Bomar Interconnect Products Inc. has added a sealed female Type N connector to its proprietary line of RoHS-compliant V-Bite RF edgeboard connectors. With a weather-tight, waterproof, through-panel mount seal, this high-performance Type N connector is suitable for outdoor antennas and portable test equipment.

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, offers an extremely low profile (half the connector's diameter) and small footprint. The V-Bite connectors snap and lock in place for secure PCB 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.

Offered in an impedance of 50, the sealed female Type N V-Bite connectors are engineered for use in outdoor RF applications that require a weather-tight connection and consistent performance up to 18GHz. Parts can be used in a variety of outdoor high-power applications including base stations, cellular antennas, broadcast, SATcom, microwave radio, radar, and portable test and measurement equipment.

Featuring brass/gold contacts, the V-Bite connectors are precision engineered of machined brass, and feature 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.

In addition to the new sealed female Type N connector, the ten-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.

Pricing starts at $8.40 each in quantities of 1,000. Samples are available immediately. Delivery is from stock to 12 weeks.
