Spring Contact Terminal (Screw less) for Electrical Accessories

  Fast and easy connection and assembly of electrical accessories  
  Patent application no. -  3165/MUM/2010  
  The accessories have terminals with spring comprising of a base connector fixed to the body and a connector that moves along vertical axis of base connector. The connectors have perpendicular holes to insert wire. A spring between two connectors pushes connectors away from each other creating pressure to hold the wire inserted in the horizontal holes

The moving connector is pressed so the perpendicular holes on both connectors are aligned and form a co-axial hole. Wire is inserted in the hole and connector is released. The spring pushes moving connector apart and wire is clamped between holes.

The moving connector has an insulating cap on top to allow the using terminal in live circuit.

This terminal needs less time to connect and also reduces possibility of loose connection of wires

When the shaft is set in motion, the two plates are pulled apart from each other due to centrifugal governors.
  Invention (What is New)  
  The connection type used in electrical accessories is normally screwing type connectors. These require more time and effort for assembly of electrical circuits and boards. The accessories with spring connectors show require less time and effort to connect and assemble the electrical circuit boards  
  Diagram & Description  
  The spring connectors are easy to connect wire. Press the connector cap (8), insert wire (7) and release cap.
