Title
(EN) MATE-ASSIST WITH AN OFF-CENTRE LEVER
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'AIDE AU BRANCHEMENT À LEVIER EXCENTRÉ
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a connector arrangement comprising a first connector housing (10) and a mateable second connector housing (40) as well as a lever (30) pivotably mountable to the first connector housing, which lever comprises two parallel arms (31) being connected by a handle member (33) to assist in the mating of the first and second connector housings. The lever arms (31) are provided each with a flange (32) at their free ends and the first connector housing comprises corresponding keyways (12) adapted to receive the flanges (32) to guide a rotational motion of the lever (30) with respect to the first connector housing (10). Grooves (34, 35) provided in the flanges (32) engage spigots (11, 41) provided respectively on the first and second connector housings for moving them in a mated or unmated positions.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un agencement de connecteur comprenant un premier boîtier de connecteur (10) et un second boîtier de connecteur pouvant être branché (40) ainsi qu'un levier (30) pouvant être monté de façon pivotante sur le premier boîtier de connecteur, lequel levier comprend deux bras parallèles (31) reliés par un élément de manche (33) pour aider au branchement des premier et second boîtiers de connecteur. Les bras de levier (31) comportent chacun un rebord (32) au niveau de leurs extrémités libres et le premier boîtier de connecteur comprend des rainures de clavette correspondantes (12) aptes à recevoir les rebords (32) pour guider un mouvement de rotation du levier (30) par rapport au premier boîtier de connecteur (10). Des rainures (34, 35) disposées dans les rebords (32) prennent appui sur des ergots (11, 41) disposés respectivement sur les premier et second boîtiers de connecteur pour les déplacer dans des positions branchée ou non branchée.
