Innovative Adjustable RF Connector Resolves Cable Assembly Phase Shifting

Comments off 3862 Views0

To rectify problematic cable assembly phasing, telecommunications companies have had to continually search for ways to modify existing components to improve efficiency and match time phasing. In order to develop a seamless conversion, electrical engineers have been challenged to modify cable lengths and phase lengths to achieve the desired results, often by trial and error. Now, Florida-based Coaxial Components Corp., has created an innovative solution to overcome these obstacles by providing a technologically-advanced phase adjustable connector that was long overdue.

The Coaxicom 3993 series of Phase Adjusters are designed to deliver a means of phase adjustment over frequency ranges up to 18 GHz. The 3993-1 SMA RF Phase Adjustable Adapter has an adjustment range of 180⁰ minimum and a maximum VSWR, with insertion loss of 1.30:1 and 0.42 dB, respectively. The company also offers two other variations in response to industry needs. The 3993-2 and the 3993-3 are phase adjustable connectors with SMA plugs for direct solder to 0.141” and 0.086” semi-rigid cable or COAXICOM ULTRA-FLEX, respectively.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————
Coaxicom offers a broad, varied inventory all made in the US and includes connectors, adapters, adjuster, terminations, attenuators, dust caps, cable assemblies with a spectrum of services that rival many of the larger brands.

SSMA and SMA RF Connectors – Center Contact Retention

Comments off 6061 Views5

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 a woman-owned small business and ISO 9001:2015 / AS9100D certified 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)

A New Approach to Manufacturing

Comments off 2053 Views0

As the New Year begins, and Coaxial Components Corp. (also known as Coaxicom) heads into its 33rd year of manufacturing quality microwave and RF connectors, Operations Manager, Julian Andrews once again leads the way by recognizing that manufacturers today must now do more than just provide “off-the-shelf” products at a cut-rate cost. “At Coaxicom we have always prided ourselves on service and understood that at the heart of all business is a relationship” says Andrews.  The simplest can be summed up in four words: someone sells, someone buys. And while it is true cost is certainly a consideration… do companies always buy based price?  The answer is no. That is why Andrews is proud to announce Coaxicom Concierge, a 360 and more personal approach to manufacturing that strives for complete customer satisfaction. It is the service offerings that create the true value for customers. Andrews continues, “it’s not always about having the cheapest, but rather the best solutions and building a partnership with customers that lasts for years”. This philosophy is not new at this boutique manufacturer located in Stuart, Florida but rather a renewed pledge in a time of increased anonymity and apathy within the world of manufacturing. Other companies may be larger but Coaxicom makes the customer the top priority and can simply get things done on time and within budget—hassle free. This type of commitment leads to increased efficiencies which ultimately results in significant savings-in both time and money.  Andrews concludes, “we balance high-tech with high touch” and for Coaxicom that means knowing what our customers want and finding quick, innovative ways to deliver it with professionalism, respect and moreover appreciation.

What makes the Coaxicom approach so different:

·         Personalized service by customer support you can reach.

·         Small/low volume quantity orders always welcome

·         Specialists in obsolete, rare, hard-to-find parts

·         Flexible delivery including warehousing and auto delivery

·         Many orders can ship within 24-48 hours

·         Access to engineering experts

·         Easy-to-use cross reference tools

·         Thousands of piece parts ready for assembly
