Abstract

See full text

This invention in its preferred embodiment, is directed to a miniature UHF type plug, more particularly to a female, snap-on coaxial cable connector for use with radio-frequency and other transmission lines, where such connector is electrically connectable to a male, receptacle connector, typically panel mounted and of a design as known in the art. The snap-on, coaxial connector comprises three primary members identified as a circular sleeve, a circular shell, and a circular collar. The circular sleeve includes a plurality of spaced-apart, axially oriented tynes along a first end thereof, and the circular shell consists of a cable crimping section, an intermediate section to be received within the sleeve, and a third section having a like plurality of spaced-apart, axially oriented tynes. The latter tynes are arranged to intermate with the first tynes, and the intermated tynes are adapted to receive the male, receptacle connector. The shell is further characterized by means to retain the axial position of the shell within said sleeve, and by means cooperating with the male, receptacle connector to prevent rotative movement therebetween, where preferably such means comprise a compliant, elastomeric spacer member. The circular retaining collar is provided to receive the sleeve, and cooperative means are further provided between the collar and the sleeve to limit the axial movement therebetween.
