TROMPETER BNC CONNECTORS - Male cable types - HDTV
The Trompeter UPL2000 series are high-performance, true 75 ohm types that have been developed specifically for HDTV applications. They have extremely low return-loss, and are rated to 500 mating cycles.
The impedance-matched, gold-plated crimp centre-pin ‘clicks’ home into a PTFE insulator in a black nickel-plated body with nickel-plated crimp outer sleeve (‘ferrule’). Return loss is typically 42dB at 1GHz, 31dB at 2GHz and 29dB at 3GHz. Insertion loss maximum: 0.2dB up to 3GHz.
Trompeter recommend use of their own 12-point radial crimp tool (often known as a ‘Daniels’ tool) for precision crimping of the centre-contact and optimum connector performance. It is also possible to use standard hex crimp tools although these are not preferred. For the outer sleeve (‘ferrule’), standard hex crimp-tools from Paladin and Erma are used.
Connectors are sold singly and in bulk packs:
Single connectors are supplied individually bagged. Bulk packs of 50 connectors are supplied in plastic compartment trays.
Optional accessories: Coloured strain reliefs are recommended for crimp types of certain sizes, see BNC strain relief bushes. Canford does not offer strain relief bushes for Group Z cables due to the large diameter and rigidity of these cable types.
Crimp tools and dies are also offered: see Coaxial connector crimp tools.
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'.
