PCT-FRS-59LMG Connector

21 mm stroke length

With Torque Retention, Continuity & Enhanced Shielding



PCT is widely known for its patented compression connector technology and is always researching new options to assist our customers with improving the quality of the drop, while controlling costs and keeping step with industry advancements. That attentiveness is apparent in our newest compression connector, the PCT-FRS-59LMG, providing the cost efficient, ultimate performance connector.

Metal Compression Ring Technology

One of the primary problems with most compression connector designs is that the compression technique used is dependent on plastic sliding under metal or metal sliding over plastic when compressed. The two pieces then simply snap together, easily failing over time and resulting in the connector sliding off of the cable.

The PCT-FRS connector family uses PCT’s patented and field proven, metal compression ring technology made famous in our DRS and TRS connector families. The unique metal compression ring ensures that the polymer sleeve remains locked in place after compression while remaining compressed over time and eliminating failure concerns.

Torque Retention Feature with Enhanced Shielding

Improper connector tightening during an installation is one of the most common mistakes made by self-installers, and even by many trained technicians. This oversight leads to interruptions and degraded performance in both video and data services resulting in countless truck rolls. Laboratory testing has proven that the PCT-FRS-59LMG’s unique features keep the connection tight even after vibration and temperature cycling while providing enhanced shielding and continuous grounding if left in a loosened state.

Continuous Ground Feature

PCT’s continuous ground feature – standard on our PCT-FRS-59LMG torque retaining connector – maintains greater immunity to ingress and egress due to loose connections, both inside and outside of the home.

Delivering High Quality Experience

PCT stands behind the philosophy that a tight connection is always the best connection but understands that an installation completed by a customer or installer may run the chance of being less than perfect. That’s why PCT develops products that help avoid service related issues, increase customer satisfaction and lower operational expenses for operators.
