Amphenol RF has introduced new and improved SMA and N-Type coaxial connectors that have been optimized for low-loss cables. Low-loss cables incorporate additional shielding in the form of a bonded foil conductor, which helps to improve grounding. The cables and the newly-optimized connectors are matched to 50ohhm impedance, allowing for maximum and reliable signal transfer. New SMA and N-Type connectors are available in straight jack, bulkhead jack, right angle plug and straight plug configurations. These connectors feature a crimp outer attachment using standard hex crimp sizes, allowing for quick and secure connections. The redesigned SMA and N-Type connectors provide consistent electrical performance at high frequencies and feature improved grounding for more stable RF performance. Amphenol RF SMA and N-Type Low Loss cable connectors are ideal for applications requiring high reliability and low signal loss. Common applications include telecommunication networks, antennas, wireless systems, and broadband communications, says the company.
