RFS Announces 4.3-10 Field-Installable Connectors

Ultra-Stable Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM) connectors are designed match Radio Frequency Systems foam dielectric coaxial cables.

Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) recently introduced a field-installable 4.3-10- style connector to supplement its existing factory-fit jumper orientations. The compact RF connectors complement RFS’ foam dielectric coaxial cables and feature optimized PIM stability to meet industry demands. The two-piece design eliminates the possibility of loose parts and simplifies installation in the field to support mobile operators in their deployment of LTE, 5G and small cell networks.

All RFS cables and connectors are optimized for the highest performance to support wireless network deployments. The connectors were previously available as pre-assembled solder-on Factory-Fit Jumper Cables based on the 4.3-10 standard. The new mechanically-attached versions ensures that installers can use them in the field at sites where cables are already in place due to renovation work, traditional site rollouts, or through a cable stocking RFS facility.

As a progression of RFS’ popular ultra-low PIM OMNI FIT connector family, the 4.3-10 connectors similarly provide superior performance under all environmental conditions and feature a five-point watertight interface that eliminates the need for additional sealing. The new connectors support up to 500 watts at 2 GHz and guarantee a stable, premium VSWR, plus outstanding and consistent PIM performance.
