Amphenol RF Introduces Anti Torque SMA Connectors for Test and Measurement Applications

Amphenol RF has added anti-torque straight solder plug connectors to its line of SMA connectors. These durable RF interconnects are designed for use with several popular conformable cable types and support high-frequency applications up to 26.5 GHz when connected to SMA jacks and 34 GHz when connected to 3.5 mm jack connectors. They will also mate with 2.92 connectors and are ideal for test and measurement equipment.

These new SMA connectors utilize the reliable threaded coupling mechanism as the rest of the series for easy and secure mating. They are constructed from brass with gold plating and feature an anti-torque body designed to reduce stress on cable and solder joints.

The rugged anti-torque body allows the user to hold the body with one wrench while simultaneously torquing down the coupling nut to the mating connector with another. This design helps to prevent the entire assembly from twisting during installation which could result in damage to both the cable and connector.

These 50-ohm connectors join existing anti-torque SMA straight plugs available in stainless steel and designed for alternate conformable cable types.
