What is BNC connector?
BNC connector is a series of connectors used for connecting thinnet coaxial cabling to various networking components. BNC connectors use a twist-and-lock mechanism that provides a secure connection between network cabling and components.
BNC connectors are typically used on 10Base2 Ethernet networks. The different types of BNC connectors include the following:
- BNC cable connector: Soldered or crimped to the ends of a thinnet cable
- BNC T-connector: Used to connect a network interface card (NIC) to a thinnet cable segment
- BNC barrel connector: Used to connect two pieces of thinnet cable
- BNC terminator: Provides a 50-ohm termination for the free end of a thinnet cable
Networks must have two BNC terminators, one BNC T connector per workstation, two BNC cable connector per workstation.
