Abstract

This connector provides a quick disconnect of AC lines by the use of spring-loaded contacts on flat surfaces. An individual ground shield follows the center conductor throughout the connector. The ground shield minimizes cross talk between connectors. A bellows-type spring surrounds the center conductor. Together with the outside shield, it provides a noise guard throughout the conductor. The spring-loaded contacts minimize impedance discontinuity along the conductor connector.
