Amphenol RF introduces anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies to their expanding SMA product family. The SMA connectors feature anti-torque bodies, which allow the user to hold the body with one wrench while simultaneously torqueing down the coupling nut to its mating connector with another. This helps to keep the entire assembly from twisting, thereby preventing damage to both the cable and the connector during installation.
The SMA connectors have a passivated stainless steel coupling nut over a gold-plated connector body. These connectors are available in straight plug configurations and are designed to terminate with 0.085" conformable cable and 0.141" conformable cable.
The anti-torque stainless steel SMA cable assemblies are available in straight-plug to straight-plug configurations with 0.085" or 0.141" diameter conformable semi-rigid cable. For applications requiring a more flexible cable, TFlex 405 by Amphenol Times Microwave is available. Cables are available in standard lengths of 0.25 m and 0.50 m.
Amphenol RF anti-torque stainless steel connectors and cable assemblies are designed to operate up to 18 GHz, making them ideal for high frequency applications.
