Should I use F Terminators?

Q. - I've heard I should use "terminators" on my video connections.  What are they and why should I use them?

A. - 75-Ohm f terminators are one of the most overlooked, yet essential items.

  • When you set-up your video distribution system, you'll often have locations that have video distributed to them but nothing connected to the system. This is usually the case when you've run the cable thinking that you might use the connection in the future.

  • Open cable ends (or connectors) can cause deterioration and degradation of the video signal. In the simplest terms, your system will tend to have poorer signals if these ends are left open.  A 75-Ohm terminator simply screws onto a standard F-connector, and presents a "load" to the system, as if a component were connected there.

"F" series terminators utilize passive electronic circuitry designed to block 60 cycle interference (generated by electric lines) and terminate RF signals on unused equipment ports. They are necessary to prevent impedance mismatches and minimize RF reflections and echoes. Unused active ports should always be terminated to:

1.  prevent signal leakage

2.  prevent extraneous signals from entering the system, and

3.  prevent water and moisture damage if the unit is located outside.

 

"F" Bottom Line: All open or unused ports on signal splitters, LNBF's, MultiSwitches, etc. should be terminated.  By doing so, you are decreasing signal leakage, increasing signal strength and protecting the port from water-damage and corrosion.


satellite installation tripod
  SELF-SUPPORTING 3-FOOT TRIPOD
3-foot tripod with mounting mast.  Mounting mast is 18 gauge and 1.66" in diameter.  Accepts all DirecTV & DISH Network mini satellite dishes except Sony.  ALLOWS CHEST-HIGH AIMING OF YOUR SATELLITE DISH!


  3-PIECE CAMPER SPECIAL
Same 3-foot tripod with mounting mast as above along with 60 feet of RG6 coaxial cable and a satellite finder/meter.  Coaxial cable is equipped with F56 connectors on both ends.  Tripod collapses for easy storage.


  NON-PENETRATING ROOF MOUNT
Designed specifically for flat roofs.  Strongest Non-Penetrating Roof Mount Available.


  STANDARD F81 BARREL CONNECTORS
Used to connect (splice) coaxial cable RG6 and RG59. Non-corrosive. Great for satellite installation!


  HIGH-FREQUENCY F81 BARREL CONNECTORS
Used for splicing coaxial cable drops and for replacing standard-frequency connectors in wallplates.  Unsurpassed Digital broadband performance to 3GHz.  Nickel plated high grade brass with precision machined 3/8" threads.  Necessary for all broadband applications.  Suggested use with all satellite applications where 22 KHz tone switching is involved.


  WHITE 3-OUTLET RCA WALL PLATE: STEREO AUDIO and VIDEO
Now, there's a solution for those folks who have a five-thousand dollar home entertainment system and speaker wires poking through a hole in the sheetrock.  Worse yet, strung across the carpet, down along the wall, and up over the door facing.  These 3-outlet WHITE RCA wall plates put an end to your speaker woes and your friends referring to you as a "redneck".  Twenty-four carat gold electroplated contacts.  SHARP appearance.  SUPER conductivity.


Flat Flexible Cable for Doors and Windows
  FLEXIBLE FLAT COAXIAL CABLE
When the landlord won't allow you to drill a hole in his wall or floor to install a satellite system OR when drilling is just not an option -- use these flexible flat coaxial cable patch cords to run under the window or door.
  Run them under windows or doors! Eliminates drilling holes!  Flat - Flexible - Moldable. Excellent for use in motor homes, recreational vehicles and rental property.


  In-Line Satellite Signal Amplifier (Booster) - Amp
If you have coaxial cable drops longer than 100 feet between the satellite dish outside and the satellite receiver inside, you may find it necessary to add a signal amplifier to compensate for signal losses.  Wide bandwidth for all terrestrial satellite applications.  20 dB 40-2250 MHz Inline Amplifier.  Precision Machined Threads on F-Connectors. Nickel-Plated Zinc-Alloy Die-Cast Housing.  Solder Backed Cover Plate.  Gain = 20db.
