Test Parts Press Release - February 11, 2011
TestParts.com Adds TNC Coaxial Connectors
TestParts.com recently added several new TNC coaxial adapters and connectors.
The TNC (threaded Neill-Concelman) connector is a threaded version of the BNC connector. The connector has a 50 ohm (Ω) impedance and operates best in the 0–11 GHz frequency spectrum. It has better performance than the BNC connector at microwave frequencies. Invented in the late 1950s and named after Paul Neill of Bell Labs and Carl Concelman of Amphenol, the TNC connector has been employed in a wide range of radio and wired applications.
TestParts also sells Reverse Polarity (RP) adapters and connectors. Reverse polarity is a keying system accomplished with a reverse interface, and ensures that reverse polarity interface connectors do not mate with standard interface connectors. Most manufactures accomplish this by inserting female contacts into plugs and male contacts into jacks. Other manufacturers use reverse threading to accomplish reverse polarity keying.
