MCX micro-coaxcial connectors:Further improvement in meeting modern requirments

1 March 2000 Interconnection

The Suhner MCX coaxial connectors are used in mobile and fixed telecommunications, in GPS applications and in test and measurement systems for testing instruments and other devices. They are designed for frequencies up to 6 GHz and are tested according to the international standard CECC 22220. They have been designed to meet all the ex acting requirements that micro-coaxial connectors are expected to satisfy today.

The MCX connectors are available in a wide selection of versions for cable, circuit board, flange or housing mounting. Moreover, they are offered in variants with additional surface platings and packagings, including the new Suhner Sucopro plating. The range is completed by a varied line of accessories comprising precision adapters and an MCX test kit, among other items. Special attention has also been paid to the further improvement of supply readiness and reliability.

Suhner MCX coaxial connectors are distinguished by advantages such as their very high product quality, the outstanding reproducibility of electrical performance values up to 6 GHz, superior mechanical characteristics of their snap-on interface and their optimal size with regard to space requirements and handling.

Application of state-of-the-art technologies

Numerous innovative technologies have been applied in the selection of the materials of construction and the manufacturing process. For example, a new and patented metal section is used for manufacturing the circuit board connectors, which offers price-related as well as mechanical advantages over connectors of a conventional design. Furthermore, reproducibility and process accuracy have been further increased by the application of injection-moulded insulators of PFA. The crown made of a punched and bent component is another feature illustrating continuous innovation. All of these advances help lead to marked cost reductions.

If large quantities of connectors are needed for industrial-scale processing, the Suhner MCX coaxial connectors can be supplied in tape and reel packagings.
