FISCHER TRIAX CONNECTORS - 1051 Series
Industry standard Fischer 1051 series triax connectors, sealed to IP68, for studio,outside broadcast and microwave links. See also 1051 TRIAX HD pro+ connectors and DRAKA TRIAX 11 HD PRO cable for extended performance up to 1700m.
The 1051 triax connector series was completely re-engineered in 2007 resulting in fewer internal parts aiding quick and reliable termination, a more rugged exterior, IP68 protection when mated or fitted with dust caps and improved RF / HD / 3G HD performance.
The internal cable clamp components for a particular cable size are common to both SE and KE free cable-end connector styles. Once assembled the mating interfaces may be quickly and easily replaced if damaged, or swapped if cables are accidently deployed the wrong way around, without disturbing the cable termination. (Note that the dust caps are attached to the strain relief on free cable types so will need to be removed and swapped or replaced if a connector gender change is permanent.) Special tooling may be required to terminate the cable or fit the connector interfaces, refer to assembly instructions for the individual connectors for clarification, (crimp tools are available to special order.)
A high performance version of the 1051 series has been developed in cooperation with Draka who have produced a matched Triax 11 HD pro cable. The Triax HD pro+ system can extend triax performance to over 1500m; see FISCHER TRIAX CONNECTORS - 1051 HD pro+ Series - Extended distance.
Both plug (SE) and socket (KE) come complete with a dust cap on a lanyard cord to protect against ingress of dust and dirt. The rugged outer design of free cable-end types includes an integrated protective ribbed TPE sleeve and a strain relief boot. An additional universal outer sleeve that fits over all cable plug or socket covers all exposed metal parts and is a recommended option.
Plugs and sockets to fit cable up to 15.2mm are available to special order.
Panel Mount Types - Cable Clamp Termination
Rigid latching caps with a lanyard cord for attachment to termination panels are a recommended accessory to seal panel connectors when not in use. (Canford tailgate panels feature a threaded fixing hole and screw adjacent to each connector position to secure the cap lanyard cord.)
A hook ('C') spanner (for DKE and DSR) and nut driver (for DKBE) are required to fit the special panel mounting nuts. A spanner for the inner threaded ring (for DKE and DSR ) are suggested to assist in fitting the cable connectors.
Panel Mount Types - Open Rear Termination
Open-backed, solder-termination panel-mount styles are suitable for use only in dry and clean environments such as closed cases or camera / CCU housings. The outer screen is terminated onto a tab washer so does not fully surround and protect the inner cores from electrical interference. These types are not suitable for pulling through ducting after termination since the outer screen and jacket are not secured to the connector body. They are not recommended for use in conjunction with the Triax HD pro+ cable system.
Couplers and Panel Feedthroughs
Couplers may be used to join cables or interface with panel connectors where plug-to-plug (SE-SE) or socket-to-socket (KE-KE) connections are required. Square flange mount couplers allow connection between cable plug-to-plug (SE-SE) or cable plug-to-socket (SE-to-KE) through a panel. 1051 series couplers and feedthroughs are completely compatible with Triax HD pro+ connectors.
Fischer specify connector mating interfaces and cable clamp kits (which includes strain relief and dust cap for SE and KE types) separately however Canford has combined all required components for each connector under a single stock code to simplify ordering.
Dust caps for panel types and the additional protective sleeve for cable types should be ordered separately.
Spare cable clamp sets, crimp sleeves and crimp/solder pins are available to special order, please contact Technical Support.
