Title (EN) PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD CARRIER INSERTION/EXTRACTION ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE INSERTION/EXTRACTION D'UNE PLAQUETTE DE CIRCUIT IMPRIME
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An assembly designed to increase the ease with which a printed circuit board carrier may be inserted or extracted from an enclosure. The assembly includes a movable lever mounted to the carrier and curved pin slot in the enclosure. A pin on the lever engages the curved pin slot. During insertion, the shape of the pin slot guides the carrier into its position, then the lever rotates to place the pin in a portion of the pin slot that is oriented in a substantially different direction from the direction of insertion, thus holding the carrier in place. During removal, the pin holds the carrier in place while the lever rotates away from the carrier and thus becomes accessible to permit removal of the carrier by pulling on the lever. Two assemblies, one on each side of the carrier, are typically used.
(FR)Cet ensemble est conçu pour faciliter encore plus l'insertion ou l'extraction, à partir d'une enceinte, d'un support de plaquette imprimé, et il comprend un levier mobile, monté sur le support, ainsi qu'une fente courbe, destinée à une broche, ménagée dans l'enceinte, et dans laquelle s'introduit une broche montée sur le levier. Lors de l'insertion du support, la forme de la fente guide le support afin de le mettre en place, puis le levier pivote pour placer la broche dans une portion de la fente qui est orientée dans un sens sensiblement différent du sens d'insertion, de manière à pouvoir maintenir en place le support. Lors de l'enlèvement du support, la broche maintient le support en place tandis que le levier s'éloigne par pivotement du support et devient donc accessible, permettant ainsi l'enlèvement du support par tirage sur le levier. De manière générale, on utilise deux ensembles, un de chaque côté du support.
