Hi, We are using RF connector

Hi, We are using RF connector

Hi, We are using RF connector



We are using RF connector for our audio systems.
One of the specifications of the connector reads as follows.. " Resistance shall not exceed 0.6Dohm at 1 amp at each contact.
I need to know what this spec means and how to go about measuring this parameter. In fact this is the first time
I am hearing the unit "Dohm.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Best Regards

RE: Hi, We are using RF connector

I haven't seen that term either.  Just guessing, I would say that it is deci-ohms (x 0.1), or 0.06 ohms in your case.  I doubt that it is critical if you are using these at audio frequencies.

Don't go to the bank with my reply; I may be way off base.

RE: Hi, We are using RF connector


Hi jwethehman,

60 milliohm around contacts do make sense and I
think your guestimation may be correct although I wouldnt go to the Bank of America to bank this. Anyway I dont
know why some suppliers use Dohm instead of just
0.06ohm or 60 milliohm.
Thanks for your help.

RE: Hi, We are using RF connector

How about "Dynamic"?  When dealing with RF, most resistances change over frequency.  I know that there are special resistors designed to be used at certain frequencies.  However, 0.06 Ohms seems pretty low.

Just a thought.

RE: Hi, We are using RF connector


Hi Melone,

Could be Dynamic resistance also!.
But I thought ordinary reistors(except wirewound) do not change their values unlike capacitors or inductors because they do not possess inductive or capacitive property. Please
bring some light to my ignorance.
Best Regards

RE: Hi, We are using RF connector

Depending on the construction of the resistor, the presence of skin effect can be quite large over frequency.  Unfortunately, I am not a RF guru, but have heard this problem stated by some co-workers.
