Abstract:

A blind-mating, positionally adjustable electrical connector device of the plug-and-socket type, with the plug connected to an electrically conductive structure such as a passive printed circuit board, and with the electrified socket insulatively attached in a positionally adjustable manner to a base member such as a chasis. Unlike the prior art, the positionally adjustable socket can be moved to correct a misalignment with the plug thereby permitting easy blind-mating of the plug and the socket, and the socket can be quickly de-electrified by a quick disconnect means which includes a wire lead, from an electric source, removably wrapped around a terminal in electricl connection with the socket, with the wire lead easily and quickly unwrapable from the terminal.
