  • Patent number: 5281166
    Abstract: A "through-hole mounting" boardlock fixture is adapted to secure an electrical connector to a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) employing a Surface Mounting Technology (SMT) procedure. In one aspect, the boardlock fixture comprises a rim defining an opening therethrough and a solder block dimensioned to be insertable within the opening. Furthermore, a plurality of fingers flexibly mounted to the rim extend, generally, downward therefrom. Each respective finger is dimensioned to support the boardlock when inserted in the opening. SMT is applied to melt the solder block to mount the connector to the PCB. In another aspect of the present invention, an electrical connector including a housing is mounted to a PCB. Further, the housing defines a row of apertures each of which a respective pin contact is positioned therein. Each pin contact includes a downward extension extending along a housing back region which terminates at a corresponding PCB circuit.

  • Patent number: 5174789
    Abstract: An electrical connector with enhanced coupling is provided which comprises: an insulative housing (10) including a base portion (11), and an upstanding portion (12) defining a plurality of conduits for housing individual electrical contacts; a metal housing (20) including a flange (21), a shell (22) upstanding from the flange and defining a first opening (24) sized to receive and encompass the upstanding portion of the insulative housing, and first and second tabs (23) depending downward from the flange; a bracket (30) including a mounting surface (31) that defines a second opening (32) sized to permit passage therethrough of the upstanding portion of the insulative housing, the mounting surface also defining first and second cavities (34) on opposite sides of the second opening sized to receive the first and second tabs when the first and second openings are aligned; first latch mechanism (33) for securing the first tab to the bracket when the first tab is received within the first cavity; and second latch m

  • Patent number: 5167516
    Abstract: An electrical male connector assembly incorporates a floating shield that is resiliently held in a position on the connector body wherein the male contact pins are hidden or shielded from contact by the shield in its outermost position. When the connector member is mated with a corresponding female connector, the opposed face of the female connector impinges on the shield and cause it to be slid along the contact pins to a retracted position. Means are provided for biasing the shield toward its outermost position. The shield face is metalized to provide an exposed ground plane in electrically conductive contact with a metal portion of the connector member shell to drain off any electrical static discharges that might otherwise come into contact with the exposed contact pins.

  • Patent number: 5147224
    Abstract: An electrical connector assembly includes a first insulative housing (12) which defines a plurality of first passages (14) extending therethrough for receiving corresponding electrical conductive members (22). The first insulative housing (12) also defines a corresponding number of apertures (42) thereof for receiving electrical filtering components (30), such as a TVS chip, and each apertures (42) is parallel to and communicates with one side of the first passage (14). A second insulative housing (16) defines a plurality of second passages (38) corresponding to the first passages (14) of the first insulative housing (12) for receiving the same conductive members (22), and also defines a corresponding number of cavities (40) thereof for receiving conductive bridge members (34).

  • Patent number: 5145412
    Abstract: A housing has a hollow portion to receive a ferrule, and a support member is positioned between the housing and the ferrule. A plurality of electrical elements are selectively positioned within the housing in electrically conductive contact with the support member. A detachable shell is closely positioned on the housing in circumscribing relation with the support member and in electrically conductive relation with the electrical elements to completely shield and enclose the electrical elements. Removing the electrical elements, the rest parts of the assembly is deemed as a semi-finished product and can be stored as inventory for a later time use according to the customer's requirements.
