Field replaceable RF connectors from Pasternack include SMA, 3.5 mm, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm and 1.85 mm types with 2-hole and 4-hole mounting configurations. Each connector utilizes a metal ring that grounds or mates with the component ground and will work with a range of different pin sizes.
These types of connectors can be used on various sealed RF components as replaceable RF interconnects where the component has a pin exposed. The connector is attached to the wall of the component with screws and accepts the interface pin. To accommodate a wide range of RF components, several configurations of flange sizes and pin sizes are offered off-the-shelf.
"Our new field replaceable connectors are perfect for changing interface types on a variety of RF components used in a wide range of applications. These versatile connectors were designed to address applications where durability, reliability and high frequency performance are required," said Steve Ellis, RF Interconnect Product Manager.
