RP-SMA Female to Male Antenna Cable

  • One end has a RP-SMA male connector, and the other end has a RP-SMA female connector with bulkhead nut & washer for mounting and weatherproofing.
  • Other lengths of our RP-SMA extension cables from inches to meters.
  • The cable length stated in the length options is the length between the connectors.
  • The connectors are straight RP-SMA male and straight RP-SMA female connector with bulkhead.

Cable is double-shielded, low-loss and very flexible/easily bendable. 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 LMR-100, and less attenuation (signal loss) than RG174. The higher quality of this antenna cable coax translates into lower loss/better performance. Cable is equivalent to LMR-100 in thickness. This cable is rated for outdoor use and is also suitable for indoor use. Impedance is 50 Ohms.

RP-SMA female connector includes a bulkhead nut and washer for mounting & waterproofing:
  • You can use this hardware to mount the connector (and thus the cable) on the wall of a network enclosure (to weatherproof the cable connection), or mount the connector on a case, panel or Printed Circuit Bard (PCB).
  • Weatherproofing: Seal the hole where the female connector is mounted, by placing an O-ring between the wall of the enclosure and the bulkhead nut & washer on the female connector.
  • The length of our standard RP-SMA female connector (threaded part) is 3/8 inches. We have a longer option: 14.5mm, which is available as an option. The longer 14.5mm option has an O-ring embedded in the flange to waterproof the port where the cable enters a network enclosure.
  • The 18-inch version has the option of the elongated RP-SMA female (14.5mm) and this option also has an embedded o-ring embedded in the flange: Part# RSm18iRSfLo
  • All of our cables with SMA and RP-SMA female connectors have bulkhead mount hardware.
RP-SMA female and male diameter:
  • RP-SMA female outside diameter is 5/16" (7.9375mm): Accommodates a hex nut (bulkhead nut) with 5/16" nominal outer diameter
  • RP-SMA male inside diameter is 5/16" (7.9375mm) (the inside diameter where the threads are).
RP-SMA Connector Materials Composition
  • Connector BodyGold Plated Brass
  • Center Contact: Beryllium Copper, Gold Plated
  • Crimp Ferrule: Copper, Nickel Plated
  • Insulators: PTFE
  • Precision machined for low loss in ISO 9001 facilities
RP-SMA Connector: Other Characteristics & Details
  • RP-SMA = Reverse Polarity SMA. Also known as SMA-RP, SMA-R.
  • RP-SMA gender is counter-intuitive: Please observe picture & note it is correct. The gender is referring to the pins inside-not the threads. RP-SMA male has threads on inside. More details regarding RP-SMA gender determination. 
  • RP-SMA female connector is also called "jack" and RP-SMA-male is also called "plug."
  • RP-SMA is a round screw-type connector, with medium-sized, threaded coupling connectors that are rated for frequencies from the lowest (DC) up to 18GHz.
  • We offer an RP-SMA wrench to assist in installing antennas, cables and adapters with RP-SMA or SMA connector(s).
  • 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.

Compatibility with wireless standards & applications:  

Our RP-SMA extension cables range of frequency band compatibility (from 0 to 18GHz), consistently low broadband VSWR, and impedance matching to 50 Ohm antennas and cables, makes them suitable and compliant for all the above applications.

ROHS 3 and REACH: All of our antenna cables are compliant with ROHS 3 and REACH restrictions on content of lead, other heavy metals and toxic materials.

RP-SMA male to female extension cable is easy and quick to install: The RP-SMA male connector fits the jack on most WiFi routers, and the RP-SMA female connector fits the male connector on antennas with an RP-SMA male connector: Most WiFi antennas with an RP-SMA connector have a male connector. The extension cable enables placing the antenna further from the router, in the most suitable place for line of sight.

    Perfect cables for us

    Posted by Bryon on 21st Mar 2018

    We were putting our Symbol Wireless Access points inside a enclosure and wanted the antennas on the outside of the enclosure and these cables worked perfectly. we drilled 3 holes in the enclosure and then inserted the Male end through and used the bulkhead nut and washer to secure the cables. then we attached the cable to the AP and the Antennas to the male end outside the box. the cables are very high quality and we experienced no signal loss. i was also happy with how quickly they shipped. would definitely buy from this supplier again.

    Exactly what I needed

    Sparkfun discontinued their similar product - and this is a well built inexpensive replacement. Service from Data Alliance was extremely helpful, personal, and fast
