For right angle board-to-board optical interconnections, when the daughter card is inserted, the locking mechanism assures a zero air gap interconnect between adjoining ferrules, allowing sufficient insertion force flex to be compatible with adjoining electronic pin connectors on the daughter board. This configuration assures good coupling while avoiding a hard stop insertion of the board.
