Radiall Waterproof RF Connectors

Radiall Waterproof RF Connectors

Radiall Waterproof RF Connectors

Waterproof connectors are designed with specific sealing O-rings to prevent water ingress. They are suitable for use in outdoor and harsh environments, including, wireless telecom antennas, radio equipment, tactical radios and outdoor sensors. Waterproof connectors are sometimes referred to as watertight and are available in 2 main categories: panel sealed only and totally sealed.

They are available in many different interface types with the most popular being, TNC and SMA type. View our in-depth article on the Radiall Waterproof RF Connector line.


Radiall RF Test Probes and Adapters

Radiall RF Test Probes and Adapters

Radiall RF Test Probes and Adapters

Adapters are used to make reliable transitions from one connector interface to another. They are typically used for test and measurement, between equipment mounted connectors and devices under test. Adapters are available in-series and between series. Push-on versions are also available with slide-on interface instead of screw-on allowing significant time-saving.

RF test probes are spring-loaded coaxial adapters designed to allow automatic testing of RF ports in production. They provide increased test speed, higher test coverage and maximum through-put.


Radiall RF Switching Connectors

Radiall RF Switching Connectors

Radiall RF Switching Connectors

RF switching connectors are PCB mount receptacles or adapters with a built-in mechanical switch function. This “two in one” solution provides a unique means of switching between two RF signal paths, typically between an internal and external antenna.

The switch is activated by mating and unmating a standard plug to the switching connector. The features help to increase the density on the PCB boards by reducing the number of components, which significantly reduces the cost of ownership.

Several series include PCB connectors with a switch function, from micro-miniature to medium power series.


Radiall Space Coaxial Connectors

Radiall’s space offering includes a wide range of coaxial connectors with a frequency range up to Ka-band. This includes, SMA and SMA 2.9 connectors that are ESA qualified, TNC, SMP and SMP-LOCK connectors which are EPPL classified, as well as SSMA and 2.4mm connectors.


Radiall Snap-On Connectors

Radiall Snap-On Connectors

Radiall Snap-On Connectors

Connectors featuring a “Snap-on” coupling mechanism are easily connected with a straight push and unmated with a straight pull. They are well suited for connections in limited spaces or dense environment.

Radiall offers a broad range of standard and proprietary Snap-on series. The most popular Snap-on interfaces being, SMB and MCX. A main benefit of Snap-on connectors, is they allow 360-degree rotation, making it easy to connect and orientate a right angle plug to a receptacle. However, Snap-on connectors can be accidentally unmated by pulling on the cable or connector, which can be seen as a weakness.

Snap-on interfaces are sometimes also proposed as “Slide-on” types. To connect, simply push the male and female connectors together and mating is maintained by spring-finger friction. Slide-on versions are useful when connectors must be mated and unmated frequently, this is the case for test and evaluation.


Radiall Screw-On Connectors

Radiall Screw-On Connectors

Radiall Screw-On Connectors

Screw-On connectors provide a robust connection with high electrical performance. They are typically longer to install compared to Quick-Lock types and do not allow high-density connections.

They are preferred for test and measurement applications at very high frequency up to 67 GHz, but are also used in many applications from telecom to military.
Most Screw-On series require a wrench tool to apply the right torque.
