Stainless steel, anti-torque connectors and cable assemblies
Amphenol RF added the anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies to its SMA product family.
Amphenol RF recently introduced anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies to its SMA (Sub-Miniature version A) product family. The connectors feature anti-torque bodies, which the company says allow the user to hold the body with one wrench while simultaneously torqueing down the coupling nut to its mating connector with another. “This helps to keep the entire assembly from twisting, thereby preventing damage to both the cable and the connector during installation,” the company explained.
The connectors have a passivated stainless steel coupling nut over a gold-plated connector body. These connectors are available in straight plug configurations and designed to terminate with 0.085-inch conformable cable as well as 0.141-inch conformable cable.
The anti-torque stainless steel SMA cable assemblies are available in straight-plug-to-straight-plug configurations with 0.085-inch or 0.141-inch diameter conformable semi-rigid cable.
The anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies are designed to operate up to 18 GHz, which Amphenol RF says makes them ideal for high-frequency applications.
“For applications requiring a more-flexible cable, TFlex 405 by Amphenol times Microwave is available,” the company noted. “Cables are available in standard imperial lengths of 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 18, 24 and 36 inches, as well as metric lengths of 0.25, 0.50, and 1.0 meters. Custom lengths are available.”
