The BNC connector is named after its bayonet mount locking mechanism, and its inventors. (Paul Neill and Carl Concelman). The BNC connector features two bayonet lugs on the female (jack) and mating is fully achieved with a quarter turn of the coupling nut.
BNC connectors are typically used with miniature and sub miniature Coax cables, such as RG174, RG58 and RG59, but can be used with larger low loss cables such as RG213 and LMR600.
BNC connectors are built to match the characteristic impedance of the coax cable or equipment. Typically these would be 50 ohm and 75 ohm.
