    SMA connector types

    Hello all,

    I've messed up a circuit just a little by ordering the wrong kinds of
    connectors. I expected male and female terms to refer to either insede
    or outside threads, hoewver now I can see that there are four types of
    SMA connector and I pictured them all at
    http://personalpages.manchester.ac.u...am.Chapman/SMA
    types.doc

    Could somebody please tell me the names of each type so I can order
    them correctly this time? Maplin do not stock all the types i need :(

    Thank you
    Adam

    What combination of this is supposed to work?
    In the meantime suggest you look at the connectors here:-

    thanks for the response.
    All together i have made an extremely rough looking drawing at
    http://personalpages.manchester.ac.u...RF%20setup.doc

    It's for a UAV project so there is a circuit on the aircraft and one
    on the ground, the main issues are the ones on the aircraft.

    from your link, i think i need
    3 x CON-SMA-200-PLUG (male pin)
    1 x CON-RSMA-200-PLUG (male connector with female pin)
    on the aircraft

    Tahnks a lot, your link really helped me

    Try to avoid using Male and Female. Plug and Receptacle are somewhat
    less confusing.

    should be a space between "SMA" and "types".

    1 and 3 are RP-SMA (reverse polarized SMA).
    2 and 4 are ordinary SMA connectors.

    You might find it useful to have some adapters and barrels handy:

    those sma connectors are a bitch, as are many other connectors. If I were you I wouldn't
    count on using the correct names when ordering, there's so much confusion out there.
    Having made the same mistake as you I never ever order connectors these days unless the
    supplier provides a nice big clear picture of what I'm buying. Some sellers on ebay
    provide really good pictures so there's little chance of errors.

    Hello,everyone!
    In my opinon,when nut outside and hole inside,the connector is SMA-Female
    when not nut outside but pin inside,the connector is SMA-Male.

    If you want some RF connectors or adapters,pigtails and antenna,please feel free to contact me.

    my view

    In my view, if the nut threaded on the outside and the inside is empty, then the connector is SMA-Female, if the nut threaded on the inside, there is also a pin, then the connector is SMA-Male.

    If you want some RF connectors or adapters,pigtails and antenna,please do not hesitate to contact me.
