V102F-R Sparkplug Launcher Connector

V Female Sparkplug Launcher Connector


The V102F-R mates with either the V100 Bead or the V100B Hermetic Bead.

The center pin to microcircuit interface can be accomplished in one of several ways.

Anritsu has Stress Relief Contacts available ("Sliding Contacts"). They provide protection to the connection in the event of temperature changes, shock or vibration. The V110-1 is used for microstrip and Coplanar waveguide with 0.15 mm trace widths.

When used with Coplanar Waveguide, some engineers use a pin-overlap design, which allows the pin to be soldered directly to the trace. Ribbon bonding can be used to connect the pin to the trace. The pin can also be attached to the trace using silver epoxy.

Several tools are used to manually install the bead and connector. Use the 01-303 soldering fixture to properly position the bead in a housing before soldering. Use the 01-304 Drill & Tap Set to simplify the job of drilling the required concentric holes in the housing. It is used when NOT using Stress Relief Contacts. Use the 01-308 Drill & Tap Set for the same purpose when you use Stress Relief Contacts.

Use the 01-105A Male & Female Sparkplug Torquing Kit to tighten the V102M and V102F connectors into the housing after the bead is installed. We show how to use all of these tools in the Connector's Installation Note.

The V102F-R replaces the V102F
The V102F-R is RoHS compliant. It contains less than the Maximum Concentration Values (MCVs) for Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, PBB and PBDE per EU directive 2002/95/EC. The following RoHS exemption applies: Lead as an alloying element in copper containing up to 4% (40000PPM) lead by weight.

All materials contained in the "-R" version are identical to the materials contained in the obsoleted part. Only the "-R" suffix was added to signify RoHS compliance.
