Abstract

A high-voltage connector constructed as a base connector has an insulated housing (

2) and two pin contacts (

3, 4) held in two compartments (

8, 9) separated by a partition (

7) that is formed as an integral portion of the housing. Each pin contact consists of a connecting pin and a lead continuing from it, the connecting pins protruding in parallel towards the front opening of the housing (

2), and each lead having a lower end to be soldered to a printed circuit board. The compartments (

8, 9) are arranged in parallel and up and down on the circuit board. The leads of the pin contacts (

23, 27) respectively extend down along the side walls (

14, 15) of the housing, and the leads' lower ends (

24, 28) are offset fore and aft relative to the housing.

Claims

1. A high-voltage connector constructed as a base connector to be mounted on a printed circuit board, the base connector comprising: an insulated housing with a front opening, and two pin contacts held in upper and lower compartments separated by a partition that is formed as an integral portion of the housing, the two pin contacts consisting each of a connecting pin and a lead continuing therefrom, with the connecting pins protruding in parallel towards the front opening, and with the leads each having a solderable end capable of being soldered to the circuit board,

2. A high-connector as defined in claim 1, wherein the two contacts are an input pin contact and an output pin contact, and the input pin contact is disposed in the upper compartment.

3. A high-voltage connector constructed as a base connector to be mounted on a printed circuit board, the base connector comprising: an insulated housing with a front opening, and two pin contacts held in upper and lower compartments separated by a partition that is formed as an integral portion of the housing, the two pin contacts consisting each of a connecting pin and a lead continuing therefrom, with the connecting pins protruding in parallel towards the front opening, and with the leads each having a solderable end capable of being soldered to the circuit board,

4. A high-connector as defined in claim 3, wherein the two contacts are an input pin contact and an output pin contact, and the input pin contact is disposed in the upper compartment.

5. A high-voltage connector as defined in claim 1 or 3, wherein one of the solderable ends of the pin contacts is located intermediate between the front and rear faces of the housing so as to extend forwards along the housing bottom, and the other of the solderable ends of the pin contacts is located near the rear face of the housing so as to extend backwards along the housing bottom.

6. The combination of a socket connector mated with the high-voltage connector according to claim 1 or 3,

7. A socket connector as defined in claim 6, wherein the ear has a bottom spaced from a bottom of the socket housing.

8. A socket connector as defined in claim 6, further comprising a lug jutting sideways from a rear end of the other side wall of the socket housing, so as to be cooperative with the ear.

9. A socket connector as defined in claim 7, further comprising a lug jutting sideways from a rear end of the other side wall of the socket housing, so as to be cooperative with the ear.
