Test Connector

This is a connector for use where a number of conductors must be repeatedly connected and disconnected with a terminal. It is mounted on a panel secured between lock nut 1 and base 2. A device under test is electrically connected to threaded portion 3 behind the panel.

A helical spring, not shown, is mounted within a portion 3 and secured at one end by pin 4 and at the other end to the center of the jaw portion 7 of armature 5. Armature 5 and base 2 are made of insulating material. Conductive portion 3 is electrically connected to a conductive internal jaw portion, not shown, at the top of base 2.

Armature S is able to be swivelled in any direction on the upper, outer edge of base 2. Lead 6 connected to a meter for testing the device, is clamped between jaw portion 7 and base 2. To disconnect, lead 6 is pulled and the jaw snaps closed on base 2.
