HUBER+SUHNER has introduced a ground-breaking connector system for ½” corrugated cables used in Distributed Antenna Systems.

This new field mountable connector offers one-piece design and an extremely fast, easy and reliable assembly process with the help of a unique, patented all-in-one cable preparing tool.

HUBER+SUHNER Quick-Fit connectors are renowned worldwide for quality and are available for a variety of corrugated cables with N, 4.1/9.5, 4.3-10 as well as 7/16 interfaces.  With no loose parts and a minimum of assembly tools, these field mountable connectors offer a greatly simplified and economic approach to cable preparation and assembly. The Quick-Fit product line meets the requirements of multi-carrier, high channel-count transceivers such as base stations in today’s indoor and outdoor mobile communication infrastructures.

New Quick-Fit plus connector system and clean cable preparing process

Due to its one-piece compact design, the new quick-fit connectors eliminate loose parts such as O Rings and washers. This allows an extremely easy and fast assembly process and removes the need for additional steps such as application of grease on sealings. The innovative cable entry design allows the connectors to be mounted using a standard wrench, eliminating the need for expensive tools or calibrated torque wrenches.

To achieve best performance of a field mountable connector, the cable-preparing process of a corrugated plenum cable is as important as the use of a reliable connector system. Minor mistakes in the cable-preparing process can cause significant performance issues such as bad PIM or water ingress into the system. To combat this, HUBER+SUHNER has developed a unique cable preparing tool which is an all-in-one tool that requires minimal connector installation time and few assembly steps. This easy-to-handle, easy-to-carry tool can be used in both manual and automatic operation.

The unique all-in-one assembly tools allow the installer to prepare the cable through a fully controlled process, eliminating operator errors and resulting in perfect cable preparation with guarantees of no swarfs or burrs. This perfectly designed cable preparation process, along with the one-piece connector design, removes the risk of passive intermodulation due to connectors in the overall system or network.

SUCOFEED ½ inch plenum white cable

SUCOFEED ½” PW is a plenum-rated wideband coaxial cable designed to deliver outstanding electrical performance up to 6 GHz and supports wireless in-building plenum applications. This plenum cable has a star-shaped profile of extruded low loss dielectric and a solid copper outer conductor which provides excellent RF shielding.
