Abstract

A terminating device for a plurality of coaxial cables having inner and outer conductors separated by a dielectric is disclosed and comprises: a printed circuit board having holes for receiving the inner conductors of the coaxial cables, and lands for permitting the inner conductors of the coaxial cables to be soldered thereto; and a conductive block having holes for receiving the outer conductors of the coaxial cables, wherein the conductive block is connected to the printed circuit board, the outer conductors of the coaxial cables are soldered to the conductive block, and the coaxial cables are arranged with their inner conductors extended beyond their outer conductors, and with their dielectrics extending at least beyond the outer conductors.

Multi-Coaxial Cable Terminating Device

A terminating device for a plurality of coaxial cables having inner and outer conductors separated by a dielectric is disclosed and comprises: a printed circuit board having holes for receiving the inner conductors of the coaxial cables, and lands for permitting the inner conductors of the coaxial cables to be soldered thereto; and a conductive block having holes for receiving the outer conductors of the coaxial cables, wherein the conductive block is connected to the printed circuit board, the outer conductors of the coaxial cables are soldered to the conductive block, and the coaxial cables are arranged with their inner conductors extended beyond their outer conductors, and with their dielectrics extending at least beyond the outer conductors. The provided termina- ting device may be used in robotic systems because of its mechanical strength characteristics.

The terminating device 10 for a plurality of coaxial cables is seen in Figure 1. A single representative coaxial cable 15 which is to be connected to the terminating device 10 is shown with an outer sleeve 22, an outer conductor 24, a dielectric 26, and an inner conductor 28. The outer conductor 24 is typically a braided shield of wire, and the inner conductor 28 is typically a wire. The dielectric 26 electrically insulates the inner con ductor 28 from the outer conductor 24. The terminating device 10 essentially comprises a metal block 30 having holes 35a, 35b, 35c,... for receiving the outer conductors 24 of the coaxial...
