RF cable adaptor (pigtail) SMA(f) bulkhead/open, cable RG174
SMA (f) adaptor (pigtail) - with RG174 series cable, length and 2.8 mm diameter. The adaptor is designed for the frequency range of the SMA 0-18 GHz. The SMA connector has a guarantee up to 500 cycles.
Cable adaptors (pigtails) then serve as an extension for connecting eg 2G/3G/LTE/Wi-Fi/GPS antennas to various PCBs, modules, Mini PCI cards etc.
• Cable type RG174: diameter 2.8 mm
• Connector A: SMA(f) panel
• Connector B: optional
• Certification: RoHS
Connector A - Connector SMA
These are high-frequency connectors with screw connection mechanism. The characteristic impedance of the connector is 50 Ohm and the operating frequency range up to 18 GHz. There are two types of SMA connectors, namely SMA and RP-SMA. The SMA connector includes an O-ring that enhances water and dust sealing properties. Most of the current cellular routers are equipped with SMA connectors for connecting Wi-Fi/2G/3G/LTE/GPS antennas terminated by proticates. It is also used as a standard connector in RF measuring technology. They are characterized by high reliability, durability, high mechanical stability and optimal electrical properties

Coaxial cable RG174
The cable labeled RG174 / U is a basic variant of a coaxial cable that is compatible with connectors applicable to a cable diameter of 2.8 mm. The characteristic impedance of the cable is 50 Ω. The reduction factor is fixed at 0.66. The most common cables of this type have a temperature range of -20 to 80 °C.
It is most often used for creating cable adaptors with connectors such as BNC/FAKRA/FME/MCX/MMCX/N/SMA/SMB/SMP/TNC and others. It is ideal for short and bending stressed connections in measuring and telecommunications technology, for GPS/GSM/WLAN antennas, antenna leads etc. There are also specially modified types of RG174/U cables for outdoor use, which are UV resistant, as well as for use in extreme conditions. There are made of different materials, different qualities.
