Abstract

The drawings picture an alignment frame which adapts a module assembly to function within the actuator mechanism of a connector which employs lateral movement to obtain pin engagement. B Proper engagement requires a precise relationship between the array of module pins and the surface against which the actuator is to push. Insufficient travel would result in failure to engage, while excessive travel would result in damage to pins or sockets.
