Title
(EN) ELECTRICAL POWER CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR D'ALIMENTATION ELECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
An electrical power connector having a housing (32) that substantially surrounds a mounting body (1). The mounting end (57) of the mounting body (1) extends beyond the end (37) of the housing (32) so that when the electrical connector is mounted on a back plane there is a gap between the end (37) of the housing (32) and the back plane which allows the electrical power connector freedom to pivot with respect to the back plane so as to accommodate misalignment between the electrical power connector and its mating connector (28) and to provide a better electrical connection. An electrically conducting arm (90) is also provided that can be inserted into the mounting body (1) of the electrical power connector to convert the electrical power connector from a female connector to a male connector.
(FR)
Connecteur d'alimentation électrique comportant un boîtier (32) entourant sensiblement un corps de fixation (1) dont l'extrémité de fixation (57) s'étend au-delà de l'extrémité (37) du boîtier (32) de telle manière que lorsque le connecteur électrique est monté sur un plan arrière, il subsiste un espace entre l'extrémité (37) du boîtier (32) et le plan arrière, ce qui permet au connecteur d'alimentation électrique de pivoter librement par rapport au plan arrière pour tenir compte des défauts d'alignement entre ledit connecteur et la fiche correspondante (28), et d'améliorer la qualité de la connexion. Est également prévu un bras conducteur (90) s'insérant dans le corps de fixation (1) du connecteur femelle d'alimentation électrique pour le convertir en connecteur mâle.
