HUBER+SUHNER introduces industry-first connector dedicated to RF-energy applications

HUBER+SUHNER’s RF-Energy connector has been designed to provide optimal power handling and performance. A first of its kind, the RFEX offers users a low-cost solution for high volume RF-Energy applications.

The connector has been designed to handle the mandatory high-power levels in peak demand applications and avoid unnecessary heat generation. The RFEX is able to provide customers with a highly reliable, and long-life solution, which, due to its innovative design, also drastically simplifies the assembly processes.

Previous antenna connectivity issues involving RF-connectors and cables no longer apply, as the RFEX features an antenna which is mounted to the topside of the amplifier housing, making it perfect for connecting rectangular waveguides, dielectric filled waveguides and cooking cavities.

While a significant number of components were previously needed to support RF-Energy related building blocks in applications like RF-Ovens and microwaves, the RFEX is directly integrated into the amplifier housing, significantly reducing size and the number of parts required.
