Times Microwave Systems recently introduced the EZ-200-NMH-D no-solder, easy-crimp connector, which replaces the EZ-200-NMH. The new connector features a combination hex/knurl coupling nut, which lets technicians tighten the connector by hand or with a wrench. The connector now is manufactured with tri-metal plating, rather than silver, which eliminates tarnishing while improving electrical performance, the company said. In addition, a ridged landing area on the aft end of the connector provides better grip and sealing of the heat shrink boot, which provides better strain relief and weather sealing, the company said.
