  • Patent number: 10665368
    Abstract: A cable support for receiving and supporting a cable that includes a plurality of conductors extending along the length of the cable and arranged along the width of the cable, includes: a cane-shaped base having a substantially straight base portion and a curved base portion. The cane-shaped base includes a cable-side major surface and an opposing back-side major surface. At least a first portion of the back-side major surface in the curved base portion faces a second portion of the back-side major surface in the straight base portion. A plurality of discrete spaced apart side walls are disposed on the cable-side major surface along each longitudinal edge of the cane-shaped base. At least one side wall is disposed on the straight base portion and at least one side wall is disposed on the curved base portion.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8770990
    Abstract: A plug style connector has an outer connector housing with an internal passage which accommodates a cable assembly. A plurality of multi-wire cables extend through a wire organizer that arranges the cables in a preselected arrangement. Exposed free ends of the conductors of the wires are terminated to multiple circuit boards which are separated in a preselected spacing by a spacer member. The spacer member and wire organizer have flat opposing surfaces that define boundaries of a body portion formed by the application of a hot melt to the cables, the hot melt adheres to the wire organizer and the spacer to hold the cable wires and their associated circuit boards in place for correct insertion into the connector housing.
