Abstract

A connector system includes a first connector assembly (20;58) that is electrically connected to wiring on a first printed wiring board (26; 54) and a second connector (30; 46) assembly that is electrically connected to wiring on a second printed wiring board (28; 38). Each connector assembly includes a number of connector modules (12) that are joined together in a predetermined array such as a row. In one of the connector assemblies, the row also includes one or more actuation modules (24; 62). The actuation module or modules are engaged by an actuator mechanism (32; 66) to force the connector assemblies into mating engagement or to draw them apart.
