Belden Compression Connectors Ensure Performance

Belden introduced a new line of F, BNC, and RCA compression connectors and tools, along with standard or custom-configured cable assemblies.

Belden introduced a new line of F, BNC, and RCA compression connectors and tools, along with standard or custom-configured cable assemblies.

The new compression connectors are tuned to Belden coaxial cable tolerances to ensure maximum signal reliability and performance for audio/video, safety, and security applications, according to the company. The new compression connector tool also ensures a secure, positive compression the first time every time, resulting in faster, easier installations. Other connector systems use a crimping technique which may damage the jacket, dielectric, and wire, resulting in multiple signal leakage points and moisture entry, Belden says.

 

"Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete, single-source field installation solution that includes the cabling, connectors, and tools," said Chris Nieshalla, Belden’s vertical marketing manager for commercial AV products. "With all components guaranteed to work together as a system, installers and integrators will be able to both streamline and improve the overall quality of the installation process, while providing their customer with optimal signal performance."  

 

Three new tools are part of the field-installation solution, including an ergonomically-designed compression tool that features aircraft-grade materials for increased strength, durability and long service life. The compression tool requires less force and no calibration when changing connector or cable types.

 

There are also two stripping tools, one for standard RG/59U and RG/6U Cable (with a heavy-duty spring for stripping quad cable and a built-on flaring tool for RG/6U Cable) and a lighter spring model for more delicate mini coax RGB Cable.

 

Belden’s line of cable assemblies include, in part, breakouts, CCTV camera cables, CATV, patch cords, BNC, composite AV , RCA, and RGB.
