What is an RF Connector?
RF connectors are a type of electrical connector meant to work at multi-megahertz range radio frequencies often used with coaxial cables to maintain the shielding that coaxial cables offer. RF connectors offer a fastening mechanism and springs for a low resistance electric contact.
Types of RF connectors
There are several different kinds of RF connectors at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including type, style / orientation, cable type, impedance, termination and packaging type, among others. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.
