RF Adapters are passive coaxial components that are used to transfer signals from one connector interface to another. They can be used to transition signals from an SMA Connector Interface to an N-Type connector interface of BNC to TNC etc. The Geometry and gender of each connector interface can vary and be customized to meet the required of a user.
RF Coaxial Adapters are are broadly divided in to two types - In Series and Between Series.
In Series RF Adapters: These adapters have the same connector configuration on either side of the adapter. Some examples of these adapters would be SMA Male to Female, SMA Male to Male, N-Type Male to Female, and soo on. As long as the connector type is the same the adapters are known as 'In Series Adapters'. The gender on each of the connectors can be different and the geometry of the adapter can be selected to be straight or right angle based on where the adapter will be placed.
Between Series RF Adapters: These adapters have different connector configurations on either side of the adapter. Some examples of these adapters would be SMA Male to N-Type Female, BNC Female to N-Type Male etc. These RF Adapters have different connector configurations.
Another RF Adapter type is a Coax to Waveguide Adapter. This is another type of adapter that has a connector interface on one side and a waveguide interface on the other side. They are used to connect waveguide components to regular RF systems.
everything RF has listed thousands of RF Coaxial Adapters from multiple manufacturers and developed a parametric search tool to enable engineers to find adapters by specification. Parameters like connector interface, gender, geometry, frequency etc. can be specified for the adapter and the tool shows matching products from over 50 of the leading manufacturers. The products can be compared, datasheets can be downloaded and users can request a quotation for RF Adapters that meet their requirements. The quotation is directed to the manufacturer or distributors in your region who will then get back to the user with the details.
