What are BNC Connectors?

Meet the Connector: BNC Connectors BNC connectors are miniature radio frequency (RF) connectors developed for low-frequency applications. This quick-connect/disconnect circular connector features a two-stud bayonet-style locking mechanism that users twist and snap into position. A tactile snap indicates a secure connection; a reverse motion disconnects the connector pair. The BNC connector famously bears the initialsRead More

What are Coaxial Connectors?

Meet the Connector: Coaxial  Connectors (Note: This article focuses on cable-to-cable and cable-to-panel applications.)  A coaxial connector has an inner conductor that is enveloped by a concentric conducting sleeve, with the conductor and shield separated by an insulating material;  hence the term “coax” or “coaxial” connector. (Not all RF [radio frequency] connectors are coax, butRead More
