TV Aerial Plug

TV aerial plug is a colloquial name for a connector used to connect coaxial cables with each other and with terrestrial VHF/UHF roof antennas, antenna signal amplifiers, CATV distribution equipment, TV sets and FM / DAB-radio receivers.

In Europe and Australia the Belling-Lee connector (IEC 61169-2 radio-frequency coaxial connector of type 9,52) is commonly used for this purpose.

The Belling-Lee connector or IEC 61169-2 radio-frequency coaxial connector of type 9,52, known colloquially in countries where it is used as a TV antenna connector as a PAL antenna connectorIEC antenna connector, or simply as a TV aerial plug, is commonly used in Europe and Australia to connect coaxial cables with each other and with terrestrial VHF/UHF roof antennas, antenna signal amplifiers, CATV distribution equipment, TV sets, and FM and DAB radio receivers. It is one of the oldest coaxial connectors still commonly used in consumer devices.

[citation needed]

It was invented at Belling & Lee Ltd in Enfield, United Kingdom around 1922 at the time of the first BBC broadcasts.

The “9,52” in the name “IEC 61169-2 radio-frequency coaxial connector of type 9,52” refers to the outer diameter of the male connector, which is 9.525 millimetres (0.3750 in).

In their most common form the connectors just slide together. There is, however, also a screw-coupled variant which is specified to have a M14×1 thread.

Regular and miniature Belling-Lee plugs
There is also a miniature Belling-Lee connector which was used for internal connections inside some equipment (including BBC RC5/3 Band II receiver and the STC AF101 Radio Telephone). The miniature version is only about 4.4 millimetres (0.17 in) in diameter.

Belling Lee Limited still exists as a wholly owned subsidiary of Dialight, since 1992.

An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. Electrical connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices.[ An adapter can be used to effectively bring together dissimilar connectors.

Hundreds of types of electrical connectors are manufactured for power, signal and control applications. Connectors may join two lengths of flexible copper wire or cable, or connect a wire or cable to an electrical terminal.

Electronic symbols for male-ended and female-ended connectors.

Splitters can be used to run aerial cables for more than 1 television.
