Abstract

A contact pin designed as a dowel is used as an electrical connector which is led through a wall, for example, the wall of an instrument housing, or a board carrying electrical components. The contact pin has both a dowel and a crimp function, and is particularly suitable for miniature connectors of integrated circuit boards.
