Amphenol RF introduced its new 2.2/5 connector series. This interface is a compact version of the previously released 4.3/10 connector series with a footprint that is 53% smaller. This connector series is lightweight and can accommodate thick, low loss cables up to a half inch. The robust design makes these connectors ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.
The 2.2/5 connector series is designed the meet the needs of applications which require low PIM to avoid interference in network quality during high-speed data transmission. These connectors offer flexibility in installation with the ability to blind mate and are IP-68 rated in the mated condition. This allows for prolonged exposure to the elements without compromising the performance.
2.2/5 connectors are precision machined with a brass body and a beryllium copper contact. They are ideal for wireless applications such as small cells, mobile networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), low power base stations and in-building architecture, and are critical to 5G communication technology.
