Abstract

A high-speed automatic method and apparatus for checking that each pin in an Amp-type connector is sufficiently re- tained to withstand a ten to fourteen pound push-~out load, The pins 2 of an n pin connector 4 are coupled through push rods 6 to compression springs 8, A hydraulic or compressed air Piston 10 supplies from lOn to 14n pounds of force to the plurality of Pins 2~ Each spring has an outside diameter of ~l25~, a free length of 5/8 and a spring rate of 96,8 16/in, A defective pin 12 will be displaced into the connector. Use of this apparatus allows all pins to be tested simultaneously.
