Fairview Intros New Low-Loss Cable Assemblies
Low-loss cable assemblies.
Allen, TX — Fairview Microwave, Inc. is introducing a new line of low-loss test cables using LL335i and LL142 coax. Rated to 18GHz, these new low-loss cable assemblies are suitable for test environments where a rugged, phase stable cable assembly is required.

The new LL335i and LL142 cables allow for higher power transmission because the resulting higher temperatures do not have a negative effect on the cable; this is because of the thermal stability of the PTFE tape dielectric. Where phase stability requirements are critical, the new low-loss cables allow for a 75 percent lower phase shift because of their precise construction. This cable configuration offers attenuation levels 20 to 35 percent lower than comparable mil-spec cables.

The new RF cable assemblies come equipped with a choice of stainless steel TNC, SMA and N-Type connectors and a heavy-duty booting to improve strain relief. These low loss test cables from Fairview are made with LL335i or LL142 coax, which operate at higher power with better phase stability than do traditional cables with solid dielectrics. A double shielded flexible coax provides shielding greater than 95dB and VSWR of less than 1.35:1.

According to the company, these low loss, phase stable, double shielded cables offer engineers and technicians improved performance over standard RG-type cables in a rugged design, suitable for heavy-use test environments where repeatability and stability are paramount.
