Test grade cables are desired in applications where multiple connector attachment and continuous flexing demands are a priority. RF Industries now offers a line of 18 GHz precision test cables in standard or custom lengths, suitable for production or lab environments. Featuring high-grade, passivated, stainless steel SMA males with PTFE insulators, this unique cable is configured for low loss and low VSWR. With triple shielding for optimum EMI protection, they are very phase-stable during mechanical and environmental stresses. The cable is also manufactured in accordance with MIL-DTL-17, type IX specification. Other features include high velocity of propagation, wide operating temperature and blue FEP jacket. Armored versions for rugged field applications are also available. RF Industries created these test cables to meet a growing need for test grade cable assemblies.

Electrical data: 50 Ohms impedance, 23.8 pf/ft capacitance, 85 percent Vp, better than -95 dB shielding effectiveness, -55° to +200°C operating temperature and -0.50 dB/ft attenuation at 18 GHz.
