Quadrants SnapN is a new family of RF-coaxial connectors in the IMS Connector Systems range of snap-on connectors. IMS Connector Systems specialises in the development and production of high frequency connectors and this new range will be suitable for use in filters and as cable connections for mobile communications base stations, wireless local area network (WLAN) and measurement equipment.
The SnapN connectors are quick locking push-pull N type connectors that are backward compatible with all standard N type connectors. They can be mated with N type plugs and have a low engagement force of 30 N. The quick-lock mechanism has been designed to prevent unintentional disengagement due to shock, vibration or cable tension.
The connectors are suitable for standard flexible and semi-rigid cables for all applications up to 11 GHz and are available in panel mount versions. They have a guaranteed minimum of 200 mating cycles and the small outer diameter of 16mm results in a higher packing density.
