was developed in 1986 at Hewlett-Packard by Julius Botka and Paul Watson. There was no need for compatibility with the SMA, and any corresponding requirements could be left without consideration. The 2.4mm is available in all three quality standards for production, instrumentation, and metrology. The 2.4mm series precision connector can be used from DC to 50GHZ and its design looks like a 2.92mm at first glance.
This connector is constructed with stainless steel corrsions-restistant passivated and berylium copper per ASTM-B-196 gold plated materials. The precise thread of the coupling nut ensures excellent high frequency characteristics and a reliable high frequency connection.
There are different versions for housing installation and for use with printed circuit boards. The user can choose between two tolerance grades:
Economic or production grade / lab or instrument grade. The 2.4mm series is connector compatible with the 1.85mm series, unfortunately not compatible with the 2.92mm, 3.5mm and SMA series. For this task our adapters 2.4mm to SMA or 2.4mm to 2.92mm help. Our Stormflex series patch cables are also very popular.
