High Definition BNC Connectors

____________________________

The Shadow ™ in the trade name for the best high definition BNC connector available at any price Shadow™ BNC connectors fit all standard broadcast cables and utilize most standard existing tooling. These connectors are made from precision machined brass. Insulator material is high density TFE to maintain a perfect dielectric constant. Bomar connectors utilize a .042 diameter gold plated contact pin to maintain the best return loss in high definition applications.
The Shadow™ is precision machined (not die-cast) from brass. A special black nickel plating is applied for a beautiful finish that is easily identifiable as a high definition connector. Each connector is precision matched to a specific cable type.
Uses standard commercial tooling.
