Molex showcases Temp-Flex coaxial cables
Molex Inc. will be showcasing new products from Temp-Flex LLC, a Molex company, at the Military Communications Conference (MILCOM 2012) October 29th through November 1st in Orlando, Florida, booth 634. Designed for high-bandwidth applications using proprietary processes, Temp-Flex microwave cables deliver exceptional electrical performance in military, aerospace and defense, robotics and medical markets, in addition to automatic test equipment.
“Our flexible microwave and RF coaxial cables are engineered to meet or exceed the stringent requirements for a range of rugged industrial and military applications,” states Jeet Sanyal, engineering manager, Temp-Flex. “Customers trust Temp-Flex standard and enhanced coaxial cable solutions to deliver the reliability and performance they need – and faster, more competitive lead-times.”
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.
Additional benefits of Temp-Flex low and ultra-low loss microwave coaxial cable include:
- Phase stability
- Tight impedance tolerance: 50 Ohms ± 1 Ohm
- Shielding effectiveness: > 100 dB
- Tight time delay tolerance
- Outstanding Insertion Loss
- FEP alternative to PTFE and ePTFE
- Bandwidth potential up to 110 GHz
- 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.
