Precision connectors (PC 1.85, PC 3.5, SK, SMA)

HUBER+SUHNER connector series SMA, PC 1.85, PC 3.5 and SK are used in a wide range of applications where high performance is required. 

PC 1.85

PC 1.85

HUBER+SUHNER PC 1.85 connectors are precision connectors for use in microwave applications up to 65 GHz. The connectors features best electrical performance, excellent mechanical stability as well as extreme reliability. They are particularly well suited for semi-rigid, semi-flexible and flexible microwave cables. PC 1.85 is intermateable with PC 2.4.

SK (2.92 mm standard)

SK (2.92 mm standard)

HUBER+SUHNER SK connectors are precision connectors for microwave applications up to 40 GHz. They are intermateable with series SMA and PC 3.5. They have a high mechanical stability and an excellent repeatability. The shortened male pin ensures a non-destructive mating process. The glass beads, when used in conjunction with the SK launchers, enable the connectors to be replaced without disturbing the hermetic seal. For a mechanical decoupling between glass bead and internal microwave circuit, stress relief contacts are available.

PC 3.5

PC 3.5

HUBER+SUHNER PC 3.5 connectors are precision connectors for use in microwave applications up to 26.5 GHz. They are especially suitable for use with semi-rigid cables and microwave components. They are intermateable with SMA and SK (2.92 mm) connectors. Due to an air dielectric interface and the more durable construction a superior repeatability further enhances the performance.

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.

Quick-lock connectors (QMA, QN)

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.

Mid size connectors (4.3-10, C, N, UHF)

HUBER+SUHNER connector series 4.3-10, N, UHF and C are mainly used for connections with a cable assembly to a panel. The different connector series offer a wide range of products suitable for various applications (indoor and outdoor).

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.

4.3-10 Plus

4.3-10 Plus

The 4.3-10 Plus interface is for applications which carry risk of a Mini Din/4.1-9.5 male connector accidently mating with a 4.3-10 female interface. 4.3-10 Plus interface is based on the standard IEC 4.3-10 specification but with a slight modification of dielectric inside the outer conductor which makes the 4.3-10 Plus interface more robust and fully prevents the male Mini Din/ 4.1-9.5 connector from entering and damaging the 4.3-10 female. The 4.3-10 Plus female connectors are fully compatible with all standard 4.3-10 male connectors.

C

C

HUBER+SUHNER C connectors are medium size RF connectors with two-stud bayonet mechanism which allows quick and easy coupling and decoupling. The C connectors provide 50 ohm impedance and the frequency range (connector interface) is specified for applications up to 11 GHz.

N 50 Ω / N 75 Ω

N 50 Ω / N 75 Ω

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.
