Intelliconnect, the specialist manufacturer of RF and waterproof connectors and cable assemblies will be exhibiting at the 2018 IEEE/MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2018) being held in Philadelphia in June.

Of special note to visitors to Booth 2152 will be Intelliconnect’s newly developed solderless 2.9 mm connectors. Featuring, what is claimed to be, unique clamping technology providing solderless attachment to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables the connector 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 2.9 mm connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high frequency performance are very important. System designers will find the main advantages of these connectors are faster assembly time, repeatability and performance and they also provide field replaceable connectivity.

Also on display will be the Pisces range of IP67 and IP68 waterproof RF connectors, including the corrosion-proof version manufactured from a nickel aluminum bronze alloy.

In addition to its wide standard connector range and custom design and manufacturing capabilities the company will be showing its cable assembly capabilities, which now include cryogenic versions for research, test and measurement and advanced IT systems.

Roy Philips, managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), commented, “We are pleased to be exhibiting at IMS2018 and looking forward to showing visitors our wide range of standard connectors, custom design capabilities, cable assembly capabilities and the opportunity to meet our UK and USA design and sales teams.”
