Abstract

The invention relates to a coaxial plug connector for communications technology, in particular in motor vehicles, comprising a plug (1) on which an interlocking device (10) is externally mounted, and a coupler (21) with interlocking means (27) on its outer surface. Downstream of the plug and socket connection in the direction of the axis (14) of insertion there is arranged on one side the bush (5) of the plug (1) and the external conductor of the coupler (21) and on the other the interlocking device (10) and the interlocking means (27) which engage in each other and are mutually in contact with respect to the internal conductor of the contact (6) and the fixed contact (25). The interlocking device (10) is a locating spring which is mounted at one point (9) in the vicinity of the insulating support (8) to the housing (2) of the plug (1), extends with at least one finger (12, 13) along the bush (5) and has at the tip of the finger (12, 13) a projection (16) counter to the axis (14) of insertion. The fingers (12, 13) extend rearwardly across that point (9) to form levers (18, 19) which can be pressed against the rear component (3) of the housing (2), thereby causing the fingers (12, 13) to pivot resiliently outwards. The interlocking means (27) on the coupler (21) are formed by an external projection or by a notch, behind or in which the fingers (12, 13) engage with the projection (16) thereof.

Description

The invention is based on a coaxial connector with the in the preamble of claim 1 specified physical features. Such a Connector is known for communications technology applications "IEC connector" known (IEC 169-16). With such an IEC connector is the outer conductor of the coupler, which is also referred to as a socket, conical inside and takes the longitudinally slotted sleeve of the plug on, which by a union nut provided on the connector, which on an external thread of the coupler is rotated, pulled into the coupler is under elastic constriction of the sleeve of the plug. The well-known IEC connector has proved its worth. With the increasing introduction of communication technology in automobiles (radio receivers, cell phones, cassette players, CD players, on-board computers, distance warning devices, navigation systems, telemetric road toll collection systems, etc.) there is a need for coaxial connectors which are cheaper than the IEC connectors, can be miniaturized and among the cramped Installation conditions in the automobile are easy to assemble and handle.

From GB 2 139 018 A are coaxial connectors with snap lock known, consisting of a to be attached to the housing of a device Connector part in which the outer conductor is longitudinally slit in several segments and these segments have a head start at which they put into the outer conductor of a coaxial cable Couplers are inserted and snap into an annular groove. The locking effect this snap lock is inevitably not reliable because of it can only be unlocked again by train.

The present invention has for its object to meet the need for inexpensive, easy-to-lock and easy-to-unlock and yet firmly held connectors for wiring in vehicles.

This object is achieved by connectors with the in claims 1 and 2 specified features. Advantageous developments of the invention are Subject of the dependent claims.

To connect the connector according to the invention particularly conveniently and to be able to separate, plugs and couplers are different from the IEC connector not screwed to each other, but to each other by a catch spring locked. This detent spring is attached to the connector housing, and preferably set in an annular groove, which is on the outside on the Housing of the plug is located. The ring groove takes the detent spring around the thru axle of the plug rotatable but immovable in the longitudinal direction of the axis on. It is conveniently located near the in the connector housing provided insulation support at the transition from the rear part of the connector housing to the sleeve forming the front part of the connector housing. From the groove at least one finger extends along the outer surface of the sleeve. The outer conductor of the coupler, also known as a socket, takes the sleeve of the plug, then the fingers extend on the outer surface of the sleeve along preferably up to the front end of the sleeve and can with their projection on the sleeve. If in this case the plug is in the Outer conductor of the coupler is pushed, the fingers are lifted by it, slide along the outer conductor of the coupler and finally snap behind the intended locking means. However, takes the sleeve of the Plug the outer conductor of the coupler, then the fingers extend along the circumferential surface of the sleeve preferably up to its front edge addition, one at the protruding end of the at least one finger the axis of the plug directed projection is provided. Will the plug pushed onto the coupler, the protrusions of the fingers move on the outside along the coupler until it connects to one on the outside of the coupler intended incision or projection, in particular hit a collar; as the connector is pushed further onto the coupler, the fingers by sliding onto the waistband, bent radially outward, and as soon as the protrusions of the fingers have overcome the collar, they spring radially inwards and effect the locking.

In the connector according to the invention in contrast to the IEC connector allows the sleeve of the plug to be pushed over the outer conductor of the coupler a particularly compact connector. With the outside diameter of the coaxial cable to which the connector is attached are located there minimal external dimensions essentially firm, both in terms of the rear Part of the connector housing, which is mounted on the jacket of the coaxial cable is, as well as with respect to the front part of the connector housing, which as Sleeve is formed and coaxially surrounds the inner conductor contact pin. In contrast the coupler interacting with the plug can be scaled down more easily, especially if it is a device socket on the housing an electrical or electronic device is provided; with a Coupler, which is inserted into the sleeve of the connector, is a miniaturization of the coaxial connector is easiest possible.

The fingers are used to unlock and disconnect the connector going beyond the point (preferably a groove) at which the detent spring is set to extend backwards to form levers which are extended by the Shell surface of the rear housing part of the connector have a distance, so that they can be pressed against the outer surface of the rear housing part. If you do that, swing your fingers outwards and give a depression, into which they were locked, or a ledge, especially one Bund, behind which they were locked, free.

The detent spring is preferably made of plastic and is made by injection molding manufactured. The catch spring has a ring or a bracket Brace which one or which in the groove on the outside of the connector housing is engaged and from which or from which in one direction the fingers and in the other direction the levers for operating the fingers going out.

It is best to have exactly two diametrically opposed fingers, to which belong two diametrically opposed levers. This allows the connector to be used even in tight spaces by squeezing and pulling apart easily and quickly, easier and faster than with a union nut, with the additional advantage that that despite the inevitable vibrations that occur in the automobile, the detent spring keeps the connector locked unchanged, whereas a screw connection can loosen. In addition, the provided snap connection is cheaper than a screw connection.

Even with fingers arranged on one side only one can be sufficient achieve reliable interlocking of the connector and coupler. Unilateral Fingers are particularly useful in an advantageous development of the invention, in which the clip provided for snapping onto the fingers to accommodate several connector housings next to each other as a multiple clamp is trained. This measure is advantageous primarily because this way several coaxial connectors side by side to a coherent Group can be summarized. This will not only Bring order into an otherwise possible tangle of cables; handle group of plugs bound together in this way, with a handle on the associated coupler and the lock The different plugs and couplers can be connected by a single common Part. This embodiment of the invention is favorable in With regard to small dimensions, easy handling and inexpensive production. The plugs can be kept floating in the multiple clip. The clip is preferably part of the entirety of the connector housing encompassing frame or the entirety of the connector housing encompassing half-shell, creating the entirety of the connector housing more support and easier handling. At this The frame or on this half-shell is preferably not only seen as a multiple clamp in front, but two multiple brackets, which in the direction of The longitudinal axis of the connector have a distance from one another; also this measure contributes to easier handling of the plug as a whole in and enables the arrangement of several fingers side by side, which have a common lever for their operation to have.

A bracket with detent spring that fits on a whole group of plugs be made in one piece by injection molding from plastic. You put them with double, triple or quadruple brackets, then you can use one single type of single plugs as required very easily double, triple or Form quad connector.

With such multiple plugs, there is the option of locking To attach fingers to save space, namely so that they are in the gusset Space between adjacent connector housings come to rest, so that the multiple connector is hardly thicker despite the locking means as a single plug without locking means. Another advantage is that in this embodiment the fingers in the gusset spaces are arranged sunk and therefore when handling in narrow Cable rooms or when pulling into cable harnesses hardly get caught anywhere can initiate, so that the risk of unintentional unlocking is reduced becomes. This development of the invention is particularly suitable in connection with couplers, which are combined into a corresponding unit are protrusions or cuts in the gusset between adjacent couplers has behind which or in which the fingers with their projections form-fitting can intervene.

The attachment of the connector to a coaxial cable can be known Way. E.g. can the rear housing part with a self-tapping or even better be equipped with a self-tapping thread with which it is screwed directly onto the jacket of the coaxial cable. Preferably the rear housing part of the plug is designed as a crimp sleeve and is crimped onto the cable jacket. A crimp connection can be produced faster than a screw connection and offers Adequate tensile strength in automotive conditions The inner conductor contact pin is preferably also designed as a crimp sleeve to the inner conductor of the coaxial cable with sufficiently secure contact to be able to connect the inner conductor contact pin of the plug.

The same or corresponding parts are in the different figures designated with matching reference numbers.

Figure 1 shows a coaxial connector 1, the one-piece housing 2 as an outer conductor is formed and has a rear part 3, which has a coaxial cable 4th takes up, and has a front part 5, which is designed as a sleeve and in coaxial arrangement surrounding a serving as inner conductor pin 6, which is designed as a hollow pin and the inner conductor of the coaxial cable, not shown 4 records. Between the rear part 3 and the front part 5 of the housing 2 there is a central housing section 7, which has a inside Insulating support 8 carries, in which the contact pin 6 is inserted, and which on the Outside has an annular groove 9 into which one is made by injection molding from plastic manufactured locking spring 10 is inserted. The detent spring 10 consists of a Ring groove 9 engaging ring 11, from which two fingers 12 and 13 forward go out, which are arranged diametrically with respect to the axis 14, the Bearing surface of the sleeve 5 and protrude beyond the front edge 15. The fingers 12 have in the section projecting beyond the edge 15 and 13 each have a projection 16 directed against the axis 14, on which followed by a ramp 17. In the flight of fingers 12 and 13 goes from the ring 11 in the rearward direction a lever 18 or 19, which extends at a distance from the rear part 3 of the connector housing.

The rear part 3 of the connector housing is designed as a crimp sleeve. To the Attaching connector 1 to coaxial cable 3 is first a piece of the cable jacket removed, thereby exposing the outer cable 20, which is shown in the Example consists of a metal mesh. The outer cable 20 is after folded over at the back so that it comes to rest on the cable sheath, which is from Cable outer conductor freed cable dielectric is removed and in this way a piece of the inner cable is exposed and the cable prepared in this way from behind inserted into the connector 1 until it stops and the rear part 3 of the connector housing by crimping on the cable jacket and the cable outer conductor 20 and the inner cable by crimping in the hollow inner contact pin 6 set.

The coupler 21 shown in Figure 2 is shown as a device socket, the one-piece Housing forms the outer conductor and with a housing wall 22 of the device in question is connected. There is an insulating support 23 in the coupler 21, in which an inner conductor contact socket provided with two longitudinal slots 24 25 is held, which is connected to a conductor 26 leading into the device. An annular collar 27 is located on the outside of the coupler 21.

If the coupler 21 and the plug 1 are plugged together, then the slides Sleeve 5 over the outer conductor of the coupler 21 and at the same time the contact pin 6 inserted into the inner conductor contact socket 25, which is elastic expands. To ensure good electrical contact between the outer conductor of the To achieve coupler 21 and the sleeve 5, the sleeve 5 should preferably be designed in this way be that it can be expanded elastically, be it that it is correspondingly thin-walled, be it in that it is slit lengthways is. As an alternative or in addition, there can be good contact between the ends the plug outer conductor and the outer conductor of the coupler 21 thereby can be achieved that the projections 16 engaging behind the collar 27 are not only have bevels on one side, but on the other Have run-off slopes (Fig. 1) with which you can snap the outer conductor into place pull against a stop formed on the coupler 21.

While plugging together, fingers 12 and 13 hit with their bevels 17 on the collar 27 are spread because of the inclined surfaces 17 and pushed over the collar 27 until the projections 16 behind the Snap the collar resiliently against the thru axle 14 (see FIG. 3). To separate the plug connection, press the levers 18 and 19 in the direction of the arrows 28 and 29 together, spreading fingers 12 and 13. Subsequently you pull them back over the collar, making the connector 1 total taken away and pulled away.

The exemplary embodiment in FIG. 4 shows a particular advantage of the invention clear: The fact that the connector 1 by pressing the levers 18 and 19 can be unlocked, it is possible to reset the coupler 21 and thereby protected to accommodate in a recess 28 of the housing 29.

Three plugs 1, similar to those shown in Figure 1, can be made using one they overlap common locking device 10 to a triple connector can be summarized as shown in Figure 5. Details of a such locking device 10 result from FIGS. 5 to 10. The locking device 10 has a frame which is approximately in plan view is rectangular and has two triple clips 31 on its two long sides and 32, which receive the three connectors 1 in parallel next to each other. In the a triple clip 31, the connector 1 is engaged with its annular groove 9 or clipped into the other triple clamp 32 which is attached to the connector housing subsequent crimp sleeve 3 or the coaxial cable emerging therefrom snapped in or clipped in. The locking device 10 holds the three Plug 1 in this way into a manageable unit. The Locking device 10 is also in this embodiment as a detent spring trained and for this purpose has two fingers 12 and 13, which are parallel run to each other and from that leg of the frame of the locking device 10 go out, which forms the back of the triple bracket 31. The levers 18 used to operate the two fingers 12 and 13 are through a web 33 connected to each other so that the two fingers 12 and 13 through Pressure on the web 33 can be operated together. The web 33 is in the Area of a window 34 provided in the frame.

The associated couplers 21 are - as shown in Figures 11 to 14 - to a triple coupler with an integrally cast outer conductor. On one side of the triple coupler are in the gussets 35, which exist between adjacent couplers 21, projections 36, which however are not so high that they protrude from the gussets 35. The projections 36 have inclined surfaces 37 on which the fingers 12 and 13 when plugging together the connector 1 with the couplers 21 slide on until they protrude 16 snap behind the projections 36 and a positive lock cause.

In contrast to the first embodiment, take in this embodiment the outer conductor of the coupler 21, the outer conductor 5 of the connector 1. Nevertheless, the construction of the connector remains compact because the fingers 12 and 13 sunk in the gussets 35.

The outer conductor of the triple coupler is preferably made of die cast. Of the middle coupler 21 is on the outer conductor with a longitudinal rib 38 provided which serves as a carrier for coding.
