Six-Month Cable Guarantee
Mini-Circuits offers a six-month product guarantee for CBL series RF cable. Test cables traditionally undergo tremendous strain due to many connections which are a normal part of nearly every test lab application. Furthermore, a test environment often results in stress on the cable and cable-to-connector interface due to the high number of bends and flexures required during testing processes. Mini-Circuits will repair or replace your test cable at its option if the connector attachment fails within six months of shipment.
PIC Wire & Cable’s MicroMATES™ were introduced in 2012 for Ku- and X-Band assemblies. Learn more about these 50 Ω microwave assemblies engineered with minimum 200°C rating on all materials plus superior components including: Inner flat braid or strip braid, high temp polyimide foil, dual braided shields and silver-plated copper throughout.
