MCX (f) bulkhead JACK to U.FL JACK switch for cable LP 088
This is a panel MCX (f) switch, which is used to switch the RF output from the internal antenna to the external antenna.
The size of the switch is adapted to be fitted with an LP 088 cable with a diameter of 1.37 mm.
The impedance of the connector is either 50 Ohm with an operating frequency range up to 6 GHz or 70 Ohm with an operating range up to 3 GHz. They are characterized by high reliability and mechanical stability. They are also used as standard connectors in GPS devices, WLAN networks, fixed and mobile communications.
Coaxial cable LP 088:
The LP 088 coaxial cable is compatible with connectors that are applicable to a 1.37 mm cable diameter. Due to its features and size, it is widely used in applications that require high-frequency transmission using miniature coaxial connections. It is suitable for applications involving RF communication equipment, as well as electronic measuring instruments. It is most often used for creating cable adaptors with connectors such as U.FL / SMA / FME / MCX / TNC and others. The resulting cable adaptors are most often used to connect external antennas to eg cellular modules or IoT / NB-IoT / WiFi / GNSS and other RF devices. There are also specially modified types of RF 1.37 cables for outdoor use, which are UV resistant, as well as for use in extreme conditions. There are made of different materials, different qualities.
