This standard straight-bodied SMA Male connector is designed for an ordinary crimp and solder attachment to LMR-240 and equivalent series braided coaxial cables.

  • Supports frequencies up to 6 GHz
  • Suits all L-240 series coaxial cables
  • 6.5 mm (.255″) hex die crimp attachment
  • Interface compliant to IEC 61169-15

SMA connectors have become the mainstay of wireless technologies thanks to their modest durability and very compact size. The SMA Male (also referred to as an SMA Plug) connector can be identified by its hex-shaped outer body which rotates to interface by its inner thread.

A gold pin protrudes from the centre of the connector which upon threading together couples with the receptacle on the female connector.

Installation is a simple process. After preparing the cable, the pin is soldered onto the centre conductor and outer body pushed over the top until the pin sits flush. A standard 6.5 mm (0.255″) hex die is used to crimp the ferrule.
