AbstractAn environmentally protected connector assembly for terminating a coaxial cable includes a tubular stem insertable between the braided outer conductor and inner insulation of the cable and fixedly carrying a collar and rotatably carrying a coupling nut for connection to a compatible connector component. O-rings provide seals between the coupling nut and the compatible connector and the collar. A resilient sleeve is received over the cable and includes inner ribs adjacent to one end to provide a watertight seal with the cable and having at the other end a lip engaging a flange on the collar to provide a further watertight seal. A retaining shoulder in the sleeve cooperates with an enlarged portion of the insertion end of the stem to retain the sleeve in place and provide further sealing. A crimp ferrule around the cable serves to clamp it on the connector stem.
