Innovative solderless RF connectors win award
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd, have won the Interconnection Product of the Year award at the recent Electronic Industry Awards ceremony with their innovative UK designed and manufactured 2.9mm Solderless RF Connectors.
“We are pleased and proud that our industry peers have voted our new 2.9mm solderless connector series Interconnection Product of the Year for 2018,” comments Roy Philips, managing director of Intelliconnect (Europe). “This new connector offers our customers an exciting alternative for assembling connectors to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly speeds manufacture and facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”
The cost-effective connectors offer solderless attachment to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables. System architects will find the main benefits of these connectors are faster assembly time, repeatability and performance, plus they also give field replaceable connectivity.
The company's newly developed clamping technology offers similar I/L and VSWR results to standard soldered connectors. No special tooling is needed and cable retention force is comparable to soldered versions.
These stainless steel connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high-frequency performance are very important. Typical applications include civil and defence telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, defence equipment, space and measurement systems.
