Pasternack Enterprises Inc. has introduced a line coaxial ZMA adapters that are geared for military and industrial applications that require small-footprint, yet highly durable RF components. Precision SMA to ZMA adapters support operation up to 18GHz and are available in 3-Lug and 4-Lug keyed attachment designs to ensure proper system connections are made.

The bayonet-style coupling nut (locking mechanism) on the ZMA is similar to that on a BNC connector and can be easily mated and de-mated by hand with a one-third or one-quarter turn respectively, without the need for special tooling such as a torque wrench. These between-series ZMA adapters are available in configurations including SMA Female to ZMA Jack, SMA Female to ZMA Plug and SMA Male to ZMA Jack in both 3-Lug and 4-Lug designs and are compatible with any standard SMA or ZMA interface, described the firm.

Pasternack's ZMA series adapters are constructed with a passivated stainless steel body and have gold plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts. The ZMA connector design offers consistent and stable RF performance in harsh mechanical environments such as antenna systems fielded in extreme vibration environments with insufficient room for spring loaded blind-mate panels. ZMA adapters from Pasternack offer VSWR as low as 1.15:1 and are built in accordance with Mil-G-45204 standards and are also RoHS/REACH compliant.

The ZMA adapters from Pasternack are in-stock and available.
