Dual Crimp - RG142-400
Good quality coax connector and easy to install. The small center pin can be crimped or soldered but the big sleeve must be crimped. It would be nice if the coax cut dimension were printed on the package. The can be found on the web.
The center pin on this is much harder to crimp than the BNC. Replacement pin is not available, so a failure means you just ruined an expensive connector.
I am sure a good connector, but, there is a need for some instructions for assembly and notes providing information on appropriate crimping tools. I am finding that every manufacturer seems to use different crimping tools especially for the center pin. The big avionics shops probably have the correct information and tools, but they probably are not buying from Spruce. More information including name of Mfr. would be helpful.
No, the manufacturer does not allow us to purchase the pins separately.
Manufacturer's part # is 225555-6.
Crimpers like 12-02378 or 12-01379 with its respective DIE.
The diameter is .64". So you will need at least that much of an opening to fit this through.
