BNC Bulkhead Adapter Meets IP67 and IP68 Weatherproof Requirements

Custom BNC Bulkhead Adapter

The BNC connector interface is widely used in a multitude of applications despite a design that originated in the 1940s. The basic design originally offered a minimal weather protection in the mated condition and almost no protection when un-mated.

Aviel Electronics, a division of RF Industries, designed a BNC bulkhead adapter incorporating a glass bead that hermetically seals the connector to withstand a 100 PSI leak test. The adapter, Aviel model number Z-1142 may be used in IP67 or IP68 applications in the mated and unmated condition. All interface dimensions are designed to IAW MIL-C-39012 specifications and overall dimensions to UG-492D/U specification. The adapter is manufactured with silver plated brass body and gold plated center contacts. The adapter is 50 ohm impedance and rated at DC to 4 GHz. with low reflection (VSWR).

The adapter is also available in custom outline dimensions to meet customer requirements for special applications.

Custom SMB Panel Mount Jack Designed to Accommodate Test Equipment

SSMA Connector

A defense contractor application required a custom SMB jack coaxial connector to be attached to a piece of test equipment. The requirement included mechanical and electrical parameters as well as a pressure seal of the connector to the panel.

Aviel Electronics designed a panel mounted SMB jack with a threaded passivated stainless steel type 303 body and hex nuts. A silicone rubber O-ring design on the body seals the finished assembly for pressurization. Black polyether ether ketone (PEEK) thermoplastic polymer was utilized as the internal insulator with DuPont Teflon as the insulator for the SMB connector. The center contact is plated with mil-standard gold.

All aspects of the design, manufacture and testing were performed in the United States to comply with the customers’ sourcing requirements.

Precision High Frequency SSMA Connector Operates in High Vibration Applications

SSMA Connector

A military aerospace manufacturer with a custom antenna design required an RF coaxial connector that would perform in a high vibration environment. The connector’s mechanical requirements include termination onto .085 inch semi-rigid cable, chassis mounting and SSMA interface. The electrical requirements included operating frequency up to 26 Ghz. A standard chassis mount SSMA connector would meet the basis requirements, however would not perform in a high vibration environment.

Aviel’s design team developed a custom connector with floating body and pin that allow both axial and radial movement while maintaining excellent electrical performance to 26 Ghz. To meet the high vibration application, the pin movement is independent of the body. Custom spring designs of Elgiloy Cobalt-Chromium-nickel non-magnetic alloy were utilized for the body and contact movements. The body components are manufactured of machined 303 stainless steel and the contact of beryllium copper with MIL-STD gold plating.

All aspects of the design, manufacture and testing were performed in the United States to comply with the customers’ sourcing requirements.

Custom SMA to MCX Adapter Supports Machine Design

Custom SMA to MCX Adapter

An OEM manufacturer required a special SMA plug to MCX jack configuration for an over molding process to fit their custom equipment design. The SMA plug to MCX jack adapter required a non-moveable SMA end to over mold, producing an external waterproof seal when mated with a standard off-the-shelf SMA jack. The AB-SMA-JKMA-3P01 special adapter was mounted directly to their unit and molded in place. This allowed an RF electrical connection to standard ports with modified external configurations, accommodating the intent of the finished product.

Most times when a standard connector cannot be used it is due to special mechanical or electrical requirements. A custom adapter offers the equipment designer allowances to produce the best device they can at a cost savings in the design approach and manufacture they have chosen. The custom adapter fills the customer’s special needs when a standard off-the-shelf connector or adapter is not available.

Aviel Electronics specializes in the design and manufacture of coaxial connectors and adapters with special mechanical or electrical requirements when a standard off-the-shelf connector or adapter cannot be considered. This allows equipment designers some allowances to produce the best device they can at a cost savings in their design approach and manufacture methods they have chosen.

Custom Blindmate Coaxial Connector/Adapter Mitigates Mechanical Misalignment

blindmate Coaxial Connectors

Blindmate connectors simplify RF signal interface between devices or units that may not be in linear alignment. Standard blindmate connectors are available from several manufactures, but some applications with diverse mechanical or electrical properties require a custom design.

Aviel Electronics, a division of RF Industries, offers custom blind mate connectors for specific applications. General design features include a non-threaded push-on connector interface for touch-less mating. One end of the pair provide a floating, spring mounted body that moves independent of the flange mount to ensure reliable electrical contact, even with some mechanical misalignment. The blindmate pair shown offer good electrical performance up to 4Ghz with bodies manufactured from stainless steel and female contacts from beryllium copper. Aviel can design and fabricate custom blind mate connectors up to 40Ghz using a variety of materials and mechanical mounting techniques.

WiFi and FCC Compliant Antenna Connectors

WiFi Connectors

Aviel Electronics designs and manufactures “unique coupling connectors” for antenna connections that require compliance with Part 15.203 of the Federal Communications Commission regulations. The connectors range from totally custom to a specific application to a modified version of a standard connector interface to a “standard” reverse polarity interface. Flange mount, crimp and compression cable mounts can be used with uniquely interfaced connector pairs to preclude the possibility of erroneous component mismating. “Coded” pairs can also be fabricated to add further uniqueness within a family of connector components. Materials used in construction are stainless steel, brass or aluminum bodies, beryllium copper contacts with gold, silver or other popular platings available.

Hermetically Sealed Connectors

Hermetically Sealed

The Aviel Electronics Division of RF Industries will design and fabricate hermetically sealed connectors to handle your sealing requirements. Once the connector series and body configuration is established, the inner construction of the connector can be designed to supply the sealing required for your operating environment. Sealing can be accomplished by using O-rings, epoxy seals and glass-to-metal seals. Seals can easily withstand air pressures of 100 PSI+ of pressure and helium leak rates of <1 x 10 -8 cc/second of helium tracer gas. Applications can range from moisture resistance sealing, space applications, material detection systems, isolation of volatile materials, and altitude problems. Connectors can be supplied in configurations from small custom designs through SMA, TNC, N, SC and HN sizes, and in body configurations from bulkhead, screw-in, flange mount, and press-in designs.
