GENDER of RP-SMA and RP-TNC IS COUNTER-INTUITIVE in two ways:
Please observe the photo and see all the notes on "Specs / Details" tab section.
COMPATIBILITY AND GENDER DETERMINATION
Connectors fit items that have a (male) RP-SMA (Reverse Polarity [RP] SMA) jack/connector.
RP = Reverse Polarity
and a (male) RP-TNC (Reverse Polarity [RP] TNC) jack/connector.
GENDER DETERMINATION: GENDER of RP-SMA and RP-TNC IS COUNTER-INTUITIVE in two ways:
Please observe picture & note it is correct.
1.The gender is referring toThe coaxial-cable pins onThe inside--not toThe threads.
2. "RP" stands for reverse polarization: The pins are female when they appear to be male, and vice versa.
RP-TNC is a round screw-type connector. RP-TNC is similar to BNC except that whereas BNC has a slotted mating collar, TNC has a screw-down type connector. RP-TNC's screw-down connector performs better than BNC in the microwave spectrum.
RP-SMA is a round screw-type connector, that is rated for frequencies from the lowest up to 18GHz: This antenna cable is suitable for wireless / WiFi networks: 802.11N, AC, G, A, B. 900MHz, 2.4GHz & 5GHz applications, as well as any other frequency between 0 and 18GHz.
