Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9937000A1] An intermediate connector (6) for engaging a surface mount connector (5) and a cable connector (4) contains conductive terminals (8) in a body portion (7). The body portion is cooperatively defined by distinct and separate terminal contact support portions that are affixed to opposite ends of the connector terminals. The support portions may be affixed to the connector terminals from different directions and this eliminates the need for a complex, moulded connector housing. The support portions and the terminals are held together and aligned together by a retainer and a spacer is provided to maintain a desired spacing between the terminals to the connector.
