The Tinel-Lock ring is used to terminate copper cable braid directly onto the rear of the adapter. The adapter entry size and ring designator must be selected to suit the cable diameter and braid type.
This termination system consists of a modified spin-coupling adapter with a Tinel-Lock ring. The Tinel-Lock ring is made from a special shape memory metal that shrinks uniformly when heated. The resulting 360° termination withstands severe shock, vibration, temperature cycling, and corrosion.
