  • Patent number: 10404018
    Abstract: A connector includes a conductor engager, coupler-driver and a compressor-body. A coupler is disposed over and engages a grounding end of the conductor engager while a torque drive member rotationally drives the coupler to threadedly engage an interface port. Threaded engagement of the coupler causes the conductor engager to move forwardly toward the interface port and the torque drive member to move rearwardly relative to the conductor engager. Rearward movement of the torque drive member causes a compressor to slide axially over plurality of radially compliant fingers of the compressor-body. The compliant fingers are displaced radially inward to compress a prepared end of the coaxial cable, i.e., an outer conductor and a radially compliant outer jacket, against a tubular-shaped retention end of the conductor engager. Compression of the prepared end connects the coaxial cable to the connector.

  • Patent number: 10044153
    Abstract: An electrical connector for coaxial conductor includes a shell, a first cap, a second cap, a conducting member and a conductor. The first cap and the second cap are in contact with each other and simultaneously located in the shell. The conducting member has an end pressing against the first cap and another end against the second cap. The conductor is extended through the second cap, such that a section of the conductor that is projected into the second cap is connected to the conducting member. With the shell, the first cap, the second cap, the conducting member and the conductor assembled in the above manner, the number of parts for the electrical connector is decreased to enable a reduced overall volume of the electrical connector.
