  • Patent number: 10763617
    Abstract: Occurrence of contact point slide due to vibration is suppressed in a movable connector that has a floating function from a technical approach that is different from the related art. A movable connector includes a displacement support member that includes a flexible support portion that is elastically deformable in a fitting direction, in which a mating connector is to be fitted with a movable housing, with the flexible support portion abutting against the movable housing. The movable housing includes a bottom wall, against which the mating connector abuts in the fitting direction. The movable housing is displaced in the fitting direction with the flexible support portion elastically deformed in the fitting direction when the mating connector presses the bottom wall in the fitting direction.

  • Publication number: 20200251842
    Abstract: In a flat-conductor connector having an automatic lock mechanism for a flat conductor, a fitting connection operation of a flat conductor is enabled to be reliably performed again after the flat conductor is extracted. A flat-conductor connector 1 includes a lock member including a slip-off stop locking surface configured to pass through a flat conductor housed in a housing chamber of a housing in the thickness direction of the flat conductor and lock the flat conductor. The lock member includes a supporting portion configured to support the slip-off stop locking surface so as to be displaceable between a locking position at which the lock member is locked with and stops the flat conductor from slipping off and a lock cancellation position at which the lock member is unlocked from the flat conductor to cause the flat conductor to be extractable from the housing chamber.

  • Patent number: 10686273
    Abstract: To provide a connector that is less deformable even under a high contact pressure. A connector includes a housing having a fitting chamber, and a terminal that comes into conductive contact with a pin terminal in the fitting chamber. The terminal includes a fixing base fixed to the housing, a contact member extending from the fixing base and pressed against the pin terminal, and right and left press-supporting members extending from the fixing base. The press-supporting members include respective contact-receiving parts that face the contact member in the fitting chamber and are positioned side by side in a direction intersecting a direction of insertion of the pin terminal into the fitting chamber. Since the pressed pin terminal is received by the plurality of contact-receiving parts, the pressing force can be dispersed therebetween. Hence, the deformation of the contact member and the contact-receiving parts can be prevented.
