Class Information
Number: 439/296
Name: Electrical connectors > With coupling movement-actuating means or retaining means in addition to contact of coupling part
Description: Electrical connector comprising a coupling part* having (a) separate means to forcibly bring interfitting or matching parts of the coupling part and a mating part* interfitting therewith, i.e., to effect electrical connection; or (b) means separate from the current carrying components of the coupling part and a mating part to maintain the interengagement of such parts, the parts being operable independently of or in addition to the coupling motion, i.e., to maintain electrical connection.
