|1. Using a 2-Bladed stripping tool (EXC7010), strip coax as shown to right, exposing
3/8" of the center conductor and remove 1/4" of the outer coax insulation. Then
cut the center back to having 1/4" exposed, this insures that the center is cut
clean and points out straight.|
2. Fold the braid back over the outer
jacket as shown to right.
|3. Insert the tool fitting required for the connector (see
insert the coax into the connector as shown until firmly seated. In some cases,
it may be easier to insert the connector into the tool first and then slide the
wire through the end of the tool to the connector. Do not force into connector.
The dielectric can get caught on the inner barrier, kind of rotate or wiggle to
ensure the dielectric passes through the inner barrier. Continue pushing in to
allow the wire to seat firmly.|
|5. Use the
tool (EXC7017) to compress the back of the
connector. It may be necessary to adjust the tool for a proper compression. The
numbered parts are as follows:|
- 1. Connector insert (shown above), turn
to insert or remove the connector insert.
- 2. Holder for insert, turning this
piece makes it move up or down for compression height
- 3. Used to lock the
adjustment, if #2 doesn't turn freely, this one is probably stopping it, turn
this in order to allow #2 to adjust.
