Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: BNC-Buchse
Context: grinding machine
This is from a wiring diagram for a "Horchplatine". On the diagram, a BNC-Buchse lies between the "Horchplatine" and a "Geräuschaufnehmer," one each for the grinding wheel and the regulating wheel.
Thanks for any help, Beth

BNC jack(/connector)
Explanation:
Not a new translation, rather an explanation: BNC stands for "Bayonet Neill Concelman" a bayonet-style connector named after Neill Concelman, as opposed to the "Threaded Neill Concelman" connector. A lesser used alternative is "Bayonet Nut Connector". These connectors are generally used for coax cable. The second URL has decent sketches of a few types.

Cheerio,
Dierk

Thanks to all for your helpful explanations. Special thanks to Dierk for digging up what actually stands behind the letters in the acronym. It obviously won't need translating in this case, but his answer confirms that, and I did want to know. Thanks again to everyone!

BNC Connector


Explanation:
In this context it refers to a male and female pair, ie a complete connector. Of course, you may need to differentiate which one goes where, but connector should cover it. Regards, Iain

BNC jack or BNC socket


Explanation:
Properly speaking, a Buchse here is a jack or socket (female connector). 'Connector' is of course a safe option. BNC may be an acronum, of which there are many possible (apocryhal?) expansions, but no-one uses anything except 'BNC'.

BTW, NA usage is always 'jack', while UK seems to prefer 'socket' - but that sounds very strange to my (NA) ear in this context.
