Type N Coupling Nut Change

API Weinschel has incorporated a modified Type N coupling nut design which incorporates a ¾” hex, at no additional cost. This will apply to all standard Weinschel Type N components. The previous coupling nut (Figure 1) only had a knurl on a round body. The new coupling nut (Figure 2) has both a knurl and a ¾” hex. This change ensures that our Type N connectors preserve the exact same form, fit, and function of our previous connector design, but with the added benefit of having ¾” flats to allow for torqueing with a wrench. This is especially advantageous in high power test and precision test component applications. The majority of sales for these components support these applications where proper torque for good connector repeatability is crucial.
