DX Engineering proudly announces our new, ultra-high quality, PL-259 connector that is so different from previous designs that we have a Patent**! DX Engineering Next Generation Crimp/Solder 8X UHF Male Connectors are now available to build your custom coaxial cable assemblies.

Engineering studies have confirmed that the absolute best RF connections for double-shielded cables are made by crimping the shield, not soldering. However, most PL-259 crimped center pins aren't long enough and some don't even have enough crimped contact area, which affects reliability. DX Engineering has solved those issues with these custom-designed connectors that we introduced on new DX Engineering 8XDX Series Coaxial Cable Assemblies. These PL-259s have soldered center pins that are full length and full diameter, so they connect properly, even with worn SO-239s.

DX Engineering Next Generation PL-259CS8X series connectors achieve exceptional RF performance with these features:

* Fits all standard RG-8X size cables including DXE-8X, LMR-240 as well as RG-59, RG-62 and many others, including Belden 9258, 8241, 1505 and 7808 series
* All silver-plated brass shell and body
* Silver-plated center pin securely mounted in PTFE dielectric
* Center pin scalloped-tip allows generous solder flow
* Crimped shield connection provides maximum reliability for all cables
* Deep, double-knurled threaded shells for secure finger tightening
* Available in packages of 6, 12 or 24 connectors

NOTE: DX Engineering offers reasonably priced, professional grade cable prep and connector crimping tools for an entire range of cables and connectors. Click "More Details" and the "Suggested Parts" tab to see available related products.

Now you don't have to use the same old PL-259s. These advanced-technology PL-259 connectors let you build the highest quality coaxial cable assemblies. We designed them to be strong and lightweight and they represent a landmark improvement over decades-old, unchanged connector designs. This time, new IS better! Order DX Engineering Next Generation Crimp/Solder 8X UHF Male Connectors today and take advantage of DX Engineering innovations in RF connectivity!
