Amphenol RF Provides Waterproof Front-Mount RP-SMA Connectors

Feb. 15, 2024
Amphenol RF’s RP-SMA front mount jacks are built with environmental conditions in mind.

Amphenol RF recently announced the expansion of its versatile SMA product portfolio with additional reverse polarity front mount bulkhead jacks. The bulkhead jacks are made to work with a bevy of micro coax cable types including 0.081 mm, 1.32 mm, 1.37 mm and RG-178 and are IP67 rated. This makes them excellent for applications (antennas, base stations, satellite systems, etc.) where there might be exposure to environmental elements.

The RP-SMA front mount jacks have a bulkhead design and come in the straight configuration. They are made mostly with gold plated brass, while the contact that is soldered to the cable center conductor is manufactured from gold plated beryllium copper. The outer conductor acts as an electromagnetic shield so the electrical signal transmitted on the center conductor is less vulnerable to electromagnetic waves.

These RP-SMA front mount jacks join a product family that has several options for flexible micro-coaxial cables. They are best used for devices that need the cables to be moved and routed within the device, such as rotating cameras on drones. They also are consistently utilized in industrial automation and cellular spaces.
