Solderless 2.9mm and SMA connectors announced

Intelliconnect (Europe) has extended its range of 2.9mm and SMA connectors with the addition of a solderless version offering users a useful combination of faster assembly time and field-replaceable connectivity

SMA semi-precision coaxial RF connectors from Intelliconnect provide a minimal connector interface for coaxial cable with a screw-type coupling mechanism. The connectors have a 50 Ω impedance and are designed for use from DC (0 Hz) to 18 GHz. Popular applications include microwave systems, hand-held radio and mobile telephone antennas, and more recently with Wi-Fi antenna systems and USB software-defined radio dongles. They are also commonly used in radio astronomy, particularly at the higher frequencies (5 GHz+).

The Essex based manufacturer and supplier offers a standard range of bulkhead and panel mount connectors, including a waterproof version and right-angle adapters. The arrival of its award-winning range of solderless, field-replaceable connectors which provide solderless attachment to semi rigid cables including .047”.085” and 0.141” types  extends the company’s product range and  also opens up new application areas including medical, defence, space, industrial and cryogenics. Cryogenic electronics is, says Intelliconnect, a fast-growing, cutting-edge market which includes quantum computing, medical and research applications.   

Intelliconnect’s stainless-steel solderless 2.9mm and SMA connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability and high-frequency performance are key design considerations. Notable features highlighted by the company include faster assembly time,  high repeatability, guaranteed equivalent performance to solder connection, no special tooling required, a cable retention force similar to soldered versions and field replaceable connectivity in the event of wear or damage to the connector.

Roy Philips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe) comments, “SMA connectors have a very wide range of applications and our new solderless connectors provides customers with a very useful alternative to conventional types for assembling connectors to 0.085"(RG405) and 0.141" cables with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly speeds manufacture and facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”

Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors and components, including waterproof and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. The business also manufactures a large range of coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change. In addition to conventional custom cable assemblies, Intelliconnect's cryogenic cables and components work to 2 K (-271.15°C) and are said to be well suited to a wide range of applications including quantum computing, test and measurement, instrumentation, medical and material research and cryogenic systems including dilution refrigerators, superconducting magnet systems, low temperature detector systems, infrared array systems.
