Co-Star the Harrogate based global supplier to the ICT industry have enhanced their range of FAKRA connectors with the addition of Right Angle versions which are designed to simplify the crimping process for end user and put less strain on the cable when installed.
The FAKRA connectors are colour coded to differentiate the application:
To connect the FAKRA connectors you simply need to strip the coaxial cable and locate the inner conductor (centre core) in the gold coloured channel in the connector and than secure it using the threaded cap and crimp the barrel using a crimp tool to complete the process.
FAKRA connectors are widely used to connect antennas to communication devices on the latest vehicles.
Tim Cosgrove of Co-Star commented:
The technology in the latest connected car’s is now more sophisticated than a modern office so the connectors and cabling required to connect the latest telematics and Wi-Fi equipment need to be capable of transmitting very high levels of data. Co-Star work with vehicle manufactures and Telematics companies so are always early adopters of the latest connectors and cabling on the market. We have just launched a range of HSD connectors which are used on the latest German vehicles and have extended our range of FAKRA connectors and adaptors.
