Electrical connectors – Interrelated connectors relatively movable during use – Movement about axis
An electrical connection is provided adapted to be mounted on the steering wheel of a motor vehicle, for example to establish a connection with an inflatable air bag disposed at the center of the steering wheel. The connection comprises a continuous sheathed flat cable, a central region of which is coiled into a large number of helical turns, so that the cable forms a flat spiral, with the flat cable being placed on edge, so that the plane of the cable is perpendicular to the plane of the flat spiral. The ends of the cable are bent to extend out of the plane of the spiral, substantially at right angles. These projecting ends of the flat cable are encased in an extra sheath of insulating material which extends along some of the cable at the ends of the spiral and along the whole length of the projecting end parts of the cable to provide additional tensile strength at the ends of the flat cable. The ends of the cable are provided with plug-and-socket connectors.
