coaxial connector

coaxial connector

[kō′ak·sē·əl kə′nek·tər]
(electromagnetism)
An electric connector between a coaxial cable and an equipment circuit, so constructed as to maintain the conductor configuration, through the separable connection, and the characteristic impedance of the coaxial cable.

F connector

A two-wire (signal and ground) coaxial cable connector used to connect antennas and set-top boxes to TVs, VCRs and DVDs. F connector cables typically carry analog NTSC TV signals, and the plug's socket is easily identified by its threads. Plugs come threaded and unthreaded, both of which fit the threaded socket. See A/V ports and plugs and sockets.


Antenna - Ant/Cable - RF
F connectors are commonly used for connecting antennas and cable set-top boxes to TVs and other video equipment. The socket is marked "ANTENNA" or "ANT/CABLE" or "RF," the latter referring to the analog video "radio frequency" signal. See RF.

Elements of the structure of a coaxial disk shunt of the IIIK-300M2 type in its longitudinal axial section (1--massive internal cylindrical electrode, 2,3--insulating sleeves, 4--massive outer cylindrical electrode, 5--high-resistance steel measuring disk, 6,7--massive insulation disks, 8--a shroud disk, 9,10,12--fastening screws, 11--CP-75 output coaxial connector, 13--massive clamping ring, 14, 15--respectively input (potential) and output (earthed) bolted shunt connecting elements to high-current discharge circuit of the GCL)
The measurements were made by using a probe adapted from a low-cost open-ended SMA coaxial connector. The values obtained in a VNA of the reflection coefficient are converted into the real and imaginary part of the complex dielectric permittivity by using theoretical models of the cable's open end.
A two-prong plug goes into the wall (a 220 adapter is provided for European customers), and a coaxial connector fits into a port in the side of the safe.
The inner conductor of the coaxial connector is soldered to the line.
As d becomes smaller VSWR in lower frequency band becomes better quickly, however the ridge gap has a lower limit value to be larger than the diameter of the inner conductor of coaxial connector, the final value for d is chosen as 0.9 mm.
The Endevco model EM46BE comes in a preassembled, precalibrated kit, consisting of the model EM40BE prepolarized free-field microphone and the model EM26CB Isotron preamplifier with Microdot coaxial connector, both constructed of stainless steel for high durability.
A glass substrate (h = 3 mm, [[epsilon].sub.r] = 7.35) of the type used for car windows is chosen as the dielectric substrate, and the B-PMA is connected to a 50 [OMEGA] coaxial cable through a 50 [OMEGA] coaxial connector. Here, the core of the coaxial connector is soldered to the elliptical element, and the outer conductor is soldered to the conducting ground.
