Amphenol RF expands its reverse polarity SMA panel mount portfolio

Amphenol RF expanded its SMA product portfolio with additional reverse polarity bulkhead jacks. The bulkhead jacks are engineered to accommodate a variety of micro coax cable types including 0.081mm, 1.32mm, 1.37mm and RG-178 and are IP67 rated.

This makes them ideal for applications in demanding environments where the system may be exposed to weather-related elements: antennas, base stations and satellite systems. The RP-SMA rear mount bulkhead jacks are available in the straight configuration. They are constructed primarily with gold plated, brass while the contact is manufactured from gold plated, beryllium copper.

The contact is soldered to the cable centre conductor. The outer conductor works as an electromagnetic shield so the electrical signal transmitted on the centre conductor is less susceptible to electromagnetic waves. These RP-SMA interconnects join a robust product family that features a number of options for flexible micro-coaxial cables.

These products are suitable for devices which require the cables to be moved and routed within the device such as rotating cameras on drones. These connectors are also heavily used in the industrial automation and cellular space.
