Title
(EN) PCB BLADE CONNECTOR SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME DE CONNECTEUR A LAME PCB ET PROCEDE
Abstract
(EN)
The connector between the patient electrode pads and the base unit of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) system can be formed by capturing a printed circuit board (PCB) within a connector housing. The PCB can have conductive metal traces that serve as the contact points between the wires from the patient electrodes and the electronics within the AED base unit. The PCB in combination with the conductive metal traces can be shaped similar to a conventional two-prong or two-blade connector. Employing such a PCB-based connector may result in AED pads which are less complex and less costly to manufacture. The PCB can also support a configuration circuit that is positioned between the conductive metal traces and that allows the AED to read and store information about the attached pads. For example, the AED can use this data storage feature to check the expiration date of the pads.
(FR)
Le connecteur entre les plaquettes d'électrode d'un patient et l'unité de base d'un système défibrillateur externe automatique (AED) peut être formé par capture d'une carte de circuits imprimés (PCB) à l'intérieur du logement d'un connecteur. La PCB peut comporter des traces de métal conducteur servant de points de contact entre les fils provenant des électrodes du patient et l'électronique à l'intérieur de l'unité de base du AED. La PCB, en association avec les traces de métal conducteur, peut avoir une forme similaire à celle d'un connecteur classique à deux dents ou deux lames. L'utilisation d'un connecteur à PCB permet de former des plaquettes AED moins complexes et moins coûteuses à fabriquer. La PCB peut également accepter un circuit de configuration positionné entre les traces de métal conducteur et ceci permet à l'AED de lire et de stocker des informations relatives aux plaquettes fixées. Par exemple, l'AED peut utiliser une fonction de stockage de données pour contrôler la date d'expiration des plaquettes.
