  • Patent number: 6019622
    Abstract: Provided is a termination coaxial connector, having a wide frequency band, which is capable of handling digital signals. A coaxial F-type receptacle connector connects to a coaxial F-type plug connector. The receptacle connector principally comprises an outer conductor 1, a insulating sliding tube 2 which is accommodated inside the outer conductor so as to slide therein, a securing member 6 for securing the insulating sliding tube to the outer conductor, and a center conductor 5 which is supported in the center of the securing member 6 The insulating sliding tube further comprises a coiled spring 4 and a termination element 3, the insulating sliding tube being ordinarily forced outwards by the expansive force of the coiled spring, but being pushed between the center conductor and the termination element when a plug connector is inserted, whereby the electrical connection is broken, the termination is cancelled and both connectors are connected.
