FS1RCA - ICM RG59 Mini Coaxial Cable Compression RCA Connector
The ICM FS1RCA connector is a compression type RCA connector used to terminate 24 to 26 gauge solid center conductor RG59 mini coaxial cables. If you are using (3) or (5) conductor mini RG59 RGB cables or single conductor RG59 mini coax for commercial video applications then the FS1RCA is the right connector for you. The FS1RCA offers the same high quality 360 degree compression crimp that is found in all of the ICM F-CONN compression connectors. The F-CONN line of compression connectors from ICM are the #1 rated connectors in the home theater and commercial A/V industry. No other compression connectors protect your terminations from environmental conditions that could threaten the life or integrity of your connections.
The FS1RCA features a patented no-blind entry system that allows you to install the cable correctly into the connector prior to terminating. The no-blind entry mechanism guarantees a perfect termination every time! This means less wasted connectors and faster installation times.
For best results we recommend terminating the FS1RCA connector with the ICM Cable Pro CPLCCT-SLM compression tool and the ICM PSA59/6/RGB cable stripper. The entire line of premium ICM connectors and tools are available right here at Cabling Plus!

What cable is the FS1RCA connector designed for?
The FS1RCA compression RCA connector is designed for terminating 24 to 26 gauge solid mini RG59 coaxial cable. It will not work with any other cable types.
What tool do I need terminate the FS1RCA compression connector?
You can use various compression tools to terminate the FS1RCA but we do recommend using the Cable Pro CPLCCT-SLM compression tool. It is best practice to use the tool of the same company that designed and manufactures the connector. This is a 100% compression type connector so there is no soldering required.
Do I need a special wire stripper for mini-coax cable?
You need a wire stripper that will properly strip and prepare a 24 to 26 gauge mini RG59 coaxial cable. For best results we recommend using the Cable Pro PS/59/6/RGB coaxial cable stripper. It is specially designed to prepare RG59, RG6, and RG59 mini coaxial cables.
How many pieces is the FS1RCA connector made of?
The FS1RCA RCA connector has a patented one piece design that ensures an accurate and high performance termination. There are no parts to put together or extra pieces to worry about. It also features a patented “no blind entry” system that makes sure the cable is in the connector perfectly prior to terminating. No other connector system is easier to work with!
Are compression RCA connectors better than crimp style?
Crimping connectors on a cable is really a thing of the past. Using compression connectors will ensure the highest performance and strongest terminations. The FS1RCA connectors provide a 360 degree clamp connection to your cable which provides air tight connections with the strongest pull force in the industry.
