  • Patent number: 4679878
    Abstract: An insulation-piercing contact for terminating solid or stranded conductors in a modular plug connector, includes a flat body portion and first and second longitudinally spaced insulation-piercing tines, each of which has an inner surface adapted to electrically engage a respective conductor situated in a corresponding channel formed in the connector housing. The tines are transversely offset with respect to each other so that their inner surfaces are mutually spaced in a transverse plane through the contact a distance less than the maximum transverse dimension of the conductor. The distance between the inner surface of each tine end and an opposed partition wall of a respective channel in the modular plug connector housing in which the conductor is situated is preferably less than the sum of the diameter of the conductor and the thickness of the insulation surrounding the same.
