  • Publication number: 20200347668
    Abstract: An insulating glazing includes a first pane having on an inner-side surface a coating and two busbars for contacting the coating, a second pane, a spacer, which extends peripherally around the first and second panes, two pane contact surfaces, a glazing interior surface, and an outer surface, wherein the first and second pane rest, respectively, against a first and a second pane contact surface of the spacer, an interior, which is enclosed between the first and the second pane, an outer interpane space adjacent the outer surface, in which an outer seal is inserted, and an electrical connection element for electrically contacting the coating having an outer and an inner end, whose outer end protrudes from the outer seal. The inner end of the connection element and one busbar are electrically connected and are arranged between the spacer and the first pane outside the interior formed peripherally by the spacer.

  • Patent number: 10253549
    Abstract: An insulated glazing unit can include a spacer frame disposed between a first substrate from a second substrate and forming a portion of a sealed boundary and a flexible circuit extending through the sealed boundary. In an embodiment, the flexible circuit includes a flexible ribbon having a total length, LA, and an effective length, LE, and wherein LE is less than LA. In another embodiment, the flexible circuit includes an expandable portion adapted to expand a length of the flexible circuit to accommodate: relative movement between two or more portions of the insulated glazing unit, resizing of one or more portions of the insulated glazing unit, or any combination thereof.
