Title
(EN) FLAT CABLE-CONNECTOR HAVING IMPROVED CONTACT SYSTEM
(FR) CONNECTEUR POUR CABLE PLAT AYANT UN SYSTEME AMELIORE DE CONTACT
Abstract
(EN)
The electronic connector assembly (10) in which multiple fine gage, closely spaced ground and signal wires of a matched impedance flat cable (12) are gang terminated on centers by an improved crimp design and method. Each of the many wires in the cable is mechanically crimped by an applicator tooling (36, 48) into a contact (22) which is narrow and thin enough to enable all of the wires to be terminated on the same close centers they have in the cable. The wire contacts can be made with great precision from uniform flat metal stock having the necessary narrowness, thinness, hardness and strength to serve also as high performance output spring terminals for the connector. The metal stock does not have to be as thick as the diameter of the wires to be terminated.
(FR)
Une technique et un dessin améliorés de sertissage crimp permettent de regrouper et de terminer sur des centres de multiples fils de mise à la terre et de signal à calibre fin et étroitement espacés d'un câble plat (12) à impédance adaptée d'un assemblage (10) connecteur électronique. Chaque fil de la pluralité de fils contenus dans le câble est mécaniquement serti par crimp par un outillage applicateur (36, 48) dans un contact (22) assez étroit et mince pour permettre à tous les fils d'être terminés sur les mêmes centres rapprochés qu'ils ont dans le câble. Les contacts des fils peuvent être réalisés avec une grande précision à partir d'un matériau métallique uniforme et plat qui présente l'étroitesse, la minceur, la dureté et la résistance requises pour servir également comme cosse-câbles de sortie à ressort de haute performance pour le connecteur. Il n'est pas nécessaire que le matériau métallique soit aussi épais que le diamètre des fils que l'on veut terminer.
