Non-magnetic RF Coaxial Connectors

Generally speaking microwave and RF connectors tend to be viewed as simple, uncomplicated components. What is often overlooked, however, is that there are special applications requiring special connectors that have specific properties and characteristics. A prime example is Radiall’s range of non-magnetic RF coaxial connectors that have applications primarily...
