Pasternack Releases New Line of 0.195″ Diameter Low-Loss Test Cables
Low-Loss Test Cables by Pasternack
Pasternack Enterprises introduced a new line of flexible 18GHz low-loss test cables. These new assemblies are terminated with durable stainless steel connectors and are well suited for test environments where a rugged, phase-stable cable assembly is required.
Pasternack Enterprises’ new low-loss test cables utilize a 0.195” diameter coax with an expanded dielectric, which results in 83% Velocity of Propagation (VoP) performance up to 18GHz. These coaxial cable assemblies from Pasternack are made with PE-P142LL coax, which operates at higher power with improved phase stability. The double-shielded flexible coax provides excellent shielding effectiveness greater than 95 dB 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 one inch, which adds to the durability of the cable assemblies.
Pasternack’s new line of PE-P142LL test cables can be ordered 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 new LL test cables from Pasternack can be ordered in custom lengths and are also available 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% continuity-, Hi-Pot-, and RF-tested prior to shipment.
“The smaller 0.195″ diameter of these test cables have a tighter bend radius while offering low loss and higher power when compared to solid dielectric cables,” said Steve Ellis, interconnect product manager at Pasternack. “These cables offer our customers a high-performance solution when choosing a low-loss cable assembly.”
