Flexible 18 GHz low-loss test cables for testing applications introduced by Pasternack

IRVINE, Calif., 10 Nov. 2013. Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a line of flexible 18 GHz low-loss coax cables for test & measurement applications that call for rugged, phase-stable cable assemblies.

These assemblies are terminated with durable stainless steel, and use a 0.195-inch-diameter coax with an expanded dielectric with 83 percent velocity of propagation (VoP) performance to 18 GHz.

These coaxial cable assemblies are made with PE-P142LL double-shielded flexible coax that provides 95 dB shielding and VSWR of less than 1.35:1. A heavy-duty boot and FEP jacket improve strain relief and allow for a minimum bend radius of 1 inch which adds to the durability of these cable assemblies.

Pasternack's line of PE-P142LL test cables come with male-straight and right angle versions of Type N, SMA, and TNC connectors, as well as female bulkhead versions for each connector series.

The LL test cables are available in custom lengths and in standard lengths from 12 to 60 inches. Metric lengths can be ordered in 50, 100, 150 and 200 centimeter lengths. Each assembly is 100 percent continuity, Hi-Pot and RF tested prior to shipment.

The small diameter of these test cables have a tight bend radius while offering low loss and high power. For more information contact Pasternack online at www.pasternack.com.
