Abstract

This device comprises a coaxial cable connector and a contact section having matched impedance. Coaxial cable 13 is aligned for insertion in coaxial connector 11. The outer part of connector 11 is formed from sheet metal and has a rectangular body section 25, two support arms 26 and 27, and terminating cylindrical structure 31. Upper and lower arcuate sections 33 and 35 have ports 37 and are separated by slits 38. This permits adjustment so that different diameter cable shields can be guided and received. The stripped center conductor 15 of cable 13 is soldered to axial slot 49 of axial conductor 47. Arcuate sections 33 and 35 are soldered to wall metal shield 19. Ports 37 provide for applying soldering heat and inspection. Conductor 47 at its other end has contact part 51 mounted in extension 52 of insulator 45.

Coaxial Cable Connector

This device comprises a coaxial cable connector and a contact section having matched impedance. Coaxial cable 13 is aligned for insertion in coaxial connector 11. The outer part of connector 11 is formed from sheet metal and has a rectangular body section 25, two support arms 26 and 27, and terminating cylindrical structure 31. Upper and lower arcuate sections 33 and 35 have ports 37 and are separated by slits 38. This permits adjustment so that different diameter cable shields can be guided and received. The stripped center conductor 15 of cable 13 is soldered to axial slot 49 of axial conductor 47. Arcuate sections 33 and 35 are soldered to wall metal shield 19. Ports 37 provide for applying soldering heat and inspection. Conductor 47 at its other end has contact part 51 mounted in extension 52 of insulator 45. Contact 51 has a rounded cylindrical segment 53 which assures reliable engagement with a flat surface. Insulator extension 52 is supported by extended body bottom wall 64 which forms a shield connecting contact surface. Clear insulating tubing 65, which is made from heat-shrinkable plastic, is slipped into place to cover arms 26 and 27, arcuate sections 33 and 35, and fingers 41 and 42. The latter are bent to engage insulating jacket 21 and support extension 43. This arrangement provides protection against tensile and bending stresses on cable 13.
