A manufacturer of interconnect devices introduces Amphe-BTS, a power that provides power from a wireless, mast-mounted base station to a remote radio head. This compact, energy-efficient connector from Amphenol Industrial meets the strict requirements set forth by the next generation base stations.
This field-installable connector is said to eliminate need to ship heavy cable assemblies around the world. The company says its Amphe-BTS provides 360° EMI shielding with grounding fingers and uses a bayonet locking mechanism that guarantees strong vibration and shock resistance. The connectors are lightning resistant due to their excellent conductivity. The receptacle has crimp contacts and the plug has screw termination contacts for easy field installation and replacement.
This circular connector, based on MIL-C-26482 series 2, features a brass shell construction with tin over nickel plating, making it corrosion resistant and compliant with ISO 21207. The unit has a cable sealing range of 7 to 18 mm, a temperature range of -55 to +85°C and is available in a standard two-way 48 Vdc, a two-way reverse gender 48 Vdc and a three-way 400 Vdc/250 Vac power configuration.
