A compression connector is a type of electrical connector that is commonly used in coaxial cable applications. It is designed to create a secure and reliable connection between the cable and the connector, while also providing excellent electrical performance.
The "F" in F compression connector refers to the type of coaxial cable it is commonly used with, which is known as RG-6. This cable is commonly used for cable TV and satellite TV installations, as well as for internet connections.
The F compression connector is a popular choice because it is easy to install and provides excellent signal quality. It works by compressing the outer layer of the cable onto the connector, creating a tight and secure connection that is resistant to moisture and other environmental factors.
To install an F compression connector, the cable is stripped of its outer jacket and the connector is threaded onto the cable. A compression tool is then used to compress the connector onto the cable, creating a tight and secure connection.
