Molex: Temp-Flex Microwave Coaxial Cables
Coax microwave cable.
Lisle, IL — Microwave Cables from Temp-Flex, LLC., a Molex company, reportedly deliver exceptional electrical performance in military, aerospace and defense, robotics and medical markets, in addition to automatic test equipment.

Temp-Flex microwave coaxial cables are available with either a solid core fluoropolymer resin dielectric (low loss) or an air-enhanced design with a fluoropolymer resin layer applied over dual monofilaments (ultra-low loss) around the center conductor for increased signal speed. High purity fluoropolymer resin offers a low dissipation factor and ensures a lower rate of energy loss. Highly consistent manufacturing processes are used to maintain tight mechanical tolerances yielding extremely stable electrical performance.

Benefits of the low- and ultra-low-loss microwave coaxial cable include: phase stability; tight impedance tolerance: 50Ω ±1Ω; shielding effectiveness: >100dB; tight time delay tolerance; outstanding insertion loss; FEP alternative to PTFE and ePTFE; bandwidth potential up to 110GHz; stability under dynamic conditions; minimal phase change versus flexure; low smoke halogen free available.

Designed for superior monitoring and control of radar, military vehicles, satellite, space, missile, RF ablation and test and measurement equipment, Temp-Flex coaxial cable solutions are insulated with a fluoropolymer dielectric. A helically-wrapped silver-plated copper flat-wire shield and braid are applied to all cable sizes to achieve superior shielding effectiveness. The standard solid core (low loss) construction coaxial cable delivers 70 percent velocity of propagation (VOP), while the air-enhanced dual monofilament design (ultra-low loss) achieves 85 to 88 percent VOP and improved insertion loss at high frequencies.
