FAQ

In case of FAKRA SF, the maximum transmission frequency is 6 GHz.

Power supply is possible in the low Ampere range. This depends on the respective cable and its length.

For FAKRA components, rework kits are available. Rework can be carried out in the vehicle and will take approximately 10 minutes.

A multiple use of the secondary locking depends on the respective connector system. Usually, crush ribs, which support the fixation, are deformed when the secondary locking is closed for the first time. When the secondary locking is closed for the second time, the crush ribs have already been deformed and therefore cannot ensure the fixation.

There are handling instructions available for FAKRA connectors. Please find these instructions under the following link.
