Abstract

See full text

A modular connector comprises an insulative mother housing defining rows of passageways through opposite sides thereof. A plurality of modules each have contacts extending therefrom for connection to the passageways of the mother housing. Each module defines a reception hole so that all the reception holes of all the modules are in alignment with each other when the modules are connected to the mother housing by the extended contacts thereof. A dowel is adapted to be inserted into the reception holes of at least two adjacent modules thereby connecting the at least two adjacent modules in addition to the connection thereof to the mother housing.
