Abstract : This report describes an electro-mechanical, low backlash cable connector having a plurality of spring washers disposed within a connector housing. A plurality of spacer washers disposed between each pair of spring washers imparts independent operation to each spring washers and translates shear forces from the entering cable to the connector housing. Both the spring washers and the spacer washers are disposed at an inward angle from the connector housing opening. Such angular disposition allows a cable to freely enter the connector housing. However, upon attempting to withdraw the cable, the spring washers bite into the cable thereby preventing its egress. (Author)
