Firstly, choose the appropriate coaxial cable
First of all, it is necessary to select the coaxial cable. In this step, there are many parameters that need to be determined, involving both electrical and mechanical properties, such as impedance, shielding, attenuation, as well as diameter, structure of the center conductor (single-strand or multi-strand), sheath material, etc.
Secondly, choose the appropriate coaxial connector
Then, it is necessary to select the coaxial connector. There are many types of coaxial connectors, such as the common BNC, TNC, SMA, F type or RCA are only a small part of them (refer to here). Each model has its own application path and is divided into male and female specifications.
Thirdly, choose the appropriate wiring method
After determining the type of cable and connector, you need to select the corresponding wiring method. There are three commonly used coaxial wiring methods: crimping, clamping, and solderless.
Fourthly, choose the right tool
If the wiring method you choose is "crimping", you need to find the corresponding tool. The following three installation methods are related to the introduction of specific tools.
→ The following are three common coaxial cable installation methods
This is the most commonly used wiring method. The shield of the cable is crimped to the connector using a crimp ring; the center pin (hole) of the connector is crimped or welded to the center conductor of the cable.
