RTSMAConnector

"RT-SMA" stands for "Reverse-Thread Sub-Minature type A". RT-SMA Connectors are the cousins of SMA-Connectors, and provide identical performance.

Reverse-Thread connectors differ only by the direction of the threading of the outer 'ground' contact used to hold connectors together. In RT-SMAs, the thread is "left-handed", and therefore to create a connection you lock the connector in a counter-clockwise direction instead of the normal clockwise direction.

Reverse-Thread connectors are used on 802.11 gear due to America's FCC requirements (Part 15.203) where by such equipment needs non-standard connectors. Other modified SMA solutions to satisfy the FCC requirements are to either use "reverse-polarity" or "shrouded" connectors.
