Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INSTALLING AN ASSURANCE CAP ONTO A FLUID CONNECTOR USING OPTICAL AND INDUCTION SENSORS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT D'INSTALLER UN CAPUCHON D'ASSURANCE SUR UN CONNECTEUR DE FLUIDE À L'AIDE DE CAPTEURS OPTIQUE ET D'INDUCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A fluid connector assembly comprises a tubular member (24), a fitting body (26) having a bore (40) for receiving the tubular member, a resilient clip (60) mounted on the body to lock the tubular member in the fitting body when the insertion end (22) of the tubular member is fully inserted into the bore in the housing, and an assurance cap (70) slidably mounted on the tubular member (24) to insure full insertion of the tubular member in the body. The assurance cap (70) defines a continuous annular body (72) with radially inward extending latch edges at an end of latch fingers configured for latching with an edge of a recessed latch groove formed in the fitting body (26) only when the tubular member is in the fully inserted position in the fitting body.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble connecteur de fluide qui comprend un élément tubulaire (24), un corps de raccord (26) ayant un alésage (40) destiné à recevoir l'élément tubulaire, une attache élastique (60) montée sur le corps pour verrouiller l'élément tubulaire dans le corps de raccord lorsque l'extrémité d'insertion (22) de l'élément tubulaire est complètement insérée dans l'alésage dans le boîtier, et un capuchon d'assurance (70) monté de manière coulissante sur l'élément tubulaire (24) pour assurer l'insertion complète de l'élément tubulaire dans le corps. Le capuchon d'assurance (70) définit un corps annulaire continu (72) ayant des bords de verrouillage s'étendant radialement vers l'intérieur au niveau d'une extrémité de doigts de verrouillage configurés de sorte à être verrouillés avec un bord d'une rainure de verrouillage en creux formée dans le corps de raccord (26) uniquement lorsque l'élément tubulaire se trouve dans la position complètement insérée dans le corps de raccord.
