Abstract

1,177,193. Two-part couplings. AMP Inc. 20 June, 1968 [14 July, 1967], No. 29460/68. Heading H2E. A printed circuit edge connector comprises an insulating housing H fitted with a plurality of contact elements EC. Each contact element EC is stamped from stock sheet metal and is in the form of a flat body portion 7 housing a conductor-engaging portion 6 and a pair of arms 11 having at their free ends contact portions 12, normal to the plane of the body, of width at least three times the thickness of the stock metal. The contact portions are arcuate in cross-section and inside elevation, and are gold-plated. The arms 11 are provided with lugs 13 near the contact portions to allow easy insertion of the element into the housing. A resilient tongue 10 locates in a recess 4 in the housing and flanges 8 on body 7 abut projections 3 in the passageway 1 of the housing to secure the elements in place. Alternatively, the element may be provided with a single projection (15, Fig. 5, not shown), allowing the element to be force-fitted in the housing. The conductor-connecting portion 6 may be in the form of a crimping ferrule (Fig. 7, not shown), provided with chevron-shaped depressions or serrations (21) in its body which bite into a wire when crimped, or, alternatively, a terminal post to allow connections to be made by wirewrapping or clips. The arms 11 may be workhardened by the formation of slots 14 at their joined portions and are resiliently twistable to allow contacts 12 to conform with any surface configuration of the inserted printed circuit panel.
