New IDEAL OmniCONN™ F Coaxial Cable Connectors Leverage Unique Transparent Bushing to Reduce Common Connection Errors

SYCAMORE, IL, February 7, 2008 – Adding to its standing as an innovator in data communications solutions, IDEAL launched today the industry's first F-series compression connector with a transparent bushing.

Suitable for RG6 and RG6 Quad coaxial cables, the new IDEAL OmniCONN™ F Connector simplifies installation of video, data and telephony systems by integrating a clear hardened polycarbonate bushing into its single-piece design. This patented feature gives the installer full visual of the cable entering into the connector's inner mandrel, helping to reduce failures commonly encountered while installing compression connectors, such as torn cable shielding, bunched braids, or fraying of the dielectric.

Further strengthening the connectors' performance are: a non-corrosive nickel plated brass body, a free spinning hex nut for installation on all 7/16-inch ports, 75 ohm nominal impedance, bandwidth up to 3 GHz, and a Delrin/Nylon adapter sleeve and o-ring for a true watertight seal.

IDEAL OmniCONN F connectors have been extensively tested on several manufacturers' cables. The connectors meet SCTE Pull Test requirements (40 lb.), as well as pass SCTE Moisture Migration and UV tests, making them useable for indoor/outdoor applications.
