Title: MODULAR SYSTEM FOR PLUG CONNECTOR MODULES, PLUG CONNECTOR UNIT, AND MODULAR HOUSING FRAME FOR SAME
Abstract:
The invention relates to a modular system for plug connector modules for producing plug connector units, and to at least one first housing frame (211) for receiving a plurality of plug connector modules (18) within the housing frame (211). Each housing frame (211) has two parallel longitudinal side walls (214), which define the frame width (B) of the housing frame, and perpendicularly thereto two parallel narrow side walls (216), which define the frame height (H) of the housing frame. According to the invention: i) the frame width (B) is an integer multiple of the frame height (H), optionally plus joint play; ii) the longitudinal side walls (214) and the narrow side walls (216) have connection elements (220A, 220B) for form-fitting connection, wherein in each case a connection element (220A, 220B) of a longitudinal side wall (214) corresponds to a connection element (220A, 220B) of a narrow side wall (16; 216); and iii) on each longitudinal side wall (216) a plurality of connection elements (220A, 220B) are arranged at a grid distance (R) which corresponds to the frame height (H), optionally plus joint play, along the frame width (B). A plurality of housing frames (211) can thus be connected to one another in a modular manner on the basis of their connection elements (220A, 220B) so as to form a plug connector unit (210).
