With the rise of IoT, Smart City & homes, Industrial 4.0, Advance telematics and much more, GradConn coaxial cable assemblies play an increasingly important role across a variety of wireless protocols.
The primary use of GradConn cable assemblies is to mate with wireless modules on a PCB within a design. This is often through a micro coax connector on a cable, with a bulkhead connector on the opposite end breaking out of the product and mounted on its panel. This allows for antennas or extension cables to be plugged into the product.
The diagram shows this in action for an I-PEX MHF micro connector and an SMA bulkhead jack, connecting with an external antenna.
The Nautilus range of IP rated connectors and assemblies is an industry leader in dust and waterproof coaxials, offering IP67 & IP68 protection from moisture and particle ingress mated and unmated.
