SMA connectors are a mainstay of low frequency wireless technologies.
This bulkhead mounted SMA Female connector is designed for an ordinary crimp and solder attachment to LMR-240 and equivalent series coaxial cables.
Installation is simple. After preparing the cable, the pin is soldered onto the centre conductor and outer body pushed over the top until the pin sits flush. A standard 6.5 mm (0.255") hex die is used to crimp the ferrule.
The bulkhead interface allows the SMA connector to be panel mounted by drilling a 7 mm diameter hole and sliding the body from the rear through the hole. The supplied nut and washer secures the SMA connector to the mounting surface.
L-240, sometimes referred to as LMR-240, is a low loss coaxial cable with a medium sized 6.10 mm outer diameter. This series is without a doubt the most popular choice of RF cable, due to its efficient compromise between performance and cost.
L-240 cable provides the flexibility and easy installation of a smaller diameter cable, with the low attenuation and shielding advantages of a larger cable. Unlike larger cables, L-240 can pass 5G and mmWave frequencies up to 31 GHz.
Pound-for-pound L-240 has the lowest loss of any Flexible cable with performance comparable to Semi-Rigid hard-line cables.
