PIM Stability in Every Size

Ever-increasing amounts of data have made further developments of global mobile networks essential. Above all, the development of 5G – the next generation of mobile communications – is creating new and more diverse tasks for the mobile communications industry.

Telegärtner has developed the Cell IQ family to meet easily these challenges – today and in the future. This family comprised of three products: the field-proven 4.3-10 series standard, the compact and robust 2.2-5 series solution and the 1.5-3.5 series which already helps you take the next step into the future of connection technology. These products cover the complete spectrum of MCO requirements and deliver maximum power in any size.

The portfolio is completed by the NEX10® connector series, which is particularly suitable for small cell applications due to the compact size.

The Industry Standard

Due to their compact design these connectors do justice to the miniaturisation of mobile radio network components.

Despite their size, compared to the traditional 7-16 series, the connectors guarantee excellent return loss and passive intermodulation performance (PIM) levels. In addition, the new connector series is very variable, since one universal cable jack is suitable for mating with three different cable plug designs.

Highest RF-Power in Class

The 2.2-5 series has adopted the successful concept of 4.3-10 and reduced the size accordingly. While the 4.3-10 typically require the same installation space as the classic N-connector, the 2.2-5 are satisfied with the standard installation dimensions of the TNC series.

Despite the significant reduction in dimensions and weight, the Series 2.2-5 has comparable electrical and thermoclimatic characteristics to the Series 4.3-10, and can be used both indoors and outdoors with corrugated sheathed cables up to the common 1/2” types.

Best Size-Power-Ratio in the Market

The 1.5-3.5 series enables a robust and PIM stable design in the smallest space. The space requirements for a typical 4 hole flange jack are only either 15 × 9.7 mm or 12.7 × 12.7 mm. Therefore the 1.5-3.5, based on the SMA form factor, requires around 47% less space than the 2.2-5 series and 75 % less space than the 4.3-10 series.

Hand in hand with the size and material reduction, there is also a cost and weight reduction, meaning this series is ideal for small cell applications. Despite the small size, low loss cables up to 1/4” can be used.

For Every Application the Right Solution.

When it becomes mechanically demanding

The 2.2-5 connector is also convincing for mechanically demanding applications and is used, for example, in the transportation sector. Thanks to the push-pull variant, the connector is particularly easy to connect compared to other common series. At the same time, it is significantly more robust and vibration-proof and ensures reliable connections even under difficult environmental conditions.

 

For particularly space-critical installation situations

The 1.5-3.5 connector is the smallest in the portfolio and offers the best size-performance-ratio. Due to its particular robustness, the connector is suitable for applications with frequent mating cycles. Especially in the agricultural sector, when used in assistance or radar systems, this can be a decisive factor, as connections to devices have to be made and released frequently.

 

Suitable for the most adverse climatic conditions

The connectors of the Cell IQ series withstand the most adverse environmental conditions. Even in precipitation, UV radiation or extreme temperatures, the products offer optimum transmission results. The connectors with IP68 protection class are designed for operating temperatures from -55°C to +90°C.
