  • Patent number: 6935906
    Abstract: An electric connector using a probe-type contact(s) is provided to prevent it from having contact failure and is characterized in that it comprises a housing having at least one through hole, a probe-type contact(s) inserted into the through hole(s), and a terminal portion(s) connected to the probe-type contact(s). In the probe-type contact, a pin-shaped contact(s) is housed in a conductive tubular body in such manner that the contact is energized to move freely by a spring. The tip of the pin-shaped contact is tilted upward at a predetermined angle in a horizontal direction, and is installed into the through hole so as to protrude from the front wall surface of the housing.
    Type: Grant
