  • Patent number: 10707634
    Abstract: A method for producing a soldered connection between at least two components is provided, in which the components are heated for melting a solder in a soldering area. The heating of the soldering area and/or the supply of solder to the soldering area is realized depending on the temperature which is determined by non-contact detection of heat radiation emitted from at least one temperature measurement zone of one of the components. In order to improve the method such that the emissivity of the at least one temperature measurement zone can be increased with high process reliability and with at most a slight adverse effect on the electrical connection between the electrical components, it is proposed that the at least one temperature measurement zone be locally heated for increasing its emissivity. Furthermore, an electrical plug-in connector for producing a soldered connection and use of such a plug-in connector are proposed.

  • Patent number: 8734179
    Abstract: A cable connector and a manufacturing method thereof. The method includes: providing an insulation body, putting a terminal that has a receiving portion into the insulation body, preparing at least one groove on a cable, in which the cable has a first part inserted in the insulation body and a second part extending out of the insulation body, and the groove is provided on the first part, pressing the cable, so that a side edge of the receiving portion pierces the cable at the groove, thereby electrically connecting the terminal and an inner conductor of the cable. The groove enables the terminal to pierce the cable easily, implementing desirable electrical connection between the inner conductor and the terminal, and also stops the cable in the extending direction of the cable, preventing the cable from escaping.

  • Patent number: 8641447
    Abstract: A coaxial connector includes a center contact electrically connected to a conductor of a cable. The center contact extends along a contact axis oriented generally perpendicular to an axis of the conductor of the cable. An outer contact has a cavity and the center contact is disposed in the cavity. The outer contact has a separable interface end and a terminating end. The separable interface end and terminating end are oriented generally perpendicular to one another. A dielectric insert is received in the cavity. The dielectric insert has a bore that receives and holds the center contact. The dielectric insert has structural features extending axially along an exterior of the dielectric insert, with air gaps defined between the structural features. The structural features engage the outer contact to secure the dielectric insert in the cavity.
