Title (EN) ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR ELECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An electrical connector provides an easy and reliable connection with printed circuit boards and flexible printed circuits. Electrical connector (10) for interconnection with electrical circuit boards has a mounting member (53) extending from a mounting surface (55) having projections (54) protruding sidewise therefrom. The printed circuit board (100) has an opening (110) with wide sections (120a, 120b) and narrow sections (130a, 130b). The electrical connector (10) is first installed on the printed circuit board (100) so that the projections (54) pass through the wide sections (120a, 120b) of the opening (110). At this time the mounting surface (55) of the electrical connector (10) is adjacent the surface of the printed circuit board (100). Thereafter, the electrical connector (10) is slid along the opening (110), thereby forming interconnection between electrical contacts (20) and corresponding conductive pads (150) on the printed circuit board. In this position, the projections (54) engage against the narrow sections (130a, 130b) of the printed circuit board (100), thereby preventing the electrical connector from disconnecting from the printed circuit board.
(FR) Un connecteur électrique permet d'assurer une connexion facile et fiable avec des cartes de circuits imprimés et des circuits imprimés souples. Ledit connecteur électrique (10) permettant d'assurer l'interconnexion avec des cartes de circuits électriques présente un élément de support (53) s'étendant depuis une surface de support (55) dotée de saillies (54) dépassant latéralement de celle-ci. La carte de circuits imprimés (100) comporte une ouverture (110) à sections larges (120a, 120b) et à sections étroites (130a, 130b). On installe d'abord le connecteur électrique (10) sur la carte de circuits imprimés (100) de sorte que les saillies (54) passent à travers les sections larges (120a, 120b) de l'ouverture (110). La surface de support (55) du connecteur (10) est alors adjacente à la surface de la carte de circuits imprimés (100). On fait ensuite glisser le connecteur électrique (10) le long de l'ouverture (110), pour former ainsi une interconnexion entre les contacts électriques et les plages de connexion correspondantes (150) de la carte de circuits imprimés. Dans cette positions, les saillies (54) viennent contre les sections étroites (130a, 130b) de la carte de circuits imprimés (100), ce qui empêche le connecteur électrique de se déconnecter de ladite carte.
