Abstract (en)

The plug connector comprises an activation mechanism, through whose activation the plug connectors (6) is moved between an installation position enabling an inserting or removing of a printed circuit board, and a position, in which the printed circuit board is firmly connected. A locking mechanism (8) is provided, through which an operating of the activation mechanism can be prevented. A signaling arrangement may be provided, producing a signal which indicates the position of the plug connector.

Abstract (de)

Der beschriebene Leiterplatten-Nullkraftsteckverbinder ist ein Leiterplatten-Nullkraftsteckverbinder mit einem Betätigungs-Mechanismus, durch dessen Betätigung der Leiterplatten-Nullkraftsteckverbinder von einer das Einstecken oder Entfernen einer Leiterplatte gestattenden Montagestellung in eine die Leiterplatte ordnungsgemäß kontaktierende Verbindungsstellung und/oder umgekehrt bringbar ist. Der Leiterplatten-Nullkraftsteckverbinder zeichnet sich dadurch aus, daß ein Sperr-Mechanismus vorgesehen ist, durch welchen ein Betätigen des Betätigungs-Mechanismus unterbindbar ist, und/oder daß eine Signalisierungseinrichtung vorgesehen ist, durch welche ein die Stellung des Leiterplatten-Nullkraftsteckverbinders repräsentierendes Signal erzeugbar ist. <IMAGE>
