Title (EN) A PLUG AND SOCKET ASSEMBLY FOR REMOTE HANDLING
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE FICHE ET DOUILLE PERMETTANT UNE MANIPULATION A DISTANCE
Abstract:
(EN) A plug and socket assembly for remote handling and making and breaking a connection therebetween is described, the plug and socket assembly comprising a plug portion and a socket portion having mutual co-operating features to establish a connection therebetween; said plug portion and said socket portion having a substantially common connection making and breaking axis; at least one of said plug portion and said socket portion having a deflectable resilient biasing member which biases said plug portion or said socket portion towards said common making and breaking axis; and, handling means associated with the resilient biasing member remote from said plug or socket portion.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble de fiche et douille permettant une manipulation à distance ainsi qu'une mise en place et une rupture de connexion entre elles; l'ensemble de fiche et douille comprend une partie de fiche et une partie de douille présentant des caractéristiques de coopération permettant d'établir une connexion entre elles; la partie de fiche et la partie de douille présentent un axe de mise en place et de rupture de connexion essentiellement commun; au moins une des deux parties, la partie de fiche ou la partie de douille possède un élément de polarisation élastique pouvant être dévié, qui polarise la partie de fiche ou la partie de douille vers l'axe de mise en place et de rupture commun; et enfin, un dispositif de manipulation associé à l'élément de polarisation élastique à distance de la partie de fiche ou de douille.
