Description

  • Die vorliegende Erfindung betrifft einen Steckverbinder gemäss dem Oberbegriff des unabhängigen Patentanspruchs 1 sowie ein Verfahren zum Anschliessen desselben gemäss dem Oberbegriff des unabhängigen Patentanspruchs 6. The present invention relates to a connector according to the preamble of independent claim 1 and a method for connecting the same according to the preamble of the independent patent claim 6.
  • Im "Mikrowellen Magazin" Nr. 3, 1977, vergleicht die Firma GORE & Co. GmbH, D-8011 Putzbrunn bei München, ein flexibles Koaxialkabel mit einem Semi-Rigid-Kabel. In "Microwave Magazine" no. 3, 1977, the company GORE & Co. GmbH, D-8011 Putzbrunn near Munich, a flexible coaxial cable with a semi-rigid cable compares. Im Aufbau zeigt ein solches flexibles Koaxialkabel einen Innenleiter aus 19-fach verlitztem, versilbertem Kupfer. In the structure of such a flexible coaxial cable shows an inner conductor made of 19-fold verlitztem, silver-plated copper. Die Verlitzung ergibt die geforderte Flexibilität und verhindert ein Wandern des Innenleiters innerhalb der dielektrischen Schicht beim Biegen. The stranding provides the required flexibility and prevents migration of the inner conductor within the dielectric layer during bending.
  • Als Dielektrikum wird ein Polytetrafluoräthylen vorgeschlagen, das gestreckt wurde und damit bei einer matrizenähnlichen Struktur einen hohen Luftanteil aufweist. As dielectric, a polytetrafluoroethylene is proposed which has been stretched and thus has a high proportion of air at a matrizenähnlichen structure. Zur Erzielung des notwendigen konzentrischen Aufbaus wird hier das dielektrische Material um den Innenleiter gewickelt. To achieve the required concentric configuration, the dielectric material is wrapped around the inner conductor here.
  • Durch die Abschirmung wird bekanntlich die Abstrahlung auf ein Minimum reduziert. By shielding the radiation is known to be reduced to a minimum. Bei flexiblen Koaxialkabeln müssen die elektrischen Werte auch in der Biegung gewährleistet sein. With flexible coaxial cables, electrical characteristics must be guaranteed even in the bend. Bei dem beschriebenen Koaxialkabel wird dies dadurch erreicht, dass auf die dielektrische Schicht eine versilberte Kupferfolie überlappt gewickelt wurde und diese erste Abschirmung mit einer zweiten Abschirmung aus geflochtenem versilbertem Kupferdraht umfasst wurde. In the described coaxial cable this is achieved in that a silver-plated copper foil was wrapped overlapped on the dielectric layer and this first shield was covered with a second shield made of braided silver-plated copper wire. Zum Schluss wird das derart aufgebaute Kabel mit einem Kunststoff-Aussenmantel versehen. Finally, the thus-constructed cable is provided with a plastic outer jacket.
  • In einer zweiten Veröffentlichung in derselben Zeitschrift "Mikrowellen Magazin" Nr. 4, 1980, wird darauf hingewiesen, dass eine neue Kabelkonstruktion neue Steckverbinder bedeutet. In a second paper in the same journal "Microwave Magazine" no. 4, 1980, it is noted that a new cable construction means new connector. In keiner der beiden Veröffentlichungen ist ein solcher neuer Stecker mit über blosse Andeutungen hinausgehenden Merkmalen beschrieben. In neither of the two publications such a new connector with more than mere hints beyond features is described.
  • Es ist deshalb eine Aufgabe der Erfindung, einen Steckverbinder zu schaffen, der die besonderen Anforderungen von flexiblen Mikrowellen-Koaxialkabeln erfüllt. It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a connector that meets the special requirements of flexible microwave coaxial cables.
  • Erfindungsgemäss wird dies durch einen Steckverbinder mit den Merkmalen im kennzeichnenden Teil des unabhängigen Patentanspruchs 1 erreicht. this is achieved by a connector having the features in the characterizing part of the independent claim 1. According to the invention.
  • Ein Verfahren zum Anschliessen des Steckverbinders ist im unabhängigen Patentanspruch 6 gekennzeichnet. A method for connection of the connector is characterized in the independent claim. 6
  • Ein Ausführungsbeispiel des erfindungsgemässen Steckverbinders wird nachfolgend anhand der Zeichnung erläutert. An embodiment of the inventive connector will be explained below with reference to the drawing. Es zeigen: Show it:
    • Fig. 1 eine Schnittansicht eines erfindungsgemässen Steckverbinders, Fig. 1 is a sectional view of a connector according to the invention,
    • Fig. 2 dieselbe Schnittansicht wie Fig. 1 jedoch mit ebenfalls geschnitten dargestelltem Koaxialkabel, Fig. 2 shows the same sectional view as Fig. 1, but with also cut Pictured coaxial cable,
    • Fig. 3 - 10 Ansichten eines Koaxialkabels mit verschiedenen Montagestufen des Steckverbinders gemäss Fig. 1 und 2. Fig. 3 - 10 are views of a coaxial cable with various stages of assembly of the connector according to FIG. 1 and 2.
  • Das Koaxialkabel 15 gemäss Fig. 2 besteht, von innen nach aussen betrachtet, aus einem Innenleiter 20, einer diesen Innenleiter konzentrisch umfassenden Schicht 21 aus dielektrischem Material, beispielsweise Polytetrafluoräthylen, einer ersten Abschirmung 22 aus versilbertem Kupferband, das sich überlappend auf die Schicht 21 gewickelt ist, einer zweiten Abschirmung 23 aus einem Kupferdrahtgeflecht und einem Aussenmantel 24, beispielsweise auch aus Polytetrafluoräthylen. The coaxial cable 15 of FIG. 2 is viewed from the inside outward, from an inner conductor 20, a concentrically comprehensive these inner conductor layer 21 of dielectric material, such as polytetrafluoroethylene, a first shielding 22 made of silver-plated copper tape which is wound is overlapped on the layer 21 is a second shield 23 made of a copper braid and an outer jacket 24, for example also of polytetrafluoroethylene.
  • Der Koaxial-Steckverbinder 14 besteht aus folgenden Einzelteilen: Einem auf dem Aussenmantel 24 eng anliegenden Nippel 1 mit einem Aussengewinde 1a, einem Kontaktring 2 mit einer radialen Bohrung 13, die als Durchgangsbohrung ausgeführt sein kann, einem Steckergehäuse 3 mit einem zum Aussengewinde la komplementären Innengewinde 3a und mit einer Hülse 3b an dem dem Innengewinde 3a gegenüberliegenden Ende, einem in der Hülse 3b befindlichen Steckerdielektrikum 5, sowie aus einer Ueberwurfmutter 8. Ein Steckerstift 4 mit einer verjüngten Partie 11 weist am steckerinneren Ende einen axialen Hohlraum 12 für den Innenleiter 20 des Koaxialkabels 15 auf. The coaxial connector 14 is composed of the following components: A on the outer casing 24 tightly fitting nipple 1 having an external thread 1a, a contact ring 2 having a radial bore 13, which may be embodied as a through bore, a plug housing 3 with a complementary to the outer thread la internal thread 3a and a sleeve 3b on the the internal thread 3a opposite end, a 3b in the sleeve located plug dielectric 5, as well as a union nut 8. a pin 4 with a tapered section 11 has the plug inner end of an axial cavity 12 for the inner conductor 20 of the coaxial cable 15. Die Hülse 3b und das Steckerdielektrikum 5 sind ebenfalls diametral durchbohrt. The sleeve 3b and the plug dielectric 5 are also pierced diametrically. Diese Bohrung 10 fluchtet im zusammengebauten Zustand mit der verjüngten partie 11 des Steckerstiftes 4. Diese Bohrung 10 ist mit Epoxyharz vergossen, so dass eine radiale Zentrierstütze 9 gebildet ist. This bore 10 is aligned in the assembled state with the tapered portion 11 of the plug pin 4. This bore 10 is molded with epoxy resin, so that a radial centering support is formed. 9
  • In einer umlaufenden Nut 6a in der Aussenwand der Hülse 3b ist ein Sprengring 6 eingesetzt, der in eine umlaufende Nut 8a in der Innenwand der Ueberwurfmutter 8 eingreift und damit die Ueberwurfmutter 8 frei drehbar mit höchstens einem beschränkten axialen Spiel haltert. In a circumferential groove 6a in the outer wall of the sleeve 3b, a snap ring 6 is inserted, which engages in a circumferential groove 8 in the inner wall of the union nut 8 and the union nut 8 freely rotatably supports at most a limited axial play. Schliesslich ist noch eine Dichtung 7 aus elastischem Material, wie Gummi, auf eine Schulter 3c auf der Aussenseite der Hülse 3b aufgelegt. Finally, a seal 7 made of elastic material such as rubber, is placed on a shoulder 3c on the outside of the sleeve 3b.
  • Im zusammengebauten Zustand gemäss Fig. 2 ist der Innenleiter 20 des Koaxialkabels 15 im Hohlraum 12 des Steckerstiftes 4 eingelötet. In the assembled state shown in FIG. 2, the inner conductor 20 of the coaxial cable 15 is soldered in the cavity 12 of the male pin 4. Der Kontaktring 2 liegt auf der zweiten Abschirmung 3 auf und ist mit dieser ebenfalls verlötet. The contact ring 2 rests on the second screen 3 and is also soldered to these. Die Bohrungen 13 dienen einerseits zur optischen Kontrolle der richtigen Lötung, dh, ob das Lötmaterial richtig geflossen ist, und anderseits kann Dampf und das Gas des Flussmittels durch diese Bohrungen 13 abziehen, so dass das Lötmaterial auch genügend platz hat, um sich auszubreiten. The bores 13 serve on the one hand to the optical control of the correct soldering, that is, whether the solder has flowed right, and on the other hand can pull through these bores 13 steam and the gas of the flux, so that the solder material also has sufficient space to spread out.
  • Zum Anschliessen des Steckverbinders 14 an ein Koaxialkabel 15 wird das Koaxialkabel 15 zuerst auf die genaue Länge abgeschnitten. For connecting the connector 14 to a coaxial cable 15, the coaxial cable 15 is first cut to the exact length. Die Schnittfläche 24a muss plan sein. The cut surface must be flat be 24a. Dann wird der Aussenmantel 24 an drei Stellen 31, 32, 33 rundherum eingeschnitten. Then, the outer sheath is cut around it at three points 31, 32, 33 24th Damit entstehen ein äusserer Mantelabschnitt 36, ein mittlerer Mantelabschnitt 35 und ein innerer Mantelabschnitt 34 (Fig. 3). This creates an outer shell section 36, a middle shell section 35 and an inner shell portion 34 (FIG. 3). Als nächstes wird der mittlere Mantelabschnitt 35 entfernt (Fig. 4) und das zutagetretende Geflecht der zweiten Abschirmung 23 wird verzinnt. Next, the average shell portion-35 is removed (Fig. 4) and the outcropping braid of the second shield 23 is tin-plated. Dazu wird ein bei 180° schmelzendes Weichlot verwendet, so dass eine verzinnte Partie 37 entsteht. For this purpose a melting solder at 180 ° is used, so that a tin-plated portion formed 37th Nun wird der äussere Mantelabschnitt 36 entfernt, und über das derart vorbereitete Kabel 15 wird ein Schrumpfschlauch geschoben (dieser ist nicht dargestellt). Now, the outer shell portion 36 is removed, and the thus prepared cable 15 is a heat-shrinkable tube is pushed (this is not shown). Vom Steckverbinder 14 wird nun der Nippel 1 auf den Aussenmantel 24 gesteckt (Fig. 5). From the connector 14 of the nipple 1 is now on the outer sheath 24 inserted (Fig. 5). Anschliessend wird der Kontaktring 2 auf die verzinnte Partie 37 geschoben, bevor nun der innere Mantelabschnitt 34 entfernt wird und der Kontaktring 2 bis zum Aussenmantel 24 hingeschoben werden kann. Subsequently, the contact ring 2 is pushed onto the tin-plated portion 37 before now, the inner skirt portion 34 is removed and the contact ring 2 can be pushed towards to outer sheath 24th Damit wird der Aufbau gemäss Fig. 6 erhalten. Thus, the structure shown in FIG. 6 is obtained. In dieser Phase des Zusammenbaus wird der Kontaktring 2 mit der Abschirmung 23 verlötet. In this phase of the assembly of the contact ring 2 is soldered to the shield 23rd Auch hier wird ein bei 180° schmelzendes Weichlot verwendet. Again, a melt at 180 ° solder is used. Nun wird das Kabel 15 etwa 1,8 mm vor dem Kontaktring 2 abgeschnitten (Fig. 7), und dann wird die Schnittfläche plangedreht, so dass der Kontaktring 2 um 0,1 - 0,2 mm gekürzt wird. Now, the cable 15 is about 1.8 mm cut off before the contact ring 2 (Fig. 7), and then the cut surface is plane rotated so that the contact ring by 0.1 2 - is reduced to 0.2 mm. Durch dieses Vorgehen wird der Innenleiter 20 freigelegt (Fig. 8) und damit kann auch die Kabellänge noch abgestimmt werden. By this procedure, the inner conductor 20 is exposed (Fig. 8), and thus the cable length can still be matched. Dies war bisher bei den bekannten Steckverbindern nicht in einer derart einfachen Weise möglich. This has not been in the known connectors in such a simple manner possible. Gemäss Fig. 9 wird nun der Steckerstift 4 auf den Innenleiter 20 gelötet. According to FIG. 9 of the pin 4 will be soldered onto the inner conductor 20. Dies kann vorteilhafterweise mittels Widerstandlöten geschehen. This can be done advantageously by means of resistance soldering.
  • Das Kabel wird daraufhin in das Steckergehäuse 3 eingeführt, und dieses wird mit dem Nippel 1 verschraubt (Fig. 10). The cable is then inserted into the connector housing 3, and this is bolted to the nipple 1 (Fig. 10). In diesem Zustand kann nun das Kabel und dessen Verbindungsstellen mit dem Steckverbinder überprüft werden. In this state, the cable and its joints can now be examined with the connector. Wenn ein Schrumpfschlauch in der Phase gemäss Fig. 5 auf das Kabel geschoben wurde, kann dieser nun richtig positioniert werden, bevor er mit Heissluft bei etwa 150° C geschrumpft wird. When a heat-shrinkable tube in the phase shown in FIG. 5 has been pushed onto the cable, this can now be correctly positioned before it is shrunk with hot air at about 150 ° C.
  • Schliesslich muss noch die Bohrung 10 mit Epoxyharz vergossen und das Harz aushärten gelassen werden, bevor dann noch der Sprengring 6 eingesetzt, die Dichtung 7 und schlussendlich die Ueberwurfmutter 8 aufgesetzt werden kann. Finally, the hole must still 10 potted with epoxy resin and still before the snap ring 6 then inserted, the seal finally the union nut 8 can be placed 7 and the resin allowed to cure. Für einen abgewinkelten Anschluss, wie er beispielsweise in der DE-A-29 09 577 beschrieben ist, lässt sich der hier dargestellte Steckverbinder ebenfalls verwenden. For an angled connector, as described for example in DE-A-29 09 577, the connectors shown here can also be used. An dem mit dem Steckverbinder durch die Verfahrensschritte gemäss Fig. 3 bis 10 fertiggestellte Kabel wird mit zwei im Abstand voneinander angeordneten Schnitte der Kabelmantel durchtrennt. At the 3 to 10 finished with the connector by the method steps according to FIG. Cable is cut with two spaced-apart sections of the cable sheath. Der Abstand der Schnitte soll wenigstens angenähert die Biegung einschliessen. The spacing of the cuts is to at least substantially enclose the bend. Dann wird das Kabel mit dem kleinst möglichen Biegeradius gebogen, der Kabelmantel entfernt und wenigstens die äussere Abschirmung verzinnt. Then the cable is bent with the smallest possible bending radius of the cable sheath removed and tinned at least the outer shield. Diese Verzinnung wird vorteilhafterweise auch mit Lötzinn vorgenommen, das bei 180° C fliesst. This tinning is carried out advantageously also with solder, which flows at 180 ° C. Der entstandene Bogen kann zum Schluss noch mittels eines Schrumpfformteils abgedeckt werden. The resulting sheet can be covered in the end still means of a shrink molding. Damit kann auf einfache und kostengünstige Weise ein Winkelanschluss gebildet werden, bei dem die Kabellänge abgeglichen werden kann und bei dem die elektrischen Verhältnisse bis zum Stekkerübergang in das Anschlusselement gleichbleibend und beherrschbar sind. For a connection angle can be formed in a simple and inexpensive manner, in which the cable length can be adjusted, and in which the electrical conditions to Stekkerübergang are consistent and controllable in the connection element.
