Abstract : The patent describes an electrical cable connector for connecting coaxial to coaxial cable, coaxial to single-conductor cable, or single-conductor to single-conductor cable. The connector comprises five basic components; two cable terminations; means such as male and female contact pins for establishing electrical contact between the center conductors of the cables; a cylindrical main body enclosing the electrical contact means and partially enclosing and being screwed to the cable terminations; and waterproofing means such as O-rings. The O-rings are placed between the cable terminations and the main body and also between the cable terminations and the dielectric layer of the cable so that water cannot come inside the connector to make contact with the center conductor contact means. The largest outer diameter is no larger than the outer diameter of the cables so that the connector appears to be a portion of the cable itself as far as size is concerned.
