Avoiding frequency loss in communication systems with SMA cable assemblies

26-05-2023 | Amphenol | Industrial

Amphenol RF has expanded its pre-configured cable assembly portfolio with SMA assemblies on low-loss LMR-100A cable manufactured by its sister division, Amphenol Times Microwave. The full solution utilises the company's SMA connector interface, which provides a threaded coupling mechanism for a secure and reliable connection, which complements the low-loss nature of the LMR-100A cable type. This cable can readily replace RG-174 and RG-316 in wireless communication systems that need an easily routed low-loss RF cable.

These SMA cable assemblies are created with brass bodies and contacts, delivering outstanding electrical performance up to 12.4GHz. They are offered in a straight-to-straight plug (male) configuration in various standard lengths up to 3m, with custom lengths available upon request. These cables function from -40C to 85C and are constructed with a foil shield as well as the standard braided shield for extra shielding capabilities.

These low-loss SMA assemblies are ideal for GPS navigation, WLAN, and RF antenna connections.
