Title (EN) SWIVELING ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR ELECTRIQUE PIVOTANT
Abstract:
(EN) A swiveling electrical connector (fig. 2) is described which includes a male assembly (100) and a female assembly (120) having a receptacle (158) for receiving the male assembly. A locking mechanism coupled to the female assembly locks the male and female assemblies together when the male assembly is inserted into the female assembly thereby providing electrical contact between conductors (106, 108, 110) in the male assembly and corresponding conductors (124, 126, 134) in the female assembly. The locking mechanism is operable to facilitate a quick release of the male assembly from the female assembly. The male and female assemblies rotate relative to each other when locked together.
(FR) L'invention concerne un connecteur électrique pivotant (fig.2) qui comporte un ensemble mâle (100) et un ensemble femelle (120) doté d'un réceptacle pour recevoir l'ensemble mâle. Un mécanisme de verrouillage accouplé à l'ensemble femelle verrouille ensemble les ensembles mâle et femelle, ce qui permet d'assurer le contact électrique entre les conducteurs (106, 108, 110) de l'ensemble mâle et les conducteurs correspondants (124, 126, 134) de l'ensemble femelle. Le mécanisme de verrouillage facilite le désaccouplement rapide de l'ensemble mâle de l'ensemble femelle. Les ensembles mâle et femelle tournent l'un par rapport à l'autre lorsqu'ils sont verrouillés ensemble.
