Abstract : This patent covers a co-axial radio frequency flexible connector system for use in traversing through and/or over sheaves, hull fittings, cable handling equipment and machinery, and reeling operations. The system comprises a bellows enclosing a spring assembly. The bellows provides a fixed length electrical path which remains the same during flexing, tension and compression. The system is radially rigid to inhibit rotation of components. Electrical contact engagement is enhanced by having the components under a pre-determined amount of compression when assembled and in use. (Author)
