4.3/10

4.3/10

HUBER+SUHNER 4.3-10 connectors offer very low PIM performance together with weight and compactness advantages. A key feature of this connector is the separation of the electrical and mechanical plane, which results in a lower coupling torque and the possiblility of offering the connector with screw, hand-screw and quick-lock design, thus simplifying the installation effort and offering for all mechanisms a very high and reliable electrical performance independently from the torque applied.

7/16

7/16

HUBER+SUHNER 7/16 connectors are mechanically very rugged coaxial connectors with screw lock. They have a characteristic impedance of 50 ohm and are applicable with excellent electrical properties up to 7.5 GHz.

HUBER+SUHNER N connectors are available with 50 ohm and 75 ohm impedance. The frequency range extends to 18 GHz, depending on the connector and cable type. The screw-type coupling mechanism provides a sturdy and reliable connection. HUBER+SUHNER N connectors are available for flexible cables, for semi-rigid cables and for corrugated copper tube cables. Cable entries: clamp, crimp and solder types available, as well as HUBER+SUHNER Quick-Fit for corrugated copper tube cables.

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.

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.

SMA

SMA

HUBER+SUHNER SMA connectors are precision connectors for microwave applications up to 18 GHz. The extended frequency version operates with excellent return loss performances up to 26.5 GHz. There is a huge variety of applications for SMA connectors, as in telecom, test and measurement, instruments, avionics, etc. SMA is classified into the two categories HUBER+SUHNER standard SMA connectors for high-end applications or applications subject to rough conditions and HUBER+SUHNER ECO SMA connectors for high volume.

Corrugated radio frequency cable assemblies
