Advantages of Holland’s Premium Design
Lower Insertion Loss
The G-F81 series has approximately 1/3 the insertion loss of standard splices at higher frequencies.(Savings of over .5 dB at 2 GHz).
Higher Frequency Operation
The internal air dielectric in combination with the symmetrically round pin provide superior matching over wide frequencies between DC and 3 GHz.
Higher Return Loss
With a return loss of over 35 dB @1 GHz, as compared to 13 dB for standard splices, the G-F81 can assure a higher match resulting in faster digital speeds. The G-F81 series exceeds current SCTE minimum RL levels of 20 dB.
Flat Port Ends
The G-F81F series uses a patented method to provide flat ports ends on both sides meeting the SCTE specifications of flatness and aperture. Patent # 6,113,431.
Round, Multi-Point Seizing Pin
The patented multi-point seizing pin provides a larger contact area than standard, dual flat pin splices. This results in lower contact resistance and thus higher current handling capability when needed, as well as a greater resistance to long term center conductor oxidation. The patented design also creates a mild wiping action which removes a few microns of oxidation upon insertion.
Beryllium Copper Seizing Pin
The use of the more expensive beryllium copper material for the center conductor seizing pins insures a greater holding force than the traditional phosphor bronze or copper pins used in standard splices. The advanced material also maintains a higher spring tension over repetitive insertions.
Accepts a Wider Range of Cable Center Conductors
Due to the greater elastic capability of beryllium copper, the G-F81 series can accept a wider variation in cable center conductor sizes and maintains its high strength on the smallest cables even after repetitive insertions of the largest cables.
