Range of applications widened with right-angle SMA plugs for micro-coax cable

16-01-2023 | Amphenol | Industrial

Amphenol RF has expanded its SMA product family with reverse polarity right-angle plug configurations created to accommodate various flexible micro-coax cable types. These right-angle RP-SMA connectors provide a more accessible and secure connection with the 90-degree shape. They offer a threaded coupling mechanism ideal for vibration resistance which could be a concern in industrial automation, cellular infrastructure and base stations.

These connectors are engineered with the same features and benefits as the standard SMA interface. They are produced with gold-plated brass bodies, gold-plated, beryllium copper contacts and stainless-steel retaining rings and provide exceptional electrical performance up to 7GHz. The right-angle geometry makes the connector and cable more compact and are ideal for applications with space constraints. These RP-SMA plugs protect and improve the cable's longevity from bending effects. The micro-coax cable types these connectors are created to accommodate provide a high degree of flexibility and can stabilise the electrical characteristics even if bent while offering good thermal resistance.

These right-angle plugs join a robust portfolio of current standard reverse polarity products from the company. These compact connectors are a versatile RF interconnect that can be employed across verticals for new and existing technologies.
