A preferred embodiment of this invention is represented by the 15 telecommunication mini-bantam jack module generally designated with the numeral 10 that is illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4. A module 10 having four mini- bantam jack assemblies 76 is the basic building block. Multiple modules 10 are intended to be inserted into a telecommunication equipment termination panel 12. Preferably fourteen modules 10 are insertable in a 19 inch width panel 0 12. Preferably sixteen modules 10 are insertable in a 23 inch width panel 12.

The panel 12 has an elongated panel chassis 14 defined by a top wall

16, a bottom wall 18, side walls 20, 24, back wall 24 and front wall 28. The back wall 24 has a back wall opening 26. The front wall 28 has a front opening 30 through which each of the modules 10 is inserted. The panel 5 chassis 14 has a hinged transparent front door 32 for enclosing part of the front opening 30 after the modules 10 are inserted. Additionally the panel chassis 14 has a rear cable support 34 projecting outward from the back wall 24 for facilitating the support and termination of telecommunication equipment cables

(not shown). 0 The top and bottom walls 16, 18 have respective locking means 38 and

40 for releasably locking the modules to panel 12 once the modules are fully inserted. The lower locking means 40 has a detent 42 and an aperture 44 formed therein for releasably securing a module 10 to the chassis along the bottom wall 18. The upper locking means 38 has a front wall retaining ledge

35 for securing a module along the top wall 16. Each module 10 has a general housing 50 that generally extends from a front face or front panel 52 to a rear panel or backplane 54. The housing 50 includes a top wall 56, a bottom wall 58, and side walls 60, 62. The top wall 56 includes a top releasable latch 64 (Fig. 2 and 3) that cooperates with the front wall retaining ledge to releasably secure the module 10 to the panel chassis 14. Likewise the bottom wall 58 has a lower latch 66 (Figs. 1 and 2) that cooperates with one of the apertures 44 to releasable secure the module to the bottom wall 18.

The module 10 has a rear input/output field 70 (Fig. 4) at the backplane 54 having input/output connectors 138 for semi-permanently connecting to ends of the cables from the telecommunication equipments. The module 10 has a front access bantam jack field 72 for enabling monitoring and temporarily patching to or from the telecommunication equipments. The module 10 further importantly has a front cross-connect field 74 for enabling the telecommunication equipments to terminate at the rear input/output field 70 to be cross-connected at the front of the module.

The front access mini-bantam jack field 72 includes, one or more, preferably four mini-bantam jack assemblies 76. Each jack assembly 76 has a front access mini-bantam jack plug IN aperture 78, a front access mini-bantam jack plug OUT aperture 80 and a front access mini-bantam jack plug MONITOR aperture 82. Each jack assembly 76 has at least two jack switches 84 supported on a jack frame 86. Each of the jack switches 84 has contact spring elements 88 with front ends 90 that project forward toward the apertures 78, 80, and 82 and rear terminal ends 92 that extend rearward terminating in an internal jack printed circuit board 110.

The front access cross-connect field 72 preferably includes a plurality of connectors in the form of wire wrap pins 100. The pins 100 have front ends 102 that project forward of the front face 52 to receive interconnecting wire wrap conductors. The pins 100 have rear ends 104 that are extend though a lower portion of the front face 52 terminating in the internal jack printed circuit board 110.

The internal jack printed circuit board 110 is mounted in the housing 50 between the front face 52 and the backplane 54. The internal printed circuit board 110 is mounted transverse to the jack assemblies 76 and spaced forward and substantially parallel with the backplane 54. The internal printed circuit board 110 has a front face 112 that faces forward and a rear face 114 (Fig. 7) that faces the backplane 54. The internal printed circuit board 110 is secured to the housing by fasteners 116. Importantly the internal printed circuit board 110 receives and supports the rear ends 92 and 104. The board 110 has printed circuits 118 that electrically interconnect the components. For example, the ends 92 of the spring elements 88 and the ends 104 of the wire wrap pins 110 extend through the board 110 and are soldered to the circuits 118 on the rear face 114 as shown in Fig. 7 and as illustrated in electrical schematic form in Fig. 9. The internal printed circuit board 110 has a printed circuit board terminal connector 120 mounted on the rear face for electrically interconnecting the front jack field 72 and the front cross-connect field 74 with the rear input/output field 70. The printed circuit board terminal connector 120 includes a pin block 122 having a plurality of elongated small-diameter interconnecting pins 124 with mounting ends 126 extending through the printed circuit board 110 and soldered to the front face 112. The pins have projecting ends 128 that project outward toward the backplane 54.

Importantly, the universal module 10 has interchangeable backplane printed circuit boards 130 for enabling the universal module 10 to be connected to the telecommunication equipments at the backplane independently of the type of connectors that are on the ends of the cables. The interchangeable backplane printed circuit boards enable the universal module 10 to be connected to cables having coaxial BNC, TNC, BT43 or Type 43 female connectors. Additionally the interchangeable backplane printed circuit boards 130 enable the universal module to be connected to twisted pair cables requiring wire pin connectors or insulation displacement connectors.

Each backplane printed circuit board 130 has a front facing surface 132 (Fig. 8) and a rear facing surface 134 (Fig. 4). A plurality of input/output termination connectors 136 are permanently or semi-permanently mounted to the printed circuit board and extending outward from the rear facing surface for connecting to complementary connectors on the end of the termination cables. Each board 130 has a plurality of printed circuits 138 interconnecting the input/output termination connectors 136 with a printed circuit board connector 140. The printed circuit board connector 140 is mounted on the front facing surface 132 for receiving the projecting ends 128 of the interconnecting pins 124 from the jack printed circuit board 110. To enable the backplane printed circuit boards to be interchangeable, a releasable fastener 142 is provided to releasably secure a chosen backplane board 130 to the housing 50. Preferably the fastener 142 are screws (Fig. 4). Balun transformers 144 are provided as part of the printed circuits 138, as illustrated in the electrical schematic Fig. 9, to interchangeable boards 130 that have coaxial connectors 136. The electrical circuit shown in Fig. 9 is applicable for coaxial connectors 136 such as BNC, TNC, BT43 and Type 43. The coaxial connectors shown in Fig. 4 are "BT 43" connectors which are common in many of the European countries. 'BNC" and TNC" coaxial connectors are quite common in North America.

The interchangeable backplane printed circuit board 130 shown in Figs. 10-12 has insulated displacement connectors (IDC) 152. The interchangeable backplane printed circuit board 130 shown in Figs. 13-15 has twisted pair wire wrap connectors 162. Preferably each of the backplane boards 130 has LED terminals 148 for providing power for LED"s mounted on the front of the modules 10.

The above described embodiment enable the manufacturer to construct a single universal mini-bantam jack front cross-connect module that is capable of servicing a wide variety of low frequency telecommunication equipments, by mounting the compatible backplane printed circuit board having the complementary input/output termination connectors at the rear of the module. Should the customer have a variety if systems, then the customer merely needs to inventory the universal module with a variety of backplane boards 130. This saves the customer from having to inventory a multitude of single connector type modules. Furthermore it dramatically reduces the number of instances in which the telecommunication worker has the wrong module for the intended task. The module 10 is particularly important for telephone companies that have both coaxial and twist pair cables for low frequency equipment.
