The NEX10 Connector Interface is a low PIM coax connector interface jointly developed by HUBER+SUHNER, RADIALL and ROSENBERGER for small cell applications. The highlight of the NEX10 connector system is its robustness, PIM stability and flexibility of different coupling mechanisms (torque/screw and push-pull).

The interface design provides PIM stable blind mate connectors and a standardized multi-coax solution consisting of up to four ¼” corrugated cables in one housing.

Key Features for the NEX10 Connector Interface:

  • Operates up to 20 GHz with excellent return loss
  • Three coupling mechanisms (push pull, screw and hand screw)
  • Low PIM of -166 dBc, independent of coupling mechanism
  • Optimized for cable sizes of up to ¼” corrugated cables
  • Small size, flange height of 12.7 mm
  • Protection of contact areas
  • Rubber boot weather protection

The NEX10 Connector Interface is ideal for small cells (4G and 5G), distributed antenna systems (DAS), in-building architecture, and MIMO applications.
