Intelliconnect Cable Harnesses and Waterproof Connectors on Show at Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show

UK Manufactured Connectors and Cables Meet Intelliconnect on Stand B73

Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd the UK based specialist manufacturer of RF connectors will be displaying its cable harness assembly capabilities and market leading UK designed and manufactured RF and waterproof connectors at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show at Farnborough in February 2015.

Intelliconnect now offer an extensive low loss RF cable assembly manufacturing service for assemblies using semi-rigid, conformable, LMR and RG cables. Typical applications include security, medical, defence and aerospace, including marine IP68 waterproof, test and measurement, high power amplifiers, RF combiners and filters, multi-beam antenna arrays, phased array radars. These high quality, UK manufactured, bespoke cable assemblies are available for both high-volume or specialist small batch requirements are able to operate from DC to 50GHz. Phase matched cable assemblies may also be specified allowing customers to specify the electrical length in time or degrees at the frequency of operation for a specific cable assembly.

Connector products of note include the extended range of the market leading Pisces connectors which meet IP68 when unmated. The Pisces series now include additional connector and cable termination options suitable for most Coaxial/Triaxial/Twinaxial waterproof connector groups. Pisces connectors are now available in SMA, TNC and N Type cable plug options which may be connected to a wide variety of cables including many LMR, RG, Semi-Rigid and Semi-Flexible cable types.

The product enhancements to the Pisces connector series extend the range of potential applications to include 75 ohm variants for video camera security applications, environmental monitoring ocean buoys, traffic cameras (ANPR), coastguard/HM customs patrol boats, personal locator beacons, military radios/communication systems, environmental monitoring and water management and vehicle tracking. Other potential applications are high quality antennas, personal locator beacons, cochlear Implant devices, petrochemical monitoring equipment, traffic indication systems, environmental monitoring, SCADA (data-loggers etc.),

In addition to Intelliconnect’s renowned fast turnaround custom designed connector service their extensive standard range includes IP67 and IP68 rated interconnect solutions for harsh environments including N Type, SMC, SMA, TNC, Push-Pull and ABMS (harsh environment MCX). The SSMA is a smaller version of SMA which provides higher frequency performance. The male contact is designed to be the same size as the cable conductor so that it can be used as the mating pin for optimised VSWR ((Voltage Standing Wave Ratio - a measure of how efficiently radio-frequency power is transmitted from a power source, through a transmission line, into a load).

The SMC is a low cost high quality connector with a threaded coupling which provides excellent broadband performance with low reflection DC to 10 GHz. It conforms to the interface dimensions of MIL-STD-348 p and offers a form-fit-and-function alternative to other connector sources.

Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors, components and cable assemblies, including waterproof, push-pull, triaxial connectors for medical (dosimetry etc.) applications, dust caps and terminations and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. They also manufacture a large range of coaxial adaptors, to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change. For more information call +44(0)1245 347145, email or visit

About Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd;

Formed in the UK in 2003 in response to the almost complete abandonment of the UK by the RF connector manufacturing industry, Intelliconnect joined forces with a small innovative US operation in 2004 and has quickly become a market leader in design led manufacturing of RF connectors, waterproof multi-pin connectors and cable assemblies. Both the UK and USA divisions of Intelliconnect now enjoy a growing reputation for high quality products and first class service. Their product range includes waterproof connectors which have become established as the solution of choice for specifiers in the marine, oil and gas, defence, medical and general antenna markets. They produce a range of triaxial components which are recognised as the best quality available in the market today. Their Custom design service, which attracts no NRE charges, is the quickest available in the connector industry today. Intelliconnect also offer a full range of standard RF connectors and a cable assembly service.

Intelliconnect is unable and does not wish to compete with the plethora of low-cost offshore product available in the market today. Rather they offer traditional engineering values coupled with innovation, agility and a passion for serving their customers.
