EXTENSION CABLE: RP-TNC Male To RP-TNC Female Extender Antenna Cable

We offer two options of thickness of cable (both are double-shielded, with a black jacket):  All of our RP-TNC cables are are rated for outdoor use and are also 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 cable 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. 
  • Data Alliance's high-quality soldered terminations of RP-TNC connectors with soldering provide a low-loss connection with discontinuities kept to a minimum.

RP-TNC female (right angle) connector includes a bulkhead nut and washer:

  • This can be used 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.

RP-TNC is a round screw-type connector, with nickel-plated brass. 

  • Nickel-plated brass is the best plating-alloy for corrosion-resistance.
  • RP-TNC is similar to BNC except that whereas BNC has a slotted mating collar, RP-TNC has a screw-down type connector. RP-TNC's screw-down connector performs better than BNC in the microwave spectrum.
  • RP=Reverse Polarity. Gender of RP-TNC is counter-intuitive: Click for details.

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

ROHS & REACH compliant:  All of our antenna cables and adapters are in compliance regarding content of toxic materials restricted by RoHS 3 and REACH.

Directory of other RP-TNC cable types

RP-TNC male to female extension cable is easy and quick to install: The RP-TNC male connector fits the jack on wireless routers, and the RP-TNC female connector fits the male connector on antennas with an RP-TNC male connector: Most wireless antennas with an RP-TNC 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. 

COMPATIBILITY: RP-TNC male connector fits older LinkSys & Cisco wireless routers, as well as other items that have a RP-TNC jack/connector.
