7/8" EIA Connector for 1-5/8" Coaxial Cable, Gas Barrier O-ring sealing, Brass/Silver

Rev : B | Rev date : 07 May 2024

Radio Frequency Systems line of high performance coaxial cable connectors are designed specifically to provide the highest quality connector-cable interface while simplifying and speeding up the attachment of connectors to HELIFLEX® coaxial cables. RFS connectors are fully tested for mechanical and electrical compliance specifications. They are available in all popular cable sizes in a variety of mating interfaces. To join two cables with EIA connectors, two identical socket connectors are installed on either end of the cables to be joined, and a coupling element is used to make the connection of the center conductor. The coupling element must be ordered separately with the exception of the S-Line male versions that have a captivated coupling element. Connectors are available in sizes matching the nominal cable size. EIA connectors provide optimal power handling for the complete transmission line system.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Solderless - Captivated spring finger contacts permit quick, easy and precise solderless installation utilizing only basic hand tools. Avoids the high impedance risk associated with soldering.
  • Corrosion-Proof Silver Plated Contacts - Featured even on standard connectors. Provide improved contact resistance and lower intermodulation.
  • Outstanding Electrical Performance - Metal to Metal contact between cable and connector - no plastic parts used. Secure connection highly resistant to pull-off or twist-off provides long-term mechanical integrity. Resistant to intermodulation after temperature cycling.
  • Easy to Install - No special tools needed. Only basic hand tools required. No additional costs to the installer.
