Abstract

An edge type connector that mounts to the Printed Wiring Board Assembly (PWBA) mounting surface and makes electrical contact to printed fingers on the back side of the PWBA. This in conjunction with a quick mount system for the PWBA, will allow for replacement of the PWBA in less than one minute. A simple cross-section view, Figure 1 is attached showing a snap mount connector including PWBA 10, printed conductors 12, mounting plate 14, and snap mount connector 16. An auto cammed connector is shown in Figure 2. In particular, sliding the PWBA 20 moves the lever 22 to cam the electrical terminal 24 against the PWBA control fingers. The electrical wire 26 is connected to terminal 24 and the connector assembly snap mount to mounting plate 28.
