Coaxicom features RF Adapters made with quality materials by a team of expert engineers and machinists


There are many, many reasons why RF Adapters are a necessity… some are anticipated and even planned for…while others well… come as a surprise. And it can be exasperating and expensive to be stalled on a project as you hunt for a very specific connector that may…or may not even exist. This is of particular issue when you’re dealing with multiple cables with differing inputs and outputs.

For instance manufacturing and engineering test facilities are continually required to provide connections between the many coaxial series in use. This is certainly true today, where long established connector series (N, TNC, BNC, SMA) must be mated with less common or later interfaces (3.5 mm, 2.9 mm, 2.4 mm, 7/16, SSMA, SSMB, SSMC, MCX, MMCX, 7 mm, etc).

Other reasons to use an adapter can be to:

  • Reduce wear on an expensive or difficult to replace connector
  • Change the connector interface
  • Upgrade an existing adapter with a higher-performing version for improved reliability

Coaxicom understands the ramifications of job delays which is why Coaxicom maintains a large inventory of common and not-so-common inter and intra series adapters. These highly-capable adapters can deliver up to 40 GHz with a lower VSWR than other supplier’s designs and are suitable for use in most advanced testing demands. Available plating finishes vary but include: gold, nickel, silver, and passivated.
