I've used several different brands of connectors on 1/2" Heliax, and the
assembly instructions are all pretty similar, but the specifics vary.
Basically you need to trim the cable so a small length of center
conductor is exposed, and a longer length of shield is exposed, then put
the back part on along with any o-rings that may come with the
connector, and screw the front part onto the back part. Unless this is
a solder type connector, where you have to solder the center pin onto
the conductor. This is the basic idea, but... without the specific
instructions, I can't give any specific information. I don't have any
of these connectors around to check for myself, and the instruction
sheets that come with them are probably long gone from the last install
I did with these.
I wasn't able to find an A4PNM-W, the only connectors that Amphenol
lists are the A4PNM (solderless) and A4PNM-S (solder type). Here's a
drawing of one: http://drawings.amphenolrf.com/Customer_Outline/CA4PNM.pdf
If you do a search for A4PNM at amphenolrf.com you will find some more
info. Unfortunately the links to installation instructions don't work.
One could always contact Amphenol for assistance.
