RPSMA male to female 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.
  • This cable is 1 meter long (3 feet 4 inches).
  • Other lengths of our RP-SMA extension cables from inches to meters.
  • Directory of other RP-SMA cable types
  • 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 coax with black jacket. 

We offer two options of thickness for this cable: Both are rated for outdoor use and suitable for indoor use.

  • The 100-series coaxial cable-type is equivalent or better than LMR100: Has the same or better signal-loss-per-meter and flexibility as LMR100, and less attenuation (signal loss) than RG174 and RG178. The higher quality of the cable of this antenna translates into lower loss/better performance. Cable is equivalent to LMR-100 in thickness. Recommended tightest continuous bend radius is 1.1 inch (28mm).
  • The 200-series coaxial cable type is equivalent to LMR200: It has much lower attenuation (signal loss) than LMR-100 and RG58. Has the same or better signal-loss-per-meter and flexibility as LMR-200.
  • See comparison of attenuation of 100-series and 200-series coax types (signal loss).
  • The double-shielding is a major factor in the higher quality of our cables: It translates into lower loss/better performance. 
RP-SMA female connector includes a bulkhead nut and washer for mounting & waterproofing:
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, SMA RP, SMA R.
  • RP-SMA gender is counter-intuitive: 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.

    Cable is as it was presented. But as a cautionary note, please make sure the connectors are what you need. Unfortunately what I needed was two ends with center pins, and opposite threadings, however I rushed the purchase and must now live with my mistake. Good luck!
