Fairview Microwave has released 18 new 4.3-10 connectors and adapters with low-PIM performance of -166dBc typical and a maximum operating frequency of 6GHz. Typical applications include wireless base stations, small cells, custom cable assemblies, antenna feeder cables, mobile communications systems and DAS.
The company’s new connectors and adapters deliver VSWR as low as 1.08:1 and low coupling torque. They feature silver-plated center contacts and a tri-metal finish on the body and outer conductors for corrosion resistance. These connectors and adapters are IP67-rated when mated for protection from dust and temporary moisture under immersion. They have an IEC 61169-54 compliant interface and provide a 30 percent reduction in footprint when compared to 7/16 DIN.
“Our new 4.3-10 connectors and adapters boast low-PIM performance plus resistance to weather and corrosion, which makes them ideally suited for DAS and other mobile communications systems infrastructure,” said Randy Leenerts, senior RF engineer at Fairview Microwave.
