  • Mounting Arrangements +


    Mount must be specified when ordering.

    A
     This is a "ring mount"; i.e., the silicon wafer is offered on its ring without output connectors. 

    B  Microdot connector on the rear of the can.

    C  BNC connector on the rear of the can.

    T  Microdot on the side of the can; without adjustable screws.

    Dimensions are given in millimeters.

    §Built into a Microdot connector only.
