Times Microwave SMA Male Connector for LMR-240, Solder-Free
Globally Stocked (1-2 Weeks)

Times Microwave's EZ series of RF connectors are designed for fast solder-free cable termination, with the centre contact pre-fitted in the connector body and mating using a push-on captivated contact mechanism.

Times' LMR-240 SMA Male connector is compatible with all LMR-240 series cables. Once prepared to the correct dimensions the cable is inserted and ferrule is crimped using a standard 6.48 mm (.255") hex die tool.

The EZ-240-SM-X connector efficiently passes RF mode free up to 6 GHz making it suitable for modern and emerging wireless technologies.

Recommended Use

An Amphenol brand, Times Microwave connectors are world renown for their electrical performance and mechanical longevity and survivability.

EZ series "solder-free" connectors are ideal for mining and industrial environments where the use of soldering tools are restricted by hot-works permits. They are also ideal for challenging environmental conditions such as high winds and rain.

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.
