An object of the present invention is to provide an electrical terminal (10) having a simple structure connecting metal materials unsuitable as electrical terminal materials together. The electrical terminal (10) has a contact (20) and a coupling member (30). The contact (20) has a shape extending frontward and rearward. The contact (20) is made of a metal material unsuitable as an electrical terminal in itself, such as alumel or chromel. The coupling member (30) is fixed to the contact (20) by spot welding or the like. The coupling member (30) is made of a metal suitable as an electrical terminal material, such as a copper alloy. The coupling member (30) has an insertion opening (31), a spring portion (32), and a crimping portion (33). Through the insertion opening (31), a contact made of the same material of a mating electrical terminal is inserted. The mating contact inserted through the insertion opening (31) is pressed against the contact (20) by the spring portion (32). Also, the crimping portion (33) is crimped so that a core (51) of a compensating lead wire (50) is pressed into contact with the contact (20).

A connector includes: a base formed with slot; a conductive terminal held in the base, an upper portion of the conductive terminal being received in the slot of the base; an elastic clip each received in the slot of the base and mounted on the upper portion of the conductive terminal, each elastic clip being formed with an arc protrusion protruding outwardly; and a driving member each adapted to be inserted into the slot of the base to drive the elastic clip to move between a first position and a second position, each driving member being formed with a first recess and a second recess located above the first recess. When the arc protrusion is engaged with the first recess, the elastic clip is held in the first position, where an insertion space is defined between the elastic clip and the conductive terminal to receive a wire inserted therein; and when the arc protrusion is engaged with the second recess, the elastic clip is held in the second position, where the wire inserted into the insertion space is clamped between the elastic clip and the conductive terminal by the elastic clip. The electrical connection between the wire and the conductive terminal of the connector may be achieved only by inserting the driving member into the slot of the base, without requiring any other additional tools, improving wiring efficiency of the connector.

A peripheral wedge seal member (30) is provided for use with a plug connector housing and a receptacle connector housing. The peripheral wedge seal member (30) includes a deformable body (31) which has tapered walls (32) which extend from a thicker first end (34) to a less thick second end (36). Each of the walls (32) has a first surface (38) and a second surface (40) which is angled with respect to the first surfaces. Each of the walls (32) has a compliant section which absorbs forces transmitted by the plug connector housing, the receptacle connector housing or both. Each compliant section has at least one groove (42) extending along the first surface (38) and at least one support rib provided proximate the at least one groove (42).


Disclosed is a fiber optic splice protection device, comprising: a closure including a cover and a chassis; and at least one cable fixer for fixing cables to be spliced to the chassis of the closure. Wherein the cable fixer is a separate member separated from the chassis, and is removably mounted in the chassis of the closure; and all strength members of the cables to be spliced are previously fixed to the cable fixer before the cable fixer is mounted to the chassis of the closure. Therefore, it is possible that strength members of the cables to be spliced are once time secured to the chassis of the closure of the fiber optic splice protection device, so as to easy to implement rapid on-site installation. Further, the fiber optic splice protection device has higher mechanical strength.
