How to Choose the Correct Adapter for Your Helium Hotspot Setup
Since different manufacturers use different connectors on their respective Helium hotspots, antennas and coaxial cables, you are going to need an adapter in some cases in order for your antenna or cable to be compatible with your hotspot.
Below is a simple guide to show you which adapter you will need in different cases. All our antennas have N-Male connectors. Click here if you are unsure which connector your miner has.
So how do you use the table below? Depending on which connector your miner, antenna, and cable has, you will need an adapter to make it compatible. If your Helium miner has a RP-SMA Female connector and you ordered an antenna that has an N-female connector but you already have an antenna cable at home with N-Female to RP-SMA Male connectors, you can still use all the parts together if you use an N-Male to N-Male adapter.
You can see all our adapters here.
