Mini-BNC Connectors Increase Wiring Densities

A new range of 75ohm Mini-BNC connectors, engineered by Cambridge Connectors to meet 3G SDI video requirements, can increase wiring densities by up to a third. With a pitch of 12mm, compared to the standard BNC pitch of 16mm, the range is suitable for routing and switching equipment used extensively in video transmission networks. Its small size and weight make it suitable for outside broadcasts and similar confined or portable environments.

A choice of straight, right-angle and printed-circuit-board (PCB) edge mounting styles is available with the additional option of a two-part version offering the opportunity for PCB hot-swapping. Reflection factors (VSWR) range between 1.04 at 1.5GHz and 1.16 at 3GHz, depending on the configuration. With an operating temperature range of -65C to +85C and a contact mating cycle of 500, the range is fully RoHS compliant and comes with a standard finish of brass/nickel.
