Abstract

1,230,516. Two-part couplings. AMP Inc. 4 Oct., 1969, No. 48876/69. Heading H2E. A connector comprises an insulating housing (EC, Fig. 1, not shown) for mounting in a metallie mounting panel (MP) having a body section 3 and two printed circuit guide members (4) of differing lengths, each having lugs (12) to provide spaces between adjacent printed circuit boards (PCB, Fig. 8, not shown). The body section 3 has two protruding sections 5 which mate with rectangular apertures 1 in the mounting panel, and passageways 6 extend through the housing and communicate with a boardreceiving channel 7. Electrical terminals 8 are positioned in the passageways 6, and each post 10 is twisted relative to the corresponding contact section 9 in channel 7 until it engages stops 6<SP>1</SP>, locking projections 14 on the surface of section 5 are tapered, and shearable projections 16 extend from stepped surfaces 15 opposite the locking projections 14. Beneath each locking projection 14 is an oblong opening 17 and the post 10 aligned with the locking projection is initially left untwisted as shown in Fig. 2 so that the protruding section 5 is flexible in this region and flexes as the housing is inserted into the mounting panel, the locking projections locking the housing against withdrawal, and the projections 16 taking up any play between surfaces 15 and the opposite side of the panel; the remaining posts 10 are then twisted into position, thus stopping flexure of portion 5 carrying projections 14. A projection (18a, Figs. 9, 10, 11, not shown) located at one end of protruding section 5 is sheared back by the edge of aperture 1 forcing the connector towards the other end of the aperture 1, the sheared off part of the projection (18a) being collected in a recess (19). The posts 10 which extend through round tapered holes (2) in the mounting panel may be connected to the mounting panel by driving a tapered plug (20, Figs. 11, 12, not shown) into these holes, the sharp edges of the post-receiving slot (21) breaking down any oxide coating present.
