  • Patent number: 4229061
    Abstract: An electrical adapter or connector (10) comprises a block of insulating material (12) and a plurality of moveable contact pins (16) which are positioned within recesss (14) found in the block. Each of the pins includes an upper mating electrical contact surface (18) and a screw (22) for conductively securing the pin to a wire (30). Springs (28) are loosely positioned at the bottom of each of the recesses in order to continuously bias the pins outwardly from the upper surface (15) of the insulating block. The pins are prevented from moving out of the recesses by set screws (32) placed within longitudinal bores (31) of the block or by attaching each spring at one end to the bottom of one recess and at its opposed end to the bottom of a contact pin. Each upper mating contact surface (18) is preferably conically shaped, so as to receive a mating contact pin (17) having a complimentary shaped conical surface (19) in aligned electrical engagement.
