ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
UHF CRIMP STYLE


Step 1
Cut end of cable even with RFC coax cutters.
Strip cable to dimensions shown in table.
Make sure all cuts are square and sharp.
Do not nick braid, dialectric or center conductor.

Step 2
Slide crimp ferrule over cable jacket. If using heat shrink on assembly add now.
Flair back braid slightly.
Insert cable into body of connector. Inner ferrule will slide under the braid (Do not fan out the braid!!).
Braid must butt against back of body.
Slide ferrule over braid until it butts against body.
If you see any braid trim with RFC Iris Scissors.

Step 3
Crimp-Crimp or Crimp-Solder.
See table above for correct style of connector.
Crimp or Solder center conductor first. Give a pull test (you can always solder a crimp center contact).
Check for shorts with a VOM.
Crimp outer ferrule to braid.
Again check for shorts and if using heat shrink tubing now is the time to shrink it down on the cable and connector.
