Belden Australia introduces a new line of low loss 50-ohm N connectors for a wide range of RF transmission applications.
The new series of low loss N connectors has been specifically designed and engineered to match the performance of Belden's RF coaxial cables, which feature ultra-low-loss dielectrics (up to 86 per cent velocity) for best attenuation in their respective size categories.
These 50-ohm cables are tested and verified from 30 MHz to 6 GHz with a maximum VSWR of 1.25:1. The cable/ N connector combination also meets a maximum VSWR of 1.25:1 (equivalent to a return loss of -19 dB).
Developed specifically to meet the requirements of high-speed, low loss applications, the RF coax cables and N connectors can be used in a wide range of RF applications including cell site transmissions, broadcast STLs and RPUs, wireless microphone diversity antennas as well as two-way radio or life/safety system connectivity.
The largest cable/connector combination (RF600 Series and NM600/NF600 connectors) can carry over 5kW at 30 MHz and more than 300W at 6 GHz, making them ideal for low-power television, back-up transmitters, FM and TV translators and repeaters as well as microwave transmission among other applications.
Belden's 50-ohm N connector line comprises of eight male N connectors (plugs) and eight female N connectors (jacks). A Belden crimp tool provides a full crimp every time.
The 50-ohm N connectors' insulators are made of Teflon, the centre contacts are gold-plated and the outer contacts are either silver or nickel-plated. All other connector parts are nickel-plated bronze with a tarnish-resistant finish.
Most of the RF cables come in three versions: outdoor, riser-rated/indoor and direct burial/water protected.
