The 1854 series is a wireless antenna extension cable, typically used to
place an 802.11 antenna at a distance from it's hardware.
For example, if you have a workstation with a PCI wireless card, but get poor
WiFi reception; or if you host a network in your lobby, but have trouble reaching
to the farthest corners; this cable will allow you to separate the broadcast antenna
from the card or router it's attached to, and place it where you'd like.
The 1854 series features a standard-polarity SMA male connector on one end and
a male N-Type connector on the other. SMA is a small connection typically found on
commercial-grade routers and extenders; N-Type is a large connection typically
found on Omni/Yagi antennas and larger equipment.
It's built from RG-58 coaxial wire for shielding and signal strength,
and has a nominal impedance of 50 Ohms. This is the ideal type of
wire for wireless signals, which is a curious thing to say but it makes
sense if you think about it.
We can custom-build this cable in any length you request.
For an extension cable instead of a male-to-male cable,
see our N-Type Extension Cable
or SMA Extension Cable.
Please note that this cable uses STANDARD POLARITY SMA, which is not compatible
with the REVERSE POLARITY SMA found on most consumer-grade wireless electronics.

please consult our RF Wireless Connector Guide.
