Introducing RF Compression Connectors

We are pleased to announce some new additions to our Cable Assembly product line; RF Compression Connectors.  The connectors are made for coaxial cables and are available in 4.3-10 and Type N, (both male and female).  These RF Compression Connectors have been purposefully released alongside another new product, our Multi-Cable Stripping Tool, (which you can learn more about here).

Introducing RF Compression Connectors

As the name states, these connectors are installed by means of compression and can be quickly and easily installed in the field, (if necessary).  The connectors are installed in a few, simple steps.  After stripping the cable, take the provided o-ring and slide it into the third “valley,” or corrugation of exposed cable. Then, slide the lower half of the connector over the o-ring and onto the cable.  Attach the other half of the connector, and torque it tight.

RF Compression Connectors

Our RF Compression Connectors have excellent test results, with VSWR less than 1.2 and Return Loss less at -21 dB.  The connectors are available in 4.3-10 and Type N variations, both male and female.

RF Compression Connectors Compatibility

Perhaps the most impressive feature of these new connectors, is their wide compatibility.  Our RF Compression Connectors work with CommScope cables, both aluminum and copper, as well as Radio Frequency System (RFS) cables, in addition to our own.

You can see the compatibility specifics in the table below.
