Amphenol RF Unveils 2.2/5 Connector Series for 5G Wireless Applications

Amphenol RF has introduced the new 2.2/5 connector series. This interface is a compact version of the previously released 4.3/10 connector series with a footprint that is 53% smaller. This connector series is lightweight and can accommodate thick, low loss cables up to a half inch. The robust design makes these connectors ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

The 2.2/5 connector series are designed the meet the needs of applications which require low PIM in order to avoid interference in network quality during high-speed data transmission. These connectors offer flexibility in installation with the ability to blind mate 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.
