Abstract

See full text

A method of assembling an electrical connector that includes an outer conductor body, an inner conductor and a resilient and deformable insulating sleeve. The method includes providing a bore in the rigid outer conductor body having an inwardly directed substantially annular ridge extending therefrom defining a minimum bore diameter of the outer conductor body. A bore is provided in the insulating sleeve along with a substantially annular recess in the outer surface of the sleeve. The maximum diameter of the insulating sleeve is provided greater than the minimum bore diameter of the outer conductor body when the insulating sleeve is at a rest position. The next step is radially compressing the insulating sleeve to a smaller diameter than at the rest position thereof. Next is inserting the insulating sleeve, while at least partially compressed, into the bore of the rigid outer conductor body to a position in which the rigid outer conductor body ridge is in alignment with the insulating sleeve recess. Finally, the inner conductor is inserted into the insulating sleeve bore.
