Molex Precision 2.92mm
Compression-Mount Test Connectors

Molex Precision 2.92mm Compression-Mount Test Connectors are designed for 40GHz analog signals. Introduced as a low cost alternative to the 2.4mm version, the 2.92mm version features a unique compression-mount design using UNF screws and vertical launch configuration. The 2.92mm Compression-Mount RF Test Connectors deliver unparalleled design flexibility by allowing designers to create test points virtually anywhere on the PCB. Compatible with network analyzer cables, the 2.92mm Compression-Mount Test Connectors mate to 2.92mm male (plug) connectors commonly found on cable or adapters in test equipment.

Features and Benefits
