Precision test adapters
RF Industries' P2RFA-4031-01 kit features 3.5 mm precision adapters for microwave and RF use.
The P2RFA-4031-01 kit features three 3.5 mm precision adapters for microwave and RF use. They are housed in a compact, foam-lined, zippered case for convenience and protection of the components when not in use. These adapters and the RFA-4031-01 adapter kit have been added to the RF Connector product line for use in microwave and RF applications. All 3.5 mm adapters in this series have 50 Ohm impedance and are made of non-magnetic 303 stainless steel with beryllium copper contacts supported with a bead configuration. They are designed to operate up to 34 GHz with a VSWR rating of 1.05+.006 f (f-GHz) max and have the same electrical length. 3.5mm series coaxial connectors and adapters inter-mate with SMA and 2.9 mm connectors and are used primarily on test equipment. Female contacts feature a four-slot configuration, ensuring that pressure is distributed evenly during the engagement of the male pin, a design which, when combined with a shortened male pin, eliminates misalignment during engagement.
Adapters in the P2RFA-4031-01 kit include RF35M-35M-00000 male-to-male, RF35F-35F-00000 female-to-female, and RF35M-35F-00000 male-to-female. The RF35M-35F-00000 male-to-female functions as a connector saver to prolong the usable life of test ports.

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.
