Abstract

The disclosed power feeder housing consists of two identical molded plastic halves which snap together over an electrical assembly to provide it with support and protection. The housing is symmetrically arranged with detents for mating the two halves, slots at either end to allow access of the electrical assembly to the outside, and holes in the base to guide the entrance of connector pins. Internally, the housing is configured to capture and support the electrical assembly while providing sufficient clearance for its components.
