  • Publication number: 20220192025
    Abstract: The invention relates to a holder for a button cell, wherein the holder is intended to be fastened on a printed circuit board, wherein the holder has at least two first latching arms which protrude from the printed circuit board when the holder is in the mounted state, wherein the button cell is received between the first latching arms when the button cell is in the mounted state, wherein the first latching arms, at one end, are each connected to a main body which has a base area which is connected to the printed circuit board when the holder is in the mounted state, wherein the first latching arms each have at least one first latching lug in order to hold the button cell on the printed circuit board, and wherein the first latching lugs are arranged at a first distance from the base area of the main body.

  • Patent number: 11259416
    Abstract: A fitting element includes a first fitting section for connection with a spacer element, and a second arresting section for arresting with a circuit board. A central section is arranged between the fitting section and the arresting section and serves for forming a first stop for the spacer element, and a second stop for the circuit board. The fitting element is connected with an associated spacer element for forming a fitting device. The spacer element is fitted to a first circuit board. A second circuit board is then arrested with the fitting element. In this way two circuit boards can be connected with each other in a simple, flexible and automated way.

  • Patent number: 11057998
    Abstract: A method for the spaced connection of printed circuit boards is described. For this purpose, the printed circuit boards and at least one installation unit including one distance element and one laminar cover element, respectively, as well as one fixing element per installation unit are provided. The distance element is positioned and fixed on the first printed circuit board. Subsequently, the cover element is penetrated in the region of an intake opening of the distance element. The fixing element is inserted into the intake opening and connected with the second printed circuit board. Further on, an installation element and an installation assembly for the spaced connection of two printed circuit boards are described.
