Amphenol RF, Danbury, Conn., now offers the SMA Quick-Connect adapter, a straight jack to straight plug configuration, as part of its broad portfolio of coaxial adapters. This precision machined 50 ohm adapter allows for quick and easy mating with all existing threaded SMA jack and plug connectors.
The SMA Quick-Connect adapter easily converts any standard SMA Plug test cable into a Quick-Connect cable without compromising the electrical integrity of the assembly. This adapter maintains the same high-quality coupling that customers expect from a threaded interface. In addition, the unique push-turn thread on, pull-off style of coupling used by this SMA adapter does not require any tooling for mating or unmating.
Utilizing this Quick-Connect adapter together with an existing SMA Plug test cable reduces the time and effort involved in the testing process while at the same time extending the life expectancy of the test cable.
