Bomar's New Edgeboard Connector for Outdoor RF Use
Edgeboard coax connector.
Ledgewood, NJ — Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. has added a sealed female Type N connector to its proprietary line of RoHS-compliant V-Bite RF edgeboard connectors. Designed to deliver excellent signal integrity in the most demanding RF applications, this high-performance Type N connector is suitable for outdoor antennas and portable test equipment as it has a weather-tight, waterproof, through-panel mount seal.

The coax connector is engineered with a silicone ring on the inside of the panel or box to create a robust seal when the nut is tightened from the front. The sealed part, along with the full V-Bite Series, has an extremely low profile (plus 1/2 the connector's diameter) and small footprint. According to the company, the connector provides the utmost in anti-rotation abilities to ensure the stability and reliability of connections. V-Bites simply snap and lock in place for secure PC board retention during hand or reflow soldering, and are supported from above and below the board to disperse rotational torque relief to minimize stress on the solder area.

In addition to the new sealed female Type N connector, the 10-member V-Bite Series consists of standard male and female Type N versions, Type F, threaded through-panel BNC and standard BNC, along with twin BNC, Mini-BNC, Twin BNC and TNC styles.

Offered in an impedance of 50Ω, sealed female Type N V-Bites are engineered for use in outdoor RF applications demanding a durable, waterproof, weather-tight connection providing consistent performance through 18GHz. Parts are easily attached to printed circuit boards for acceptance of cable or antenna terminations, and can be used in an array of outdoor high power applications including base stations, cellular antennas, broadcast, SATcom, microwave radio, radar, and portable test and measurement equipment.The connectors have brass/gold contacts, and are precision engineered of machined brass, with a straight-through contact design to provide an extremely low reflection factor with a VSWR of 1.30. Parts are supplied with a Teflon dielectric to facilitate reflow soldering, and are offered in an extensive selection of custom mechanical configurations.
