An interconnector device for electrical conductors and compression assemblies therefor has a plurality of rigid electrically conductive rods, each rod being imbedded in a fixed cross-sectional plane of a dielectric, compressible core and projecting therefrom, whereupon application of an orthogonal compressive force will cause the rods to rotate relative to the core thereby causing the ends of the rods to move along two non-coincident lines of action to establish wiping electrical connection with the conductors.
