A metal coating is plated on the contact portion and is made of a chromium-carbon material, so that the contact portion has desirable electric conductivity and strong hardness, and has desirable corrosion resistance. Hence, a manufacturing process of the terminal uses a common chromium-carbon material to form the metal coating to replace a gold conductive layer, thereby reducing the manufacturing cost of the terminal. Further, it is unnecessary to use toxic substances during plating, which greatly reduces environmental pollution, and effectively protects the environment.

    Abstract: A solderable electric connector formed of a metal sheet as a single body includes a flat bottom portion soldered to a conductive pattern of a printed circuit board (PCB), an elastic fastening portion bent and extended from one end of the bottom portion in a longitudinal direction thereof, and a first housing vertically bent and extended from one end of the bottom portion in a width direction and surrounding the elastic fastening portion. Herein, a front end of the first housing is vertically bent downwards and forms a supporting plate and a penetration hole is formed in a certain location on the supporting plate. Also, a pressurizing projection projects from a top surface of the elastic fastening portion and a metal core of a wire passing through the penetration hole is pressurized between the pressurizing projection and a bottom surface of the first housing and coupled therewith.

  • Publication number: 20150072544
    Abstract: A coaxial connector for a mating device to be inserted therein, includes an insulating body having a sustaining portion, a static terminal having a first contact portion, and a movable terminal having a second contact portion for contacting the first contact portion. The sustaining portion and an object below have a gap therebetween. The static terminal and the movable terminal are fixed to the insulating body. An elastic arm is formed by extending from the second contact portion. The sustaining portion engages the elastic arm. When the mating device is inserted into the coaxial connector, the mating device presses the elastic arm downwards, the second contact portion moves downwards to be separated from the first contact portion, and the elastic arm drives the sustaining portion to move downwards together, such that the sustaining portion butts against the object below to prevent the movable terminal from moving downwards excessively.

  • Patent number: 8974237
    Abstract: An electrical plug connector with an insulating body that holds at least one metallic plug part that comprises at least one solder connection element that can be soldered to a circuit board, and at least one plug connection element for a matching plug part, both of which are connected with each other via a central piece of the plug connection element. The solder connection element may be connected via a tolerance compensation part with the central piece of the plug part, or directly with the plug connection element, in such a way that, relative to the position of the solder connection element—with the solder connection element soldered to the circuit board—the position of the plug connection element can be changed in any direction, parallel to the plane of the circuit board. In addition, the invention relates to a plug connector assembly.
