X-Crimp Cable Attachment (for Flexible Cable)

X-Crimp cable attachment combines ease of assembly with a captivated contact and a silicone-rubber boot* for weatherproofing. The captive contact is held rigidly in place to prevent movement from cable flexure or temperature changes after assembly.

The cable is trimmed, and the tail of the backnut assembly is pushed under the braid. The contact is soldered to the cable conductor, the braid crimped within the crimp sleeve, and the backnut assembly screwed into the body. The boot slides forward and snaps into place. The boots can be supplied in a variety of colors for identification.

Some connectors with X-Crimp cable attachment are qualified to MIL-PRF-39012, Category B (non-field replaceable), and Category C (MIL-defined crimp tools and cable stripping dimensions).

All X-Crimp connectors use readily-available commercial crimp tools and dies for assembly.

*SMA and smaller size connectors use heat-shrink tubing instead of silicone-rubber boots.
