Amphenol RF has announced the expansion of their popular SMA product series with additional waterproof IP67 options. These front mount jacks are engineered for 1.32 and 1.37 mm micro-coax cable types which are often used in designs with space constraints or that require a high degree of flexibility. These connectors are well-suited for industrial automation, kiosks, and smart meter applications.
IP67 SMA panel mount jacks offer excellent RF performance up to 7 GHz and feature a threaded coupling mechanism for added vibration resistance. The front mount bulkhead configuration offers extra protection when it is fastened to the inside of the panel or enclosure. The micro-coax cable can also stabilize electrical characteristics even if bent while continuing to provide thermal resistance.
These SMA bulkhead jacks join an expanding portfolio of IP67 and non-IP67 RF interconnects that are currently available as standard solutions. These connectors provide low return and insertion loss and are available in a straight configuration to complement most industry-standard cable types.
