Cables for RF testing
21 February 2018, Interconnection

A new range of semi-rigid RF/microwave cables and assemblies is available from Huber & Suhner that offer ultra-high frequency of more than 26 GHz.

Key products in the range are the high-quality flexible SucoFlex 126E coaxial cable assemblies, which are designed to provide enhanced optimal performance at up to 26,5 GHz (depending on connector interface choice) with excellent return loss. The cables are ideal for applications that require electrical stability and low loss, such as in test and measurement and defence systems. They also feature a blue polyurethane (PUR) outer jacket, which offers excellent chemical and abrasion resistant properties and advanced protection in the most hostile environments including those with wide temperature ranges from –40°C to +85°C. The high-grade assemblies are available in various lengths and connector types, including 500 mm and 1000 mm lengths.

The range now also includes the Minibend 50 Ω SMA plug-to-plug cable assemblies. These are designed for applications requiring low-profile connections between RF modules within communication systems. Available in 7,5 cm, 15 cm and 30 cm versions, the triple shielded cables have a robust high-temperature FEP outer jacket, stainless steel outer braid and an aluminium/polyimide barrier tape.

Also available are the TLP-P 11716 high-flex test leads, which are 50 Ω TL-P passive intermodulation (PIM) test assemblies. They are constructed from chemical-, oil- and abrasion-resistant TPU armoured cable for protection in hostile environments, and also include moulded protection between connector and cable supporting IP67 ingress protection, when mated correctly. The optimised 4 GHz test leads are available in many various lengths and connector configurations.

Alternative test leads include the Sucotest ST18A armoured cable assemblies, which are 50 Ω flexible leads that offer excellent electrical performance combined with low insertion loss, stability and exceptional return loss. Ideal for heavy duty and outdoor applications up to 18 GHz, the assemblies are designed for a range of applications including the testing of wireless communication infrastructure and are available in a variety of lengths and connector configurations.

The portfolio also includes IP68-rated black silicone universal weather protection boots for LISCA jumper cable assemblies.

They are designed to protect jumpers between antennas and remote radio heads from the ingress of water, contamination and corrosion.
