Abstract
(EN)
A connector to easily and correctly join an electrical component to a printed circuit board is provided. The connector comprises a generally C-shaped electrically conductive element that provides for connection alternatively to the positive and negative terminals of a device depending on the orientation of the connector. In this way, one connector is made that can be used to alternatively satisfy connection to both positive and negative terminals and thereby simplify the construction of the element. Because of the shapes of the ends of the connector, a device can only be plugged in one way. The connector can be made from a single sheet of electrically conductive material bent generally into a "C" shape, with specific tabs and cuts made therein. The connector includes a tab that allows for quick and automated connection to a printed circuit board, and an element to prevent connectors from interlocking while in a loose and unconnected state as, during manufacturing, plating, or storage, allowing them to be added to a board using automated procedures for quick, accurate and low cost construction.

L'invention concerne un connecteur permettant de joindre facilement et correctement un composant électrique à une carte de circuit imprimé. Le connecteur comprend un élément électriquement conducteur généralement en forme de C qui permet une connexion en alternance aux bornes positive et négative d'un dispositif en fonction de l'orientation du connecteur. De cette manière, un connecteur peut être utilisé pour satisfaire alternativement une connexion à la fois à des bornes positives et négatives et ainsi simplifier la construction de l'élément. Du fait des formes des extrémités du connecteur, un dispositif ne peut être obturé que d'une manière. Le connecteur peut être réalisé à partir d'une seule feuille de matériau électriquement conducteur pliée généralement en une forme en " C ", avec des languettes spécifiques et des découpes réalisées à l'intérieur de celle-ci. Le connecteur comprend une languette qui permet une connexion rapide et automatisée à une carte de circuit imprimé, et un élément pour empêcher des connecteurs de s'imbriquer tout en étant dans un état lâche et non connecté, pendant la fabrication, le placage ou le stockage, leur permettant d'être ajoutés à une carte à l'aide de procédures automatisées pour une construction rapide, précise et à faible coût.
