Abstract

The drawing shows an electrical connection between a braid 3 of a coaxial cable and a connector 4. The inner conductor 6, shown in part B of the drawing, is nonconventionally connected to a tined connector 7 which is shown in part A of the drawing. A dielectric insert 8 isolates connector 7 from connector 4. Tines fit over a pin, not shown, that enters the housing, and the conductor 4 engages a ground connector, not shown.

Electrical Connector

The drawing shows an electrical connection between a braid 3 of a coaxial cable and a connector 4. The inner conductor 6, shown in part B of the drawing, is nonconventionally connected to a tined connector 7 which is shown in part A of the drawing. A dielectric insert 8 isolates connector 7 from connector 4. Tines fit over a pin, not shown, that enters the housing, and the conductor 4 engages a ground connector, not shown.

An elongated four sided crimp in region 9 of connector 4 fastens connector 4 to braid 3. The crimp is made with low pressure to avoid damaging the braid or the insulation layer 10 separating the braid from the conductor 6. This crimp provides sufficient contact to mechanically and electrically connect part 4 to braid
3.
