Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd, the UK based specialist manufacturer of RF connectors and cable assemblies announces the introduction of a range of cost effective, field replaceable SMA and 2.9mm connectors providing solderless attachment to 0.141″ (RG402) semi rigid cables and 2.9mm connectors for 0.085″(RG405) and 0.141″ cables. Customers will find the main advantages of these connectors are assembly time saving, repeatability and performance.
Intelliconnect’s newly developed unique clamping technology provides similar I/L and VSWR results to standard soldered connectors. No special tooling is required and cable retention force is similar to soldered versions.
These stainless steel SMA and 2.9mm connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high frequency performance are very important. Typical applications include civil and military telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, military equipment, space and measurement systems.
Roy Philips, managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), comments, “Our new SMA and 2.9mm clamp connector series offers our customers an exciting alternative for assembling SMA connectors to semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”
