Installing one-piece compression BNC and right angle connectors just got easier. No more uncertainty when inserting the cable into the connector. No more collapsed center pins. No more wasted connectors and rework time on the job.
With the patented InSITE™ Technology feature, now standard on all IDEAL BNC and right angle (90°) compression connectors, field termination of these blind entry connectors is simpler, faster and now provides a higher performance connection for all applications from CCTV to HD Video.
The InSITE window is a 360° clear window which allows the installer to verify that the prepped cable has been inserted far enough into the connector to make contact with the fixed pin-before the connector is compressed.
All IDEAL compression connectors require a ¼” x ¼” industry standard coax preparation. The prepped cable is then inserted into the connector until the folded braiding is visible within the InSITE window. No measuring, no jacket marking, no guesswork – a confident connection every time.
In addition to the InSITE feature, other improvements have been made to our BNC connectors:
Increased ranges of compatible cable jacket diameters – works with more cable types and cable manufacturers
RTQ™ design allows Regular/Tri/Quad shield cables to work in many BNC connectors
Lower cable insertion force – easier to push the connector on to the cable
A redesigned funneled pin entry - centers angled pins, reduces pin collapsing
Accepts 23-18 AWG solid center conductor pins – wider range than the competition
Smoother and easier mating with sockets through increased BNC head travel range
Better return loss performance: >35dB up to 1 GHz, >25dB up to 2 GHz, >20dB up to 3 GHz
Fixed position, gold plated center pin won’t come loose or separate from the connector
Nickel plated brass bodies with color band series identification
Designed for optimal performance on 75Ω coaxial cables
Frequency range: 0 MHz to 3 GHz
>40 pounds cable retention on all models
