At SMA and RPSMA antennas are coaxial connectors, i.e. connectors that have good electrical shielding and low electromagnetic radiation or interference. SMA stands for "SubMiniature Version A", RP-SMA for "Reversed Polarity SubMiniature Version A". SMA connectors have been around since the 1960s. They are specially designed for coaxial cable as a semi-precision interface consisting of minimal connectors and feature a screw-coupling mechanism. They are used in portable radios, mobile phone antennas, WLAN cameras and microwave ovens, but above all for connecting WLAN or GPS antennas in general.
In addition, these connectors can be divided into "male" and "female" - an SMA connector always consists of both. The "male" part consists of the SMA antennasconnection, which is a plug consisting of a union nut with an internal thread and a central metal pin that serves as the inner conductor. The "female" part is the so-called SMA socket, which is located, for example, as a connection in the wall. It is also threaded, but with the addition of a metal tube in the middle that the plug's pin fits into.
Before the first operation, the inner surfaces of both connector parts should be inspected and, if necessary, cleaned either with compressed air or with a gas discharge can. If both surfaces are in good condition, up to 100 mating operations are possible. Care should always be taken to keep the connector straight to avoid bending the pin and your SMA-Antenna lasts long.
SMA antennas - advantages at a glance
By the fact that SMA antennas are designed for coaxial cable, there are some advantages over other antennas:
- Semi-precision, sub-miniature, high-frequency connector provides reliable broadband performance
- For frequency ranges up to 18 gigahertz
- Constant impedance of 50 ohms
- Low reflection
- High mechanical strength
- Long durability
