Amphenol RF, a specialist in the design, manufacture, and supply of RF interconnect systems for the automotive, broadband, instrumentation, internet, military/aerospace and wireless infrastructure markets, has expanded its versatile SMA product portfolio with additional reverse polarity bulkhead jacks.
These bulkhead connectors are constructed primarily with gold plated, brass while the contact is manufactured from gold plated, beryllium copper. The contact is soldered to the cable center conductor. The outer conductor works as an electromagnetic shield so the electrical signal transmitted on the center conductor is less susceptible to electromagnetic waves.
The bulkhead jacks are available in a straight configuration and engineered to accommodate a variety of micro coax cable types including 0.081 mm, 1.32 mm, 1.37 mm and RG-178 and are IP-67 rated (waterproof). This makes them ideal for applications in demanding environments where the system may be exposed to weather-related elements – antennas, base stations and satellite systems.
These RP-SMA interconnects join a robust product family that features a number of options for flexible micro-coaxial cables. These products are suitable for devices which require the cables to be moved and routed within the device such as rotating cameras on drones. These connectors are also heavily used in the industrial automation and cellular space.
