- Buyers Guide
The Mini-Circuits QBL Series Coaxial Cables include a Quick-Lock connector that mates securely with a standard female SMA connector with a simple sliding lock feature. These cables are ideal for use in test lab applications, with superior strain relief for lasting durability and flexibility for tight access locations. The FEP jacket supports operation to 105°C and protects a double shielded cable construction for minimum signal leakage.
The Quick-Lock system is as simple as push, slide and click to make a repeatable RF connection. The unique design of the QBL Quick-Lock connector mates directly with a standard female SMA connector, with a contact and guide structure that makes a secure connection to 18 GHz.
Supporting 25 dB return loss at 6 GHz and 19 dB up to 18 GHz, the QBL Series is ideally suited for testing a wide range of RF equipment while minimizing measurement degradation due to the effects of VSWR interactions. Capable of withstanding RF power of 270 W at 1 GHz and 47 W at 18 GHz (at sea level). The QBL Series is a great fit for a wide variety of test and installation applications operating from DC to 18 GHz.
Tested without performance degradation to over 20,000 flex cycles (flexed to stress both the cable and strain relief), the QBL Series is ideal for a wide variety of test applications. Typical applications include high volume production test stations, research and development labs, environmental and temperature test chambers, replacement for OEM test port cables, field RF testing and cellular infrastructure site testing.
