The Cable Assembly of your Dreams!

No Comments 13892 Views0

Maybe saying “Cable Assembly of your dreams” is a little silly, but when you think about everything you go through to get the right cable, it can be a huge pain in the neck. You go to a website and they have the cable type you are looking for, but available in only half the length you want. So you buy a coupler and two cables. Instead of purchasing one item, you now have 3, which is something else you didn’t want to do.

What if you go to the website and they don’t have the cable you are looking for at all and you need to buy various adapters? All you are doing is affecting the performance of an overpriced and shoddily made cable!

Thankfully, you can now build your own cable assembly with Coaxicom! The cable assembly available on the Coaxicom site is the most advanced on the internet! Get the exact cable you want, in the length you want with the connectors you want. With a custom made cable assembly, there will no longer be testing multiple cables, adapting, coupling or jumping through various hoops like you may have in the past!

Get a Quality Cable Assembly, Made in the U.S.A.

For years, people have been choosing inexpensive Imported connectors for their components. Though saving money comes at a price and folks have realized the cash they are saving now comes with consequences down the road. Cheaply made parts not only run the risk of breaking down easily, but the quality of the products affects how they operate as well. Noise, fuzz and interference are much more prevalent in a cable assembly that was made overseas. When lower grade copper, bad insulation and poor manufacturing practices are combined, you get a bad product.

The money that you wind up saving just goes towards the replacement of the cable a few months or a year down the road. When you choose a cable assembly that was made in the U.S.A. however, you not only get the peace of mind of getting customer service you can understand, direct from the manufacturer, but you are also getting a much higher quality cable assembly made by trained professionals.

Not only are you helping a company by buying American, you are also getting the best cables you can get! When you purchase a cable assembly from Coaxicom, you are investing in the future of your devices. By not having the noise and by having the extra durability, you will be extremely happy with the performance of the cable as well as its longevity.

Don’t skimp on the cables! Get a custom cable assembly from Coaxicom today!

Right-Angle Bend (RAB) Assembly 3221-1-“L” Outperforms SMA Right Angle Connector

Comments off 1368 Views0

Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) – STUART, FLORIDA –  There is little doubt that electrical components in today’s high-tech industries are getting smaller and smaller.  Retrofitting RF connectors to meet increasing frequency requirements often presents a challenge utilizing the standard SMA series.  As a result of the increased demand for better electrical performance, Coaxicom employed design innovation to resolve the conflict between size and frequency.

Typical mitred Right-angle SMA cable connectors cause significant reduction of electrical performance in cable assemblies, particularly at higher frequencies.  Coaxicom’s Right-Angle Bend (RAB) Assembly provides an alternative to the standard right angle SMA coaxial connector with a low-profile device, delivering increased electrical performance at higher frequencies.  The 3221-1-L series of pre-bent right angle assemblies use the center conductor of .141″ semi-rigid cable as the contact.  “L” represents the overall length of the RAB.  This fact, combined with Coaxicom’s ultra-short SMA male, provides the same or a smaller profile than a right-angle connector, but without the performance penalty.

Typical VSWR of these assemblies is 1.10 to 18 GHz, while a similar assembly using a conventional right angle connector is typically 1.30.  An SMA male to SMA male swept radius cable assembly has a typical VSWR of 1.17 at 18GHz.   User specified lengths to 60” are available.  RAB assemblies also provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters.  RAB assemblies and adapters using other connectors and cables are also available.

Coaxial Components Co3221rp is a Florida-based manufacturer and supplier of RF Connectors, attenuators, terminations, adapters and cable assemblies.  The company serves customers in the telecommunications, aerospace, industrial, energy, transportation and military sectors.  All Coaxicom connectors conform to MIL-PRF-39012 and interface dimensions per MIL-STD-348 or industry standards.  For more information or to order a product catalog, visit www.Coaxicom.com or call 866-Coaxicom or email direct at Sales@Coaxicom.com.

RF Connectors and Center Contact Retention

Comments off 3636 Views3

Most RF connectors require some form of internal component captivation to ensure proper mechanical integrity. The design must strike a balance with electrical performance which can be difficult to achieve with higher frequency connectors.

Epoxy and mechanical are common methods of captivation that are governed by military and industry specifications. SMA series connectors cover a wide range of captivation methods and are high frequency, average in size and very popular in the RF/microwave industry. SMA specifications per M39012 is 6 pounds axial (direct force in pounds) and 4 inch-ounces radial (torque). All SMA’s have an axial requirement but many do not have a radial. Other RF connector series have similar specifications.

 

EpoxyEpoxy  

Mainly for receptacles with tabs, slots, blunt posts and solder cups that are soldered onto a PC board. Epoxy is the preferred method when any axial or rotational movement of the center contact may break the PCB solder joint. Silver epoxy fill will improve RF leakage.

Axial – 6 lbs | Radial – 4 inch-ounces

VSWR: Very Good | RF Leakage: -60 dB

 

 

MechMechanical

Adapters, Field Replaceables and similar designs where radial movement is allowed. These connectors do not have a soldering requirement of the center contact. There are many variations of barb captivation and epoxy is sometimes used.

Axial: 6 lbs | Radial: None

VSWR: Good | RF Leakage: -75 to -100 dB

 


knurlMechanical (Barb/Knurl)

For applications that require radial captivation and low cost. This design, along with other types of enhanced mechanical captivation such as staked and special barbs have poor VSWR performance due to the excessive capacitance introduced.

Axial – 6 lbs | Radial – 4 inch-ounces

VSWR – Average to Poor | RF Leakage: -75 to -100 dB

 

 


shoulderCable Connectors

In most cases, the cable center conductor will support the soldered connector’s center contact. Small connectors and cable commonly use a shoulder design that butts two insulators against the center contact. Epoxy may be used on assemblies with very small cable. Mainly used in low frequency applications.

 

 

Other areas of captivation include “snap-in” contacts called out in some MIL specifications and precision (metrology grade) connectors that use a noryl-PPO tm or rexolite bead to support and captivate an airline.

Choosing a company that is committed to the performance you expect is critical in any successful RF coaxial endeavor. Coaxicom is known for excellent performance standards and stand behind our products with exceptional quality and customer service.

Coaxial Components Corp. is an ISO 9001:2008 / AS9100C registered manufacturing facility that ships same day from a broad inventory of microwave and RF products. www.coaxicom.com, sales@coaxicom.com, 866-COAXICOM (866-262-9426)
