RF Multipin Connectors


 

THE PROBLEM

In various applications many coaxial microwave links have to be connected and disconnected. This means threadening and unthreadening, torquing and untorquing. Very dense packaging in not possible, as there is still room needed for manual threadening and for the use of a torque wrench. In helicopters and aircrafts all connecotrs usually have to be safe secured, e.g. by wiring the coupling nuts of the connectors, using wire holes, a time-consuming process.

RF Multipin Connectors - The Problem

 

Threadening and torquing, unthreadening and untorquing 24 connections, a time consuming process, and lots of space is needed.

 

THE SOLUTION

Spectrum’s Multipin Connectors are available with four (4), seven (7), eight (8), ten (10), twelve (12) and twenty-three (23) coaxial inserts (terminating the coaxial cable assemblies) at the Multipin end, connecting all the coaxial cable assemblies at once and in seconds with no need of a torque wrench, no need for safety wires and using minimum space.

RF Multipin Connectors - The Solution

 

24 cable assemblies in 2 connectors, safely connected and disconnected within seconds.

 

CIRCULAR MULTIPORTS

The traditional RF Multipin Connector SQ-8, per MIL-DTL-38999, Series III

RF Multipin Connectors - SQ-Series

The traditional model is the SQ-8 Multipin Connector using the circular size 21 shell per MIL-DTL-38999 Series III, supplied with eight (8) coaxial microwave inserts, terminating always one end of each cable assembly.

As the inserts are spring loaded and use a bayonet catch, the cable assemblies can be inserted and replaced in seconds. The inserts were designed for Spectrum’s Type 11 and Type 43 cables. The SQ-8 does not mate with the TQ-, IQ-, BQ or CQ-Series. learn more »

 

RF Multipin Connectors TQ-Series, per MIL-DTL-38999, Series III

RF Multipin Connectors - TQ-Series

The new TQ-Series Multipin Connectors are using the circular size 21 shell per MIL-DTL-38999 Series III with four (4) or eight (8) inserts and size 25 with seven (7), ten (10) or twelve (12) inserts, allowing the use of four different cable types:

Type 11, Type 43, Type 100 and Type 141, depending on flexibility and/or loss needed. learn more »

 

RF Multipin Connectors IQ-Series, per MIL-DTL-38999, Series III

RF Multipin Connectors - IQ-Series

The new IQ-Series Multipin Connectors are almost identical with the TQ-series, with one major difference:

The outer conductors of the coaxial lines and the connector shell do not use the same ground. So the coaxial lines can be guided in a metal hose, netmesh or armor, for lightening protection. TQ- and IQ-Series do mate with each other. learn more »

 

RF Multipin Connectors BQ-Series, per MIL-DTL-38999, Series I

RF Multipin Connectors - BQ-Series

The new BQ-Series Multipin Connectors are almost identical with the TQ-Series.

The only difference is in the shell.

The BQ-Series do use the Bayonet catch shell per MIL-DTL-38999 Series I instead of the thread on shell per MIL-DTL-38999 Series III. learn more »

 

RF Multipin Connectors CQ-Series, per MIL-DTL-38999, Series I

RF Multipin Connectors - CQ-Series

The new CQ-Series Multipin Connectors are almost identical with the BQ-Series, having one major difference:

The outer conductor of the coaxial cable assemblies and the connector shell per MILDTL-38999 series 1 are not using the same ground. The coaxial lines can be guided in a metal hose, net mesh or armor, connected to the shells for lightening protection. TQ-, IQ-, BQ-, and CQ-Series mate with each other. learn more »

 

RECTANGULAR MULTIPORTS

RF Multipin Connectors - RQ-Series

The RQ-Multiport Connectors are using a rectangular shell, developed by Spectrum Elektrotechnik GmbH, allowing dense packaging. The operating frequency depends on the inserts for frequencies to 65.0 GHz.

The RQ23-DC26 is employing twenty-three (23) coaxial cable assemblies plus twenty-six (26) signal lines in one connector and has been qualified in an airborne program. Coaxial cable of Type 11 and/or Type 43 and AWG20 wire for the lower frequency signals or supplies are being used. It can be modified for other coaxial cables. learn more »
