Compression Connectors and Tools

For Maximum Signal Integrity and Performance, Use Belden Compression Connectors, Cable and Tools  

NP313_BkgndBuilt to Belden's exacting standards, Belden Connectors and Tools, combined with Belden Coaxial Cables, offer a complete top-quality, end-to-end field installation solution that will provide maximum signal reliability and performance.  Belden also uses a compression technique that provides a smooth and consistent seal to reduce signal ingress or egress, prevent moisture penetration and improve the overall quality of the installation.  Other connector systems use a crimping technique which damages the jacket, dielectric and wire, resulting in multiple signal leakage points and moisture entry.


Compression Connectors


Belden BNC, RCA and F Compression Connectors exceed SCTE Standards for signal ingress, egress and water migration, while providing exceptional aesthetic and strength characteristics.  They ensure optimal connector performance by offering:

  • Visual confirmation of cable entry
  • Better performance with improved signal impedance
  • A simple product and installation process removes installation inconsistencies

Viewed Cable Entry/Termination


Belden offers the ability to see the cable enter the connector, and for BNC and RCA connectors, a unique pop-up pin confirms a proper termination and contact point.  Being able to visually confirm the cable termination means better and faster installation.
