LISLE, Ill. – Molex Inc. in Lisle, Ill., is introducing the compact 2.2-5 RF connector system and cable assemblies for high-frequency and low passive intermodulation (PIM).

Molex developed the 2.25 form factor together with the 2.2-5 consortium by adapting and miniaturizing the 4.3-10 form factor. Molex 2.2-5 RF connectors are 53 percent smaller than 4.3-10 connectors, and capable of frequencies to 6 GHz.

Wireless and 5G network infrastructures require coaxial jumpers that can deliver premium electrical performance and robust environmental capabilities to withstand the elements. Molex 2.2-5 RF cable jumpers are factory fabricated and provide a IP68 NEMA rating when mated, protecting the connector system from dust and water ingress.

Molex offers custom assemblies integrating 2.2-5 form factor connectors in a range of mating options for design flexibility, ease of installation, and optimal electrical performance.

The IP68 2.2-5 system features an air dielectric interface enabling superior bandwidth and low insertion loss in 5G networks and any application with critical signal capacities and space.
