PCT is widely known for its patented compression connector technology, but is always looking for new ways to improve the quality of the drop. That attentiveness brings another breakthrough feature to their compression connector, the PCT-TRSXL-6LMG, making it even better than ever!
One of the most common mistakes made by self-installers, and even by many trained technicians, during an installation is improper connector tightening. This oversight leads to interruptions and degraded performance in both video and data services resulting in countless truck rolls.
PCT’s continuous ground feature - standard on our PCT-TRSXL-6LMG torque retaining connector - maintains greater immunity to ingress and egress due to loose connections, both inside and outside of the home. Laboratory testing has proven that, even in a loosened state, the PCT-TRSXL-6LMG’s unique features keep the connection tight while providing continuous grounding and enhanced shielding.
PCT-TRSXL-6LMG connector is designed with a 21 mm stroke length to be compatible with the most commonly used compression tools, including horseshoe designs.
PCT stands behind the philosophy that a tight connection is always the best connection but understands that an installation completed by a customer or installer may run the chance of being less than perfect. That’s why PCT develops products that help avoid service related issues, increase customer satisfaction and lower operational expenses for operators.
