Add Security And Flexibility To Wi-Fi Devices With New RP-SMA Jacks

Amphenol RF is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular SMA connector series with additional reverse polarity (RP) configurations. These RP-SMA jacks are compact and lightweight connectors that feature a high-strength design for use with various ultraminiature micro-coax cable types. RP-SMA front-mount bulkhead and crimp jacks are ideal for vibration resistance applications that require a less bulky, flexible solution such as Wi-Fi devices.

These RP-SMA jacks provide excellent electrical performance up to 6 GHz and feature the same secure threaded coupling mechanism as the standard SMA interface. They are manufactured with durable gold-plated, brass bodies and gold-plated, beryllium copper contacts. The straight crimp versions of this connector are designed with a larger back end which increases the compatibility options of other connectors that may be paired with them. While the additional bulkhead RP-SMA can be fastened on the inside of a panel or enclosure to provide extra security for sensitive systems.

RP-SMA connectors used with micro-coax cable types offer a high degree of flexibility which can stabilize the electrical characteristics even if bent. This interface is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of applications and conditions for broad design possibilities.
