Joint Enables 360° Rotation Of PCB-Mounted Coax

Featuring an extremely wide operating frequency range of DC to 5 GHz, the AMCORJ-PCB-SCA1 device is designed to allow a coaxial cable to be rotated through 360° while connected to a printed-circuit board (PCB). The rotary joint is suited for coiled-cable applications in medical or satellite communication systems and also serves to protect both the cable and the PCB from damage whenever equipment is moved. Manufactured from Alochromed aluminum, the rotary joint incorporates a standard female SMA-type connector and a high-quality bearing to ensure high reliability. It is a rugged, compact device with a diameter of 16 mm and a height of 38 mm. At 5 GHz it has a maximum insertion loss of 0.3 dB and a return loss of better than 16 dB, while at 27 MHz the insertion loss is 0.1 dB and the return loss is 25 dB.
