according to claim 2, wherein the electrical conductor or the plurality of electrical conductors, respectively, form part of an electrical cable, and wherein the plurality of electrical conductors are at least partly electrically isolated with respect to each other.

5. The method according to claim 2, wherein the connection portion of the first electrical conductor is arranged at the receiving section of the contact carrier so as to establish an electrical contact between the connection portion of the first electrical conductor and the receiving section of one of the electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier.

6. The method according to claim 2, wherein the connection portion of the electrical conductor is positioned at the receiving section of one of the electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier along a longitudinal axis of the contact carrier.

7. The method according to claim 6, wherein rearranging the contact carrier in step f) comprises rotating the contact carrier at a predetermined angle around the longitudinal axis of the contact carrier.

8. A fusing device for joining a plurality electrical conductors and a set of electrical terminals pre-populated in a contact carrier, the fusing device comprising:

a support unit configured to receive the contact carrier so as to allow positioning a connection portion of each of at least a first and a second electrical conductor of the plurality of electrical conductors aligned with at least a first and a second receiving section of the set of electrical terminals, respectively;

at least two electrodes configured to engage with one or more sides of the first receiving section of the set of electrical receiving the connection portion of the first electrical conductor for fusing the connection portion of the first electrical conductor and the first receiving section of the set of electrical terminals to join the electrical conductor and least one of the electrical terminals of the set of electrical terminals;

wherein the support unit is configured to position the contact carrier so as to allow the electrodes engagement to the second receiving section of the set of electrical terminals to allow the electrodes being engaged on one or more sides of the second receiving section of the set of electrical terminals receiving the connection portion of the second electrical conductor for fusing the connection portion of the second electrical conductor and the second receiving section of the set of electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier by using the electrodes to join the second electrical conductor and at least one electrical terminal of the set of electrical terminals.

9. The fusing device according to claim 8, further comprising a cable fixturing unit configured to automatically arrange the connection portion of the first and/or the second electrical conductor of the plurality of electrical conductors at the first or the second receiving section of the set of electrical terminals pre-populated in the contact carrier.

10. The fusing device according to claim 8, wherein the support unit is configured to manually or automatically rotate the contact carrier along a longitudinal axis of the contact carrier and/or to translate the contact carrier at least in a plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the contact carrier.
