Amphenol RF has announced the expansion of its 2.2-5 product series.

This expansion includes new plug and jack cable mount configurations designed for 0.141” conformable, RG-402, Times Tflex 402 and Belden 1673A semi-rigid cable.

The 2.2-5 interface is a compact version of the 4.3-10 connector series with a footprint that is 53% smaller. These connectors are lightweight and robust which makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

The 2.2-5 connector series is designed to meet the needs of applications which require low PIM in order to avoid interference in network quality during high speed data transmission. These connectors offer flexibility in installation and are IP68 rated in the mated condition allowing for prolonged exposure to the elements without compromising on their performance.

These 2.2-5 connectors are precision machined with a brass body and a beryllium copper contact. They are intended for wireless applications such as small cells, mobile networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), low power base stations and in-building architecture, and are critical to 5G communication technology.
