Issue Details

I would like to connect an SMA cable to an NI product.  What is the recommended torque I should apply to the SMA connector?


NI recommends a torque value of 5 to 9 in*lbs (56 to 100 N*cm).  You can find more information on properly torquing connections by viewing RF Connector Care with NI Test Equipment .
