12-09-2023 | Amphenol | Industrial

Amphenol RF has expanded its between-series cable assembly series with N-Type plug to SMA plug assemblies on flexible RG-142 cable. Combining the more ruggedised N-Type connector with the lightweight, compact SMA connectors delivers a versatile application solution, including connecting to antennas within a device, radar, satellite systems and broadcast equipment.

This new cable assembly configuration is created on RG-142 cable, offering a low-loss solution with a bend radius of one inch. The N-Type to SMA assembly supplies reliable electrical performance up to 11GHz and features threaded interfaces on the ends for secure mating. Both the N-Type and SMA connectors provide rugged bodies machined from brass. The N-Type connector is nickel-plated, while the SMA connector is gold-plated. These connectors are engineered with gold-plated, brass contacts.

The fixed-length cable assembly joins a robust portfolio of flexible assemblies engineered on various industry-standard cable types. Flexible cable types are excellent for compact devices where space is a concern. These assemblies are obtainable in standard lengths from 6" to 3m.
