Switching coaxial connector
November 5, 2009 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed an RF switching coaxial connector for antenna and printed circuit board performance verification. Designated LPC CP1/CP2, the connector features a high frequency range and low insertion loss. It features a low signal loss of under 0.3 dB, a minimum life of 12,000 mating cycles and a return loss VSWR of 1.2:1 at 2 GHz. A cold pin minimizes RF emissions in unmated scenarios. The connector also features a low-profile 5.6-mm test port along with the ability to address angular and offset misalignment. The connector is also available in a waterproof version (LPC SP1), which features a special rubber seal for IP67 compliance.
