Robust RF connectors for high-power transmitters
The RF connectors in the series SIMFix® are rugged, durable connectors for use in high performance transmitter applications. These connectors are waterproof and are suitable for external use. Furthermore, they are designed to provide excellent technical performance, especially concerning return loss and intermodulation.
The SIMFix® range includes RF connectors for terminating 1/4“, 1/2” flex, 1/2”, 7/8”, 1 1/2” and 1 5/8” sized corrugated cables.
Assembly for all sizes is simple and reliable, thus guaranteeing constantly good electrical performance with regard to return loss and intermodulation. Ease of termination of the cables has been greatly enhanced by the use of specially developed tooling, which allows for exact stripping of the corrugated cables in the shortest of time.
Available for different cable types
SIMFix® Pro - IP68: Waterproof with a high margin of safety
3-fold protection concept
Protection Step 1:
An O-ring on the outer jacket of the cable guarantees reliable protection against the ingress of water in normal applications of an undamaged cable.
Protection Step 2:
A special sealing to the outer conductor of the cable. Damage to the cable’s outer jacket poses the danger that water will enter the connector between the outer jacket and the outer conductor of the cable. This is prevented by the additional sealing.
Protection Step 3:
Barrier sealed by protective steps taken on centre contact. Massive destruction of the cable resulting in water ingress into the dielectric and possibly even into the inner conductor can destroy the following cable segment and even damage the base station, if water is able to seep through the connector.
