Abstract

1,226,935. Two-part couplings. AMP Inc. 2 Sept., 1969 [23 Sept., 1968], No. 43396/69. Heading H2E. A hermaphroditic contact, 3 or 4, formed from sheet metal, has a channel-shaped middle section 5 with a crimping section 6 secured to conductor wire 7 at one end. At the other end the base of the channel is extended as a flat tab 8 having a chamfered leading end 9, and a width less than that of the channel 5. A square aperture 10 is cut in the channel base and the metal is pushed up to form a wire stop 11. The tab 8 has a channel-shaped indentation made along its length, forming a ridge 12, which has a convex leading end 13 and terminates short of the end 9 of the tab. The sides of the channel 5 are extended as arms 15, which have edges 16 spaced from the tab 8 by a distance less than the tab thickness, the edges 16 being inclined slightly from the channel 5 towards the tab. The arms 15 comprise convergent parts 17 which are bent towards the end of the tab 8, parallel parts 18, spaced apart by a distance-slightly less than the sides 14 of the ridge 12, and extending to a distance short of the ridge 12 and having flared extensions 19, and stiffening ribs 21, which are outwardly projecting indentations of triangular cross-section. The contact is inserted in a housing (1 or 2, Fig. 1, not shown), the arm extensions 19 being held in a recess (24) and a latch head (26) engaging in aperture 10 in the channel. On bringing the housings (1, 2) into mating condition, each tab 8 is engaged between the opposing tab and the arms 15, the ridge 12 being held between the arms, and a flange (23) of each housing engaging a shoulder (33) of the complementary housing.
