San-tron Inc. announced the introduction of a new line of high performance, 2.92 mm field replaceable connectors.
San-tron’s new line of high performance, 2.92 mm field replaceable connectors are mode free and deliver low VSWR performance through 40 GH. Designed to deliver high performance and ruggedness, the 2.92 mm connectors are inter-mate able with SMA and 3.5 mm connectors. In addition to supporting much higher operating frequencies, the pin of the 2.92 mm male connector is shorter than a SMA or 3.5 mm male pin. This ensures that the bodies of the male and female connectors engage before the pin and socket contacts, mitigating wear from mating misalignment that can occur with SMA or 3.5 mm connectors.
The new 2.92 mm field replaceable connectors are available in 3/8 and 1/2-inch square, 2-hole .550” flange and 2-hole .625” flange configurations for 0.009”, 0.012” and 0.020” launch pin diameters. Other mounting options may be made available upon request. They feature high performance gold plated beryllium copper contacts, polyetherimide capture bead, Polychlorotrifluoroethylene positioning bead and rugged stainless steel bodies. They fully comply with MIL-STD-348.
