Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0869580A1] The connector includes electrical contacts maintained in the case by primary bolting devices, a secondary bolt forming an integral part of the case, when not in the bolting position, is liable to prevent the coupling of the connector. The secondary bolt incorporates at least one deformable wall (21), at least one rigid wing (23) joined to the deformable wall, at least one longitudinal bar (25) joined to the rigid wing (23) and at least one piece supported by the bar (25). The secondary bolt has two stable positions, a waiting position and a bolting position, movement from the one position to the other being via a downstream effect. The piece is inserted, in the bolting position, at the level of the transition zone (12,13) of the electrical contacts (2,3).
