Field replaceable SMA connectors introduced

Intelliconnect, the UK based specialist manufacturer of RF connectors and cable assemblies, has announced the introduction of a range of cost effective, field replaceable SMA and 2.9mm connectors providing solderless attachment to 0.141" (RG402) semi rigid cables and 2.9mm connectors for 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables.

The main advantages of these connectors are assembly time saving, repeatability and performance. Intelliconnect’s newly developed unique clamping technology provides similar I/L and VSWR results to standard soldered connectors. No special tooling is required and cable retention force is similar to soldered versions.

These stainless steel SMA and 2.9mm connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high frequency performance are very important. Typical applications include civil and military telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, military equipment, space and measurement systems.

Roy Philips, managing Director of Intelliconnect, comments, “Our new SMA and 2.9mm clamp connector series offers our customers an exciting alternative for assembling SMA connectors to semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”

Intelliconnect is the largest UK based manufacturer of RF and waterproof connectors suitable for applications including wearable technology, medical, telecoms, satcoms, military, aerospace, space, general microwave communications, rail traction, oil and gas and marine. Intelliconnect also manufacture the Pisces range of waterproof RF connectors, coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change dust-caps and offer value added services.

Intelliconnect’s cable division are specialist manufacturers of affordable, high quality, high frequency microwave cables including triaxial assemblies, semi-rigid, semi-flexible and cryogenic cables as well as standard RG/LMR type products. Cables can be waterproofed to IP68 and include special features including phase matching and ruggedised assemblies for use in harsh environments and

The benefits of replacing plain old paper with e-paper displays in automotive assembly plants
Efficiency is at the heart of automation, and that is nowhere more apparent than in the manufacture of automobiles. The Ford Motor Company is widely credited with inventing the moving assembly line, but the concept of moving the assembly, rather than the worker, dates back centuries.
