  • Patent number: 8734025
    Abstract: A cable termination device may include one or more components that are generic to multiple types and/or sizes of cable. The device may further comprise one or more components that are specific to a particular cable type and/or size. The cable-generic components can be combined with cable-specific components applicable to the particular cable type and/or size so as to assemble a termination device attached to an end of a cable of that particular type and/or size. The cable-generic components could alternatively be combined with cable-specific components applicable to a different cable type and/or size so as to assemble a termination device attached to an end of a cable of that different type and/or size.

  • Patent number: 8690603
    Abstract: A coaxial cable connector includes tubular post, a coupler secured over an end of the tubular post for securing the connector to an appliance, and an outer body secured to the tubular post. An electrical grounding path is maintained between the coupler and the tubular post whether or not the coupler is tightly fastened to the appliance. The electrical grounding path is provided by a resilient, electrically-conductive grounding member disposed between the tubular post and the coupler. Alternatively, the connector includes conductive grease at a point where mating portions of the tubular post and coupler have closely matching dimensions.

  • Publication number: 20140030918
    Abstract: A coaxial probe is revealed. A protective sleeve is mounted in a sleeve port of a main sleeve. A leaning flange projecting inward is formed on a bottom end of a sleeve port of the main sleeve. The leaning flange is stopped and positioned by a stopping flange on an upper part of the protective sleeve. A probe is disposed on a sleeve port of the main sleeve and is passed through a sleeve port of a protective hole. Thus the probe is hidden in the protective sleeve. After the protective sleeve being in contact with a coaxial connector to be detected, the probe is moved to project from the protective sleeve for detecting the coaxial connector. Thereby damages of the probe caused by impact force received can be avoided.
