Leading supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, Fairview Microwave has introduced a comprehensive line of IP67 RF adapters recommended for the DAS, cellular, aviation and military industries due to their ingress protection from water and dust.
The IP67 rating of Fairview Microwave’s new RF adapters offers the assurance of advanced ingress protection, making them virtually impenetrable to contaminants such as dust, sand, and water. The latest release comprises of in-series adapters including 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type-N and TNC, while between-series versions include 7/16 DIN to 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, 7/16 DIN to Type-N and 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to Type-N.
Fairview Microwave’s new RF adapters are compatible with all like-series connectors, cables and passive and active components. Each adapter operates to 6 GHz with excellent VSWR of 1.15:1 to 1:25:1 depending on the connector type.
Fairview’s ingress protected RF adapters come in two different versions: Mated and Unmated. Mated adapters meet the requirements of IP67 only when both ends of the adapter are terminated in mating connectors; Unmated adapters meet the requirements of IP67 even when one or both ends of the adapter are unterminated.
According to Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager at Fairview Microwave, ingress protection against dust and water is imperative in outdoor RF communications installations. Fairview Microwave’s new line of IP67 adapters offers the highest level of dust and water protection without the addition of costly and time-consuming weatherproofing tapes.
