Provide secure and consistent linkage for RF cables, playing a crucial role in signal transmission and integrity.

An RF connector serves as both a mechanical and electrical termination to a transmission line such as a cable, allowing its signal to traverse another component in an RF system. RF connectors are designed so that a signal may traverse its boundary without losing power through reflections.

Powertec has access to a comprehensive range of RF connectors; spanning the cost effective for mass consumption, to precision laboratory, hermetically sealed, thermovac, and outgassing compliant for aerospace applications. Direct access to major brands and OEM production ensures the lowest possible unit cost without compromising the success of your project.

Basic Terminology

A type of RF connector design is called a Series, with each series implementing a male and female Interface. The process of interconnecting two interfaces is called Coupling or Mating the connectors.

RF connectors are often referred to as coaxial connectors, however as this section can include triaxial and air-dielectric waveguide RF connectors the term RF connector is preferred.
