Abstract

It is proposed to mount an adaptor interface on these optical switches and use the pins of the discrete opt0 devices as male pins. These pins could mate to box contact sockets. The adaptor provides locking and anti-rotation for the moving connector.

It is proposed to mount an adaptor interface on these optical switches and use the pins of the discrete opt0 devices as male pins. These pins could mate to box contact sockets. The adaptor provides locking and anti-rotation for the moving connector.

Advantages - the adaptor interface should be a low-cost item and permit a low-cost optical switch to be directly connected to a harness. The interface would allow use of socket connectors and provide locking and anti-rotation of mating connector. The pins of the discrete optoelectronic devices would be used as male pins. The interface block would snap on the optical sensor.
