Amphenol RF Introduces 2.2-5 Connectors for 5G Applications

Amphenol RF has announced a new series of 2.2-5 connectors. These connectors are a miniaturized version of 4.3-10 connectors, designed to meet the tight space conditions of small cells in mobile applications. 2.2-5 connectors have the form factor of a TNC connector with electrical performance similar to 4.3-10 connectors. This expansion includes new plug and jack cable mount configurations designed for 0.141” conformable, RG-402, Times Tflex 402 and Belden 1673A semi-rigid cable. The 2.2-5 interface is a compact version of the 4.3-10 connector series with a footprint that is 53% smaller. These connectors are lightweight and robust which makes them ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

The 2.2-5 connector series is designed the meet the needs of applications that require low PIM in order to avoid interference in network quality during high-speed data transmission. These connectors offer flexibility in installation and are IP68 rated in the mated condition. This allows for prolonged exposure to the elements without compromising the performance.

2.2-5 connectors are precision machined with a brass body and a beryllium copper contact. They are ideal for wireless applications such as small cells, mobile networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), low power base stations and in-building architecture, and are critical to 5G communication technology.
