2.92 mm Adapters
2.4 mm Adapters
Thorlabs offers a variety of electrical adapters including five types of BNC adapters, four types of SMA adapters, two types of SMC adapters and three types of banana adapters as well as several BNC to SMC and SMA to BNC adapters. We also offer microwave cable adapters, BNC terminating brackets, and SMA DC blocking filters. All connectors on this page feature a 50 Ω impedance.
Calibrated torque wrenches are available to ensure that the proper mating torque is supplied when connecting two SMA, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm, 1.85 mm, K, or V coaxial connectors.
Thorlabs also supplies 76-piece and 62-piece BNC and SMA electrical adapter kits.
Thorlabs offers four types of BNC adapters in different configurations, as well as one BNC adapter with 6" test clips. We also offer two brackets with two BNC interfaces each; please note that the bracket is made of aluminum and the ground of both connectors is the same. These adapters feature a 50 Ω impedance.
Thorlabs offers four types of SMA adapters and a wide-bandwidth DC blocking filter incorporated directly into an SMA feedthrough connector. The DC blocking filter is used for applications where a DC offset is problematic, and it has a frequency range of 7 kHz to 23 GHz. The insertion loss is less than 0.5 dB in the 100 kHz to 12.4 GHz range, and 0.75 dB in the 12.4 to 23 GHz range. These adapters feature a 50 Ω impedance.
Thorlabs offers two types of SMC adapters: female to female, and male to male. Both allow interfaces of the same type to be connected. These high-grade, durable adapters have gold-plated brass bodies, gold-plated beryllium copper centers, and PTFE insulators. These adapters feature a 50 Ω impedance.
Thorlabs offers four types of SMA to BNC adapters, which provides compatibility between any SMA connector and BNC connector. We also offer male-to-male and female-to-female adapters for BNC and SMC cables. These adapters feature a 50 Ω impedance.

These microwave cable adapters are designed to change the gender or connector type of microwave cables and connectors. They include in-series adapters (F-F, F-M, M-F) for 2.92 mm and 2.4 mm, as well as between-series adapters for all gender combinations of 2.92 mm and 2.4 mm cables.
These adapters feature a 50 Ω impedance. For detailed specifications, including interconnector compatibility, please see the full web presentation for our Microwave Cables.
Calibrated torque wrenches are available to ensure that the proper mating torque is supplied when using these adapters.
