We’re working hard to bring our comprehensive portfolio of RF Components online to allow quick and easy web ordering. This section houses all the ancillary and passive transmission components required for your project such as coaxial connectors, adapters, distribution, and surge protection.
In addition to Powertec-branded components, we have partnered with industry leaders including Amphenol and CommScope who hold a long legacy of trusted engineered components.
High quality RF components seek to efficiently transfer signal from input to output ports which is indicated by low insertion loss and low VSWR across their stated operating frequency range.
Mechanically speaking, entry-grade components are manufactured from Brass with a Nickel or Gold plating. Those marked Low PIM are generally plated with a ternary alloy such as CuSnZn3 or Phosphor Bronze which are more resistant to wear and corrosion, and inhibit the generation of swarf. Industrial, aerospace, and precision components on the other hand are typically manufactured from stainless steel with a passivated finish.
