Abstract

An assembly is disclosed suitable for mounting on a printed circuit board (PCB) which contains a power receptacle (socket) type CEE22 and a power switch. Also, optionally, the assembly may also include a fuse. The assembly may be mounted on a PCB close to an enclosure wall apertured so that the switch rocker projects through the wall and a power play may be inserted in the power receptacle through the wall. The figures show side and rear views of the assembly 1 mounted on PCB 2 which combines two components normally mounted on a PCB board separately to reduce PCB area, interconnecting tracks and assembly time. Assembly 1 is mounted adjacent to apertured enclosure wall 3 with switch rocker 4 projecting through wall 3 and so that a power plug may be inserted into power receptacle 5 through wall 3.
