Wireless/cellular connectivity

Efficient and service securing power transmission is a very important topic in today’s energy market. To achieve this, many controlling and measuring devices connected to a TCP/IP based network are required. Since these devices are often placed in locations where direct data cabling is not possible or expensive, a wireless connection is often the better choice.

Connection in this content can for example be a link to one of the widely available cellular networks (2G, 3G, 4G or 5G), to a proprietary Wi-Fi network, or to a LPWA (low-power wide-area) network.

Building such a connection with the requirement of high reliability, long life time and a minimum of required maintenance, increases requirements of the used antennas and passive components. Besides the electrical parameters (e.g. frequency bands), also other properties, as for example shock and vibration, or salt water resistance, must be considered.

Antenna cabling normally has a focus on easy installation, flexibility, low losses and fulfilling environmental requirements. The latter can include water tightness, oil-/ and radiation resistance. For protecting the active equipment, also lightning protectors are required in the transmission path.

HUBER+SUHNER provides a complete product portfolio of antennas, RF-coaxial cables, coaxial connectors and assemblies, and lightning protectors. The portfolio includes many industry specific products fulfilling the needs in the energy market.

QLA

QLA 00 series contains connectors with a quick latch coupling mechanism: connection is achieved by simply pushing the plug into the jack. Three latching springs automatically engage, thereby securing the mated connectors against axial forces. No twisting action is required. The connectors are easily released by slightly pulling back the outer sleeve of the plug. This coupling mechanism provides a fast and reliable connection for applications up to 1.4 GHz. All connectors of the series QLA 00 are without any restrictions intermateable with Lemo series 00.250.

Quick lock connectors

HUBER+SUHNER QMA and QN connectors have a quick-lock coupling mechanism. QMA and QN are easy to mate and allow a high packaging density because no tools are needed.

QMA

QMA

HUBER+SUHNER QMA coaxial connectors are in accordance with QLF standard and available with 50 ohm impedance. The frequency range extends to 18 GHz, depending on the connector and cable type. However most of the QMA connectors are return loss optimised for frequencies up to 6 GHz. The interface is based on the SMA dimension but instead of a threaded coupling mechanism a new snap-lock mechanism is used. The QMA interface has a very similar performance to the SMA, but in addition it offers an easier, faster and safer coupling operation, helping customers to save significantly time during production. The packaging density of QMA is increased compared to SMA connectors thanks to the fact that no torque spanner is required to fasten the coupling nut. QMA is not intermateable with SMA. QMA connectors are also available as waterproof version (IP68) and are compatible with QLF standard.

QMA eXtreme – XQMA

QMA eXtreme – XQMA

QMA eXtreme is the advanced version of the waterproof QMA, combining the quick-lock mechanism and waterproof properties also in rough environmental conditions. The coupling mechanism is completely waterproof and not only the RF signal path, thus protecting the connector from corrosion in a salty atmosphere and from freezing in case of high humidity and low temperature.

QN

QN

HUBER+SUHNER QN coaxial connectors are available with 50 ohm impedance. The frequency range extends to 11 GHz, depending on the connector and cable type, however most of the QN connectors are return loss optimised for frequencies up to 6 GHz. The interface is based on the inner dimensions of the N connector, but, instead of a threaded coupling mechanism, a snap-lock mechanism is used. The QN interface has a very similar performance to N, but in addition it offers an easier, faster and safe coupling operation, helping the customers to save significantly on time during production of their systems. The packaging density of QN increased compared to N thanks to the fact that no torque spanner is required to fasten the coupling nut. Additionally the outer dimensions of QN are smaller than N, leading to the advantage that even TNC-size flanges can be used at QN connectors.

QN eXtreme – XQN

QN eXtreme – XQN

Besides the outstanding characteristics of the quick-lock connector QN, this advanced version has some extra features. The coupling mechanism is completely waterproof and not only the RF signal path, thus protecting the complete connector from corrosion in a salty atmosphere and from freezing in case of high humidity and low temperatures. This extra features besides the excellent PIM performance (typical -162 dBc) and the optimum power performance (≈350 W by 2 GHz) makes this connector the ideal solution for antenna connections.

HUBER+SUHNER BNC 50 ohm features a two stud bayonet coupling mechanism, which is particularly useful for frequently coupled and uncoupled RF connections with frequencies up to 4 GHz.

Threaded connectors

HUBER+SUHNER TNC connectors are threaded RF connectors applicable from DC up to 11 GHz. 50 ohm TNC and 75 ohm TNC connectors are intermateable without restrictions.

TNC 50 Ω

TNC 50 Ω

HUBER+SUHNER TNC connectors are threaded RF connectors applicable from DC up to 11 GHz. The threaded coupling mechanism improves control over the interface dimensions and allows them to be used under a higher environmental load than BNC, especially under a high vibration load.

TNC 75 Ω

TNC 75 Ω

Within the internationally standardised TNC mating face dimensions a perfect 75 ohm characteristic impedance cannot be realised. However, at frequencies up to 1 GHz the small impedance deviation is negligible for practical applications. The threaded coupling mechanism allows them to be used under higher environmental load than BNC.
