Title: COAXIAL-CABLE-ASSEMBLY, FERRULE, AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME
Abstract:
A coaxial-cable-assembly (10) includes a coaxial-cable (12) and a tubular-ferrule (22). The coaxial-cable (12) includes an outer-jacket (14) and an exposed outer-shield conductor (16). The tubular-ferrule (22) includes a crimp-zone (24), a skirt-zone (28), and a transition-zone (26) therebetween. The tubular-ferrule (22) defines a relief-slot (30) having an open-end (32), a closed-end (34), and two parallel-edges (36) that extend from the crimp-zone (24) to the skirt- zone (28). The crimp-zone (24) is brought into forcible contact with the exposed outer-shield conductor (16) by drawing the two parallel-edges (36) into close proximity, such that a crimp-zone-diameter (40) is reduced to less than a skirt-zone-diameter (42). As a result, the closed-end (34) of the relief-slot (30) forms an aperture (44) in a junction (46) of the transition-zone (26) and the skirt- zone (28).
