  • Publication number: 20170346226
    Abstract: A connector includes a lever attachable to a first housing to draw and fit the first housing and a second housing by rotating around a rotating axis from a temporary lock position to a final lock position. The lever includes: a positioning portion including a pair of wall surfaces which extend toward the first housing and which are spaced at a predetermined distance from each other in a first direction parallel to the rotating axis; and a lever side lock portion. The first housing includes: a reception portion which receives the positioning portion so as to hold the pair of wall surfaces in the first direction; and a housing-side lock portion to which the lever-side lock portion is locked in a state in which the positioning portion has been received in the reception portion and when the lever is in the final lock position.

  • Publication number: 20170331347
    Abstract: In a rotary electric machine, wound wires are connected to a first terminal and a second terminal. Circuit terminals that are configured from a conductive metal other than aluminum, and the first terminal and the second terminal that are configured from a metal with a principal component of aluminum are joined together inside a circuit chamber that has high water resistant properties. Corrosion is accordingly suppressed at join sites of the circuit terminals with the first terminal and the second terminal. There is therefore no need to coat the join sites with for example a sealing material in order to suppress corrosion at the join sites. Good electrical continuity is accordingly enabled between the circuit terminals and the wound wires whilst suppressing an increase in costs, even when the wound wire is configured from a metal with a principal component of aluminum.

  • Publication number: 20170162983
    Abstract: A connector housing includes a housing body and a fitting operation lever that has a swinging portion attached to the housing body rotatably. A part of the rib protruding toward the swinging portion narrows an interval between a curved portion of the housing body and the swinging portion to a predetermined value or below. A part of the rib protruding toward a direction separating from a lower surface of the housing body has a flat face. A distance between the rotary axis of the swinging portion and the flat face is larger than a distance between the rotary axis and a part of an outer circumferential edge of the swinging portion.

  • Patent number: 8979589
    Abstract: An inner terminal connected to a terminal of a core wire and provided with an electric connecting portion electrically connected with a mating terminal is received in an inner housing. The inner housing is incorporated into an outer terminal. The outer terminal is mated with a mating connector in such a state as that the shield member is connected to the outer terminal and the electric connecting portion of the inner terminal is positioned in the outer terminal. The outer terminal has the same configuration as that of an outer terminal of the mating connector, thus making the outer terminals sharable between male and female connectors.
