RG-6/U is a common type of coaxial cable (electrical cable with an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer typically of a flexible material with a high dielectric constant) used in a wide variety of residential and commercial applications. RG-6 (which originally stand for Radio Guide) is used to refer to coaxial cables with an 18 AWG center conductor and 75 ohm characteristic impedance. RG-6 has many specifications: F6TSSV, F6TSSVcu, F6TVS, F6TVScu, F660BV, F660BVcu, F660BVF,F660BVM, F690BV, F690BVcu, F690BVF, F690BVM maximum range.

RCA Compression Connector is designed for terminating long RG6 coax cable runs, 6 color-coded bands included for field-configurable cable ID during installation.

RG6 Coaxial Cable to RCA Compression Connector installation procedures: rg6 coaxial cable to rca connector installation

  1. Using a 2-bladed stripping tool, strip the RG6 coaxial cable exposing 0.25 inch of the center conductor and remove the 0.25 inch of the outer coaxial cable insulation.
  2. Fold the braid back over the outer coaxial cable insulation.
  3. Then carefully insert the coaxial cable into the RCA compression connector until firmly seated.
  4. Finally, using a proper tool, compress the connector.
