  • Patent number: 10734741
    Abstract: A connector includes a housing and a shield member. The housing includes an insertion-removal section and a guide face, a connection target is inserted into or removed from the insertion-removal section through an insertion-removal port in an insertion-removal direction, and the guide face is formed at a peripheral portion of the insertion-removal section so as to guide the connection target toward the insertion-removal section. The shield member includes a pair of shield portions and a coupling portion. The pair of shield portions are disposed on both sides of the housing in a first direction intersecting the insertion-removal direction, the coupling portion couples the pair of shield portions together in the first direction, the coupling portion contacts a location of the housing on an opposite side to the insertion-removal port in the insertion-removal direction, and the coupling portion at least partially overlaps the guide face as viewed in the insertion-removal direction.

  • Patent number: 10615528
    Abstract: A connector to which a connection target object is fitted and connected by inserting the connection target object into a fitting chamber is configured to allow the fitting operation to be readily performed even in a case where the connector is small. An insertion guiding surface is provided round an insertion port through which the connection target object is inserted. The insertion guiding surface has an inner guiding surface that extends from the edge of the insertion port toward the fitting chamber, an intermediate guiding surface provided in a region outside the inner guiding surface, and an outer guiding surface provided in a region outside the intermediate guiding surface. The inner guiding surface differs from the intermediate guiding surface in terms of shape, and the intermediate guiding surface differs from the outer guiding surface in terms of shape.

  • Publication number: 20170170585
    Abstract: A second terminal includes a base portion extending along a bottom surface of a fitting chamber from a side of an opening of the fitting chamber toward a depth wall. The base portion includes a fixed piece fixed to the bottom surface and a movable piece that turns on the fixed piece as the turning fulcrum in a direction away from the bottom surface. The second terminal utilizes the total length of a spring piece portion and the movable piece as the spring length for elastically displacing a contact part.

  • Patent number: 9397432
    Abstract: A connector is provided to sufficiently absorb the displacements of a plurality of connection objects with respect to a substrate even when the plurality of connection objects are connected. Two movable housings are formed by separate members that can move relative to each other, thereby absorbing the displacements of two mating connectors connected to the respective movable housings by each of the respective movable housings. This can sufficiently absorb the displacements of the mating connectors relative to a substrate.

  • Publication number: 20160013572
    Abstract: A through hole is provided in a housing, and a cylindrical member is inserted into the through hole so that the cylindrical member is disposed between a mating substrate and a substrate, and a screw is inserted into the cylindrical member to hold the mating substrate, the cylindrical member and the substrate. Further, the cylindrical member includes a first protruding end that protrudes from the through hole toward the mating substrate and a second protruding end that protrudes toward the substrate. Accordingly, the housing can be prevented from being pressed by the screw, and also prevented from being pressed by the mating substrate and the substrate. Therefore, the terminal can be prevented from being dropped off from the substrate due to deformation or damage of the housing.
