Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DETECTING MOISTURE ON A CONNECTOR CONTACT
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME DE DÉTECTION D'HUMIDITÉ SUR UN CONTACT DE CONNECTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An electronic device comprising a connector including a plurality of contacts and a liquid detection module coupled to at least one contact in the plurality of contacts. The liquid detection module can be configured to generate and apply a time varying voltage or current to the at least one contact over a range of frequencies, measure complex impedance including phase and magnitude at the at least one contact, and determine whether liquid intrusion has occurred on the contacts based on previously measured signatures of phase and magnitude versus frequency.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif électronique qui comprend un connecteur comprenant une pluralité de contacts et un module de détection de liquide couplé à au moins un contact dans la pluralité de contacts. Le module de détection de liquide peut être configuré pour générer et appliquer une tension ou un courant variable dans le temps à l'au moins un contact sur une plage de fréquences, mesurer l'impédance complexe comprenant la phase et l'amplitude au niveau de l'au moins un contact, et déterminer si une intrusion de liquide s'est ou non produite sur les contacts sur la base de signatures précédemment mesurées de phase et d'amplitude en fonction de la fréquence.
