Titel : high-voltage connector

This publication describes a simple system of mounting a high-voltage connector onto a counter connector using only one screw.

The system has a flange (1, see figures) with two separate flange portions (1A, 1B) each having a nose portion (2A, 2B) which together fit in a groove (3) provided in a mounting portion (4) for the counter connector (5). Thus, the flange portions (1A, 1B) are held together in said groove (3). Opposite to the nose portions (2A, 2B) the flange portions (1A, 1B) have overlapping parts which are held together by one single screw (6) extending through holes (7) provided in said overlapping parts. With said screw (6) the high-voltage connector (8) is pressed via a pressing sleeve (9) into the counter connector (5) and mounted in a threaded hole (10) provided in the mounting portion (4).

Thus the mounting portion (4) combines the functions of holding the counter connector (5) via a threaded ring (11), holding the flange (1) in the groove (3), and mounting and pressing the connector (8) via the screw (6) in the mounting portion (4).

Further, as usual for a connector of a high-voltage cable, the flange or the mounting bolt should be separable in order to extend the high-voltage cable through for example a cable duct. In this system the flange and the mounting bolt are integrated, so that a simple structure is obtained.

When mounting the connector (8) the flange portions (1A,1B) have to be shifted over the high-voltage cable (12)...
