Coax connector system designed for small cell mobile communications
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
HUBER+SUHNER has a new small coaxial connector system designed specifically to meet the space limitation requirements of today’s small cell mobile communications. According to the company, the industry’s move to the small cell approach has commanded the development of this small high-performance RF coaxial connector, the NEX10, to match the cell’s smaller radio and antenna.
The connector system has an excellent PIM stability of -166dBc, a flexible coupling mechanism, with either screw or quick lock and a compact ruggedized design with flange height of just 12.7mm.
The system’s robust design stops any damage or operator errors during installation and is optimised for corrugated cable sizes of up to 0.635cm. A weather protection boot – part of the interface – makes it ideal for outdoor use in extreme weather conditions.
The connector has been designed to meet existing and future demands of small cell networks for today’s 4G and the upcoming 5G networks.
