Description

The present invention relates to an improvement in an electrical connector for cable connection for electrically connecting a cable and a cable, or a cable and a printed wiring board.

    Conventionally, various types of electrical connectors for connecting cables and cables, or cables and printed wiring boards, etc., have been used. Particularly, conventional electrical connectors for connecting a plurality of coaxial cables are described below. Is used.

FIG. 7 is a conceptual perspective view illustrating a procedure for connecting a plurality of coaxial cables to an electrical connector described later.

First, a plurality of coaxial cables 1 having one end exposed in the order of the center conductor 1a, the nonconductor 1b, the outer conductor 1c, and the outer sheath 1d are prepared, and each outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1 is connected to a pair of upper and lower connecting members ( A pair of conductive plates) 2 and 3 are juxtaposed at a predetermined pitch. Thereafter, the pair of connecting members 2 and 3 and the outer conductor 1c of each coaxial cable 1 are connected by soldering.

  Next, as shown in the perspective view of FIG. 8, a pair of connecting members 2 and 3 are arranged in a positioning recess 6 formed on the upper surface of the housing 5 of the electrical connector 4 functioning as a plug connector. The central conductor 1a of the cable 1 is placed on the connection terminals of the corresponding contacts 7 arranged in the housing 5 at a predetermined pitch. Thereafter, the center conductor 1a of each coaxial cable 1 and the connection terminal of the corresponding contact 7 are fixed by fixing means such as caulking or soldering.

Next, as shown in the perspective view of FIG. 9, the housing 5 is covered with a metal shell 8 as shown by an arrow to be fitted and supported. As a result, as shown in the perspective view of FIG. 10, the connecting member 3 (FIG. 9). The upper surface of the coaxial cable 1 is pressed by the tongue piece 8a of the metal shell 8 to be fixed in the housing 5, and the outer conductor 1c (FIG. 7) of each coaxial cable 1 and the metal shell are connected via the tongue piece 8a pressed against the connecting member 3 on the upper surface. 8 is electrically connected, thereby completing the electrical connector 4 to which a plurality of coaxial cables 1 are connected.

The connection between the pair of connecting members 2 and 3 and the metal shell 8 described above may be connected by soldering in addition to the above-described press-contact connection by the tongue piece 8a.

The contacts 7 of the electrical connector 4 described above are connected to corresponding contacts of a receptacle connector mounted on a printed wiring board (not shown), and the metal shell 8 is also connected to the metal shell of the receptacle connector. And connected to a ground terminal of a printed wiring board (not shown).

  By the way, the above-described conventional electrical connector has a structure in which the outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1 and the pair of connecting members (a pair of conductive plates) 2 and 3 are connected by soldering. At the time of attachment, the melted solder impregnates the outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1, so that when the solder is cooled and solidified, the outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1 is cured and the flexibility of the portion is significantly reduced.

As described above, when the outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1 is hardened and its flexibility is remarkably lowered, the manageability of the entire coaxial cable 1 is lost. For example, in a narrow housing such as a mobile phone or a small computer. When assembling the electrical connector, there is a problem that the workability is remarkably lowered.

Further, in the conventional electrical connector 4, the outer conductor 1c of the coaxial cable 1 and the connecting members 2 and 3 are connected through a soldering process, so that the number of assembling processes is large, and this causes an increase in cost when manufacturing the electrical connector. It was.

  In view of the circumstances described above, an object of the present invention is to provide an electrical connector that improves the manageability of a cable to be connected and reduces the manufacturing cost.

In order to solve the above-described problem, in the present invention, at least a housing provided with a contact connected to the central conductor of the coaxial cable, and a metal shell that is fitted to the housing and connected to the outer conductor of the coaxial cable are provided. Yes, and the an electrical connector to connect directly caulked via the coupling crimping means outer conductor and with said metallic shell of the coaxial cable, the coupling crimping means consists of a metal plate member and the plate member having conductivity And a caulking protrusion for positioning and supporting the outer conductor of the coaxial cable, and an insertion hole for inserting the caulking protrusion is formed in the metal shell. that by caulking the caulking projections projecting from the hole and so as to connect the coaxial cable outer conductor and said metal shell electrically And butterflies.

According to the electrical connector of the present invention described above, the outer conductor of the coaxial cable and the metal shell are connected by caulking directly through the connecting caulking means, and the connecting caulking means includes a conductive metal plate and The metal shell includes a caulking protrusion that is erected in a comb-like shape and positions and supports the outer conductor of the coaxial cable. The metal shell is formed with an insertion insertion hole for inserting the caulking protrusion. Since the outer conductor of the coaxial cable and the metal shell are electrically connected by caulking the caulking protrusion protruding from the hole , solder is not used for the connection between the outer conductor and the metal shell. For this reason, the outer conductor of the coaxial cable is not impregnated with solder, and the flexibility thereof is not impaired. When performing assembly work of the electrical connector of the type computer narrow enclosure of the like, the workability can be significantly improved. In addition, since there is no soldering process in the connection between the outer conductor of the coaxial cable and the metal shell, the number of assembly processes is reduced, thereby significantly reducing the manufacturing cost of the electrical connector and providing an inexpensive electrical connector.

  Hereinafter, an embodiment of the electrical connector according to the present invention will be described in detail.

  FIG. 1 is a fragmentary sectional view showing an electrical connector 10 according to the present invention, and the same parts as those in FIG.
