Coaxial adapters have low PIM to maintain network quality

Equipped with low passive intermodulation (PIM), the Nex10 adapters are robust and compact to reduce interference and degradation in network quality, said Amphenol RF.

The lightweight interface’s compact design is 50 per cent smaller than the traditional 4.3-10 series and offers a transition from 4.3-10, 7-16. N-Type and SMA products. Nex10 allows for more connection density in comparison to other connectors or adapters, said Amphenol. The small footprint makes it suitable for small cells, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and MIMO (multiple in multiple out) applications.

Nex10 adapters can be used where RF signals need to be combined or distributed to an antenna in multi-operator, multi band DAS applications. They are designed to address PIM in a network to reduce interference that can degrade the network quality. The design operates up to 6GHz.

The Nex10 interface features a threaded coupling mechanism for secure mating with all between series adapter configurations using this type of mating on both ends. All Nex10 adapter options have a straight orientation. The ruggedised design and compact size allows this series to meet the reduced size requirements for shrinking technology including 5G / LTE designs.
