Coaxial Cable Assembly – More Information
GradConn offer a wide variety of coaxial cable assemblies, with particular strength in micro coaxial cables for wireless markets, such as GSM, GPS, Wireless LAN (WLAN), Wi-Fi, Zigbee Z-Wave, EnOcean and Bluetooth.
Micro applications often use a micro coax cable assembly mating with a wireless module on the PCB, a length of cable is often used to break out of the product via an interface connector with a cutout in the bulkhead.
These options allow customers to plug in an antenna or further extension cable on the opposite side of the bulkhead.
GradConn offer original Hirose and Murata products as well as economic and inter-matable alternatives from I-Pex.
I-Pex are a high-quality Japanese manufacturer established in 1984. GradConn use original I-Pex tooling and have many satisfied customers who previously used major brands, however customers should always test samples to approve the use of I-Pex connectors.
