Molex Precision 2.4mm
Compression-Mount Test Connectors

Molex introduced its 2.4mm Compression-Mount Test Connectors as an extension of the Precision Optimized SMA Test Connectors (Series 73251) and the high-speed digital testing industry's only vertical PCB launch configuration connector. The 2.4mm vertical test connectors optimize design flexibility through a unique compression-mount configuration that allows users to create test points virtually anywhere on the PCB. These precision test connectors mate to 2.4mm male (plug) connectors, and achieve 50 GHz analog performance or over 20 Gbps digital signals. Designed for ease of use, these connectors reduce installation time by featuring UNF screws to eliminate the soldering process.

Features and Benefits

2.4mm version for 50 GHz analog signals

Provides high-bandwidth performance for high-speed (over 20 Gbps) digital test boards.

The only 50 GHz compression mounted connector on the market.

Unique compression-mount design using two 0-80 UNF screws

Reduces installation time by eliminating soldering from the process.

Accommodates a wide range of board thicknesses including 0.57 to 2.79mm.

Provides a continuous ground connection between the connector and PCB.

2.4mm mating interface

Compatible with network analyzer cables.

Vertical-mount design

Can be located anywhere on the PCB for increased PCB density.

Integrated center pin design

Optimizes interface dimensions after mounting to the PCB.

Provides low reflections for accurate measurements.

Stainless-steel body

Durable housing to withstand over 500 mating cycles

Innovative design includes two 0-80 UNF screws for mounting the receptacle to the PCB, eliminating soldering.
