  • Patent number: 10877106
    Abstract: In a jig main body constructing a conduction inspection jig, a pin guard plate is arranged so as to be movable back and forth between the main body bottom portion and the main body guide portion. Before conduction inspection, the tip end of a conduction pin is positioned outside the conduction pin hole. When the pin guard plate moves towards a side of the main body bottom portion with a start of the conduction inspection, only the tip end of the normal conduction pin without bent enters into the conduction pin hole and penetrates, and thereby protrudes from the conduction pin hole. An inspection method of a conduction pin includes an arranging step of arranging the tip end outside the conduction pin hole, a moving step of moving the pin guard plate, and a detecting step of detecting whether or not the tip end enters into the conduction pin hole.

  • Publication number: 20200251857
    Abstract: A connector includes a housing and a connector position assurance device (CPA). The CPA is movable between a first position and a second position and assures that the connector is completely mated with a mating connector or maintains a completely mated state in the second position. The housing has a mating portion, a guiding portion, and an abutting portion. The CPA has a base portion guided by the guiding portion and a beam portion. The abutting portion abuts on the beam portion in the first position during non-mating with the mating connector to block movement of the CPA to the second position. The mating connector during complete mating deforms the beam portion to remove the abutment of the beam portion on the abutting portion to allow the CPA to move to the second position.
