Amphenol RF releases new line of 18 GHz N-Type connector series

21 May 2019

Amphenol RF has released a line of 18 GHz N-Type connectors, which it claims is ideal for more rugged, outdoor applications that require low PIM performance.

The firm says the latest N-Type connectors are designed to reach an extended frequency range of 18 GHz, they feature the familiar threaded coupling mechanism and provide engineers with a durable, weatherproof interconnect solution with excellent low PIM performance.

Amphenol also waxes lyrical about the “greater design opportunities” with a robust and familiar interface.

The higher frequency and single body construction make this connector appropriate for applications that require durability and faster data transfer rates, the company says.

Additional features include low VSWR and insertion loss, high power handling and ruggedized construction.

These interconnects are fully interchangeable with N-Type connectors made to the MIL-C-39012 specification. They are said to be ideal for use in systems where reliable RF and mechanical performance is critical such as wireless infrastructure, military and industrial applications.
