Low loss COTS cables operate in frequency bands to 18GHz
Provider of on-demand RF, microwave and millimetre wave components, Fairview Microwave, has released a new series of high-reliability, temperature conditioned RF cable assemblies that are well suited for military electronics, avionics, SATCOM, ECM, IFF and other mission critical applications.
Fairview’s new low loss, pre-conditioned, high-reliability cables cover operating frequencies to 18GHz and deliver VSWR as low as 1.35:1. This product line is made up of 128 configurations built from three different types of cable, totalling more than 1,400 parts all available with same-day shipping.
These cable assemblies are constructed using thermally pre-conditioned, triple-shielded coaxial cable and captivated stainless steel connectors, which are then assembled using J-STD soldering processes and WHMA-A-620 workmanship criteria.
The combination of quality materials, processes and acceptance testing combines to make a highly reliable cable assembly, ideal for applications where the cost of failure is high and performance over time is paramount. These commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cables are 100% tested and come complete with material lot traceability and test reporting.
Steve Ellis, Product Line Manager, said: “This product series is the second instalment in our full line of high-reliability cables designed to support mission critical applications that require the highest quality materials and workmanship. Like our series of MIL-DTL-17 Hi-Rel assemblies, the new temperature conditioned, low loss cables are available with same-day shipping.”
Fairview Microwave’s new Hi-Rel, temperature conditioned, low loss cable assemblies are in-stock and ready for same-day shipment with no minimum order quantity.
