How to choose the proper F-connector
The information contained herein may be outdated.
F does not mean F? Our offer includes as many as 9 types of F-connectors. How to make the proper choice?
The main division of them is due to the way of applying - F-connectors that are screwed on the cable and those crimped on. The first kind can be mounted with bare hands or with handy, dedicated wrench HT-224.
The mounting tool HT-224 E8007 facilities work a lot
The latter kind requires using adequate crimping tools, e.g.:
To prepare the coaxial cable for the operation, it is needed in each situation insulation stripper:
Insulation stripper HT-332 E8003
In order to choose F-connector having proper dimensions we have to know outside diameter of the coaxial cable. The choice will be easier thanks to the table given below.
Quick F-connectors. F-connectors are cheap and reliable, but in some applications (e.g. testing and measurements) they are not handy due the need of screwing on. The same is true with linking cascades of multiswitches. The problem can be solved by using "quick" F-connectors - E8242.
