Connecting CCTV cameras to the security system requires some connector. BNC & UHF are common types of connectors used across the industry.
These connectors are also used for other applications, like radios and antennas. Both of these connectors are very different from each other in size and shape.
To interconnect these connectors, you will need an adopter kit.
List of Best BNC to UHF Adapter Kits
Following is the list of 5 Best BNC to UHF Adapter connector kits.
- Onelinkmore BNC to UHF Adapter Kit
- TUOLINK BNC to UHF Adapter Kit
- EXGOOFIT PL259/UHF to BNC Adapter
- SUPERBAT Adapter Kit with three ft. of coaxial cable
Following are the type of connectors you may need:
- BNC Male to UHF Male (Same as UHF Male to BNC Male)
- BNC Male to UHF Female (Same as UHF Female to BNC Male)
- BNC Female to UHF Male (Same as UHF Male to BNC Female)
- BNC Female to UHF Female (Same as UHF Female to BNC Female)
Below are details of each kit and which one you should select.
1. Onelinkmore BNC to UHF Adapter Kit
Onelinkmore is one of the most renowned brands when it comes to RF connectors and plugs.
I was happy to have the chance to check out these adapters because you can never have too many on hand.
These four adapters allow you to connect BNC and SO-239/PL-259 connections. S0-239/PL-259 are also known as UHF connections.
I have noticed the quality of these connectors to be on par with Amateur Radio & DHT electronics. They will fit snugly to all most all of the compatible radio equipment. The connections were perfect and not slightly loose, as you will get on cheap Chinese connectors.
However, I wish the knurlings were not absent in these adapters.
I adore this Onelinkmore adapter kit, which works great for all BNC to UHF Male/Female combinations. It’s an easy-to-install plug-and-play connector kit.
This BNC to UHF adapter’s attenuated signal is less than 0.1 dB. VSWR is less than 1.15(DC-1G). High-quality construction ensures consistent low signal loss and increased signal transmission.
The construction of these Onelinkmore BNC adapters is phenomenal. The body is made of a brass copper with a Teflon insulator between the inner pin and outer ring.
Overall, its a provides a reliable signal transmission at all times. I would highly recommend buying these. The housing is water resistant, but you should still avoid it being wet.
- High-quality Build
- Very Popular
- Gold Plated Parts
- Perfect for RF applications
The manufacturer claims a Durability of 1000 mate-life cycles, which does not look unconvincing after you have the product in hand.
You can use this BNC to UHF Adapter Kit with external Wi-Fi antennas, coaxial cables, wireless LAN devices, and other devices.
2. TUOLINK BNC to UHF Adapter Kit
So, these Tuolink Adapter kits are the second on my list of the best BNC to UHF adapter kits.
Like the previous Onelinkmore kit, the package arrived with FOUR ADAPTER KITS. They cover all male/female combinations for UHF to BNC connections.
Same shiny silver build, gold-plated pins, and Teflon insulators.
I have found these adapters to be highly reliable and have excellent build quality. The manufacturer has informed us that the internal pin is made out of Copper and then plated with Gold for high conductivity. While the outer casing is made of brass and then plated with nickel.
I will recommend these connectors for applications like FPV Antennas, Extension Cables, Coaxial Cables, CCTV, WiFi Radios, Radio Transceivers, LMA, Video, Telecom, Wireless & Wired devices, Antennas, Broadcast, and other similar devices.
Similar to the Onelinkmore adopter set, this one also Includes four different types of UHF to BNC connectors;
- One pc of UHF Female to BNC Male connector
- One pc of UHF Female to BNC Female connector
- One pc of UHF Male to BNC Male connector
- One pc of UHF Male to BNC Female connector
- UHF to BNC connector kit
- Wide Application
- Metal Build
- 12 Months Warranty
I am sure about the quality of this product. It’s made of premium materials to assure product stability and durability. The good thing is, Tuolink offers a 12-month warranty and return service.
3. EXGOOFIT PL259/UHF to BNC Adapter
Like the other two sets recommended above, the Exgoofit adapter set also comes with four adapters to cater to possible scenarios.
- UHF Male to BNC Male
- UHF Male to BNC Female
- UHF Female to BNC Male
- UHF Female to BNC Female
The build quality on the Exgoofit adapter kit is similar to what offers the Onelinkmore & Tuolink. Same Gold plated Copper for the internal connection, and Nickel plated Brass for the outer ring.
Following are a few specifications of these adapters:
- Attenuates signal less than 0.1db.
- VSWR is less than 1.15(DC-1G)
- Impedance: 50 Ohm
- 4 Connector Kit
- Gold plated center pin
- VSWR < 1.15(DC-1G)
- Lifetime Warranty
These adapters also work great with Antennas, Coaxial Cables, WiFi Radios, Wireless Devices, etc.
Exgoofit claims to offer a lifetime warranty which I find a little over promise. But I am sure they will over last your Radio devices.
4. SUPERBAT Adapter Kit with three ft. of coaxial cable
Ok, so the package arrived with an additional cable having a BNC Male connector on one end and an SO239(UHF Female) connection on the other.
The coaxial cable is quite handy when I require to extend the antenna a little more. Since I have all of the four adapter kits, I can convert the cable to any format I want.
Like the cable is BNC MALE to UHF FEMALE, I can convert the BNC MALE into BNC FEMALE by attaching a UHF MALE to BNC FEMALE Adapter on the UHF FEMALE side of the cable.
The cable length is 3ft. The Cable Type is RG58, with more than 1000 mating lifetimes.
It’s a high-quality adapter set which I liked. The Impedance on the connectors is just 50 Ohm.
The adapter set has the following connectors:
- 1pcs BNC Female to BNC Female Adapter
- 1pcs – UHF Male(PL259) to UHF Male(PL259) Adapter
- 1pcs – BNC Female to UHF Female(SO239) Adapter
- 1pcs – BNC Female to UHF Male(PL259) Adapter.
- BNC Male to UHF Female Cable Length
- Impedance: 50 Ohm
- For RF Application Use
- 1 Month Replacement Warranty
Superbat is confident about the quality of this adapter set. They even offered me a 1-MONTH Replacement Warranty.
You can easily swap the kit if you unluckily receive a flawed one.
