SMA bulkhead jacks mount with micro-coax cable

Amphenol RF has added cable mount jacks, designed to accommodate industry-standard micro-coax 0.81 mm cable, to its SMA connector series.

These SMA bulkhead jacks are machined with brass bodies and beryllium copper contacts with gold plating and are available in the straight crimp configuration with standard and reverse polarity options.

These connectors are designed to mount with micro-coax cable which the company says provides additional flexibility and can stabilise the electrical characteristics even if bent.

They feature a threaded coupling mechanism that ensures uniform contact of the outer conductors and enables the SMA connector to minimise reflections and attenuation at higher frequencies. Amphenol states that this allows for a high degree of mechanical strength and durability.

They offer electrical performance up to 6 GHz and join the line up of SMA connectors, adapters and cable assembly products.

The lightweight, compact and vibration-proof design suit these connectors to applications where space constraints exist such as wireless networking and antennas. Target areas include drones, test and measurement equipment, industrial automation and inspection, and Bluetooth and cellular technology.

Amphenol RF manufactures coaxial connectors for use in radio frequency, microwave, and data transmission system applications.

Headquartered in Danbury, Connecticut, USA, Amphenol has global sales, marketing and manufacturing locations in North America, Asia and Europe.

Standard products include RF connectors, coaxial adapters and RF cable assemblies. Custom engineered products include multi-port ganged interconnect, blind mate and hybrid mixed-signal solutions.
