Radiall Coaxial Connectors for Space

Radiall offers a comprehensive range of coaxial interconnect solutions for space.

From lower power attenuators to high power terminations, we have the expertise and capability to design end-to-end solutions for your applications. Learn about some of their products offered by Air Electro below.

Coaxial Connectors

Radial offers a wide range of 50 ohms coaxial connectors with a frequency range up to Q band. Their TNC line provides higher performance with a screw-on concept, as well as high power versions up to 8 GHz and a high-frequency version up to 18 GHz.

The Radiall SMP microminiature interface is ideal for high-frequency applications with great misalignment tolerances. The SMP-LOCK is fully compatible with the SMP interface and offers a secure connection, thanks to its robust locking system. We also offer male and female 2.4 mm interfaces with adapters up to 50 GHz.


SMA

Radiall stainless steel SMA connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness, and high frequency are critical.

WIDE RANGE

The stainless steel SMA range offers cable connectors for both flexible or semi-rigid cables, panel and PCB mount receptacles, press mount, microstrip, universal, through-hole pins, and end launch connectors. In series adapters and between series adapters including PUSH-ON interface are also available.

All Radiall stainless steel SMA connectors can be mated with Radiall commercial (brass) SMA connectors.

CONVENIENT 3-PIECE DESIGN ON MOST CONNECTORS FOR FLEXIBLE CABLES
  • For straight models: single-piece body + center contact + outer ferrule
  • For right-angle models: single-piece body + cap + outer ferrule
FAST AND RELIABLE CABLE ATTACHMENT

The cable connectors can be either fully crimped or soldered/crimped, offering full flexibility for high volume production with standard manual or pneumatic tooling: fast and reliable.

  • The center contact can be either crimped or soldered
  • The outer contact is attached to the cable by crimping a ferrule
SIMPLE SNAP-IN CENTER CONTACT CAPTIVATION (FOR FULL CRIMP MODELS)

The relative position of the center contact into the interface is mechanically guaranteed by the snapping of the insulator inner shoulder into the groove of the center contact. This design facilitates the captivation operation in contrast of other designs, requiring 2 insulators to provide contact retention.

EXTENDED FREQUENCY SMA DC-27 GHz

Radiall offers an extended frequency SMA range allowing coaxial system operation up to 27 GHz. This series mates with the standard SMA series and maintains the same mechanical characteristics (part numbers ending with 700, 701 or 702).

SOLDERLESS ATTACHMENT TO SEMI-RIGID CABLE

Radiall’s SMA crimp connector series offers an exciting alternative for assembling SMA connectors to semi-rigid cable. The main advantages of these connectors are time savings, repeatability, and performance.


TNC

Radiall TNC connector series part numbers start with the R143 and R144 prefixes

GENERAL

  • Screw-on equivalent to BNC bayonet series
  • Good RF performance
  • Suitable for high power levels
  • Long life and high strength
  • 4 ranges:
    • – Standard TNC series (50 and 75Ω fully intermateable)
    • Commercial TNC series (50 and 75Ω)
    • 18 GHz TNC series (50Ω)
    • TNC selflock series 50 ohms

APPLICABLE STANDARDS

  • MIL-C-39012 / MIL-STD 348A/313
  • IEC 60169-17
  • CECC 22200

APPLICATIONS

  • Avionics
  • Aeronautics
  • Countermeasures
  • Telecommunications
TNC Self-lock, the latest addition to the TNC range

TNC Self-lock plugs are designed for civil aerospace applications. They are qualified for use in harsh and high-vibration environments. Their specific anti-rotation coupling nut eliminates the need for a safety lock wire, which results in significant time savings during installation onboard the aircraft. They are fully compatible with all standard TNC receptacles and adapters.


SMP

Radiall SMP connector series part numbers start with the R222 prefix

Radiall SMP series meets MIL-STD 348, figure 326 interface standard, and DESC specifications 94007 & 94008. They are intermateable with GPO® (Gilbert Engineering Inc.).

There are 3 levels of retention (applicable to the male connectors when ordering) which provide different levels of force required to connect and disconnect the connectors:

  • Full detent for positive locking with a maximum retention
  • Limited detent for positive locking with a medium retention
  • Smoothbore for the lowest retention (slide connection)

Radiall also offers multiport solutions with SMP interface allowing better alignment control while mating multiple connectors. The multiport concept increases density and allows the operator to save installation time by connecting several SMP connectors in one operation.

GENERAL

  • Small, lightweight connectors
  • Snap-in, suitable for blindmate applications
  • Excellent vibration and shock performance

APPLICATIONS

  • Active array antenna
  • Satellite • Airborne / Ship / Ground radar
  • Communication equipment
  • High-speed electro-optical devices
  • Board to board applications
