Amphenol RF has expanded its cable mount N-Type product portfolio with further IP-rated rear mount bulkhead jack configurations. These 50-ohm RF connectors create a durable option with a threaded coupling mechanism. This popular coupling mechanism provides secure mating and vibration resistance which is excellent for applications including antennas, base stations and satellite systems.

These jacks support various flexible cable types, including RG-55, RG-58 and RG-213 cable types which are commonly used in applications that need high power handling and low VSWR and insertion loss. These connectors are IP67 rated in mating and unmated condition. The ruggedised construction delivers protection against the effects of temporary submersion and exposure to weather-related elements. These rear mount jacks operate up to 11GHz, dependent on the cable type.

Bulkhead jacks mount via the enclosure and use a lock nut and washer, which fasten to the front of the connector. They are engineered with nickel-plated brass bodies, hex nuts and washers, and gold-plated brass contacts.
