A comprehensive line of RF adapters, normally employed in the DAS, cellular, aviation and military industries, is available from Fairview Microwave. The IP67 rated adapters are suited to the aforementioned industries due to their ingress protection from water and dust.
The company have released a range of adapters including the 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type-N and TNC in-series adapters. Between-series versions now available include 7/16 DIN to 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, 7/16 DIN to Type-N and 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to Type-N. Compatible with all like-series connectors, cables, passive and active components, each adapter operates to 6 GHz with excellent VSWR of 1.15:1 to 1:25:1 depending on the connector type.
The RF adapters are also offered in two different versions, “Mated” and “Unmated”. “Mated” adapters meet the requirements of IP67 only when both ends of the adapter are terminated in mating connectors. “Unmated” adapters meet the requirements of IP67 even when one or both ends of the adapter are unterminated.
“In outdoor RF communications installations, ingress protection against dust and water is imperative. This new line of IP67 adapters offers the highest level of dust and water protection without the addition of costly and time-consuming weatherproofing tapes”, says Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager at Fairview Microwave. “Our extensive offering includes IP67 adapters compliant in the mated and unmated condition ensuring you get the level of protection you need.”
