Defining a Connector Connection Point

This task explains how to define a connector connection point on a connector.
A connector connection point is used to specify how mating connectors are placed when making an electrical connection.
Open any document containing a single insert connector where you want to place a connector connection point.
  1. Click Define Connector Connection Point .

  2. Select the electrical device where you want the connector connection point to be defined.

    The Connector Connection Point Definition dialog box opens:
  3. Enter a value in the Name field.

  4. Select a Representation, for example a pocket, a pad, a face...

  5. Optionally, place a Contact constraint, for example a surface or a point.

  6. Optionally, place a Coincidence constraint, for example a surface, a line or an axis.

  7. Optionally, place an Orientation constraint, for example a surface, a line or an axis.
    The orientation is used to constrain the rotation i.e. the third degree of liberty.

  8. Click OK to validate.

    The specification tree is updated.

For more information about the placement constraints, refer to Using Assembly Constraints.

You can add connector connection points to single insert connectors and multi insert connectors.
