    RP-SMA to RP-TNC-Male adapter

    Posted by H.Rogers on 7th Sep 2015

    The parts were received on time and worked well to adapt a high-gain antenna to a LinkSys router.

    Needed to adapt an sma antenna to a Cisco AP1242ag. This adapter did the job.

RP-SMA female To RP-TNC male Adapter

RP-TNC Male to RP-SMA Female Adapter for antenna cable:

  • Adapter has RP-SMA (female) connector on one end and RP-TNC (male) connector on the other end
  • Allows interconnection of devices with RP-SMA male and RP-TNC female interfaces: Antennas, antenna cables and wireless devices.
  • Use for Coaxial extension, coaxial interface conversion, coax retrofit applications
  • Nickel-plated brass body for enhanced corrosion resistance: This is the most weather-resistant, corrosion-resistant plating for outdoor environments.
  • Gold plated center contact for reduced signal loss.
  • High quality adapter from ISO 9001 facilities.
  • Nickel-plated brass body for enhanced corrosion resistance: Nickel plating is the most weather-resistant, corrosion-resistant metal plating.

Compatibility with wireless standards and applications: Our RF antenna cable adapter's range of frequency band compatibility (from 0GHz to 18GHz), consistently low broadband VSWR, and impedance matching to 50 Ohm gear, makes them compatible and compliant for all the following standards and applications:

Adapter materials composition:

  • Connector Body: Nickel-Plated Brass, which is the most corrosion-resistant of all plated brass alloys (better than gold-plated).
  • Center Contact: Beryllium Copper, Gold Plated
  • Crimp Ferrule: Copper, Nickel Plated
  • Insulators: PTFE

RoHS and REACH compliant: All of our antenna cables and adapters are compliant with RoHS 3 and REACH restrictions on heavy metals and other toxins.

RP-SMA female Characteristics and Details

  • 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.

TNC Connector Characteristics and Details:

  • Nickel-plated brass is the best plating-alloy for corrosion-resistance.
  • TNC is similar to BNC except that whereas BNC has a slotted mating collar, RP-TNC has a screw-down type connector.
  • TNC's screw-down connector performs better than BNC in the microwave spectrum.
  • High quality connectors, precision machined in ISO 9001 facilities.
  • Gender of TNC and N connectors is counter-intuitive.
