Title: Air bag connector

Abstract: The igniter connector comprises an insulating housing having a bead-receiving cavity open at one end, a partition in a center of a bottom wall of the cavity, a ferrite bead disposed in the bead-receiving cavity, and holes in the bottom wall of the bead-receiving cavity for insertion of pin terminals, the ferrite bead that is inserted in the bead-receiving cavity and secured in the insulating housing with the ferrite bead having a central opening through which the partition is passed when the ferrite bead is inserted in the bead-receiving cavity, a pair of electrical contacts having receptacle sections for electrical connection with the pin terminals are arranged in contact-receiving cavities disposed between the partition and the ferrite bead inserted in the bead-receiving cavity and wire-connecting sections for connection to electrical wires, and a cover member enclosing the bead-receiving cavity of the insulating housing is latched to the housing and has posts coaxially aligning the receptacle sections of the electrical contacts with the holes for the pin terminals. The cover member is equipped with a pressure device that exerts pressure on the ferrite bead holding it down against the bottom of the bead-receiving cavity.
