ClearComm Technologies now offers “Mini-DIN” connectors, 4.1-9.5 DIN, on our Low PIM products high performance requirements of demanding cellular base stations, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and small cell applications.
The 4.3/10.0 MiniDIN connectors have been designed to match the performance of the 7-16 DIN connectors, but with smaller dimensions comparable to the N-Type connector. The smaller screw-on size and weather resistance allows design-and-installation flexibility for medium to high power indoor/outdoor applications. The 4.3/10.0 DIN connectors also offer low VSWR and low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) for frequencies up to 3 GHz.
These low PIM Mini-DIN connectors are available on our Hybrids, Terminations, Cuplers, DAS Interface (POI) Trays, Combiner Trays, and Low PIM jumper cables. Other connectors available include N-Type, 7-16 DIN, and SMA connectors.
Please contact the factory for the latest pricing and availability.
We are often asked what our model numbers designate. So, here is a brief explanation of our model numbering system:
Example Model# CCFA-433-1W-DCP21 CCDP = Duplexer or Diplexer CCRF = Receive Filter CCTF = Transmit Filter CCCF = Generic Filter, may be Rx or Tx CCFA = Filter Assembly
Example Model# CCFA-433-1W-DCP21 433 = Sequential number in series
Example Model# CCFA-433-1W-DCP21 Connector Code Empty or ‘N’ = Type ‘N’ Female ‘1’ = 7/16 DIN Female ‘1MD’ = 4195 Mini DIN
Rare options are SMA Female
Example Model# CCFA-433-1W-DCP21 Weatherization Blank = Indoor use only ‘W’ = Outdoor Rated to IP68
Example Model# CCFA-433-1W-DCP21 DC Pass Thru Blank = No DC Pass Through, provides DC Short ‘DCP’ = DC Pass 7,8,19 or 21 = Indicates the ports that provide a DC Pass i.e. 700, 850, 1900 or 2100 MHz. May be multiple ports such as 819 or 1921
ClearComm Technologies is committed to offering products with the highest levels of performance at reasonable prices. Low levels of Passive Intermod Products are critical to the performance of today’s networks. The file attached describes ClearComm’s PIM testing techniques and offers some insights into our low PIM designs.
ClearComm is now shipping DAS Interfaces for 700, 850, 1900 and 2100 Bands. We offer a number of unique options including variable attenuation for both Tx and Rx channels, Tx/Tx Combining and Multiple Band Combining.
