Threadless Connector System / S pace Saving / L ong Life
Description
Planar Blind-mates connectors are typically used
as a pair or set which is comprised of two connector subassemblies that have a common
mating interface. Generally, a pair contains one
floating blind-mate Interface with spring loaded
inner/outer contacts and the other is a fixed blindmate interface with fixed inner/outer contacts
(Figure 1).
Features
o Threadless Connector Mating - This blind-mate connector series provides threadless connector mating
which is useful when mating an array of connectors on
one RF module to another array within seconds.
o Space Saving - These connectors can simplify RF connections in the most inaccessible regions and high
package density systems where conventional threaded
connector mating is extremely difficult.
The Planar Blind-mate series provides threadless
connector mating which is useful when mating an
array of connectors on one RF module to another
array within seconds. Each connector pair will tolerate typically 0.02 inches per pair radial and axial
offset misalignment and still meet all of its electrical specifications.
Most Aeroflex / Weinschel Planar Blind-mates
designs conveniently mount on any panel using a
standard panel D-hole or most any standardized
hole pattern. Extra heavy construction for long life
even with mistreatment makes these blind-mate
products suitable for panel use.
o Long Life - 1,000,000 typical matings. Excellent for
ATE applications. Non-piloting spring loaded contact
areas provided extremely long life and repeatability.
o Connector Options - Choose from many standard
Connector options such as SMA per MIL-C-39012,
SMK (2.92mm), 2.4mm and SMB.
o Broad Frequency Range - Aeroflex / Weinschel offers
a wide selection of frequency ranges from dc to 40 GHz
including most wireless bands.
o Blind-Mate Fixed Attenuator, Termination & dc
Block Designs - Blind-mates can be configured on
other coaxial products such as Fixed Attenuators,
terminations and even dc blocks.
o Ideal for mass-mount and receiver interface
subsystems where hundreds of high frequency connections need to be made simultaneously.
o New Front & Rear Locking Models - New designs
offer front or rear mounting options.
o Optimized Designs for RF & Wireless Applications

Applications
Ideal applications for these high quality/high frequency connectors range from mass-mount and receiver interface subsystems that house hundreds of high frequency connectors to single connector configurations. In either case these connectors
allow threadless connector mating which is very useful when mating an array of connectors on one RF module to another
array or connector within seconds.
Figure 2 shows a typical application where each connector half contains 7035R series connectors. These connectors contain spring loaded inner/outer contacts which allows for extremely long contact life as well as 0.02 per pair maximum radial
and axial offset misalignment while still meeting all the specified electrical specifications.
Aeroflex / Weinschel offers a variety of standard models which are designed to fit or be configured into a wide range of
applications:
o Pressurized Designs - Model 7008 (page 220) is equipped with a flange arrangement designed to withstand 1000 PSI
of hydrostatic pressure. This model can be mated with another 7008 or any 7034 or 7035 series Planar Blind-mate. See
page 218 for mating applications.
o Rear Locking - Models 7034 & 7034-1 (page 221) are beneficial in applications where there is easy access to the front
of the connector for holding while the cable and connector is added or removed. Rotation is also prevented if the
connector front is inserted in a slot which could allow for easier cable and connector assembly installation.
o Front Locking - Models 7035, 7035-1, 7035R, 7035R-1 (page 222) & 7041 (New..page 223) are beneficial in applications where the cable and connector will be inserted as an assembly into a panel or connector module from the rear.
o Custom Configurations - Other types of Planar Blind-mate connectors such as SMA, SMB, 3.5mm, flange,
microstrip/pc board mount launch, test probes, frequency specific, arrays or interface subsystems can be designed for
your particular application. Refer to page 222-224 for other examples.

PLANAR CROWN® UNIVERSAL CONNECTOR SYSTEM
dc to 40.0 GHz
SMA; Type N; TNC; GPC-7; 3.5mm; SMK; 2.4mm
RoHS
Features
The use of PLANAR CROWN® connectors on instruments,
cables, components/accessories offers the manufacturer
and user the following benefits.
Reduced Downtime - Damaged connectors can be
replaced in seconds without any tools. Repair cost is minimized to that of a single connector. Recalibration, in most
applications, is virtually eliminated due to closely matched
phase, mechanical dimensions and insertion loss of the
replaceable PLANAR CROWN® assemblies.
Versatility - Ability to select different connector types adds
versatility to instruments, cables, systems and accessories.
It offers the end user multiple connector options. Connector
type and sex can be readily interchanged as dictated by the
system/DUT, eliminating the need for adapters.
Superior Electrical Performance than would be obtained
by additional adapters.
Simplified Network and Power Measurements on
non-insertable devices.
Non-rotational Interface - Since the PLANAR INTERFACE has
interlocking teeth, it eliminates unthreading of the connection when the Crown is subjected to a rotational torque. This
feature is especially useful on coaxial cables where one end
unthreads so easily when the cable is subjected to twisting
or flexing.
Torque Independent Connection - A torque wrench is not
required when mating the Crown to the bulkhead. A
reasonable hand tightening of the coupling nut results in an
excellent RF connection. This is achieved by having spring
biased inner and outer contacts in the Crown connectors.
Spring biasing ensures an intimate electrical contact at the
PLANAR INTERFACE. A pilot diameter on the bulkhead
guarantees excellent concentricity.
Axial Isolation of the Center Contact - Any excessive
axial force on the Crown center contact is absorbed by the
spring biasing at the Planar interface end.
Standardized Mounting Holes - All instrument panels
can be fabricated with a standard 3/8" Dia. D-hole independent of the front panel connector type/sex. This
eliminates changes in sheet metal design when different
connector options are requested.
Description
The PLANAR CROWN® UNIVERSAL CONNECTOR SYSTEM is
comprised of two connector halves/subassemblies which
have a common mating interface referred to as the
PLANAR INTERFACE. The first connector half is called the
PLANAR BULKHEAD which readily mounts into instrument
front panels, components and cables. One end of this
bulkhead has a 2.92mm (SMK) male/female primary connector. The other end has a combination of grooves,
external threads and a coaxial PLANAR INTERFACE with a
2.92mm (SMK) airline geometry. The bulkhead operates
mode free beyond 40 GHz. The second connector half,
called the PLANAR CROWN®, has a similar 2.92mm PLANAR
INTERFACE on one end, with spring biased inner and outer
contacts. It has corresponding projections which interlock
with slots on the bulkhead and a coupling nut which
secures the two connector halves, resulting in a non-rotational, torque independent electrical connection. The
spring biased inner and outer contacts eliminate the need
for specifying proof torque and no tools are required to
mate or unmate or break the connection. The primary end
of the PLANAR CROWN® is offered in a variety of primary
coaxial connector configurations such as SMA, Type N,
GPC-7, TNC, 3.5mm, 2.92mm (SMK) and 2.4mm (under
development), thus providing an extremely versatile connector system wherein a connector can be replaced in a
matter of seconds.

1. The Repeatability specifications apply to ten consecutive
disconnections and reconnections of the PLANAR INTERFACE.
In addition to the many advantages of 2.92mm airline connectors the Aeroflex / Weinschel version incorporates a
three slot female contact design resulting in a more ruggedized contact than the conventional four slot design on most
2.92mm connectors.
2. Transmission repeatability includes the repeatability of
the VNA test cable.
OPERATING TEMPERATURE: 0°C to 85°C
CONSTRUCTION: Passivated stainless steel bodies and
coupling nuts. Gold plated beryllium copper contacts.
INTERFACE DIMENSIONS & ADDITIONAL FEATURES
OF PRIMARY CONNECTORS:
2.4mm (Models 7005A-12 and 7005A-13):
Contact Pin Recession: 0 to 0.08mm (0 to 0.003 in)
Applications
SMA (Models 7005A-1 and -2):
Contact Pin Recession: 0 to 0.1mm (0 to 0.004 in)
Front Insulator Recession: 0.23 to 0.33mm (0.009 to 0.013
in)
Aeroflex / Weinschel high frequency SMA connector operates mode free beyond 26.5 GHz and is a superior SMA
connector. It incorporates a wider shoulder on the male and
female mating planes (0.020" typical compared to 0.007" on
standard SMA connectors) and has a 3 slot female contact
instead of the conventional four slot design. Both these features result in a more rugged connector with longer life and
improved repeatability. Unlike many commercial teflon
loaded SMA connectors, these connectors will not cause
premature damage when mated with 3.5mm, 2.92mm and
K® connectors.
Type N (Models 7005A-3 and -4):
Contact Pin Protrusion (N female): 5.18 to 5.26mm (0.204
to 0.207 in)
Contact Pin Recession (N Male): 5.28 to 5.36mm (0.208 to
0.211 in)
The male and female Type N connectors are Precision Test
connectors per MIL-STD-348. They are usable to 22 GHz.
GPC-7 (Model 7005A-5):
Contact Pin Recession: 0 to 0.05mm (0 to 0.002 in)
The GPC-7 connectors are designed per IEEE Std 287.
3.5mm (Models 7005A-6 and -7):
Contact Pin Recession: 0 to 0.08mm (0 to 0.003 in)

Test Instruments - Synthesizers; network/spectrum
analyzers, power meters and many more.
Accessories - Detectors, SWR bridges/auto testers; power
sensors, etc.,
Microwave Cables - Cables constructed with the PLANAR
BULKHEAD connector interface at one end offer the user a
wide choice of primary coaxial connectors offered on the
PLANAR CROWN models. For an instrument such as a VNA,
this eliminates the need for having different sets of test
cables for different connector configurations. Cables with a
built in PLANAR CROWN on the opposite end mate directly
with PLANAR BULKHEADS on instruments, providing an
excellent non-rotational electrical connection.
Special Configurations - The PLANAR BULKHEAD design
can be provided with a built in attenuator or dc block. This
is a useful feature when instrument front ends require a
masking attenuator or need to be protected against dc
voltages. Although the basic mechanical design of the
PLANAR BULKHEAD was intended for panel mounting, it can
be modified to mount directly into other accessories. The
primary connector of the bulkhead can also be modified to
launch directly on microstrip or suspended stripline
substrates.
