Abstract

The expansion board uses a new plastic self-fastening mounting bracket to connect the expansion board to the inverter chassis. The expansion board has one connector and a mounting bracket used to be fixed to the inverter chassis thanks to a screw. The mounting bracket has two holes because it has to be mounted in different models of inverter that have various chassis.

New plastic mounting bracket for Expansion Board

The expansion board uses a new plastic self-fastening mounting bracket to connect the expansion board to the inverter chassis. The expansion board has one connector and a mounting bracket used to be fixed to the inverter chassis thanks to a screw. The mounting bracket has two holes because it has to be mounted in different models of inverter that have various chassis.

Fig.1 Expansion board bracket section

The plastic mounting bracket is mounted only when the expansion board has successfully conclude all the building and testing phases.

The introduction of this new mounting bracket has reduced the soldering phase from three to two steps increasing also the reliability of the final product. Additionally it has also speeded-up the building process.

The plastic mounting bracket has an auto-center mechanism that permit to be static fixed versus all three movement directions.
