Amphenol RF, Danbury, Conn., has expanded its SMA quick-connect adapter line to include a right angle jack to plug configuration. Like the previously released straight version, this precision machined 50 ohm adapter allows for quick and easy mating with all existing threaded SMA jack and plug connectors.
The SMA quick-connect adapter easily converts any standard SMA plug test cable into a quick-connect cable without compromising the electrical integrity of the assembly. This adapter maintains the same high quality coupling that customers expect from a threaded interface. In addition, the unique push-turn thread on, pull off style of coupling used by this SMA adapter does not require any tooling for mating or unmating. This right angle adapter offers excellent electrical performance through 20 GHz and is constructed with a gold plated, brass body.
Utilizing this quick-connect adapter together with an existing SMA plug test cable reduces the time and effort involved in the testing process while at the same time extending the life expectancy of the test cable.
