Encyclopedia > RF connector

An RF connector is an electrical connector designed to work at radio frequencies in the multi-megahertz range. RF connectors are typically used with coaxial cables and are designed to maintain the shielding that the coaxial design offers. Better models also minimize the change in transmission line impedance at the connection. Mechanically they provide a fastening mechanism (thread, bayonet, braces, push pull) and springs for a low ohmic electric contact while sparing the gold surface thus allowing above 1000 reconnects and reducing the insertion force. An electrical connector is a device for joining electrical circuits together. ... Radio frequency, or RF, refers to that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in which electromagnetic waves can be generated by alternating current fed to an antenna. ... Coaxial Cable For the weapon, see coaxial weapon. ... Electrical impedance, or simply impedance, is a measure of opposition to a sinusoidal alternating electric current. ... Screw thread, used to convert torque into the linear force in the flood gate. ... A bayonet mount A bayonet mount before and after insertion A bayonet mount or bayonet connector is a fastening mechanism that relies on mated surfaces; a male side with one or more pins or slots, and a female receptor with matching slots and a spring that maintains a clamping force. ...
