Intelliconnect introduces field replaceable SMA connectors
Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd. has introduced a range of cost effective, field replaceable SMA and 2.9 mm connectors providing solderless attachment to 0.141" (RG402) semi rigid cables and 2.9 mm connectors for 0.085" (RG405) and 0.141" cables. Customers will find the main advantages of these connectors are assembly time saving, repeatability and performance.
Intelliconnect’s newly developed clamping technology 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 SMA and 2.9 mm connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high frequency performance are very important. Typical applications include civil and military telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, military equipment, space and measurement systems.
Roy Philips, managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), commented, “Our new SMA and 2.9 mm clamp connector series offers our customers an exciting alternative for assembling SMA connectors to semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”
