  • Publication number: 20200406843
    Abstract: A carrier structure for electrically insulating a first electrically conductive part and a second electrically conductive part includes a base body formed of an electrically insulating material and an electrically insulating spacer embedded in the base body in at least part of a separation region between the first electrically conductive part and the second electrically conductive part. The base body has a first holding structure holding the first electrically conductive part and a second holding structure holding the second electrically conductive part. The electrically insulating spacer has an intumescent material and/or a high temperature-resistant filler.

  • Patent number: 10840612
    Abstract: An electrical contact for forming a materially bonded, electrically conductive connection to a mating contact comprises a contact surface and a soldering body. The contact surface has a recess extending into the contact surface. The soldering body is formed of a hard solder material and is pressed into the recess. The soldering body protrudes out from the recess beyond the contact surface.

  • Publication number: 20200265970
    Abstract: A cable includes a cable core formed of an electrically conductive material and an insulation at least partially encasing the cable core. The cable core is exposed in a contact zone in which the cable contacts an electrical conductor. A surface of the contact zone is filled substantially flush with a cable surface of the insulation.

  • Patent number: 10381752
    Abstract: A module connector comprises a first connector including a first conductor attached to the first connector at a conductor point of the first connector and a second connector capable of being electrically connected with the first connector and including a second conductor attached to the second connector at a conductor point of the second connector. The first connector and the second connector each have an affixing element and a touch protection disposed on a connection side. The touch protection includes an outer electrically insulated collar and an electrically insulated protection pin surrounded by the collar. A current bridge is disposed between the collar and the protection pin and electrically connects the conductor point of the first connector with the conductor point of the second connector. The collar and the protection pin project beyond the current bridge.
