Range of solderless SMA connectors expanded
Intelliconnect (Europe) has extended its award-winning range of solderless, field-replaceable connectors which provide solderless attachment to semi rigid cables to include .047” as well as its existing .085” and .0.141” cables.
This innovative clamp connector series offers customers an alternative for assembling connectors to semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability.
The stainless-steel 2.9mm and SMA 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.
The Intelliconnect solderless connector range has many key features including field replaceable capability, guaranteed equivalent performance to solder connection, no special tooling required, and cable retention force is similar to soldered versions.
System designers will find the main advantages of these solderless connectors are faster assembly time, repeatability and performance and they also provide field replaceable connectivity in the event of wear or damage to the connector.
Roy Philips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), said: “Our solderless connectors provide customers with a very useful alternative to conventional types 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.”
Intelliconnect (Europe) manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors and components, including waterproof and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. Intelliconnect also manufacture a large range of coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change etc.
In addition to custom cable assemblies Intelliconnect's cryogenic cables and components work to 2K (-271.15°C) and are ideally suited to a wide range of applications including test and measurement, instrumentation, medical and material research and cryogenic systems including dilution refrigerators, superconducting magnet systems, low temperature detector systems, infrared array systems.
Typical applications for Intelliconnect’s products include MIL and aerospace, medical, marine, oil and gas, and general microwave markets.
