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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
