50ohm Terminators Question

  • 1.  50ohm Terminators Question

    Posted 13 days ago

    Afternoon everyone, 

    I am looking to deploy 11 AP-518's for a customer. While we've done a number of outside AP deployments with internal antenna's. This is our first project using external antenna. In reading the details for the ANT-3x3-5712 5Ghz 11.5dBi antenna, I see that 50ohm terminator is required.

    Fine, however I seem to be google search challenged in finding a 50ohm RPSMA male terminator rated for 5Ghz (I have since found that some terminators are rated for up to 6Ghz). I can find 50ohm RPSMA  for 2.4Ghz easy enough. 


    Can someone post a link on where I can source the correct terminator (US source pls). 

    Here is a RPSMA 50ohm male, however I can't tell what the Ghz rating is. 

    Amphenol RF 132360RP

    This looks like exactly what I need, however I'd prefer to source it state side.

    Thanks.

    That Amphenol terminator should be fine. Most terminators support frequencies from DC to 50GHz, so any reputable 50 ohm RP-SMA terminator will do.
    Pasternack is another great source for stuff like this.

    Thanks Onno for the prompt reply. 

    I had check out Pasternack, but I left like I was going in circles there. 

    This one small item was holding things up. lol. 

    Cheers,
