Nautilus range expands with new IP67 rated right angle SMA connector

We’ve expanded our range of Nautilus connectors with the introduction of a IP67 right angle SMA connector.

IP67 right angle SMA

The right angle version is bulkhead mounted an includes an external o-ring to prevent ingress through the panel, coupled with an internal seal which stops moisture entering through the centre contact achieves an IP67 rating.

The Nautilus connectors are offered as part of a full cable assembly, the most popular options for the other end of the cable assembly are Hirose U.FL or IPex MHF connector types which normally mate with Wi-Fi, GSM or GPS communications modules.  However we offer a huge variety of connector options for the other end of the cable, all the way from tiny micro connectors, such as I-Pex MHF4, through to larger bulkhead connectors, such as N and TNC.  We can also supply in many different coaxial cable types.

This link takes you to the main GradConn website and the specific resource page for the right angle SMA connector, where you’ll find a PDF drawing, 3d model and links to build and request cable assemblies.

We have a wide range of Nautilus IP67 rated SMA connectors, with many straight bulkhead versions and also PCB mounted variants.  The full range of cable mounted waterproof connectors, including SMA types here.   PCB mounted SMA connectors are here.
