Amphenol RF has introduced the latest expansion of its 12G product line designed specifically for 4K/Ultra-HD broadcast applications. This expansion features additional adapter configurations and cable mount connectors for Canare L-5.5CUHD and Belden 4694P, 4731R, and 4731P cables.
The most recent additions to the 12G adapter line include both in-series and between-series configurations: BNC plug to BNC plug, HD-BNC Jack to HD-BNC Jack and HD-BNC Plug to HD-BNC Plug. Each adapter operates at 75 ohm with a maximum frequency of 18 GHz. These adapters are precision machined with brass bodies and gold plated brass or beryllium copper contacts.
Cable mount connectors designed for use with Canare L-5.5CUHD and optimized for 12G SDI applications are also available. These connectors are available in both BNC and HD-BNC options that offer excellent electrical performance through 12 and 18 GHz, respectively.
In addition, Amphenol RF has expanded its 12G offerings on Belden cables to include BNC and HD-BNC configurations designed for 4694P, 4731R and 4731P cables. Like their Canare counterparts, they operate at 75 ohms with maximum frequencies of 12 and 18 GHz, respectively.
These adapters and RF cable-mount connectors join what is already the broadest portfolio of 12G optimized products on the market currently.
