Identifying Coaxial Cable Connectors

Identifying Coaxial Cable Connectors

Thurs, 22/4/2015

SMA, SMB, TNC, RP-SMA, RP-TNC, 7/16 connector, N type, N type, MMCX, MCX , 1.0/2.3, HN, FME, SMC

 It can be quite confusing to specify connectors particularly when they can be "reverse polarity" . or "reverse gender". In the good old days, before some bright spark decided to introduce RP types there were just two types of SMA and other similar connectors. The plug had a male pin and the jack had a female pin. Too easy. The reverse SMA plug, RP-SMA plug,  instead, has a female pin (4th pic down) and the reverse SMA jack has a male pin (3rd pic down). Unfortunately there seems to be an increasing tendency to refer to the RP-SMA plug as "RP-SMA male". We use the term RP-SMA plug female pin , because, from what we know of sex, there are no male elements at all in RP-SMA plugs.
