Connector Post Alignment Fixture
A device for mechanically aligning the connector pins of a pluggable unit prior
to insertion into the through holes of a printed circuit board (PCB), or the like,
works as follows.
The alignment device 1 consists of three combs 2 that have rows of teeth 3.
The device 1 is actuated in the direction indicated by arrow A and pins (not
shown) enter the combs 2 through slots 4 between the teeth 3. The pins are held
by all three slots.When the pins are in the correct position the middle comb is
actuated in the direction indicated by arrow B such that the v-shaped slots 5
engage the pins. As the slots 4 engage the pins the ramped sides place the pins
in the correct position and lock the pins in place.
The device holds the aligned pins in place and pins are inserted into the
holes of the PCB. The device 1 is disengaged when the middle comb is restored
to its former position and releases the pins. The device is then removed.
