Amphenol RF, Danbury, Conn., has introduced a line of SMA fixed-length cable assemblies on LMR-195 and LMR-240 cables. According to the company, this all-Amphenol system combines precision machined Amphenol RF SMA connectors with high performing LMR cables developed by Times Microwave, an Amphenol company. These pre-configured cable assemblies are designed to offer a lower loss option with superior electrical performance to standard cables.
The LMR Cable Assemblies operate between dc to 6 GHz and are suited for wireless communications systems and high-performing applications such as base stations, antennas, and other telecommunication devices. The cable is constructed with a black polyethylene jacket, closed cell foam poly dielectric, and bonded tape conductor. All of these components work together to make the LMR cable more rugged compared to other braided cables. The 50 Ohm SMA connectors feature brass construction with gold plating.
These new assemblies are available in straight plug to straight plug, straight plug to right-angle plug, straight plug to bulkhead jack and right-angle to right-angle plug configurations. They come in standard imperial lengths of 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, and 48 in., along with metric lengths of 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, and 1 meter. Custom lengths are available upon request.
Amphenol RF manufactures coaxial connectors for use in radio frequency, microwave, and data transmission system applications. Standard products include RF connectors, coaxial adapters and RF cable assemblies. Custom engineered products include multi-port ganged interconnect, blind mate and hybrid mixed-signal solutions.
