All-Purpose Test & Measurement Cables
Maury Microwave’s Utility™ series sets a new standard for high-end all-purpose test and measurement cable assemblies. Designed for general testing applications, Utility offers excellent value with its low cost, low insertion loss, excellent return loss, flexibility, and amplitude and phase stability. Typical insertion loss is 0.64 dB/ft (cable only), VSWR maximum of 1.30 (up to 18 GHz, Type N connector) and 1.25 (up to 20 GHz, SMA connector), typical phase stability versus bending of ±3.0° and typical amplitude stability versus bending of ±0.015 dB. Utility is the ideal interconnection for reliable and repeatable measurements when mated with test instruments, including bench-top testing, on-wafer characterization and ATE systems.
Utility cable assemblies are now part of the ColorConnect?family. Following the proposed IEEE high frequency connector/adapter color convention,Utility cable assemblies are among the first commercially available assemblies to offer clear indications of compatibility and intermatability. ColorConnect makes it a simple matter to avoid and eliminate damaged equipment, degraded equipment reliability,degraded performance and lengthy maintenance times due to improper mating (and attempted mating) of incompatible interconnects. Utility RF/microwave cable assemblies are available with N-Type connectors to 18 GHz and SMA connectors to 20 GHz in 24", 36", 48" and 60" lengths (custom lengths are available).
