Patent Number: 6,254,412

Title: Connector

Abstract: An electrical connecting configuration is able to accommodate large variations in assembly tolerances. Terminal fittings 35 are composed of electrically conductive fixed terminals 36, these fixed terminals 36 being fixed to electric wires 32 and being fixed on a connector unit 20, and movable terminals 37. The movable terminals 37 maintain a contacting state with the fixed terminals 36 and being capable of moving in a direction perpendicular to a direction of joining of two units 10 and 20. If terminal members 16 and the terminal fittings 35 show a dislocation in position when the two units 10 and 20 are to be joined together, the terminals 37 within the terminal fittings 35 change position, thereby absorbing the dislocation in position and allowing the terminal members 16 to fit without hindrance.
