Title (EN) ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR WITH RECORDABLE POSITION ASSURANCE
(FR) CONNECTEUR ÉLECTRIQUE À ASSURANCE DE POSITION ENREGISTRABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An electrical connector (102) with recordable position assurance includes a housing (118), an indicating feature (162), and a concealing feature (134). The housing is configured to engage a mating connector (104) during a mating operation. The indicating feature has a visual identifier disposed thereon. The indicating feature and the concealing feature are movable relative to each other between a concealed position and an exposed position. The concealing feature conceals at least a portion of the visual identifier in the concealed position. The visual identifier is exposed or exposable in the exposed position. The indicating feature is in the exposed position relative to the concealing feature when the housing is fully mated to the mating connector, and is in the concealed position relative to the concealing feature when the housing and mating connector are not fully mated.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un connecteur électrique (102) à assurance de position enregistrable, qui comprend un boîtier (118), un élément d'indication (162) et un élément de dissimulation (134). Le boîtier est configuré pour entrer en prise avec un connecteur homologue (104) pendant une opération d'accouplement. Un identificateur visuel est disposé sur l'élément d'indication. L'élément d'indication et l'élément de dissimulation sont déplaçables l'un par rapport à l'autre entre une position cachée et une position apparente. L'élément de dissimulation dissimule au moins une partie de l'identificateur visuel dans la position cachée. L'identificateur visuel est visible ou peut être rendu visible dans la position apparente. L'élément d'indication est dans la position apparente par rapport à l'élément de dissimulation quand le boîtier est complètement couplé au connecteur homologue, et est dans la position cachée par rapport à l'élément de dissimulation quand le boîtier et le connecteur homologue ne sont pas complètement couplés.
