Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9834298A1] Connector (200) for mounting to a thin circuit-bearing substrate (202) to establish electrical connections of contacts (206) with contact pads (210) of circuits on the substrate, for a high temperature environment. Connector (200) defines a low profile electrical interface of the substrate (202) with another electrical article such as a cable for power transmission. Clamp (242) is latched to housing (204) to establish sufficient clamping force to press the contacts against the contact pads (210) of the substrate after the tab (252) is inserted into a passageway defined between the clamp and the contacts (206). Bracket (228) is lockable to and about housing (204) to support and stabilize the structure of the plastic housing when subjected to high temperature.
