HBR SMA Male Connector for L-240 Cable, Solder Contact
Locally Stocked

SMA connectors have become the mainstay of low frequency wireless technologies thanks to their modest durability and very compact size.

This Straight-bodied SMA Male connector is designed for an ordinary crimp and solder attachment to LMR-240 and equivalent series braided coaxial cables.

Installation is very 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 6.48 mm (.255") hex die is used to crimp the ferrule.

Recommended Use

This LMR-240 SMA Male connector has been developed for every day use in wireless technology installations. Economically priced with exceptional performance.

Most SMA Male connectors, even from reputable vendors, have an upper frequency limit of 3 GHz. This 6 GHz SMA Male connector is supplied to ensure compatibility with 5G FR1 and 5 GHz wireless technologies.

Cable Suitability

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.
