Pasternack Enterprises launched a batch of 18Ghz low loss test cables with 4.953-mm diameter coax that can be used in test environments requiring a rugged, phase stable cable assembly. The PE-P142LL cables are available in custom lengths, standard lengths up to 1,524mm, and metric lengths up to 200cm.

Each cable has a 4.953-mm diameter coax with expanded dielectric to deliver 83% velocity of propagation (VoP) performance up to 18GHz. Made with PE-P142LL coax, the cable assemblies operate at higher power with improved phase stability. The double shielded flexible coax provides excellent shielding effectiveness greater than 95dB 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 25.4 mm which adds to the durability of these cable assemblies. The 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. Customers can specify custom lengths or choose from standard lengths from 12in to 60in, or metric lengths in 50, 100, 150 and 200cm. Each assembly is 100% continuity, Hi-Pot and RF tested prior to shipment.
