PPC® at Futurecom 2010
Date: Mon, 10/25/2010 - 13:58
PPC® has made great strides in the telecommunications industry. For more than 65 years, the company has been committed to the improvement of the connector/cable interface and to providing innovative solutions for industry-wide needs. PPC has been issued eight patents in 2010, and a number of major carriers today use and appreciate the company's technologies
At Futurecom 2010, PPC will showcase its AllTight® and CompPro lines of high-quality connectors, which are designed to excel in harsh operating environments to meet increasing RF electrical performance requirements. The durable, resilient connectors provide a secure and virtually indestructible connection while completely sealing out moisture. PPC's solutions eliminate the costs of using poor connections — money spent on lost system time, discarded material, and ultimately, unhappy customers — greatly reducing operational expenses and increasing profits.
"In Brazil and similar climates, moisture from rain and humidity can wreak havoc on connectors, resulting in dropped calls and service visits for wireless carriers. At Futurecom 2010, PPC will demonstrate several innovative products that are designed for such harsh conditions, providing a reliable connection while completely sealing out moisture. The result is lower operational expenses for carriers and increased satisfaction for their customers," said Hans Fuller, director of marketing and strategy for PPC.
New PPC® Products at Futurecom 2010:
PPC® AllTight® Connector
The PPC® AllTight® line of high-quality compression connectors for 50-ohm corrugated and smooth wall feeders dramatically reduces dropped calls and service visits for wireless carriers, thanks to the unique compression technology employed to fasten the connectors onto transmission cables. AllTight connectors compress on three surfaces: the outer conductor, the back of the jacket, and the center conductor. This creates 100-percent waterproof sealing, thereby reducing downtime and maintenance over a cell site's entire lifecycle. The AllTight connectors feature industry-high pull strength of up to several kN, ensuring the devices will stay firmly in place, and 2X pin strength for superior RF signal performance. A solid one-piece construction enables easy one-minute installation. With no assembly required, AllTight connectors eliminate the potential for loose or lost parts and for human error.
PPC® CompPro Connector
PPC® will also demonstrate the CompPro line of high-quality connectors for 50-ohm braided cable. As with all PPC connectors, the CompPro line offers patented 360-degree compression that seals out moisture, dust, and air, as well as prevents water ingress, thereby reducing service calls, downtime, and maintenance over a cell site's entire lifecycle. The CompPro connectors feature industry-high pull strengths, ensuring the devices will stay firmly in place, and 2X pin strength for superior RF signal performance. A solid one-piece construction enables easy one-minute installation. With no assembly required, CompPro connectors significantly reduce the potential for loose or lost parts.
PPC® Wireless Jumpers
PPC® will showcase its factory-made wireless jumpers for corrugated and smooth-wall cables at Futurecom 2010. Allowing installers to connect devices without having to construct the jumpers on site, the units save time and money by improving efficiency while decreasing dropped calls due to failed connections. The 100 percent preassembled cables utilize compression technology to increase RF and network reliability while reducing errors at the site and eliminating the potential for lost parts. This superior mechanical attachment preserves cable corrugations and eliminates movement at the connector/cable junction with 5,400 pounds of force to seal onto the cable and lock all pieces in place. Guaranteed to work or replaced for free, the jumpers are pre-swept for RL and PIM, and they feature an extra-wide built-in moisture seal to reduce water penetration. PPC's wireless jumpers are available now in standard lengths, with custom lengths available upon request.
