Coaxial Connector Performance (1983)

By John Mattis, Raychem Corporation

This paper presents a series of test methods that were used to evaluate the mechanical performance of .50 inch diameter feed through coaxial connectors. The testing revealed that correctly installed connectors are as strong as the cable outer sheath, but that connectors are craft sensitive to install. Incorrect installation can lead to mechanical and hence, electrical failure.
