Field-Replaceable SMAs Offer Improved VSWR
Rated for maximum dielectric withstanding voltage (DWV) of 1000 V RMS at 60 Hz and sea level, a line of field-replaceable SMAs from San-tron feature VSWR of 1.07:1 from DC to 18 GHz, and 1.25:1 or better through 26.5 GHz. The connector families include models for mating with 0.012-, 0.015-, 0.018-, and 0.020-in center pins. The 50-O SMAs feature passivated 303 stainless-steel bodies with gold-plated center contacts and PTFE insulators. The connectors meet the mechanical interface requirements of MIL-STD-348. Pricing for 2 hole flange panel receptacles start under $4.00 @ quantities of 1,000+.
