Amphenol RF has expanded its selection of waterproof SMA connectors with further front mount bulkhead jack options. These IP67 straight crimp connectors are created to suit a mixture of industry-standard semi-rigid and flexible cable types. The durable construction and compact size of these RF female connectors make them excellent for limited space applications, such as drones, industrial automation, and Bluetooth and cellular technology.
Front-mount bulkhead SMA jacks may be fastened on the inside of a panel or enclosure to deliver additional security for sensitive systems. These tamper-resistant connectors are aided further by their threaded coupling mechanism, which adds to the robust design of the connectors by providing vibration resistance for applications up to 26.5GHz. They are fully tested to IP67 specifications in mated and unmated conditions.
These SMA connectors are intended to support cables that offer superior performance and stability in high-temperature and demanding environments. They join a strong portfolio of waterproof connectors, adapters and cable assemblies offered off-the-shelf and as custom solutions. These products can be employed within indoor or outdoor applications and give reliable mechanical durability in either setting.
