  • Patent number: 7555387
    Abstract: A product location display system and method are provided that allow travel related product information, such as the geographic location of hotels, to be displayed on an interactive display. An application server of the product location display system receives user inputted criteria for a travel product search. A location management system determines a location for the travel product being searched based on the inputted criteria. Sub-locations associated with the geographic location being searched are pre-defined as being within the searched geographic location and stored within a location database memory component coupled with the location management system. A display configuration component of the location management system arranges and displays results of the search for the travel product by the sub-locations defined as being within the searched location.

  • Patent number: 5037331
    Abstract: A connector is provided, of the type that includes a largely insulative insert device (14) that fits closely into a metal shell (24), and wherein the metal shell fits into a diecast housing (32) that can be tightly clamped in place, wherein the insert device and shell are separately held to the housing. The housing has a vertical hole (34) for receiving the insert, and has horizontally-opening slots (46, 48) at opposite ends of the hole. The shell has a casing portion with a vertical hole (26) that closely receives the insert, and has a pair of largely horizontal flange portions (42, 44) that fit into the slots in the housing, until the holes in the housing and shell are aligned so the insert device can be received in both of them. The flange portions are bent in a largely wave-like manner, to provide good electrical connection with the walls of the slots in the housing.

  • Patent number: 4995828
    Abstract: A connector is described which has contacts with wire termination ends (24) for connecting to two ribbon-like wire groups (16, 18) wherein the wires in each group alternate between grounded wires (26c) and signal-carrying wires (26a), and wherein the contacts have connector mating ends (22) arranged in two rows including one row (1) of signal contacts and another (2) of grounded contacts. The contacts are arranged in groups of four on an insulative body (40), with the termination ends (24a, 24d) of first and fourth contacts lying respectively on first and second sides (46, 48) of the body. The termination ends (24b, 24c) of second and third contacts are each bent to extend through a slot (66b, 66c) in the body so while the contact mating end (e.g. 22b) lies in a row (1) at one side of the body, its termination end (24b) lies in a row (6) at the other side of the body.

  • Patent number: 4919626
    Abstract: A connector for an IC memory card having a printed circuit member mounted within the housing of the card which extends into a slot opening at the edge of the card. The connector contains two rows of contacts which are engageable with conductive traces on the opposite sides of the printed circuit member when the card is inserted into the connector. The contacts in the connector are reversely bent to form inner arms joined to outer arms by nose portions. The inner arms of the contacts in the two rows are normally spaced apart a distance greater than the thickness of the printed circuit member so that when the card is initially inserted into the connector, the noses of the contacts will pass freely over the border of the printed circuit member. Thereafter, the sidewalls of the housing of the card cam the outer arms of the contacts inwardly, forcing the inner arms into engagement with the traces on the printed circuit member in the card.

  • Patent number: 4628410
    Abstract: A connector is described, of a type which can be connected to a circuit board by merely laying it on the board and soldering it in place by a reflow solder technique. The connector includes a housing assembly with a substantially flat bottom that includes a solderable portion that can lie on a metal trace of a circuit board to be soldered thereto. The connector includes a row of contacts, each having a main portion within the housing and a tail extending at a downward incline from the housing so the lower end of the tail can contact a metal trace on the circuit board and become soldered thereto.

  • Patent number: 4624517
    Abstract: An improvement is described in a low insertion force connector system wherein an insertable circuit assembly is inserted into a housing against an inplace circuit assembly, with the terminals adjacent but out of contact, at which time a cam is actuated to move a device that deflects one set of terminals against the other. In the present system, the cam includes a portion that deflects against an auxillary terminal to make contact with it before the main terminals are in contact.

  • Patent number: 4544224
    Abstract: A self-locking electrical connector is disclosed in which a locking ring is mounted in an annular groove in the interior of a coupling nut on the plug of the connector. When the plug is mated with the receptacle, inwardly extending projections on the locking ring ride up over a low-angle ramp on the shell of the receptacle and then snap into a locking groove formed in the receptacle shell behind the ramp to lock the connector members together. The surface of the locking groove next to the low-angle ramp is formed as a high-angle ramp which allows removal of the projections of the ring from the groove when the coupling nut is rotated with high torque to unthread from the shell. In an alternative embodiment, the locking ring is carried by the receptacle shell, and the locking groove and angular ramps are formed on the inner surface of the coupling nut.

  • Patent number: 4262981
    Abstract: A printed circuit board connector is disclosed wherein the pattern of the wire-wrap posts of the contacts in the connector is different from the pattern, and the spacing, of the contacting sections of the contacts which engage the printed circuit board. The bottom of the connector is in the form of a substrate containing plated-through holes which receive printed circuit board engaging contacts without wire-wrap posts, as well as feed-through contacts which are offset from the other contacts and joined thereto by conductive traces on the substrate. A second set of printed circuit board engaging contacts having wire-wrap posts may be provided wherein the contacting sections of the printed circuit board engaging contacts of the connector are positioned more closely than the spacing between the wire-wrap posts of the connector.

  • Patent number: 4162119
    Abstract: A fiber optic device for providing a visual indication when a subassembly, such as an electronic "ATR box", is in place in a rack mounting arrangement with its electrical connections firmly mated with the corresponding rack connections within a small predetermined tolerance. A special fiber optic connector has first and second parts, one of which is attached to the ATR box and the other mounting in the rack for mating concurrently with the mating of the electrical connections. A number of such devices may be provided in a rack of equipment, each fixed rack mounted connector being supplied with a light signal via a length of fiber optic conductor, preferably from a common light source. Within the ATR box unit itself, another length of fiber optic conductor connects the fiber optic connector to the front panel or some other location for convenient observation.
