  • 4.3/10 ADAPTERS EXPAND AMPHENOL RF LOW PIM ADAPTER PRODUCT LINE

    4.3-10 Adapter Press Release Collage

    Amphenol RF’s low-PIM 4.3/10 series is ideal for space restricted and weight sensitive applications.

    Danbury, CT – Amphenol RF is proud to expand their low PIM adapter product family with the 4.3/10 coaxial interface.  This low PIM interface is ideal for space restricted, high density and weight sensitive applications. The 4.3/10 interface is 40% smaller and 60% lighter than 7/16 DIN while providing superior performance across the board. This translates to more connections in smaller spaces and increased panel capacity while reducing overall panel load.  This highly stable connector series nearly eliminates PIM concerns with a PIM rating of -166dBc. Additionally, due to improved contact design, 4.3/10 can achieve this PIM reliability even with significantly reduced mating torque requirements versus 7/16 DIN products.

    The 4.3/10 adapters are available in between series and in-series configurations and are ideal for field use as well as lab use.  All are sealed to IP67 in the mated condition.  Adapter bodies are machined from brass and plated with white bronze, a nickel free alloy, to prevent unwanted intermodulation distortion.  Male center contacts are machined from brass while female socket contacts are machined from beryllium copper, both with silver plating.

    Excellent return loss from DC to 6GHz makes the 4.3/10 interface ideal for not only today's applications but also future applications requiring increased bandwidth over today’s requirements. All of the advantages of 4.3/10 make it the ideal solution for the needs of the wireless communications industry.
