Title (EN) COUPLER FOR TELEPHONE CORDS
(FR) COUPLEUR POUR CABLES DE TELEPHONE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A coupler (30) for electrically connecting ends of telephone cords which have been terminated with modular plugs (24-24) includes a first portion (31) made of a dielectric material and having a plurality of compartments (45-45) which extend from end to end and which are formed between partitions (41-41), each of which has a centrally disposed bifurcated stem (46). A contact element (42) in the form of a wire having a linear portion (51) and two retroflexed end portions (52-52) is mounted in each compartment with each retroflexed end portion extending between adjacent furcations of the stems. A second portion (32) made of a dielectric material is joined to the first portion and includes an abutment (71) which extends between the furcations (47-47) of the first portion to stabilize the partitions. The second portion cooperates with the first portion to form a pair of back-to-back externally communicating cavities (60-60). Each cavity is adapted to receive a modular plug such that terminals (54-54) of the plug which is inserted into one of the cavities electrically engage associated retroflexed end portions of aligned contact elements between the partitions.
(FR)Coupleur (30) servant a connecter electriquement les extremites des cables de telephone termines par des fiches modulaires (24-24) comprenant une premiere partie (31) composee d"un materiau dielectrique et possedant une pluralite de compartiments (45-45) s"etendant d"une extremite a l"autre et formes entre les separations (41-41), chacune desquelles possede une tige bifurquee (46) disposee au centre. Un element de contact (42) ayant la forme d"un fil possedant une partie lineaire (51) et deux extremites retroflechies (52-52) est monte dans chaque compartiment, chaque extremite retroflechie s"etendant entre les bifurcations adjacentes des tiges. Une deuxieme partie (32) composee d"un materiau dielectrique est contigue a la premiere partie et comprend une butee (71) qui s"etend entre les bifurcations (47-47) de la premiere partie pour stabiliser les divisions. La deuxieme partie coopere avec la premiere partie pour former une paire de cavites (60-60) dos-a-dos qui communique exterieurement. Chaque cavite est adaptee pour recevoir une fiche modulaire de sorte que les terminaux (54-54) de la fiche qui est inseree dans l"une des cavites engage electriquement les parties retroflechies associees des elements alignes des contacts entre les separations.
