Terminating an "F" Type Crimp Connector

Step 1 Remove jacket material to 3/8".

Step 2 Fold braid back over jacket.

Step 3 Remove foil and cut dielectric to length of 1/4". Be careful not nick copper jacket of center conductor. Remove dielectric fuzz.

Step 4 If using separate crimp ring, slide over folded back braid.

Step 5 If foil is burred, twist so that corner at point A is smooth and provides a lead for the connector mandrel.

Step 6 Install connector mandrel over foil and underneath the braid; trim braid if desired. Point A should be approximately even with inner surface of connector.

Step 7 Slide crimp ring into place over braid and adjacent to connector body. Crimp with proper tool.
