TNC RF Series

TNC RF SeriesThe TNC, an acronym of Threaded Neill-Concelman, was invented in the late 1950s. It is a threaded version of the BNC, has a 50 Ω impedance, and operates best in the 0 - 11 GHz frequency. Some precision versions support up to 18 GHz. It can offer better performance than BNC at microwave frequencies. TNC connectors can operate within a wide temperature range, typically from -65°C to +165°C, making them suitable for extreme environments. These are commonly used in applications where durability and robustness are critical, such as in telecommunications, aerospace, and military equipment.
