STUART, Fla., 15 Dec. 2013. Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) in Stuart, Fla., is introducing the 3993-2 phase-adjustable connector with a direct solder solution for RG402, .141 semi-rigid, and ultra-flex cables.

The 3993-2 RF and microwave connector is designed for phase match between two cables as needed for proper system performance. The advanced connector allows for precise manual adjustments to the phase without signal degradation.

The Coaxicom 3993 series of phase adjusters deliver a means of phase adjustment over frequency ranges to 18 GHz. The 3993-2 RF connector has an adjustment range of 180 degrees minimum and a maximum VSWR, with insertion loss of 1.30:1 and 0.42 dB, respectively.

To rectify problematic cable assembly phasing, telecommunications companies have had to search continually for ways to modify existing materials to improve efficiency and match time phasing, Coaxicom officials say.

To develop a seamless conversion, electrical engineers have been challenged to modify cable lengths and phase lengths to achieve the desired results, often by trial and error. The 3993 series overcomes these obstacles by providing a phase adjustable connector.
