Abstract

Tube socket 10 has contact elements 15 so as to receive contact pins 20 of vacuum tube 25 or the like. Elements 15 are H-shaped and are disposed in a circle or ring within body element 30 of socket 10. Element 30 is apertured to receive elements 15. It also has a central longitudinal opening 31 for those tubes 25 having a central locating element which is adapted to enter opening 31 only in one way. Socket 10 is adapted to fit within a support member 35.

Pluggable Taper Pin Tube Socket

Tube socket 10 has contact elements 15 so as to receive contact pins 20 of vacuum tube 25 or the like. Elements 15 are H-shaped and are disposed in a circle or ring within body element 30 of socket 10. Element 30 is apertured to receive elements 15. It also has a central longitudinal opening 31 for those tubes 25 having a central locating element which is adapted to enter opening 31 only in one way. Socket 10 is adapted to fit within a support member 35.

That portion of 15 for receiving pins 20 of tube 25 consists of a pair of flat arms 16. These are spaced from each other so as to provide an opening for receiving pins 20. Arms 16 extend upwardly from the central horizontally extending section 17. Elements 15 are also configured for receiving taper pin terminals 40 attached to conductors 41. Tubular members 18 extend in spaced relationship away from central section 17. Members 18 have vertically extending slits 19. These enable members 18 to slightly expand upon receiving pins 40. The largest diameter of a pin 40 is greater than the diameter of members 18.

Conductors are readily connected to contact elements 15. Pins 40 are merely inserted into members 18. Whenever it is desired to make a change in connections, a pin 40 is removed and a new one is inserted.
