This system greatly enhances the reliability and repeatability of SO63 series terminators while reducing installed cost. The heat-shrinkable thermoplastic sleeve contains a precisely engineered, fluxed solder band that is visible through the sleeve. The band provides exactly the amount of solder and flux required to terminate the ground lead to the cable shield. Encircling the band is a small temperature indicator ring. This ring melts only when the surfaces to be joined have reached the correct soldering temperature, thus ensuring a properly soldered connection. Process control is built into each sleeve.
Transparent insulation sleeve provides encapsulation, inspectability, strain relief, and insulation
Prefluxed solder preform provides a controlled soldering process
One-piece design offers easy installation and lower installed cost
Optional preinstalled ground leads provide convenience and ease of installation
