Title: ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR FOR CABLES
Abstract:
A kit for splicing two electrical cable assemblies together Includes an electrical connector and a plurality of pin contacts (20), each of which are configured to be connected to a wire of a cable assembly and inserted into the connector. The electrical connector includes a plurality of socket contacts (22) that are each configured to be non-releasably connected to one of the plurality of pin contacts. Each socket contact of the electrical connector includes a bore for receiving a respective pin contact. The bore is configured to permit translation of a respective pin contact after the respective pin contact is non-releasably connected to its respective socket contact so as to accommodate a variable length of the cable assembly wire to which the respective pin contact is attached while maintaining electrical continuity between the respective pin contact of the cable assembly and the respective socket contact of the electrical connector.
