  • Patent number: 7125284
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electrical connector for contacting at least one electrical lead and for connection with a complementary connector, to an electrical plug-in connection for connecting at least one electrical lead to an electronic component and to an assembly method for assembling such an electrical connector. In order to provide an electrical connector of the above type and an associated assembly method which ensures simple, inexpensive producibility on the one hand and robust and reliable contactability on the other hand, and which additionally enables the greatest possible miniaturization, the connector (100) comprises a housing (116), in which the contact element (120) is at least partially accommodated and on which there is arranged a terminal cover (118) for covering the terminal area (124), which cover comprises a first lid part (126) and a second lid part (128), which are so constructed that they may both be moved to expose the terminal area (124) during fitting of the electrical lead (104).
