A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11920903B2) discloses an interposer designed for a conducted electrical weapon. The interposer includes a body with multiple cartridge compartments at one end, each compartment configured to receive a cartridge. These compartments consist of first and second interposer inserts, with the first insert being different from the second. The interposer also features signal pins positioned within the compartments to provide electrical signals to the cartridges.

Furthermore, the patent describes a conducted electrical weapon (CEW) incorporating the interposer. The CEW includes a handle with a bay for inserting a magazine that houses the cartridges. Upon insertion, the magazine couples to the interposer, allowing the cartridges to be received by the compartments. The interposer is electrically connected to a signal generator within the handle to provide electrical signals to the cartridges. Additionally, when the magazine is removed, the interposer remains coupled to the bay, ensuring seamless operation. The design of the interposer and its integration into the CEW aim to enhance the functionality and efficiency of conducted electrical weapons.
