Hardline RF Cable is a critical element in radio site performance. Cable should should be 50 ohms +- 1 ohm (40 dB return loss) along it's full length. Hardline cable is easily dented, crushed or punctured. Test equipment with distance-to-fault measurement capability can verify cable performance. These measurements can be made prior to installation if a connector is installed on one end of the cable and a termination on the other end. Without the termination, artifacts of the full reflection can show false failures of the cable. RF Test Solutions press-on-terminations support quick and accurate measurement of hard line cable. Shipment damage can be detected If a termination is installed prior to shipment and measurements made upon arrival. Installation damage can be detected by making measurements as the cable hauled up the tower and installed.
Patented Terminator Caps are an inexpensive and easy to use tool to prevent costly rework and delay to radio site projects.
Terminator Caps simply slip over the end of a cable with a firm press fit.
