Amphenol Industrial Products Group now offers an outdoor connector designed for use in harsh environments. This new optimized base transceiver station (OBTS) connector helps meet the need of remote wireless radio power delivery.
Based on its predecessor, the Amphe-BTS, with 3 million installed worldwide. Amphenol has reduced the weight of this field-installable connector by 30% and added improved passive inter-modulation (PIM) performance. This reliable connector addresses the need for higher current that is being driven by modern high-performance remote installations.
Ideal for use in cell towers, wireless radios and wireless networks, the Amphe-OBTS maintains the legacy and performance of Amphenol's original BTS, which provided power from a wireless, mast-mounted base station to a remote radio head. This compact, energy-efficient connector is UL qualified to 26 A.
