Pasternack 75-Ohm Test Cables Up to 3GHz

By News Release | April 13, 2015

Pasternack 75-ohm test cables up to 3GHz are ultra-durable and offer excellent insertion and return loss.

PasternackPasternack 75 Ohm Test Cables released its newest line of 75-ohm test cables with operation up to 3GHz. These rugged cable assemblies are specially designed to withstand the rigors of test lab use and applications in 75-ohm communications systems. Technicians commonly rely on these high-frequency test cables in technologies such as cable TV, MoCA 2.0, MoCA 1.1, and DOCSIS.

Pasternack’s new series of high-performance 75-ohm test cables are available in two configurations including a type-N male to type-N male or a type-N male to type-F male. Unlike most F connectors readily available on the market, these F connectors are designed to perform up to 3GHz, which greatly broadens the usability and value of these test cables. Moreover, these connectors are threaded to ensure an accurate and secure connection to both the device under test as well as the analyzer. The test cables are suitable for engineering labs, production environments, and quality testing facilities and are a good choice for use with 75-ohm S-parameter test systems.

The new 75-ohm flexible armored test cables from Pasternack exhibit excellent insertion loss of <0.5dB at 3GHz, and typical return loss is 28dB. These new RF cable assemblies are designed with an armored jacket that meets ANSI/SCTE 99 2009 pull force and ANSI/SCTE 98 2009 tightening torque standards and are also capable of 100,000 bends minimum.

“Our new 75-ohm test cables provide customers dealing with cable TV media hardware, set-top box manufacturers, and broadcast engineers a new cost-effective source for high-frequency 75-ohm testing components,” said Steve Ellis, interconnect product manager at Pasternack.
