Maury Microwave has released its new Test Essentials™ line of precision and lab adapters. The Test Essentials line expands Maury’s portfolio of RF/microwave adapters by adding two new lines alongside its existing Calibration (Metrology) family: Test Essentials Lab Adapters and ColorConnect™ Precision Adapters.

Test Essentials Lab Adapters have been designed for daily use in RF/microwave labs and production facilities and offer one of the industry’s best price/performance ratios. Test Essentials Lab Adapters feature excellent electrical performance, rugged construction for durability, repeatable mating and high reliability. Test Essentials Lab Adapters are available in SMA, N Type, 3.5mm, 2.92mm, 2.4mm and 1.85mm in-series and between-series.

ColorConnect Precision Adapters have been designed for lab and field use where quality, performance, ease-of-identification and ease-of-use are critical. New manufacturing techniques have given ColorConnect Precision Adapters improved VSWR specifications bridging the gap between calibration-grade metrology adapters and daily-use lab adapters (see Figure 1). Following the proposed IEEE high-frequency connector/adapter color convention, ColorConnect Precision Adapters are the first commercially available products to offer clear indications of compatibility and intermatability. ColorConnect makes it a simple matter to avoid and eliminate damaged equipment, degraded equipment reliability, degraded performance and lengthy maintenance times due to improper mating (and attempted mating) of incompatible adapters. ColorConnect Precision Adapters are available in N Type, 3.5mm, 2.92mm, 2.4mm and 1.85mm in-series and between series.
