20120021631SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SEALING A CONNECTOR - A connector assembly includes a connector having a connector housing including a flange and a mating end. The flange has a flange surface. The mating end has an opening extending therethrough. A flange seal extends along the flange surface. A mating end seal extends around the mating end of the connector housing. The connector housing is configured to couple to a panel so that a flange side of the panel is positioned adjacent the flange surface of the connector housing. The mating end of the connector housing is configured to extend through an opening formed in the panel. The flange seal is configured to be positioned between the flange surface of the connector housing and the flange side of the panel. The mating end seal is configured to be positioned between the panel and the mating end of the connector housing to seal the opening of the panel.01-26-2012
20120021630FORMED GASKET FOR AN ELECTRONIC CONNECTOR - Described is an electronic connector. The electronic connector has a substrate body for housing electronic pins and a cable. The substrate body is fabricated from a first material, such as hard plastic and has at least one passage from its exterior to its interior. The overmold is fabricated from a resilient material having a lower melting point than the first material. The resilient material is overmolded onto the substrate body and flows through the at least one passage in the substrate body and forms a gasket on the connecting surface of the substrate body.01-26-2012
20120028489SEALING OF SPRING-LOADED CONTACT PIN - A connector having a housing and at least one spring contact for establishing releasable electrical contacts. Each spring contact has a first contact pin axially movable, and a contact-side end facing a front side of the housing. A planar sealing element is arranged at the front side of the housing, and seals against a first predetermined fluid pressure. At least one through hole is in the sealing element within which a second contact pin is arranged. The second contact pin has a first contact-side end facing the spring contacts, and a second contact side end facing away from the front side of the housing. The second contact pin is arranged within the through hole and seals the through hole against a second predetermined fluid pressure. The first contact pin with the contact-side end mechanically hits the contact-side end of the second contact pin-establishing electrical contact.02-02-2012
20120034800Waterproof Electrical Connector and Waterproof Electrical Connector Assembly Method - The invention is directed to a waterproof electrical connector that can prevent detachment of connector parts and enhance waterproofness. The connector includes a main housing, a cover housing, a contact, and a body. The main housing includes a mating protrusion, a fitting section, and a head portion. The contact includes a contacting portion that is received in the fitting section and an electric wire connection portion that connects to one end of an electric wire. The body covers at least a boundary portion between the main housing and the cover housing. The main housing further includes an outer circumferential wall positioned on an outer circumferential side of the boundary portion between the main housing and the cover housing.02-09-2012
20130210254RECEPTACLE CONNECTOR - A receptacle connector includes an insulating housing with a plurality of openings apart opened in a front face thereof. A terminal group includes a ground terminal embedded in the insulating housing. The terminal group has a plurality of contact slices molded in the insulating housing and exposed through the openings respectively, and a plurality of touching arms elastically stretching outside the insulating housing. At least one connecting member is molded in the insulating housing to electrically connect with the ground terminal, and has a connecting slice exposed outside and abreast with the front face of the insulating housing. A metal shell is mounted to the front face of the insulating housing and point welded with the connecting slice. A window is opened in the metal shell and located to face the openings for further exposing the contact slices therethrough. A waterproof washer is sealed around the metal shell.08-15-2013
20130210255TERMINAL FITTING - An object of the present invention is to provide a terminal fitting with improved waterproof property. A terminal fitting (08-15-2013
