2.2-5 SERIES

In the future, mobile networks will require RF signal transmission to be implemented with tighter space constraints, less losses and the lowest interferences with regard to passive intermodulation. The IEC introduced 2.2-5 series has taken the successful concept of the 4.3-10 series and turned it into a smaller design to meet the small cells and 5G requirements.

Compact Low PIM RF Connectors for Mobile Radio Communications

The 2.2-5 series are new deveploped RF connectors in downsized design
to meet the tight space conditions of small cells in mobile applications.

COOPERATION Cooperation of
leading RF manufacturers

Series 2.2-5 is being jointly introduced by 7 leading RF manufacturers:
Developed by Telegärtner
Co-Developed and successfully field-approved by Kathrein and SPINNER Supported by Molex, Amphenol, Commscope, JMA and Gigalane

  • to-Telegaertner
  • to-Spinner
  • to-Molex
  • to-Amphenol
  • to-Commscope
  • to-JMA
  • to-Gigalane

Bundled competence

Field Approved Design, Kathrein: With more than 150,000 connector pairs already in our antennas out in the field, we are extremely confident that the 2.2-5 connector series is set to become the standard for applications where the 4.3-10 is too big.

application FUTURE PROOF
DESIGNED FOR 5G

2.2-5 series meets the demands of compact mobile communication applications

#
#
#

Small Cell

Small Cell equipment requires less power and space.

#

DAS
Distributed Antenna System

Modern Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) have an increasing demand for higher data rates for Indoor Applications where space and capacities are critical.

#

MIMO
Multi-Band Antennas

More flexibility is possible for design of Antennas thanks to the smaller form factor of the 2.2-5 Interface (Higher Frequency and Higher Data Rates).

FEATURES COMPACT DESIGN

Adapting the proven 4.3-10 connector design by miniaturizing to the 2.2-5 series.
2.2-5 series has the form factor of a TNC with electrical performance similar to series 4.3-10.
