The N Female RF connector, commonly known as the jack, is characterised by its central receptacle and an outer shell with a hexagonal or knurled design, complemented by a threaded coupling mechanism. It's designed for compatibility with the N Male connector, which has a corresponding pin.

The centre receptacle of the connector is typically made from conductive materials such as gold-plated brass or silver-plated beryllium copper, ensuring a reliable electrical connection. The design and dimensions of the receptacle are important for ensuring a good fit with the male pin and minimising signal loss.

The outer shell of the N Female connector has two main functions. The first is providing a mechanical connection, with the threaded coupling aiding in securing a stable connection. The second function is electrical grounding and shielding, helping to protect the RF signal from external interference.

The threaded coupling of the N Female RF connector offers a reliable connection. Proper alignment during the mating process is necessary to ensure the connection's integrity and to avoid potential issues such as cross-threading.
