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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
