Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
Amphenol RF introduced its latest innovation, the Mini Lock 7 (ML7) RF connector for wireless infrastructure markets. The ML7 combines proven advantages of the 7/16 interface with a new, low torque, quick coupling mechanism that speeds installation and reduces connector size up to 25 percent while delivering the same high performance quality and electrical performance users expect from Amphenol RF products. The ML7: lower costs and improved performance from the leader in RF technology.
Anoison Electronics offers a full range of QUICK LOCK coaxial connectors in three series: QMA, Mini-QMA and HPQN. The QMA offers comparable electrical performance to an SMA, DC to 18 GHz, and is inherently waterproof to IP 68. The Mini-QMA offers the same advantages of the QMA in a smaller package. The HPQN is designed to replace N connectors, where a quick connect/disconnect application is desired, DC to 18 GHz.
