High-frequency connectors added to broad coax connector portfolio

13-10-2022 | Wurth | Industrial

Würth Elektronik has expanded its portfolio of coaxial connectors, adding its already comprehensive Coax Connector Portfolio. The SMA connectors are specially created for a frequency range of up to 18GHz at an impedance of 50-Ohm. Due to their threaded coupling technology, they are ideal as data lines in environments subject to strong vibration. They are certified as a standard interface accessory to MIL-STD-348 and are characterised by their extremely sophisticated production techniques (CNC-milled down to a tolerance of 0.003mm, gold-plated contacts).

These new additions include SMA and RPSMA bulkhead jacks with threaded coupling technology, a straight socket, and regular and reverse polarity, THT connectors and end-launch connectors for PCB top-edge mounting – all offer IP67 protection class. New items also incorporate the right-angled SMA adapter WR-ADPT and a series of versions of the RPSMA cable plug fitted with multiple cable types (RG174/U, RG-178/U, RG316/U), each in the standard lengths of 152mm and 305mm.
