N type rf connectors

N-type connectors are a type of coaxial RF connector commonly used in radio frequency and microwave applications. They were first developed in the 1940s by Paul Neill of Bell Labs and were originally designed for military applications.

N-type connectors have a threaded coupling mechanism and are available in male and female versions. The male connector has a central pin that is surrounded by a threaded outer conductor, while the female connector has a central socket that accepts the male pin and is surrounded by a threaded outer conductor.

N-type connectors are capable of operating at frequencies up to 18 GHz, making them suitable for a wide range of applications including telecommunications, broadcasting, and military systems. They have a high power handling capability, typically up to 1000 watts, and low VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio) which makes them popular for use in high-performance RF systems.

The connectors are available in a range of sizes and materials including brass, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are also available with different plating options including gold, silver, and nickel.

One disadvantage of N-type connectors is that they are relatively large and heavy compared to other coaxial connector types, which may limit their use in certain applications where space is limited. Additionally, they are not suitable for use in high-vibration environments due to their threaded coupling mechanism which may loosen over time.
