Help me identify this RF Connector
« on: May 08, 2024, 07:26:21 am »
Hi All,

I am trying to find a replacement of connector assembly . At first glance, I thought its a common 7/16 connector to N male But this connector really looks odd. Please help me to identify this:





Here is the a comparison with all other high power connectors I have at hand.



Thanks

Maybe it is custom made. What is it from?

Hi! It looks like a side for cable assembling. Do you have a mating part?

I'd agree it looks like a cable mount connection. Fingers on the inside of the center contact are to slip over the conductor without having to solder to it. (I've done 7/8 heliax, and soldering the center conductor to a contact involved a heat shield for the dielectric, and a torch.)
With some sort of clamping/retention mechanism for the shield missing.

This connector came attached together with a dismantled UHF antenna 225MHz to 400MHz. It was installed on a naval ship. The contractor who dismantled the antenna, must have had removed it on the wrong end instead of removing the N connector. Apparently the cable being used is corrugated type. Cable mount connection, makes sense. Let me see if I can get picture for the mating end.

https://www.commscope.com/product-type/connectors/wireless-transmission-connectors/wireless-radiating-connectors/iteml4nm-f/ is an example of a similar style of connector. Since you mentioned a corrugated jacket, I'm assuming it's heliax, or similar.
