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.
