Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) introduces its new True Lock Connectors for the distribution segments of cable television (CATV) applications. Designed to meet the discerning requirements of hardline coaxial customers, True Lock Connectors combine the functionality of legacy Corning Cabelcon connectors with ease-of-use enhancements that include:
- A design requiring less torque to tighten to a full mechanical stop, which is especially useful in tight or difficult installation sites.
- A new locking mechanism that prevents the cable from turning when tightening the backnut.
- A unique two-piece design that helps ensure correct pressure when tightening the connector.
- No additional training required for installers using Corning Cabelcon tools.
- The same high-quality shielding and transfer impedance performance as Cabelcon connectors.
True Lock Connectors support a wide range of cable types. The connectors will provide Class A++ compliance when used with a Class A++-compliant cable. Stripping guides for the inner and outer conductors help with cable preparation, and a multislot ferrule provides a uniformed grip on the outer conductors for improved electrical performance.
To see a live demonstration of the True Lock Connector, visit Corning’s exhibit (booth # 10.2/K31) at ANGA COM 2013 Exhibition & Congress, June 4-6, in Cologne, Germany.
