PIM-free multifunction adapter

Region: U.S. and Canada
The PIM-guard family enhances its portfolio with a new PIM-free Multi function Adapter — the SA-1TR. This new innovative adapter increases flexibility with the following capabilities:

  • Snaps between SnapTak hangers to provide full 360-degree hanger rotation to manage cables which may run perpendicular to each other
  • Threads onto existing 3/8" or 1/2" bolt or U-bolt to create hanger attachment points for cable routing
  • Snaps into standard 3/4" holes to provide a 1-inch standoff from tower or cable ladder to match height of metal hangers for PIM hygiene applications

As with all our PIM-guard products, the SA-1TR adapter is designed and tested to protect your network from the harmful effects of PIM.

New and improved SnapTak adjustable hanger

Region: U.S. and Canada
CommScope has a new and improved version of the SSH-1416 SnapTak PIM-guard adjustable hanger for 14 mm to 16 mm cables. This hanger size is used primarily for ½” corrugated coax jumpers which fill tower tops with tight bends and hard angles to make the critical RF connections. The improved hanger features greater axial strength to control non-aligned cables and higher pull-out strength to manage cable dressing. The new design also features gripper tabs for easier removal. SnapTak hangers are a featured part of CommScope’s PIM-guard solutions, designed and tested to protect your network from the harmful effects of PIM. The new SSH-1416 V1.1 SnapTak hanger will begin shipping in May 2019 as a rolling change under its current part number.
