TNC & RP-TNC connector selection
TNC connectors are used mainly with commercial radio products. They are suitable for frequencies up to several GHz. In contrast to SMA or BNC these connectors are more robust and better suitable for heavy cables or antennas. Furthermore TNC connectors are better suited for outdoor use than SMA or BNC.
So-called RP-N plugs are occasionally used in the WLAN area. RP stands for Reverse Polarity, i.e. the inner conductor has a reversed polarity. Instead of a pin you find a cup and vice versa. This causes a little bit of confusion between the terms plug and socket - usually everything with an external thread is called a socket, everything with an internal thread is called a plug, regardless of what the inner conductor looks like.
Many of the plugs offered here are crimp plugs, i.e. they are not soldered on, but the outer braid is placed on a shaft, a sleeve is placed over it and this is then closed with a special crimping tool. The inner conductor is usually always soldered.
