Abstract

See full text

The invention relates to a contact carrier for a plug connector, in particular for a PCB plug connector. The contact carrier comprises a carrier body formed of a plastic material, and a plurality of contacts which are accommodated in the carrier body. Each of the contacts have two plug-in portions and one transition portion located between the two plug-in portions. The transition portions are exposed at least in part and the carrier body is provided with thermally conductive webs which are located between the transition portions and adjoin the latter.
