Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Cable Connector with Integral Grounding Feature
The drawing shows a cable connector having a modified metal pilot structure
for providing a ground path between machine ground and the cable shield.
The shielded cable 10 terminates at a connector 12 including a contact block
14 at one face. The contact block 14 is surrounded by a metal pilot or guide
structure 16 which cooperates with a complementary metal guide structure 18 on
the second connector 20 to align the contacts in block 14 with pins in a
corresponding block carried by connector 20. Metal pilot structure 18 is
connected directly to a machine ground..
The connector 12 includes a ground strap 22 which is electrically connected
to pilot structure 16 by a conventional rivet 24. The opposite extremity 26 of
ground strap 22 is forced into electrical contact with the shield of cable 10 by a
wedge and clamp screw arrangement 28 to form a direct electrical connection
between the shield and the pilot structure 16.
One or more integral leaf springs 30 are formed in the side walls of the pilot
structure 16. The leaf springs 30 extend outwardly somewhat from the surface
of the pilot structure. When the connectors 12 and 20 are brought together, the
leaf springs form a direct electrical connection between the pilot structures 16
and 18 and thus a ground path between machine ground and the shield on cable 10.
This integral ground structure replaces a conventional ground connection
made through one of the contacts in bl...
