|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
2. Fold the braid back over the outer jacket as shown to
|3. Insert the tool fitting required for the
connector (see below).|
|4. Carefully 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
|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.
Holder for insert, turning this piece makes it move up or down for compression
- 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.
|Use pictures below to determine if tool has sufficiently
compressed the connector.|
