Abstract

High-density intermachine connections are facilitated by this modularized connector assembly using the pneumatic connector described in the IBM Technical Disclosure Bulletin, Vol. 12, No. 9, February 1970, page 1325. The fixed panel 1 includes a frame assembly 2 fastened to machine frame 3. The frame assembly has provision for six 2 x 3 matrices which contain forty pneumatic connector blocks 4. Air manifolds 5 supply air to the connector blocks.

High Capacity Electrical Connector

High-density intermachine connections are facilitated by this modularized connector assembly using the pneumatic connector described in the IBM Technical Disclosure Bulletin, Vol. 12, No. 9, February 1970, page 1325. The fixed panel 1 includes a frame assembly 2 fastened to machine frame 3. The frame assembly has provision for six 2 x 3 matrices which contain forty pneumatic connector blocks 4. Air manifolds 5 supply air to the connector blocks.

The connector panel 6 includes a frame with 2 x 3 matrices provided with matching boards 7 containing the male connectors 8. Guides 9 and 10 affixed to the frames provide an aligning means for the two frames when they are closed by a suitable mechanism, not shown. After closing of the two frames, air pressure is applied to the connectors via the manifolds.
