A key benefit of these new colored connectors is that they allow for color coordination between devices.

Low voltage data cables distributor Big Cat Cables has launched a line of colored coaxial connectors. The connectors are available in blue, red, and black colors.

Offered in various configurations such as TNC, SMA, and N type, the connectors are intended for use in commercial and military markets for wireless communications, satcom, test labs, R&D applications, and many other scenarios requiring coaxial connections.

Technical details

The Big Cat Cables line of colored coaxial connectors are precision manufactured and feature a maximum operating frequency of up to 6 GHz.

The 50 ohm connectors exhibit low loss VSWR of 1.5 (max) and are approved for temperatures ranges from -40 Celsius to 155 Celsius.

They are available in male and female genders as well as standard and reverse polarity.

A key benefit of these new colored connectors is that they allow for color coordination between devices.
