Title: Compact sealed and shielded connector

Abstract: A connector (10) is connected to the front end of a cable (11) in a compact connection that provides electrical shielding and a water-tight seal. The connector has a metal main sleeve (30) with a rear end (64) having circular crimps (38,39). One crimp (39) is made against the cable insulator (16) to provide a water-tight seal and the other (38) is made to the cable shielding braid (35) to ground the main sleeve. The main sleeve has a front portion with a crimp (37) that crimps against an elastic seal ring (25) lying in a groove (23) in an insulative body (20) that has contact-holding passages (60).
