PCT TRS-6 RG-6 Universal Shield "F" Radial Compression Connector
Appears on the DISH Network Approved List!
This Connector fits RG6 Cable with 60% thru Tri and Quad-Shield Braid Coverage. Its unique compression technology offers two robust seals to prevent moisture penetration, and the weather-seal nut eliminates the need for "F" port seal rings, making installations simple, reliable and cost effective. When used in conjunction with a standard seal ring, the weather-seal nut adds a robust second layer of protection against moisture migration. PCT's advanced post design greatly reduces connector insertion force, making installation on all cable types a breeze, and the hex nut design ensures an easy-to-turn hex nut in all weather conditions. Several exterior plating materials are available to meet the needs of specific markets and/or protect against corrosion in even the harshest environments.
Uses Compression Tool PCT-DRS-CT or PCT-AIO-CT Tools ONLY! As the Compression takes place in the Metal Rings and not through the use of Plastic!
Replaces PCT-DRS-6 and PCT-DRS-6Q
PCT certainly makes a Robust Connector, and we also encourage you to peruse the selection of Universal Connectors found in the same Category!
After WWII, 75 Ohm cable has been used as the Transmission Line of Choice for TV, Cable TV and Broadband Signals, Distribution Systems large and small, simply because of its plentiful abundance. As the Industry progressed, It seems there were 10 times as many Connectors as there was Coaxial Cable types, each requiring a Proprietary style of Tool to Fashion the connection with. Most Folks We know stick to using the Connector style that they were introduced to, and the Manufacturer, Make and Model that they have invested in via the Compression or Crimp Tool they own. Whereas before, when each manufactured cable type introduced was paired up with a specific Model Connector from one or several different Manufacturers, many have now settled on providing Connectors whose Braid, Shield and Jacket coverage range is broader in scope, encompassing the designed ability to fit many variations of a particular sized cable. Becoming Universal certainly has its advantages... And RG6 is now the minimum size recommended for any HDTV Satellite, Off-Air DTV or Satellite TV Install. So please consider a transitional investment towards the Universal RG6 Compression Connectors and Universal Compression Tools we offer, as the sourcing of those out-dated Connectors becomes more difficult!
