Providing outstanding passive intermodulation (PIM) performance of -160dBc and VSWR of 1.25:1, Pasternack Enterprises has announced a series of low PIM cable jumpers with formable coax. Designed for low PIM, the assemblies are suitable for applications such as black boxes, test equipment racks and cabinets, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and lab testing.

Available with coax diameters of 0.163 and 0.276” and lengths including 1 and 2m, the RF cables have connector options including 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type N, and SMA. Depending on the desired configuration, they operate from DC up to 6GHz.

Reliable low PIM performance, is ensured for the life of the assembly with TriMetal plating, soldered connection point and precise coaxial cable construction. Suited for installation in tight places, the cables are made using a tin-filled braid that produces a hand formable, solid outer conductor wall.

“Our newest low PIM cable offering perfectly addresses the needs of the growing DAS. These 100% RF and PIM tested, high performance cables offer OEMs and installers an easy-to-integrate, low PIM cable for use in tight spaces such as inside a box or equipment rack,” commented Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager, Pasternack.

All assemblies are 100% RF and PIM tested prior to shipment. Pasternack can also supply custom lengths upon request.
