Abstract (en)

The plug connector includes a plug head (5), having an extrusion (51) with internal threads for a hollow screw (7) enclosing the cable. A ring surface (52) in the extrusion contacts an end (32) of the outer cable conductor (3) which is enclosed by a contact sheath (6). The contact sheath has radial springy segments (62) with thickened ends (63), in whose area the inside diameter of the contact sheath is smaller than the diameter of the end of the outer conductor. The screw presses on the segments of the contact sheath, so that they clamp the end of the outer conductor against the ring surface area in the extrusion of the plug head.

Abstract (de)

Ein Steckverbinder, der sich auf einem Koaxialkabel mit glattem Kabelaußenleiter zerlegungsfrei montieren läßt, umfaßt einen Steckerkopf (5), der eine Ausnehmung (51) mit Innengewinde zum Eindrehen einer das Kabel umschließenden Hohlschraube (7) hat. In der Ausnehmung (51) befindet sich eine Ringfläche (52) zur innenseitigen Kontaktierung eines aufgebördelten Endbereiches (32) des Kabelaußenleiters (3). Letzterer wird von einer Kontakthülse (6) umschlossen, die radial federnde Segmente (62) mit verdickten Enden (63) hat. Im Bereich der verdickten Enden (63) ist der Innendurchmesser der Kontakthülse (6) kleiner als der Durchmesser des aufgebördelten Endbereiches (32) des Kabelaußenleiters (3), im übrigen Bereich der Kontakthülse größer. Die Hohlschraube (7) drückt nach dem Zurücklegen eines Spannweges auf die Segmente (62) der Kontakthülse, so daß diese den aufgebördelten Endbereich des Kabelaußenleiters gegen die Ringfläche (52) in der Ausnehmung (51) des Steckerkopfes (5) klemmen kann. <IMAGE>
