Between Series Adapter
A Between Series Adapter is a passive RF 2-port interconnect device, which provides a convenient mechanical conversion between two different RF coaxial connector types (e.g., SMA to BNC, or N to SMA). Between Series Adapters are used primarily for RF Test & Measurement applications, either in the factory or in the laboratory. They can also be used in the field in a variety of communication systems applications (e.g., mating an antenna with a type-N connector to a receiver with a type-BNC connector).
