RF Industries' 7-16 DIN Adapter Kit is now available in bronze and silver plating ten years after its initial release. Courtesy: RF IndustriesThe 7-16 DIN connector interface offers technical advantages over the N or SMA connector interfaces for cellular communications. Capable of carrying high power at high frequencies, 7-16 DINs are larger and more precise, offering more stable electrical and mechanical connections with tighter tolerances and improved VSWR performance. The RFA-4013-WB adapter kit with white bronze plating offers a convenient means to bridge type N devices to 7-16 DIN interfaces.

RF Connectors legacy DIN adapters in the RFA-4013 are silver plated. Silver offers exceptional electrical performance and low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) performance. White Bronze plating, also called tri-metal, is tarnish free with excellent electrical performance and low PIM. The hardness of White Bronze plating will stand up to multiple mating cycles. If your application requires frequent coupling and de-coupling and/or if tarnish resistance is an issue, white bronze would be the better plating choice.

All white bronze 7-16 DIN adapters are machined to exacting specifications and compare well with typical silver plated products. All adapters within the 7-16 DIN series are made of machined brass and feature Teflon insulation and silver-plated contacts. This foam-lined, zippered kit contains six adapters:

  • RFD-1652-7 (7-16 DIN Male to 7-16 DIN Female R/A adapter)
  • RFD-1653-7 (7-16 DIN Female to 7-16 DIN Female barrel adapter)
  • RFD-1670-7 (7-16 DIN Male to N Male adapter)
  • RFD-1671-7 (7-16 DIN Male to N Female adapter)
  • RFD-1672-7 (7-16 DIN Female to N Male adapter)
  • RFD-1673-7 (7-16 DIN Female to N Female adapter)

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
