WALLINGFORD, Conn., 8 Aug. 2010. Times Microwave Systems in Wallingford, Conn., is introducing four type 716 DIN straight and right angle EZ no-solder connectors for LMR-400 and LMR-600 RF and microwave cables. LMR cables are low loss, flexible, non-kinking RF transmission line cables that use easy-to-install connectors and are suitable for use as antenna feeders, system jumpers, and interconnects.
Features include no braid trimming needed after cable prep (except the EZ-600-716F still requires braid trim); no soldering required on the center conductor; combination hex/knurl coupling nut-allows tightening by hand or with a wrench; tri-metal plating instead of silver plating-eliminates tarnishing, while providing superior electrical performance; chamfered cable entry hole for ease of termination; ridged landing area on the aft end for better grip and sealing of the heat shrink boot-to provide improved strain relief and weather sealing; and enhanced impedance matching to provide superior VSWR performance.
Advantage connectors are available for LMR cables ranging from LMR-195 through LMR-600. Advantage connectors include EZ (no-solder) and solder versions and both crimp and simple 2-piece clamp styles. For more information contact Times Microwave online at www.timesmicrowave.com.
