Remember these important guidelines when soldering is required:

The wire and terminal must be clean and free from corrosion. Wire conductors which are oxidized or corroded (black or green in appearance) should never be used.

Select the proper solder. Low temperature: 40% Lead - 60% Tin; Rosin flux.

Solder melts at about 375F. Care should be taken not to overheat the wire or terminal, as damage can occur.

The solder joint should be bright and shiny. A dull appearance might indicate a cold joint which will fail prematurely.

Do not use too much solder. Capillary action will wick solder through the end of wire. After cooling, mechanical disturbances, such as vibration or flexing, can cause this hard spot to fracture and disrupt continuity.

Installation Instructions for Twist-On Connectors

To install ANCOR twist-on connectors, strip the cable to expose 9/16" of the center conductor. Strip the outer jacket to expose 1/4" of the braid. Make sure that the braided shield does not touch the inner conductor.

Insert the cable into the connector until the center conductor protrudes through the center of the connector.

Twist the small knurled end while gently pushing the connector onto the cable until resistance is felt. Crimp or solder the center conductor.

Cut off any excess. It is strongly recommended that a piece of ANCOR 3/4" heat shrink be installed on all exterior UHF connectors to waterproof and relieve strain.
