ITC plug
 
 
   

Q: When should I use ITC’s?
A: Use ITC’s when you want to make a superior connection to coaxial cable and you want to do it faster without searching for one more tool. Managing a team of installation techs? Your job just became a little bit easier and your team more productive.

Q: Does this really make a good connection with the wire? Is it reliable?

RG6/RG59 and 24 AWG AudioQuest Solution:

A: Yes. The unique design of ITC (with its Torsional Strain Relief system of rotating teeth) provides a superior mechanical termination to the cable jacket that is VERY difficult to break.  In addition, the Lotus-Grip System™ (spring-tensioned mechanism) in the center pin of the ITC holds firm to the center conductor for a very secure electrical connection. ITC provides the ideal mechanical AND electrical connection.

Mini Coax Solution:
A: Yes. Thanks to our Grip-Lock System™ (which offers a vice-like grip on the center conductor when twisting the connector together) you are assured a perfect electrical connection.  Please see our video for a detailed look.

Q: What’s Torsional Strain Relief System and why should I care?
A: All installers will relate to this one. How many times has your run of RG-6 (coming up from the back of the rack) nearly lifted the component off the shelf due to the twisted torsion of the cable? Imagine the strain on the fragile rear jack of the component! The Torsional Strain Relief System utilizes a free-revolving set of teeth in the ITC plug. This allows rotation of the cable without removing the connector or bending the wire, which can change the impendence and degrade the performance of the cable. ITC makes wire management a breeze.

Q: What kind of wire will work with ITC?

RG6/RG59 and 24 AWG AudioQuest Soluton:

A: Darn near all of them. We have tested the top 10 brands and despite highly variable ODs (Overall Diameter), ITC makes a firm mechanical grip and a secure electrical contact.

Mini Coax Solution:
A: ITC works with most 25-26 AWG mini coax depending on the manufacturer’s specs.  Essentially everything with an OD between 2.6mm & 2.9mm will work with ITC.

Q: Do you have a solution for identifying the connectors via color-coding?
A: Yes. Our 50 count bags include over 85 easy-peel stickers colored to industry standards for component, composite, audio, digital audio and subwoofer.

Q: What should I do with my compression tool?
A: Trash it.

Q: If ITC’s aren’t crimped or compressed, how do they achieve adequate grip?

RG6/RG59 and 24 AWG AudioQuest Solution
A: The ITC tooth-ring grabs hold of the jacket, thereby attaining greater pull force results than industry standards for crimp and compression methods – over 70 lbs! In addition, the Lotus-Grip System™ (spring-tensioned mechanism) in the center pin of the ITC holds firm to the center conductor for a very secure electrical connection. ITC provides the ideal mechanical AND electrical connection.

Mini Coax Solution
A: Achieving pull force ratings greater than compression standards, the grip provided by locking onto the braid results in over 20 lbs pull force.

Q: What if I accidentally leave a braid to center conductor short after making the termination?
A: No problem.  Check out our videos for very simple instructions on how to easily reuse the connectors. Please see our videos for a detailed look.

Q: Are ITC’s weatherproof?
A: ITC’s alone are not weatherproof. However when ITC’s are used with weatherproof boots, they become, effectively weatherproof.

Q: Does the ITC system really save time?
A: Yes.  ITC’s don’t cost any more so the time you save has a very direct affect on your bottom line savings.  The more ITC terminations performed in one installation, the more time you’ll save. ITC installers report, on average, a 30% labor savings vs. compression when building racks and head-ends.

Q: What kind of packaging do you offer?
A: ITC is a brand designed with the needs of the installation community in mind. ITC connectors come in 50 count bags that include a sheet of color-coding stickers.
