Title
(DE) ANSCHLUSSKUPPLUNG FÜR PLATTENFÖRMIGE MIKROKOMPONENTEN
(EN) CONNECTION COUPLING FOR PLATE-SHAPED MICROCOMPONENTS
(FR) COUPLAGE DE RACCORDEMENT POUR MICROCOMPOSANTS PLATS
Abstract
(DE)
Eine Anschlußkupplung bildet einen Leitungsanschluß für flüssige oder gasförmige Stoffe an plättchenförmigen Mikrokomponenten (1). Ein im Querschnitt im wesentlichen U-förmiger Kupplungskörper (2) nimmt zwischen einer oberen Schenkelplatte (3), die den Leitungsabschluß (14) aufweist, und einer unteren Schenkelplatte (5), den Rand der plattenförmigen Mikrokomponente (1) auf. Ein Randsteg (6) bildet einen Queranschlag für eine Kante (8) der Mikrokomponente (1). Ein weiteres Anschlagmittel, bspw. eine Nase (9), bildet einen Längsanschlag zur Positionierung der Mikrokomponenten (1).
(EN)
The invention relates to a connection coupling which forms a line connection for liquid or gaseous materials on plate-shaped microcomponents (1). A coupling body (2) which has an essentially U-shaped cross-section accommodates the edge of the plate-shaped microcomponent (1) between an upper limb plate (3), said upper limb plated comprising the line connection (14), and a lower limb plate (5). An edge connecting element (6) forms a transversal stop for an edge (8) of the microcomponent (1). An additional stopping means, for example, a catch (9), forms a longitudinal stop for positioning the microcomponents (1).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un couplage de raccordement qui constitue, sur des microcomposants (1) en forme de plaquettes, un raccord de conduit pour des matériaux liquides ou gazeux. Un corps de couplage (2), ayant une section sensiblement en forme de U, reçoit le bord desdits microcomposants (1) entre une branche supérieure (3), portant ledit raccord de conduit (14), et une branche inférieure (5). Un élément de jonction marginal (6) constitue une butée transversale pour un bord (8) des microcomposants (1). Une autre butée, par exemple un cliquet (9), forme une butée longitudinale qui permet de positionner les microcomposants (1).
