Providing Exceptional Performance and Reliability, the Brilliance BNC Family Includes Three-Piece Crimp Connectors and One-Piece Compression Connectors With Optional Locking Feature
HAWTHORNE, N.Y. -- June 8, 2011 -- BTX Technologies, a global value-added distributor and manufacturer of interface and integration products, today announced that the company has added Belden(R) Brilliance(R) high-definition BNC broadcast connectors to its product line-up. Designed for use with Belden Brilliance precision video coaxial cables, the BNC connectors offer the exceptional performance and rock-solid reliability required by professional integrators. BTX customers are able to choose from three connector platforms to meet their application needs: three-piece crimp connectors, one-piece compression connectors, and one-piece locking compression connectors.
All Belden Brilliance BNC connectors provide excellent headroom and true 75-ohm performance. The devices offer the utmost in durability with brass construction and provide better than -20 dB return loss performance through 4.5 GHz, exceeding the SMPTE specification requirements. Belden's three-piece BNC crimp connector features a traditional pin, collar, and connector design, and is designed specifically for Belden cable tolerances for better performance and durability. Belden also offers a limited lifetime connector warranty when the three-piece BNC crimp connector is partnered with Belden Brilliance cable.
The design of Belden's one-piece BNC compression connector eliminates the pin, collar, and connector as separate components, thereby providing faster, easier installation. In addition, the device provides excellent holding strength exceeding 100 pounds thanks to internal 360-degree compression rings, and offers weather resistance for increased reliability. A non-blind entry ensures that the center conductor is properly inserted into the center pin. Improved insulation materials (PTFE) help to deliver optimum return-loss performance.
The locking one-piece BNC compression connector features an optional patented screw-on locking collar that securely aligns the connector and locks the bayonet nut in place, delivering an unparalleled level of electrical performance. By reducing potential movement between the connector and cable, the Belden locking connector delivers the line's best return-loss performance, exceeding -40 dB at 4 GHz.
"We are excited to add the Brilliance high-definition BNC connector family to the growing list of Belden connectors offered by BTX. And with three high-quality options to choose from, our customers have complete access to the right technology for their application," said Mark Chernoff, director of marketing for BTX. "Belden's BNC connectors provide easy and fast installation, optional one-piece designs, and a locking feature for increased reliability. Because failed connections are minimized, integrators spend less time in the field, and installation costs decrease dramatically."
BTX offers live demonstrations and dealer training sessions around the country.
