Low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies

25 August 2021 Interconnection

Pasternack recently expanded its ever-growing line of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies using its Superflex cables, as well as popular cable offerings from Times Microwave that are ideal for use in wireless infrastructure installations, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and other low-PIM applications. These new cables are available in standard and custom lengths.

Pasternack’s expanded offering consists of over 400 unique configurations that boast PIM levels of less than -160 dBc. Cable options now include SPP plenum-rated, 1/4-inch Superflex, SPF fire-rated, SPO outdoor-rated and flexible TFT-402 and TFT-402-LF options. These are highly durable cables constructed from a solid centre conductor and are available in standard diameter options. The assemblies are offered with the following connector types: 2.2-5, 4.1/9.5, 4.3-10, 7/16 DIN, Type-N, NEX10 and SMA, which also include right-angle connector options.

These high-quality cables deliver low insertion loss and excellent VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio), are 100% RF and PIM tested and ship with the PIM test results marked on each cable. These low-PIM cables are ideal for indoor wireless systems, wireless infrastructure, multi-carrier communication systems, WISP networks, small cell installations and PIM testing applications.
