Antenna Connectors

N-Type Connectors

The N-Type connector is commonly found on large form factor antennas or bi-static technology using a separate port for transmit or recieve on the actual antenna. The most common configuration will use a N-Type Female on the antenna that can be connected with a cable using a N-Type Male connector. Below are examples of this connector both male and female as well as the readers and antennas that use the N-Type connection.

 

  • Note: To order the correct antenna cables check what connector is used on your intended reader and what connector is used on your intended antenna. The most common configuration for a cable will require a RP-TNC Male to connect to the reader and then the appropriate end to connect to the antenna of your choice. 
  • To order the correct the cable for your application choose the opposite gender for the cable connectors vs. the ones used on the reader and the antenna. 
  • For example if the reader uses a RP-TNC Female and the antenna uses an N-Type Male (Motorola setup); then the cable should have a RP-TNC Male with an N-Type Female connector.
