Hannover (Germany), October 11, 2017 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of cable, antenna and tower systems providing total-package solutions for wireless and broadcast infrastructure, today introduced a new series of high-performance OMNI FIT™ standard connectors that deliver a first-class feature set at a competitive price. The new connectors provide excellent electrical performance, N, 7-16 DIN and 4.3-10 interfaces, and three attachment options to support any installation requirement. To help operators take advantage of the new connectors, RFS is offering them at similar prices to legacy OMNI FIT standard connectors.
OMNI FIT connectors are designed for use with RFS’ CELLFLEX® copper cables and CELLFLEX® Lite aluminum cables. The new C03 series of OMNI FIT connectors provide excellent PIM and VSWR ratings to help operators maintain high levels of signal quality and system performance at all times. Using connectors that provide improved electrical characteristics helps operators squeeze every last bit of performance out of existing infrastructure and maintain end-user satisfaction.
To help operators simplify installations and deal with increasingly smaller installation spaces, the new series of OMNI FIT connectors includes a space-saving 4.3-10 interface that is available with three attachment options:
- A push-pull lock and unlock attachment mechanism that is ideal for the smallest installation spaces.
- A hand-screw attachment mechanism that is ideal for indoor and outdoor spaces where installation must be completed using only one hand.
- A hex-head attachment mechanism that is ideal for harsh environments where there is enough space to use a wrench for installation.
The connectors are also available with traditional 7-16 DIN and type N interfaces so that any installation requirement can be met. To help operators minimize the burden on already loaded towers and to expedite installations, the C03 connectors weigh less than the previous generation of OMNI FIT connectors.
“We’ve designed the C03 series of OMNI FIT connectors to address very specific operator challenges — improving performance, while simplifying installation in even the tightest spaces to support typical tower situations as well as new applications such as small-cell deployments,” said Gerhard Wunder, Regional Product Manager, RFS. “These connectors provide those benefits, and they do it in a very cost-effective way.”
The new, high-performance OMNI FIT standard connectors, along with RFS’ OMNI FIT premium connectors, provide the market with a complete offering for field-installable connectors.
