4.3-10 RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies

Molex has introduced their 4.3-10 RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies that offer high-performance signal transmission with low passive intermodulation (PIM), 100% data traceability and less torque than current interfaces. Molex's RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies meet the performance needs of next-generation mobile network equipment, in a small form factor. Connector size and weight restrictions have become more stringent so these solutions were designed to be 30% smaller and 70% lighter than DIN 7/16 connectors, which decreased operational expenditures by reducing tower loading. Molex 4.3-10 RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies

Coaxial jumpers and connector interfaces require premium electrical performance and robust environmental capabilities in order to withstand many years outside in the elements. Molex's Cable Assemblies are factory fabricated and consist of a one-piece, patent-pending boot that is weatherproof, making it ideal for outdoor cellular sites.


Features & Benefits:

  • 30% smaller than a DIN 7/16 connector decreases operational expenditure by reducing tower loading.
  • Three mating options for right-angle and vertical plugs (hand tight, quick lock and torque) provides design flexibility, depending on application needs, without compromising electrical performance.
  • Low-PIM performance (160dBc @ 2x43dBm) allows wireless service providers to build networks capable of superior performance.
  • Custom, factory-made low-PIM cable jumper assemblies (12.7mm [1/2”] coaxial cable, 9.53mm [3/8”] coaxial able) eliminates vendors and the need for the customer to assemble.
  • Patent-pending weatherproof boots protects the connection in harsh weather and makes it ideal for outdoor cellular sites.
  • IP68 rated with IEC 60529 standards makes this connector ideal for use in outdoor environments.
  • Serialized cables mean 100% data traceability, which enables quality assurance.
  • Interface already adopted by radio and antenna OEMs and base station equipment will be deployed with new 4.3-10 connectors.
