Know More About Triplett CCTV Coax Connectors
What Are Coax Connectors?
Coax connectors are designed to tail and top coaxial cables. These connectors can be availed in various sizes to suit the cable dimensions. They work in combination to ensure smooth cable transmission. All coax cable connectors available with us are designed to mesh with their host cables. These connectors can perform in challenging work environments, too. They possess durable brass body or zinc body construction, which helps resist factors such as pressure, impact, vibration, high temperature, etc.
What Are Common Types of Coaxial Connectors?
Generally, coaxial connector tools are distinguished into male and female based on their gender. Male connectors are referred to as free connectors or header connectors, which are distinguished by their protruding pin. The pin usually protrudes from the center. The female connectors feature a recessed hole to receive this male connector pin.
The coaxial connectors are distinguished into the following types depending on their designs.
- BNC Connectors: These are used in test instruments, RF equipment, video signals, radio, and television sets. Our BNC connectors are designed for rapid connection and disconnection. We provide BNC connectors for 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm cables. They feature dual bayonet lugs for twisting an interface on the connector, especially the female connector. These connectors are more appropriate up to 4 GHz frequencies.
- F Connectors: Our selection features F-type coax connectors used to conduct electrical signals to screens such as TVs. They can be easily paired for RG59 and RG6 cables for proper connection. These connectors are generally used for over-the-air terrestrial televisions, satellite televisions, and cable modems. With an impedance match of over 75 Ω, these connectors can be used for frequencies above 1 GHz.
- N Connectors: These connectors are medium-sized and mainly used in radio transmission equipment. They have been used for carrying microwave signals for several years.
- TNC Connectors: These connectors are a variant of BNC connectors, and are used outdoors for connecting mobile phone antennas and radio antennas.
- 7/16 DIN Connectors: The connectors of this type are used for connecting coaxial cables in moisture-laden environments. DIN connectors are used in broadcasting equipment and radio base stations.
How to Connect a Coaxial Cable Connector?
A coaxial cable crimping tool is used to transmit internet and TV signals. These cables are connected to modems or TVs using a coaxial cable crimper. Be it a female coax crimp connector or a male coax connector; they can be attached to the cable by either of the two methods.
Method 1: Stripping Cables
- Stripping Cables: The type of cable you use will be either RG6 or RG59 type. If you not sure of the kind of the cable being used then look for the printed information on the rubber housing of the cable. If you look closely, RG6 cables are thicker than RG59.
- Choose a Matching Connector: You can choose any of the coax crimper connectors offered by us. Coax BNC connectors and F-type coax connectors are two important connectors used in CCTV and internet applications. Both these connectors are offered in crimp and twist-on styles.
- Cut Rubber Tubing from the End of Cable: You can cut the rubber tubing just ½ inch above the cable end. Pull the cut portion to expose the mesh.
- Peel Down the Mesh: You can use a peeler or wire stripping tool to peel down the mesh. Do not cut the cable deeply because this would damage the conductor.
- Trim ¼ Inch Plastic from the Cable End: You can trim the plastic housing around the conductor of the cable using a cable stripper or a razor. Once this is done, you will find a foil-covered copper conductor underneath.
- Insert the Cable in the Connector: You can insert the cable in the connector, and if you find the mesh touching the conductor, ensure to peel it back. Else, this would lead to a weak signal.
Method 2: Using Crimp-on Coax Connectors
- Buy a Crimp Ring Attached Connector: You can choose a crimp ring attached connector. If you do not find the one, buy a connector with separate crimp ring.
- Connect Cable and Coax Connector: Insert the conductor wire into the connector. You can push the conductor till it shows up on the other side of the conductor.
- Use Crimp Tool to Crimp Wire and Connector: You can secure the conductor inside the connector using the GET-301-UT crimp tool. For this, you need to insert the conductor into the crimping tool and squeeze the handle. If you hear a click sound, this means the crimping is complete.
- Clean the Wire Mesh: The wire mesh coming out of the conductor can interfere with wiring or signal. Thus, clean the wire mesh to avoid signal degradation.
