A Method and System for Providing an Electromagnetic Compatibility Clip for Ungrounded Connectors

Disclosed is a method and system for providing an electromagnetic compatibility clip for ungrounded connectors by molding a metallic frame. The molded metallic frame has a saw tooth pattern in an inner surface of the metal frame to contact connector body.

FIG. 1 illustrates a connector as per the existing art.

FIG. 1

As shown in FIG. 1, a connector includes metal fingers (1) attached to a panel (2) at a cut edge. During a cutting process, the cut edge removes pre-plate treatment but forms rust at the cut edge over time. Further, to modify the rust part of the panel (2), the panel (2) is painted through paint or paint overspray. But, the panel may interfere with the electrical contact and act as an insulator due to the paint. Additionally, the connector disclosed in FIG. 1 has only one contact point for several connectors on surface (4) or sometimes may also have of contact point as shown in area (3).

FIG. 2 is illustrates a typical electromechanical panel as existing in the art.
