Leviton Offers Compression Connectors for High -end Audio/Video

These female-style field-configurable Compression RCA and F-Connectors work with RG6 Quad cable, and feature a radial crimp, widely recognized as the highest quality fitting-style for audio/video applications.

August 12, 2003 -Bothell, WA -Leviton has added two new connectors to its line of enhanced voice, data, audio and video connectors for home and office: Compression -style RCA and F -connectors for high -end audio/video systems.


These female -style field -configurable Compression RCA and F -Connectors work with RG6 Quad cable, and feature a radial crimp, widely recognized as the highest quality fitting -style for audio/video applications. This crimp compresses uniformly around the body of the connector, creating a stronger, more robust connection between it and the cable, which in turn provides superior electrical performance in comparison to traditional connections.

RCA Connectors feature a selection of five color -coded connector bands for application identification - -available in red, black, yellow, green and blue.

Leviton's versatile Master Compression Tool, also introduced this week, works with both RCA and F -Connectors. It will also terminate QuickPort -style F and RCA Compression Connectors -specifically designed to fit in Leviton QuickPort outlets -which will be introduced later this year.

A faulty or substandard connection point is the most likely candidate for poor signal quality. Low quality connectors will significantly affect even the best audio/video system, causing interference or poor signal quality. Crimps that are not strong enough or loosen over time can pull off and cause further deterioration in these signals.

Leviton Compression RCA and F -Connectors offer a high -integrity bond that firmly binds the cable to the connector and does not relax over time. The Leviton Master Compression Tool also offers a quicker, more consistent termination, with a high rate of repeatability to ensure that tired hands will not make a bad connection.

Use Leviton Compression Connectors for home theatre, conference rooms, media centers, security cameras, and high -end audio or gaming systems for the best possible connections with minimum egress or ingress. Designed to segue with any audio/video system design, Leviton's Compression Connectors can be used with Leviton's complete line of workstation accessories, including F -type and RCA adapters, wallplates, housings, Structured Media(tm) panels and RF modules.

Leviton's Compression Connectors are covered by a two -year limited product warranty, and a standard twenty year performance guarantee.
