N Male Connector for 3/8" Coaxial Cable, RAPID FIT™ O-ring sealing

Rev : B | Rev date : 12 Nov 2009
Radio Frequency Systems line of high performance coaxial cable connectors are designed specifically to provide the highest quality connector-cable interface while simplifying and speeding up the attachment of connectors to CELLFLEX® coaxial cables. RFS connectors are fully tested for mechanical and electrical compliance specifications. They are available in all popular cable sizes in a variety of mating interfaces.; The N connector is one of the most common RF connector types. N type connectors from RFS will be delivered with a non-slotted outer conductor contact sleeve and a special gasket. Due to a special design of the coupling nut (without spring ring) N connectors can be tightened with increased torque. This increases the contact pressure.


  • Single-piece design for Fast and Easy Installation - Reliable and simple attachment avoids unnecessary connector adjustments and provides outstanding performance every time. Saves time and provides cost savings.
  • Robust Mechanical Design - Low and consistent intermodulation performance guarantees outstanding system sensitivity.
  • Excellent Electrical Performance - Consistent and repeatable low VSWR improves overall system performance and margin and reduces mismatch losses
  • Totally Waterproof according to IP 68 - Assures safe, long term operation in the harshest of environments.
