Please refer to FIGS. 8 to 10 , FIG. 8 is an external view of the insert 121 of FIG. 7 , FIG. 9 is an exploded view of the insert 121 of FIG. 8 , and FIG. 10 is a view of FIG. A combination view of the outer casing 1211 and the second conductive portion 1212.

The insert 121 includes a housing 1211, a plurality of second conductive portions 1212 (eight in the present embodiment), a circuit board 1213, a connector 1214, and a fixing member 1215.

The fixture 1215 is, for example, a screw or other securing element. The fixing member 1215 is configured to fix the second conductive portion 1212 and the circuit board 1213 to the outer casing 1211. In the embodiment, the number of the second conductive portions 1212 and the number of the first conductive portions 113 equal.

The housing 1211 includes a second receiving portion 1211r, a block 1216, and a plurality of second openings 1211a. In the embodiment, the number of the second openings 1211a and the corresponding number of the second conductive portions 1212 are eight. The invention does not limit this number) and the bumps 1217. The second opening 1211a extends through the peripheral wall 1219 of the outer casing 1211, that is, extends from the outer peripheral surface 1219w of the peripheral wall 1219 to the inner peripheral surface (not shown) to communicate with the second receiving portion 1211r so as to be located at the second receiving portion 1211r. Each of the second conductive portions 1212 can protrude from the corresponding second opening 1211a and protrude from the corresponding second opening 1211a, that is, protrude from the outer peripheral surface 1219w of the peripheral wall 1219; thus, when the ECG scanner 120 is connected to the multi-contact connector At 110 o'clock, the second conductive portion 1212 can contact the first conductive portion 113 of the multi-contact connector 110 shown in FIG.

As shown in FIGS. 8 to 10, the second conductive portions 1212 are circumferentially arranged annularly along the peripheral wall 1219 of the outer casing 1211.

As shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, each of the second conductive portions 1212 has a first end 1212a and a second end 1212b.

Further, the width of each of the second openings 1211a (the width in the circumferential direction D2) is larger than the width of the first end 1212a (the width in the circumferential direction D2), and thus the second conductive portions 1212 protruding from the corresponding second openings 1211a The first end 1212a is displaceable in the circumferential direction D2.

The circuit board 1213 has a notch 1213r and a plurality of third openings 1213a corresponding to the second conductive portion 1212. As shown in Fig. 9, the number of the third openings 1213a is, for example, eight, but may be more or less than eight. After the circuit board 1213 and the second conductive portion 1212 are assembled with the outer casing 1211, the second end 1212b of each of the second conductive portions 1212 abuts against the block 1216 of the outer casing 1211 and passes through the third opening 1213a of the corresponding circuit board 1213. Therefore, the second conductive portion 1212 can be limited between the block 1216 and the second opening 1211a, and when the circuit board 1213 is combined with the outer casing 1211, the bump 1217 is engaged with the notch 1213r of the circuit board 1213 to make the bump 1217 prevents the circuit board 1213 from rotating, whereby the second conductive portion 1212 can be stably fixed between the outer casing 1211 and the circuit board 1213.

The trace 1213t is, for example, a signal line that extends to the connector 1214 to electrically connect the connector 1214 with the second conductive portion 1212. In this way, the physiological signal from the second conductive portion 1212 can be transmitted to the connector 1214 through the trace 1213t.

As shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, when the connector 121 is coupled to the body 122, the connector 1214 of the connector 121 can be coupled to the connector 1221 of the body 122, so that the processor 1222 disposed on the body 122 can pass through the connector 1221 and 1214 is electrically connected to the circuit board 1213.

The connector 1221 is disposed on a circuit board (not shown) of the body 122. In the present embodiment, the connector 1221 has a male connector, and the connector 1214 has a female connector such that the connector 1221 and the connector 1214 can be matched to each other. In another embodiment, the connector 1221 has a female connector and the connector 1214 has a male connector such that the connector 1221 and the connector 1214 can be mated to each other.

11 is a diagram showing a connection process of the ECG scanner 120 (not shown) 122 of FIG. 1 and the multi-contact connector 110 of FIG. 2.

In process B1 (states A1 to A2), the insert 121 of the ECG scanner 120 can be inserted into the multi-contact by means of the second conductive portion 1212 being aligned with the notch 112a of the flange 112 of the multi-contact connector 110. The first housing portion 112r of the connector 110. In the process B2 (states A2 to A3), the insert 121 is rotated in the rotational direction R to lock the insert 121 and the multi-contact connector 110 to each other. Thus, for example, the process B1 and process B2 can be operated by the body 122 in combination with the insert 121 to lock the ECG scanner 120 and the multi-contact connector 110 on the fabric 10 to each other. solid. Each of the second conductive portions 1212 of the interposer 121 can be electrically connected to the corresponding first conductive portion 113 of the multi-contact connector 110. As a result, in a single operation process (processes B1 to B2), the second conductive portion 1212 of the ECG scanner 120 can be electrically connected to the first conductive portion 113 of the multi-contact connector 110 to enable the ECG scanning module. 100 can provide multi-contact signal transmission.

In addition, in the process B2, since the plurality of first ends 1212a of the plurality of second conductive portions 1212 surround the outer diameter S1 of the formed circle slightly larger than the inner diameters S2 of the plurality of first conductive portions 113 around the formed circle, When the insert 121 is rotated, the second conductive portion 1212 interferes with the first conductive portion 113, forcing the second conductive portion 1212 to be pressed in the radial direction D1 (shown in FIG. 8) to be deformed. In this manner, after the second conductive portion 1212 contacts the first conductive portion 113 (such as the state A3), each of the second conductive portions 1212 provides a radial pre-force corresponding to the first conductive portion 113 due to the deformation, so that the second conductive portions The 1212 firmly abuts against each of the first conductive portions 113, so that the ECG scanner 120 can be prevented from easily coming off the multi-contact connector 110, and the connection stability between the ECG scanner 120 and the multi-contact connector 110 can be increased. In this way, the problem that the impedance of the conventional copper buckle due to electrical floating is unstable can be avoided.

In addition, in the process B2, although the second conductive portion 1212 interferes with the first conductive portion 113, since the second conductive portion 1212 has flexibility, the second conductive portion 1212 is radially inserted into the insert 121 during the interference. The displacement in the center direction can reduce the interference resistance between the first conductive portion 113 and the second conductive portion 1212, thereby enabling the ECG scanner 120 to be rotationally coupled to the multi-contact connector 110 in a labor-saving manner.

As shown in FIG. 11, the multi-contact connector 110 further includes a plurality of first Positioning unit 114. As shown in FIG. 6, the insert 121 further includes a plurality of second positioning portions 1218. When the second conductive portion 1212 contacts the first conductive portion 113 (such as the state A3), the plurality of first positioning portions 114 are engaged with the plurality of second positioning portions 1218, so that the user can provide a combined hand or a snap feeling. Further, during the relative rotation of the ECG scanner 120 and the multi-contact connector 110, if the user feels a snap feeling, it indicates that the second conductive portion 1212 has contacted and electrically connected to the first conductive portion 113.

In the present embodiment, the first positioning portion 114 is, for example, a protruding portion, and the second positioning portion 1218 is, for example, a concave portion. In another embodiment, the first positioning portion 114 is, for example, a recess, and the second positioning portion 1218 is, for example, a protrusion.

As shown in FIG. 11, the multi-contact connector 110 further includes a plurality of stops 115, and a notch 112a is formed between the adjacent second blocks 115. The block 115 is disposed on the flange 112 and extends toward the center of the flange 112, and the position of the block 115 is aligned with the first opening 111a; thus, when the second conductive portion 1212 contacts the first through the first opening 111a When a conductive portion 113 (such as the state A3), the position of the block 115 corresponds to the second conductive portion 1212 of the insert 121, so that each of the second conductive portions 1212 can be blocked by the corresponding block 115 to avoid the insert 121 being easy. The multi-contact connector 110 is detached in the axial direction.

In addition, each of the second conductive portions 1212 provides a radial pre-stress of the corresponding first conductive portion 113, that is, the second conductive portion 1212 and the first conductive portion 113 are in radial contact with each other, thus combining the ECG scanner 120 with In the process of the contact connector 110, the axial contact with the conventional connector of the conventional ECG scanner is less laborious. Since the embodiment of the scanning module ECG embodiment of the present invention the radial contacts 100, so the process of combination of the scanner 120 and the ECG multiple contact connector 110 may be about 85% saving. In addition, the greater the number of contact pairs (such as a pair of second conductive portions 1212 and corresponding first conductive portions 113), compared to the conventional axial combination of existing ECG scanners and existing connectors, The labor saving effect when the ECG scanner 120 and the multi-contact connector 110 of the embodiment of the present invention are combined will be more remarkable.
