Belden has introduced a new line of F, BNC, and RCA compression connectors and tools, along with the availability of both standard or custom-configured cable assemblies.
Belden’s compression connectors and tools
The new compression connectors are fine-tuned to Belden Coaxial Cable tolerances to ensure maximum signal reliability and performance for audio/video, safety and security applications, the company says. The new Compression Connector Tool also ensures a secure, positive compression the first time and every time, resulting in faster, easier installations.
“Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete, single-source field installation solution that includes the cabling, connectors, and tools – all manufactured to Belden’s exacting standards,” stated Chris Nieshalla, Belden’s vertical marketing manager for commercial audio/video 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.”
Nieshalla also notes that when the Connectors and Tools are used with Belden Cable, Belden extends a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the connectors. If other cable brands are used, a Limited 10-year warranty is offered.
Belden’s entire family of F, BNC, and RCA Series Compression Connectors exceed SCTE Standards for signal ingress, egress and water migration, while providing outstanding aesthetic and strength characteristics. Exceptional connector performance is assured through use of three 360-degree compression rings and a visual confirmation of cable entry. For the BNC and RCA connectors, a unique pop-up pin visually confirms a proper termination and contact point.
Three new tools are part of the field-installation solution:
• An ergonomically-designed Compression Tool that features high quality aircraft-grade materials for increased strength, durability and long service life. This tool requires less force, so it is easier to use than most. The tool requires no calibration when changing connector or cable types and, unlike crimp connectors, there are no additional dies to purchase.
• 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 Cable Assemblies provide the maximum in signal quality and performance. Assembled in a controlled environment to specific factory specifications, Belden’s factory-terminated cable assemblies carry a limited lifetime warranty. Belden assemblies can be purchased for quick delivery through a single, familiar distribution network.
The standard line of Belden Cable Assemblies includes, in part, the following (specials are available upon request):
