The 132170-12-BC from Amphenol RF is an SMA Jack to SMA Jack Adapter with Black Plating that operates from DC to 18 GHz. Black plating is an excellent choice for applications in areas such as precision positioning systems, radar receivers, surveillance equipment, and drones used to avoid enemy detection.
The adapter is available in cadmium-free, non-reflective black zinc cobalt for covert and military applications. Zinc cobalt alloy plating is RoHS and REACH compliant and does not compromise the RF performance or conductivity. This plating is corrosive-resistant and approved for 48 hours of salt spray exposure which makes it an excellent choice for highly demanding land, sea, or airborne environments.
The adapter can withstand a minimum dielectric voltage of 1000 VRMS and has an impedance of 50 Ohm. This straight bulkhead adapter has a return loss of -17.7 dB and a maximum VSWR of 1.30. It is available in an IP68-rated Brass package that measures Ø7.5 x 22.5 mm with Beryllium Copper contacts. This adapter is ideal for field communication arrays, handheld military/law enforcement radios, portable radar, precision positioning systems, and surveillance equipment applications.
