    Default Coax Connectors

    Does anyone know of a coax connector chart that I can use for a reference?
    Thanks in advance,
    Charlie
    On edit: I need the OD dimension. 1/4 inch?? Seems to be two of them and one is .249 inch od.

    Like what? Nothing came through.

    I purchased two Broadband Amplifiers and they each have a pair of female coax connectors, (input and output) that I need male mates for. Using my micrometer, I measured the outside diameter. It was .248 inches. (1/4 inch)

    Checking coax connectors I found there are 2 types and one has a larger od. I have to make sure of what I'll be buying and not end up with 4 connectors that way are too large.

    If you already have the coaxial cable terminated, you can get adaptors with different connector types either end.

    Beware plugging in huge cables to small sockets, they can break the sockets off with use over time, better to use a short, thinner patch-lead between the equipment and coax...
