High frequency antenna connector reduces footprint by up to 37%

Hirose has reduced the size of its 2.5 GHz high frequency antenna connector to offer significant space-savings in automotive antenna systems.

Employing a one-step crimp termination design, the GT21 Series antenna connector also reduces assembly time and cost.The crimp termination design also enables the cable assembly to be completed without touching the center conductor, which provides precise center conductor positioning and consistent operation.

The GT21 Series antenna connector utilizes a highly reliable locking mechanism constructed to handle the shock andvibration commonly found in automotive applications. With a lock strength of 98N, the lock emits a clear tractile click when properly mated. A lock confirmation window further prevents incomplete mating.

The rugged GT21 Series connector is available in three termination variations, including a pin-through hole version, an SMT version and an in-line version.Theantenna connector supports single coaxial, 2-port, 3-port and 4-port cable terminations. The single coaxial version is offered in 4 colour coded keying options.

The GT21 Series is rated for exposure to shock and vibration, sulfur dioxide, high humidity and thermal shock. The antenna connector has an operating temperature of-40 to +105C.
