PPC coaxial connectors

With the emergence of new services, quality requirements for networks are also constantly increasing. Surveys at major cable TV providers show that nearly 80% of subscriber errors are caused by network connections.

According to surveys, in the case of the outdoor coaxial connectors, the most common cause of failure is the entry of water into the connector and the cable and corrosion due to water. Corrosion causes electrical and mechanical parameters of connectors and cables to deteriorate continuously. The second most common source of error is inadequate mounting and fixing of connectors.

Therefore, it is particularly important to choose high quality, perfect waterproof connectors. You should also pay careful attention to proper, professional installation. By adhering to these principles, a large proportion of subscriber errors can be eliminated.

Line connectors

Features of PPC line connectors, quality, excellent electrical and mechanical parameters, reliability, durability and ease of installation. The design has taken into account the challenges of today's digital cable television networks, including high-speed data and telephone services and 1GHz frequency transmission.

The PPC line connectors have several unique features:

On the coaxial cable side, a so-called Active O-ring (the inner diameter of the connector is permanently reduced during the final tightening) ensures easy installation and perfect water tightness.
Metal-to-metal contact: When tightening multi-part connectors, separate parts must be rotate up to the stop position. This will not allow the connector to be pulled over.
Anti-rotation mechanism: During the tightening of the connectors, in the final phase, special, fixed, hexagonal elements do not allow the coaxial line cable to fold.

PPC manufactures various types of line connectors for different types of cable available on the market, as well as various fittings. The complete product range is included in the complete catalog at Connectors. Here are some more frequently searched products.

Drop connectors

According to surveys at large cable TV service providers, the majority of subscriber error reports are caused by F connectors in the network.

n the case of outdoor coaxial connectors, the most common cause of failure is the entry of water into the connector and the cable and corrosion due to water. Corrosion causes electrical and mechanical parameters of connectors and cables to deteriorate continuously. Therefore, it is particularly important to choose high quality, perfect waterproof connectors.

PPC therefore produces compression connectors with excellent mechanical properties and perfect water tightness.

PPC drop products also include F connectors, grounding blocks, and various adapters

Compression connectors

Features of PPC Compression Connectors:

  • The compression process clamps the cable at 360 ° and provides perfect mechanical (up to 50kg pulling force) fastening and full water protection.

  • Under the head of the connector, an EPDM O-ring provides protection against water

  • PPC left the inner rubber ring inside the connector. This was necessary because, on the one hand, the rubber ring at some port types prevented the perfect metallic connection and on the other hand the water entering the thread causes corrosion as well. Therefore, PPC recommends using an external weather seal for outdoor installations.

General Technical Specification:

  • Bandwidth: 0 MHz - 3 GHz

  • Impedance: 75 Ohm (nominal)

  • Return loss: Minimal -30 dB - up to 3 GHz

  • Insertion loss: . 0.1 dB up to 3 GHz

  • Operational voltage: 90V (continuous, 60Hz AC)

  • Operational temperature range: -40° C ... +60° C
