Title
(EN) SMART POWER CONNECTOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONNEXION ELECTRIQUE INTELLIGENT
Abstract
(EN)
An electrical connector (10) for use in a vehicular smart power multiplexing network (12) is disclosed. Smart power connectors (10) provide for connections between the power network (12) and the various peripheral devices and components in a vehicle. The connector (10) is comprised of two body portions (40, 42) which are electrically coupled when closed. The first body portion (40) includes three connectors (44, 46, 48) for electrical connection to the power network (12) and the peripheral devices and components. The second body portion (42) includes the smart power circuit (19) and heat sink (80) for dissipating heat generated by the power stage components (22). The smart power connector (10) also has diagnostic capabilities for detecting device and component load failures.

Dispositif de connexion électrique intelligent (10) pour réseau multiplex de courant de véhicules (12). Lesdits raccords électriques (10) permettent de connecter le réseau d'alimentation (12) et les divers dispositifs et composants périphériques dans un véhicule. Le raccord (10) comprend deux éléments de corps (40, 42) qui, lorsque fermés, sont électriquement couplés. Le premier élément de corps (40) est pourvu de trois connexions (44, 46, 48) qui assurent la liaison électrique avec le réseau d'alimentation (12) et les dispositifs et composants périphériques. Le second élément de corps (42) comprend le circuit d'alimentation intelligent (19) et un dissipateur thermique (80) qui dissipe la chaleur produite par les composants de l'étage d'alimentation (22). Le raccord décrit ici (10) peut également servir de système de diagnostic pour repérer les pannes sous charge des dispositifs ou composants.
