Title (EN) SEALED ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR ELECTRIQUE HERMETIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An electrical connector (10) is composed of a main body (11, 12) mounting an electrical socket (26) and a cover (13) pivotably mounted to the main body (1, 12) and capable of closing off the interior region of the connector in the vicinity of the socket from the surroundings. The cover (13) and the main body (11, 12) have complementary tapered mating regions (22, 33, 35) opposite the pivot joint (46, 45) resembling a fish tail. The mating region of the cover (13) has a pair of cantilevered resilient arms (41) with apertures (43) which interengage as a snap-fit with detents (31) set in recesses (30) in the mating region of the main body. To release the arms (41) they can be gripped from the sides between a thumb and a first finger and squeezed together. Elastomeric sealing members (28, 36) are mounted into the mating regions of the cover and the main body to trap and seal around a cable of a plug filled into the socket when the cover is closed and a further seal (27) serves to seal the rim of the cover (13) to the main body.
(FR) Connecteur électrique (10) constitué d'un corps principal (11, 12) monté sur une prise électrique (26) et d'un couvercle (13) fixé pivotant au corps principal (11, 12) et pouvant isoler de l'environnement la région interne du connecteur avoisinant la prise femelle. Le couvercle (13) et le corps principal (11, 12) possèdent des régions d'accouplement coniques complémentaires (22, 23, 35) opposées au joint pivot (46, 45) ressemblant à une queue de poisson. La région d'accouplement du couvercle (13) possède une paire de bras résilients en porte à faux (41) pourvus d'ouvertures qui s'accrochent par déclic à des ergots (31) placés dans des évidements (30) de la région d'accouplement du corps principal. Pour dégager les bras (41), il suffit de les prendre de chaque côté entre le pouce et un premier doigt et des les presser l'un contre l'autre. Des éléments d'étanchéité élastomères (28, 36) sont fixés dans les régions d'accouplement du couvercle et du corps principal pour enserrer hermétiquement un câble d'une prise mâle enfiché dans la prise femelle lorsque le couvercle est fermé, et un autre joint (27) sert à étanchéifier le bord du couvercle (13) contre le corps principal.
