A range of cost effective 2.9mm connectors have been announced by Intelliconnect Europe that provide solderless attachment to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables. System designers will find the main advantages of these connectors are faster assembly time, repeatability and performance and they also provide field replaceable connectivity.
Intelliconnect’s newly developed unique 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 2.9mm 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 2.9mm clamp connector series offers our customers an exciting alternative for assembling connectors to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly speeds manufacture and facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”
Cables can be waterproofed to IP68 and include special features including phase matching and ruggedised assemblies for use in harsh environments.
