Title
(EN) INTERFACE CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR D'INTERFACE
Abstract
(EN) A novel interface connector for electrically interconnecting input (15) and output (11) cables which are terminated with multiple contact element, separable electrical connectors (12 and 16). The interface finds particular use where the input (15) and output (11) cables are terminated with dissimilar or nonmating connectors. The novel interface of the invention employs internal printed circuitry (20), rather than hard wiring. A separable electrical connector which has at least one resilient electrical contact (22') having a generally bowed or arched portion (54) intermediate its two ends (55 and 56) is also included. The two ends (55 and 56) of the contact element (22') are retained against a backer surface in the connector housing so that the contact functions as a doubly supported beam structure. A forward end of the contact is protected from mechanical damage by a shroud (58).
(FR) Un nouveau connecteur d'interface permet de connecter électriquement entre eux des câbles d'entrée (15) et de sortie (11) qui se terminent par des connecteurs électriques séparables à éléments multiples de contact (12 et 16). L'interface trouve application en particulier lorsque les câbles d'entrée (15) et de sortie (11) se terminent avec des connecteurs dissemblables ou ne correspondant pas. La nouvelle interface de l'invention utilise un circuit imprimé interne (20) au lieu d'un câblage. Un connecteur électrique séparable qui possède au moins un contact électrique résilient (22') ayant une partie généralement arquée ou voûtée (54) entre ses deux extrémités (55 et 56) est également inclu. Les deux extrémités (55 et 56) de l'élément de contact (22') sont retenues contre une surface d'appui dans le logement du connecteur de sorte que le contact fonctionne comme une structure à poutre à double support. Une extrémité antérieure du contact est protégée contre les dégâts mécaniques par une enveloppe (58).
