Abstract

Double beam contacts 3 are soldered to plated through holes 2 of circuit board 1. The free ends 4 of double beam contacts 3 penetrate openings 5 of housing base 6 and openings 7, 8 of grid plates 10, 11 loosely inserted into housing base 6. Signal pins 12 of module 13 are inserted into opened double beam contacts 3. The two grid plates 10, 11 can be laterally shifted relative to each other by eccentric drives 14, ]5, so that the walls of their openings 7, 8 press against double beam contacts 3, and signal pins 12 are contacted. Module 13 can be detached from housing base 6, and the latter can be lifted from circuit board 1, so that the circuit board lines between the individual double beam contacts 3 can be accessed.
