N-Type Crimping instructions

Does anyone have bonehead-proof instructions for crimping on a N-type coax connector?

I pulled the end off of the XM antenna cable....

thanks,

Curtis

Do you have a Coax Crimper c/w Type N Dies?

Assembly Instructions for 3-piece BNC, TNC, N-type, and C-type Coaxial Connectors:
1. Refer to the connector manufacturer’s specification and data sheets for the required strip dimensions and crimp size required to select the proper tools for use. The connector manufacturer specifies the sizes, not the cable or connector type.
2. Set-up the coaxial stripping tool to perform the proper strip of the outer jacket, shield, and inner dielectric as required by the connector manufacturer.
3. Strip the coaxial cable.
4. Slide the ferrule sleeve of the coaxial connector over the cable.
5. Ensure the center conductor length is accurate per the manufacturer’s specification.
6. Attach the pin to the center conductor.
7. Crimp the pin using the proper crimp size in the crimp tool as specified by the connector manufacturer.
8. Gently spin the center conductor pin in a circular motion to flair the braided shield outward away from the dielectric.
9. Slide the connector shell over the pin and dielectric. The end of the connector should slide under the braided shield. The connector should ‘snap” into place when the pin is seated properly into the connector.
10. Slide the ferrule sleeve over the braided shield and connector end.
11. Crimp the ferrule sleeve using the proper crimp size in the crimp tool as specified by the connector manufacturer.

Assembly Instructions for 2-piece BNC, TNC, N-type, C-type, and CATV “F” Coaxial Connectors:
1. Refer to the connector manufacturer’s specification and data sheets for the required strip dimensions and crimp size required to select the proper tools for use. The connector manufacturer specifies the sizes, not the cable or connector type.
2. Set-up the coaxial stripping tool to perform the proper strip of the outer jacket, shield, and inner dielectric as required by the connector manufacturer.
3. Strip the coaxial cable.
4. Slide the ferrule sleeve of the coaxial connector over the cable.
5. Gently spin the center conductor and dielectric in a circular motion to flair the braided shield outward away from the dielectric.
6. Slide the connector shell over the center conductor and dielectric. The end of the connector
should slide under the braided shield. The connector should ‘snap” into place when the center conductor is seated properly into the connector.
7. Slide the ferrule sleeve over the braided shield and connector end.
8. Crimp the ferrule sleeve using the proper crimp size in the crimp tool as specified by the connector manufacturer.

Thanks, Gord. I figured you'd have this at your fingertips!

Don't think so...crimper is on the boat and the only die I have is for that huge Coax that I used...I think it is a PL-259. I think I can just buy another die for that tool, tho.

Re: N-Type Crimping instructions

Hi Curtis,

I dont have the instruction for the N Type, but for TNC you can get a clamp and solder type connection which does not require a crimping tool.
Have attached instructions
