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. The company says that when the new Connectors and Tools are used in combination with Belden Coaxial Cable, they comprise a top-quality, field installation solution designed for reliable signal performance and easy installation. For the ultimate in reliability and installation ease, users should specify Belden Cable Assemblies.
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 new Compression Connector Tool also ensures a secure, positive compression the first time and every time, resulting in faster, easier installations. Other connector systems use a crimping technique which inevitably damages the jacket, dielectric and wire, resulting in multiple signal leakage points and moisture entry.
According to Chris Nieshalla, Belden’s Vertical Marketing Manager for Commercial Audio/Video Products, “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. 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.
