Amphenol RF is pleased to expand its popular SMA product family with reverse polarity right-angle plug configurations designed to accommodate a variety of flexible micro-coax cable types. These right-angle RP-SMA connectors offer a more accessible and secure connection with the 90-degree shape. They feature a threaded coupling mechanism that is ideal for vibration resistance which may be a concern in industrial automation, cellular infrastructure and base stations.
RP-SMA connectors are engineered with all of the same features and benefits as the standard SMA interface. They are manufactured with gold-plated brass bodies, gold-plated, beryllium copper contacts and stainless steel retaining rings and offer excellent electrical performance up to 7 GHz. The right-angle geometry makes the connector and cable more compact and are well-suited for applications with space constraints. These RP-SMA plugs protect and improve the longevity of the cable from the effects of bending. The micro-coax cable types these connectors are designed to accommodate offer a high degree of flexibility and can stabilize the electrical characteristics even if bent, while providing good thermal resistance.
The RP-SMA right-angle plugs join a robust portfolio of standard reverse polarity products available currently from Amphenol RF. These compact connectors are a versatile RF interconnect that can be used across verticals for new and existing technologies.
