Pasternack Intros Line of Low-Loss Test Cables
Low-loss coax test cables.
Irvine, CA — Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. is introducing a new line of low-loss test cables rated to 18GHz. The low-loss, expanded dielectric coax cables, coupled with durable stainless steel Type N, TNC, and SMA connectors, are suitable for test environments where a rugged, phase stable cable assembly is required.

The new test cables utilize a specially designed 0.3-in. (7.6mm) diameter coax which results in 83 percent Velocity of Propagation (VoP) low loss performance up to 18GHz. These LL test cables are made with PE-P300LL coax, which operates at higher power with improved phase stability when compared to standard flexible cables with solid dielectric cores.

The double-shielded flexible coax cable provides excellent shielding effectiveness greater than 95dB and a maximum 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 1.5-in. (38mm) which adds to the durability of these cable assemblies.

The company's new line of precision RF test cables are used for many applications including prototyping in test labs, production line testing, and antenna range testing. The cables can be ordered in custom lengths and are also available in standard lengths from 12 to 60-in. Metric lengths can be ordered in 50, 100, 150 and 200cm lengths.
