Title (EN) ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR ÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An electrical cut-out comprises (in its first aspect) a base unit and a removable link unit, the base unit including at least two contacts each having a cable termination, the link unit being seatable on the base and including a conductor arranged to bridge the at least two contacts when the link unit is so seated, wherein the base unit and the link unit each comprise an eye for receiving a tamper-evident seal, at least one of the two eyes being defined by a first and second limbs projecting from a side face of the base unit and/or the link unit at spaced locations, the first limb having a substantially planar upper face and the second limb having a substantially planar lower face that is not below the substantially planar upper face of the first limb, the first and second limbs being joined at a location spaced from the side face thereby to define an eye. Thus, an eye to provide for the necessary security tag can be provided as part of an injection moulding arrangement with no re-entrant parts and no post-moulding fabrication steps. A modern injection mould employing one or more sliding members can create such a shape and permit its removal from the mould.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un interrupteur électrique qui comporte (sous son premier aspect) une unité de base et une unité de liaison amovible, l'unité de base comprenant au moins deux contacts ayant chacun une terminaison de câble, l'unité de liaison pouvant être assise sur la base et comprenant un conducteur agencé pour ponter au moins deux contacts lorsque l'unité de liaison est ainsi assise, l'unité de base et l'unité de liaison comportant chacune un œil pour recevoir un dispositif inviolable, au moins un des deux yeux étant défini par une première et une seconde branche dépassant d'une face latérale de l'unité de base et/ou de l'unité de liaison à des emplacements espacés, la première branche ayant une face supérieure sensiblement plane et la seconde branche ayant une face inférieure sensiblement plane qui ne se trouve pas au-dessous de la face supérieure sensiblement plane de la première branche, la première et la seconde branche étant jointes à un emplacement espacé de la face latérale pour ainsi définir un œil. Un œil peut donc être formé, en tant que partie d'un agencement de moulage par injection sans partie rentrante et sans étape de fabrication post-moulage, afin de loger l'étiquette de sécurité nécessaire. Un moule d'injection moderne employant un ou plusieurs éléments coulissants peut créer une telle forme et permettre son enlèvement du moule.
