F connector

The F connector is an RF connector for coaxial cables, especially for high frequencies up to 5 GHz. It is mainly used in antenna systems and in television and satellite reception technology.

The F-connector is suitable in various designs for 75-ohm coaxial cables with diameters of 4 mm, 5.2 mm, 6.1 mm and 7 mm. The cable diameters for which the plugs are suitable are marked by rings on the outside of the F plug. The outer diameter of the RF connector is 9.2 mm. To achieve the highest possible RF tightness, the connector has a screw cap.
