San-tron, Inc., a leading manufacturer of RF coaxial connectors and cable assemblies, has announced the release of their new, pSeries pressurized connectors which provide low-loss, high-stability performance through 30 GHz at +/-65 psi. These pressurized connectors, which meet the IP68 standard, feature a simplified, three-piece design – body, center contact, and an innovative dielectric – which eliminates troublesome internal O-rings, gaskets, and silicone greases.

“San-tron’s new pSeries pressurized connector design expands the typical operating frequency ranges through 30 GHz, while eliminating failure-prone internal O-rings,” noted San-tron Director of Engineering Fred Hull. “These RF-enhanced connectors have been specified on a number of programs, including 20 GHz ground-based satellite links, agricultural GPS systems, the London Underground, and space-borne systems.”

Pressurized coaxial connectors are vital where high pressure is maintained for extended periods and in environments needing protection against moisture and other contaminates – such as agriculture, aviation, and marine applications. San-tron’s pSeries pressurized connectors exhibit low-loss characteristics and meet MIL-STD 202 Method 212, Condition D (+125°C fluorocarbon leak), test conditions. Connector seal integrity exceeds 10-5 cm3/s when tested under 30 psi pressure of alcohol per STI 8.2.4-13. Theproprietary insulator also offers five times more thermal stability than standard PTFE insulators found in other pressurized connectors.

San-tron pSeries pressurized connectors areavailable in a variety of different connector types, including 2.92 mm, 3.5 mm, SMA, TNC, and Type N series. For additional details on San-tron’s pressurized connectors, visit www.santron.com.
