Abstract

This coaxial cable connector has two rear arms 11 and 13. These are soldered to the expanded, woven-wire shield 15 of coaxial cable 17 by a heat-shrunk, clear plastic sleeve 18 having a solder ring. The center conductor 19 of cable 17 is soldered in recess 21 of axial conductor 23 of the connector. Plastic annulus 25 insulates the cylindrical body 27 from conductor 23. The body has two fingers 29 and 31 projecting beyond tapered insulation 33 to overhang conductor 23. Latching tabs 35 and 37, with adjacent cylindrical body wall 39, provide mounting means. Interior facing metal parts are insulated from each other by insulation 41 and 43. This coaxial connector has proper ratios of geometry to give matched impedance. This connector can be mated with a 90 degree rotated identical connector.

Coaxial Cable Connector

This coaxial cable connector has two rear arms 11 and 13. These are soldered to the expanded, woven-wire shield 15 of coaxial cable 17 by a heat- shrunk, clear plastic sleeve 18 having a solder ring. The center conductor 19 of cable 17 is soldered in recess 21 of axial conductor 23 of the connector. Plastic annulus 25 insulates the cylindrical body 27 from conductor 23. The body has two fingers 29 and 31 projecting beyond tapered insulation 33 to overhang conductor 23. Latching tabs 35 and 37, with adjacent cylindrical body wall 39, provide mounting means. Interior facing metal parts are insulated from each other by insulation 41 and 43. This coaxial connector has proper ratios of geometry to give matched impedance. This connector can be mated with a 90 degree rotated identical connector. The fingers ride on the sides of the outer cylindrical body and the axial connectors slide by each other, receiving a normal force supplied the elastic dielectric.
