Amphenol RF announced the expansion of the HD-BNC product series with two new cable connectors. These connectors are specifically designed to connect to the Times Microwave LMR-195-UF cable type, which is designed to be an ultra-flexible low-loss cable option. New configurations include a version of this connector with a straight plug and jack for mounting a barrier, which offer additional flexibility over existing HD-BNC products and are ideal for a variety of commercial, industrial and military applications.
The new HD-BNC connector options use the familiar bayonet interface and provide reliable performance up to 6 GHz. The housings are made of nickel-plated brass with PTFE, used for the insulating components. The interface contacts are made of gold-plated phosphor bronze and beryllium copper to ensure electrical performance.
The straight plug and barrier mount jack join a wide portfolio of HD-BNC products, which includes IP67 and 12G SDI connectors, adapters and cable assemblies. This interface is a compact version of the popular BNC connector, which offers all the same features and benefits with four times less footprint.
