  • Patent number: 9379490
    Abstract: A plug for an electrical plug-type connector includes a plurality of plug contacts, which are electrically connected or connectable to a corresponding number of connecting elements, for example insulation displacement contacts, clamping contacts or possibly also soldered joints, each for connecting one electrical cable core. Per plug contact, one conductor is formed as a conductor track which is grown three-dimensionally on the surface of a plug body in the form of a cast plastics part and adheres there, and which both forms the plug contact and electrically connects the plug contact to the connecting element.

  • Publication number: 20150011206
    Abstract: A device for monitoring a distribution point in telecommunication networks, comprises a control unit, a battery, a communications unit, and at least one sensor. The communications unit is enabled to dispatch and receive symbol sequences via a mobile phoning network. The control unit and the communications unit are programmed to be, in a normal state, in a sleep mode. The control unit is further programmed to autonomously initiate, for an event detected by the at least one sensor, an alert of the communications unit, wherein the communications unit then proactively dispatches an alarm message via the mobile phoning network. The device is further programmed so that the communications unit is alerted at predetermined times, dispatches a status report and remains active for a predetermined time period to the purpose of receiving a programming message transmitted to the device via the mobile phoning network.

  • Publication number: 20140227894
    Abstract: A plug connection socket includes a plurality of resilient socket contacts which are exposed in a socket opening and with which corresponding plug contacts of a data plug can make contact at third contact points. The socket also has a first conductor track support with first conductor tracks which are in electrical contact with the socket contacts via first contact points and which have a compensation structure in order to compensate crosstalk. These first conductor tracks are situated in a contact supporting wall which runs axially parallel to the contacts and against which at least some of the socket contacts are pressed when a plug is inserted. Second contact points are present on a second conductor track support. In addition to the second contact points and suitable connection contacts for the conductive cores, the second conductor track support also has second conductor tracks which form a second crosstalk compensation structure.

  • Patent number: 8100701
    Abstract: A device which on the one side (socket side) includes a plug portion which may be inserted into the standardized plug socket. A plurality of chambers (15) is present on the other side (plug side), into which in each case a plug may be inserted. Moreover, the device has a plurality of adapter contacts which by way of introducing the plug portion into the socket, may be brought into electrical contact with the socket contacts. In each of the chambers, at least two of the adapter contacts are electrically conductively contactable by way of plug contacts of the introduced plugs. The chambers are at least partly present within the socket opening, i.e. the inserted plugs project into the socket opening, so that at least one piece of the plug lies within the socket opening.

  • Publication number: 20110317976
    Abstract: A duplex adapter or duplex adapter part for a duplex plug of an optical plug-in connection includes two pairs of plug openings which are aligned to one another and into which in each case a duplex plug may be introduced from oppositely lying sides. It is formed from a housing and at least one frame which is fastened or fastenable on the housing and which projects proximally from the housing. The frame surrounds the two plug openings of an adapter side and comprises a middle portion which extends between the plug openings. A safety device for the plug side and which matches this, includes a duplex plug or a clip for creating a duplex plug from two simplex plugs, as well as an actuator for simultaneously activating unlocking pawls of both plugs.

  • Patent number: 7857655
    Abstract: An insulation displacement contact (1) according to the invention essentially distinguishes itself in that as a whole it comprises a cutter section with two opposing contact blades (3.1, 3.2) together with two fork sections which contribute to a clamping force with which the two contact blades are pressed together as soon as a conductor is inserted between the contact blades and they are pushed away from one another. In the process one fork (4) exerts proximally (i.e. on the side, from which the conductor is inserted) and the other fork (5) distally (i.e. on the side opposite), such that the two contact blades are pushed together at four points. The fork sections are angled relative to the cutter section (3), i.e. they do not run in the same plane as the cutter section. The two fork sections each constitute an independent, elastic spring. This means that in they will be substantially elastically and not plastically deformed as a result of the moving-apart of the contact blades (3.1, 3.

  • Patent number: 7695196
    Abstract: An optical plug connector comprises a socket part, adapter part or coupling part with a socket housing for releasable connection to a plug part. An inside of the socket housing defines an inner space, into which a plug portion of the plug part may be introduced. Moreover, a switch device is present, by way of which a radiation power led to the plug part and/or the socket part, adapter part or coupling part (1) may be reduced or switched off when the plug connection is released. The switch device comprises a first element which is present or fastenable on the socket part, adapter part or coupling part, and a second element which is present or may be fastened on the plug part, wherein the switch device is actuated in that the first and the second element cooperate.
