Waterproof IP67 cable assemblies add tamper resistant design element to RF applicationsEngineering360 News Desk | August 04, 2021
Amphenol RF has expanded its waterproof IP‐rated and tamper‐resistant cable assembly options with TNC and RP-TNC configurations. These cable assemblies are designed using 1.13 mm micro coax cable and feature the ultraminiature AMC4 connector on one end. The recently introduced ultraminiature assemblies are intended for use in applications where systems may be compromised through exposure to the elements or external tampering and offer strong protection against either.
Both TNC and RP-TNC cable assembly configurations operate at 50 ohms and utilize the familiar threaded interface, which ensures mating stability and reliable electrical performance. The front‐mounted bulkhead jacks can be fastened on the inside of the panel or enclosure that provides additional security for sensitive systems. The 1.13 mm micro coax cable provides additional flexibility for installation needs, as well as an ultraminiature mated connection for small spaces and crowded PCBs.
Waterproof sealed solutions are engineered to protect applications from outside elements and are fully tested to IP67 specifications in the mated and unmated condition. RF lines are designed to meet interface performance specifications, with the addition of internal and external sealing features. IP67 products are suited for a number of applications, including remote outdoor enclosures, portable radios, handheld devices and industrial equipment.
