Zierick Adds to it’s Line of Surface Mount Insulation Piercing Crimp Terminals

Zierick Manufacturing Corporation is pleased to announce an extension of its line of Surface Mount Insulation Piercing Crimp Terminals. This patent pending product allows for termination of RG174/U or RG316/U coaxial cable. The connectors use a series of blades oriented to pierce the center conductor and outside jacket dielectric materials to create an electrical connection to both the signal wire and braid (ground) in a single operation – eliminating any additional soldering operations. Zierick offers this product in standard EIA Tape and Reel packaging (Part Number IPC-2-1-T). Insertion requires the outer jacket and braid to be stripped approximately 0.250″/6.35mm. The cable is then inserted into the connector and the housing can be pressed down via a hand tool or small press. The terminal is perfect for applications with a usable range of up to 3.25 GHz while providing a VSWR of less than 1.5:1 (at 2 GHz) and 1.6:1 (at 3 GHz).
