RF range from Lane Electronics serves mil-aero applications
RF connectors, RF cables, lightning protectors and RF power limiters for a range of mil-aero applications have been assembled into a package by Lane Electronics. The various connectors are manufactured by Huber+Suhner and meet the high quality and performance standards required across the mil-aero sector, says Lane.
“Since Lane was established more than 50 years ago, we have provided customers of all sizes with a wide variety of power and signal connector solutions designed for use in land, airborne and ship-based applications,” says Lane’s sales director, Nick Wheeler.
He added that many of the areas where electronics technology plays an increasingly major role include systems that rely on RF connectivity.
“These applications include fixed and mobile communications, ground, air and ship-borne radar installations, navigation aids, portable jamming equipment, satellite- based systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, advanced imaging systems, displays and tablets,” he continued.
Huber+Suhner provides RF connectors for the transmission of analogue and digital signals and has many years of experience in the engineering and production of coaxial connectors
Lane Electronics offers a comprehensive stock portfolio, with next day delivery of many standard RF connectors with no minimum order value or quantity. Standard versions include BNC, SMB, N Type, SMA and TNC connectors. For non-standard connectors, Huber+ Suhner can develop customer specific solutions.
For cable assemblies, Huber+Suhner and Lane Electronics offer customers access to a comprehensive range of RF and microwave cable assemblies. Lane’s in-house and flexible cable assembly facility allows customers to select from standard cable types and connectors, but with non-standard cable lengths, to create their own cable assembly combination.
Lane can supply to order cable assemblies built around Huber+Suhner’s high performance RF Enviroflex and SPUMA coaxial cables and fitted as standard with BNC, SMB, N Type, SMA and TNC connectors. Other RF connectors can be specified to suit the application. These are available with no minimum order quantity. They are assembled by the company’s trained staff and fully tested and documented to Huber+Suhner’s recognised stringent standards.
Lane also provides a comprehensive selection of lightning and surge protectors covering all major protection technologies, frequency bands, installation options and interfaces. Devices include gas discharge and quarter wave stub type solutions for RF applications, available with bulkhead, stud and clamp mounting options and offered with a selection of connector types including SMA, BNC, N and 7/16.
The coaxial lightning electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and nuclear EMP (NEMP) protectors of the current Huber+Suhner RF protection portfolio are designed to meet the stringent requirements of the RF/microwave, telecommunications and wireless industry and cover civil, security and defence applications
Lane is also the source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub-miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test and measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
