As node splits, tap replacements, or new installations in a broadband HFC coax network require connector performance to meet or surpass return and insertion loss thresholds, it is critical that connectors be installed properly and remain free from moisture damage.

Hardline connectors from PPCC offer superior quality and durability, meeting the rigorous demands of CATV cable networks requiring high speed data transfer as well as telephone services at frequencies above 1 GHz.

Hardlines may have once been ubiquitous in broadcasting and radio communication systems; today they’re almost nonexistent; but at one time these thick cables were part of broadcasting and radio transmission systems. Their thick shielding combined with foam dielectrics required special connectors that mechanically secured them – this can make installation faster with the right tools! When installing hardline connectors it is imperative that proper compression tools are used so as not to damage or cause premature failure of these connections – Belden offers their VT200 as an innovative yet reliable method of compressing hardline connectors quickly and reliably when installing hardline cables – it offers installers an efficient and versatile means of compressing wide variety of hardline connectors simultaneously!

Hardlines may conjure images from action movies where someone demands someone cut the hardline cable. Though not as common, hardline cables still exist within broadcasting and communication industries today. These cables resemble coaxial cable in that they feature solid shielding and foam dielectrics for added insulation, as well as being capable of handling high speed data and telephone service. When installing such cables it’s essential that appropriate tools are used. Without proper maintenance, connectors could become loose and cause poor performance or bodily harm. A dull blade could leave score marks on conductor core or outer sheath and weak spots; but thanks to Belden’s VT series compression tool installers now have an efficient way of compressing these connectors quickly and safely.

Hardline cable is a type of coaxial cable with solid shielding that can withstand high power applications. Often found in broadcasting and radio communications, hardlines often utilize foam dielectric and metal sheathing insulation that protects conductors inside from moisture damage or environmental elements that might otherwise degrade them over time.

Prior art compression style connectors for hardline coaxial cables were often susceptible to deforming and damaging their sheath during attachment to the connector, potentially impacting performance and rendering them inoperable. A new axially compressible electrical connector is being developed as a solution.

This connector comprises of a body, coupling nut and compression can. A nonmetallic sleeve is mounted into the body permanently with its integral insulator portion holding contact arms (311-314) for seizing inner conductor of coaxial cable. Furthermore, its front end contains an opening with reduced diameter. Made from materials such as ULTEM 2200 glass filled polyetherimide.

Rear Compression Ring 209 is installed onto the insulator portion of the sleeve and features an angled surface 413 that forms an angle of approximately 45 degrees from the connector’s axis. This surface guides bared outer conductor of coaxial cable 1000 between Sleeve 302 and Actuator 412 when being inserted into connector.

As coaxial cable is pushed into a connector 200, its rear compression ring 209 moves axially forward to meet its protruding surface 508 on one of its outer conductors (ferrule 408) and keep them from seizing the bared outer conductor of its cable. This prevents any chances for seizure through seizing at its outer conductor of which ramped surface 509 is located radially inward on compression ring 209 by protrusion from ferrule 408 moving towards its front as its protruding surface 508 slides over protrusion 508 on an outward facing ferrule 408 side so as not to seize cable outer conductor seizing its conductor when connected by cable to connector 200 – thus keeping ferrule 408 from moving toward its front side radially forward preventing seizing its own ferrule 408 ferrule from moving towards its front side thus seizing its own conductor cable cable conductor while remaining safe from move toward its front side when connected by cable cable to connector 200 thereby seizing outer conductor cable cable conductor bared outer conductor seizing bared outer conductor cable cable cable as soon as connected by connector 200 to connector 200 connector 200 connector 200 seizing its ferrule 408.

As coaxial cable continues to enter the connector, arms 311-314 make both mechanical and electrical contact with its inner conductor, with teeth designed to grip its insulating jacket. In contrast to known F-type connectors whose sleeves and insulators are separate components, the new axially compressible electrical hardline connector embeds its sleeves within its insulator for easier installation and reduced part count.

Installing a PPC hardline connector requires using appropriate tools, so as to ensure its secure attachment to the cable and not loosen over time. Furthermore, installers must be qualified in this type of work since faulty installations could result in bodily harm or equipment damage as well as faulty connections that compromise its performance and negatively affect cable performance.

The PPc hardline connector includes a terminal support 1 made of dielectric material such as plastic that serves to support pin terminal 7 from its length, as illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 7. For optimal results, General Electric offers polyetherimide as Ultem 1000 terminal support material for this application. In addition, front nut assembly 22 features two dust caps 6 and closing collar 9 located at opposite ends of entry body housing 14. These parts work together seamlessly.

Conduction pin 128, located within bore 82, is inserted through hole 144 into the insulator in order to engage conductor pin 172 on a hardline coaxial cable. An o-ring 154 sits within its seat 156 and compresses against its outer diameter when the chassis portion engages the adaptor portion, creating an environmental seal between chassis and adaptor components of the connector.

A typical o-ring has an outer diameter D9 and inner diameter D8, both larger than the locking member outer diameter D5. Its locking member outer diameter D5 must fit over the o-ring seat to engage shoulder 178 of hardline cable member. When chassis portion connects with adaptor portion, an o-ring will compress between its shoulder and face 158 to form an environmental seal.
