AMPHENOL BNC CONNECTORS - Male, cable - Crimp - 3G HD-SDI
These high-performance, 75 ohm types have been developed specifically for HDTV applications. They have extremely low return-loss, and are rated to 1000 mating cycles.
The impedance-matched, gold-plated, crimp centre-pin ‘clicks’ home into a PTFE insulator in a nickel-plated body with crimp outer sleeve (‘ferrule’). Return loss is typically 35dB at 1GHz, 28dB at 2GHz and 20dB at 3GHz.
Canford offers several ranges of BNC connectors of a less stringent specification, including 50 ohm types suitable for RF purposes; they are described separately and designated ‘BNC’, rather than ‘BNC HD’, elsewhere in this section.
Connectors are sold singly and in bulk packs:
Single connectors are supplied individually bagged.
Bulk packs of 100 connectors are supplied in plastic compartment trays.
Optional accessories: Coloured strain reliefs are recommended for crimp types, see BNC strain relief bushes. Crimp tools and dies are also offered: please refer to the linked 'Crimp Die Selection Chart' product resource.
Crimp dies must be the correct type for the connector and cable size. Due to the precise dimensions of the centre pins required to achieve superior performance at HD bit-rates, crimp-dies used for SD BNCs are NOT suitable for Amphenol BNC HD connectors. Please refer to the linked 'Crimp Die Selection Chart' product resource.
For an explanation of the terminology used in this entry and the advantages of crimping and solder termination, as well as advice on termination procedure and choice of connectors and tooling to suit specific cables, please see the linked Product Resources , 'Crimp Die Selection Chart', 'Coaxial Connector Selection Guide' and 'BNC Connectors - Terminology And Termination'.
