Abstract

Terminal 1 has shank 2 that extends through sleeve 3 in a multilayer printed circuit board 4 and is connected at its lower end to wire lead 5. The upper end of terminal 1 is welded to terminal 6 of module 7 and comprises a stack of contact lands 8. Each land has a broad body connected to an adjacent land by a necked down section 9 that can be broken, as by manually flexing each land. Thus, module 7 can be removed by breaking off the uppermost land 8, to which its terminal is welded, and a new module can be mounted by connecting its terminal to the new upper land.
