Magnetic Antenna Base

These magnetic mounts are especially suitable for dipole-type antennas (see photo), which are the very commonly-used omnidirectional antennas with a plastic radome (housing).

COMPATIBILITY AND GENDER DETERMINATION: The gender is referring to the pins inside the connector "barrel" - not the threads. RP-SMA male and SMA-male have threads on the inside:

  • Version with RP-SMA connectors:
    • RP-SMA female connector on the BASE fits antennas that have a male RP-SMA (Reverse Polarity [RP] SMA) jack/connector.
    • RP-SMA male connector on the cable fits items that have a female RP-SMA (Reverse Polarity [RP] SMA) jack/connector.
  • Version with SMA connectors:
    • SMA female connector on the BASE fits antennas that have a male RP-SMA (Reverse Polarity [RP] SMA) jack/connector.
    • SMA male connector on the cable fits items that have a female RP-SMA (Reverse Polarity [RP] SMA) jack/connector

Compatible wireless applications: The connector & cable's range of frequency band compatibility (from DC 0GHz to 18GHz), consistently low broadband VSWR , and impedance matching to 50 Ohm gear, makes this base suitable and compliant for all the following :

This base is heavy enough to hold the antenna straight up even if the surface is not metallic, and therefore is a potential solution in several scenarios:

  • Metallic panel cover or door for equipment cabinet
  • Desk or table: Wood or metal, Formica etc. - does not matter
  • Woodwork like shelving, shelves

Antenna Cable Coax is double-shielded, low-loss and very flexible. The cable-type is equivalent or better than LMR-100: Coax with black jacket has the same or better signal-loss-per-meter and flexibility as LMR100, and less attenuation (signal loss) than RG174. The higher quality of the cable of this antenna translates into lower loss/better performance. These antenna cables are rated for outdoor use and are also suitable for indoor use. You can use RP-SMA extension cables to extend the cable on this mount.

The temperature range for operational use of this 100-series coax and the cable assembly, is: -22 F ~ +185 F (-30 C ~ +85 C)

RoHS and REACH compliant: Compliant with RoHS 3 and REACH restrictions on heavy metals and other toxins, as are almost all of our antennas and a ll of our antenna cables and adapters.

RP-SMA & SMA Connector Characteristics and Details

  • SMA & RP-SMA male and female diameter:
    • RP-SMA male inside diameter is 5/16" (7.9375mm) (the inside diameter where the threads are).
    • RP-SMA female outside diameter is 5/16" (7.9375mm): Accommodates a hex nut (bulkhead nut) with 5/16" nominal outer diameter
  • RP-SMA Gender Determination: Key Points
    • The gender is referring to the pins inside not the threads. RP-SMA male has threads on inside.
    • RP-SMA male has a socket inside rather than a pin (as you might expect), because the RP stands for "Reverse Polarity". The socket/pin configuration is female when it appears to be male, and vice versa.
    • More details regarding RP-SMA gender determination.
  • RP-SMA & SMA Connector Materials Composition:
    • Connector Body: Gold Plated Brass
    • Center Contact: Beryllium Copper, Gold Plated
    • Crimp Ferrule: Copper, Nickel Plated
    • Insulators: PTFE
    • Precision machined for low loss in ISO 9001 facilities
  • Other RP-SMA Characteristics and Key Points
    • RP-SMA-male and SMA-male are also called "plug" and RP-SMA and SMA female connector are also called "jack".
    • We offer an SMA wrench to assist in installing antennas, cables and adapters with RP-SMA or SMA connector(s).
    • RP-SMA-male connector fits items that have an RP-SMA-female connector.
    • SMA and RP-SMA are round screw-type connectors, with medium-sized, threaded coupling connectors that are rated for frequencies from the lowest (DC) up to 18GHz.
    • SMA and RP-SMA connectors are not compatible with the common, commercially available Type F coaxial connector. Type F connectors look similar but are of slightly different size and will not pair with RP-SMA or SMA connectors without an adapter.

    Worked as expected

    No problems, worked perfect. Thought the cable would be a little longer but it ended up being the perfect length for my use.

    smaller than I thought

    For metal wall mount cabinets with routers moving antennas outside is a must, no attenuation of signal and great ground plane for direction, side mount, or full omnidirectional on top of cabinet. after first to in service I have ordered three more. using same antenna from router with out loss.
