04596435 is referenced by 166 patents and cites 6 patents.

The subject invention is directed to a coaxial connector or interseries adapter comprising of at least one metallic center conductor, an insulating captivation bead surrounding said center conductor and at least one metallic coaxial sheath disposed in coaxial relationship to said at least one center conductor. The captivation bead imparts a dramatic increase in mechanical strength to the connector or adapter preventing axial or radial movement of the center contact, in relation to the outer contact, when differential forces are applied between the center and outer contact. The captivation bead in the coaxial connector or adapter can be matched to achieve a low VSWR. Surprisingly the captivation bead allows a dramatic increase in power handling capability.

Title
