MilesTek Releases Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen, RoHS/REACH Compliant, MIL-STD-1553 Cables

Aug. 5, 2019

MilesTek, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading manufacturer and supplier of products designed to address military and avionics applications, announced today that it has released a new series of high temperature, low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) cable assemblies for use in demanding mil/aero applications.

MilesTek’s new MSA005-series cables have an operating temperature rating of -30°C to +80°C and feature LSZH jackets making them ideal for use in enclosed areas where PVC’s toxic properties are restricted, including use in military vehicles and enclosed building applications.

Other features include 2-slot and 3-slot TRB & TRS plugs and jacks, bulkhead-style jacks, insulated and non-insulated connector options as well as versions with blunt cut ends. Off-the-shelf lengths range from .03 meters to 6 meters (model dependent) and each assembly is constructed with 0.155" O.D., 78 Ohm, LSZH twinax cable.

 “These new cables satisfy multiple specifications that our customers now require, including the use of low-smoke zero-halogen jackets, lead-free solder, a very high temperature rating, and RoHS and REACH compliance. Furthermore, we stock these cables for same-day shipping, unlike our competitors who require six to eight week lead times for equivalent cable assemblies,” said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.

MilesTek's new LSZH twinax cables are in-stock and available for immediate shipment.
