RF Connectors’ 7-16 DIN Adapter Kit Ideal for Trouble-shooting

June 25, 2008

Technicians in the cellular, PCS, GPS and digital communications fields are finding more requirements for 7-16 DIN adapters. For cellular communications, the 7-16 DIN offers technical advantages over the N or SMA connector interfaces. Capable of carrying high power at high frequencies, RF Connectors' 7-16 DINs are larger, more precise, offering more stable electrical and mechanical connections with tighter tolerances and improved VSWR performance.


The RFA-4013 adapter kit offers a convenient means to bridge type N devices to 7-16 DIN interfaces on the test-bench and in the field.

This foam lined, zippered kit contains six adapters: RFD-1652-2 (7-16 DIN Male to 7-16 DIN Female R/A adapter); RFD-1653-2 (7-16 DIN Female to 7-16 DIN Female barrel adapter); RFD-1670-2 (7-16 DIN Male to N Male adapter); RFD-1671-2 (7-16 DIN Male to N Female adapter); RFD-1672-2 (7-16 DIN Female to N Male adapter); and RFD-1673-2 (7-16 DIN Female to N Female adapter). All are made of machined brass and feature Teflon® insulation and silver-plated contacts and bodies for minimal intermodulation generation.
