To help industry professionals looking for test and measurement assemblies that are durable, accurate and long-lasting, HUBER+SUHNER has launched its 50GHz SUCOFLEX 550S microwave cable assembly – a customisable solution which it says provides the longest lifetime currently available on the market.
The difference is that the SUCOFLEX 550S is available in tailored lengths with immediate availability for stock assemblies and a quick manufacturing turnaround on customised configurations.
With a life-time of more than 100,000 flex cycles, the assembly is the latest addition to the SUCOFLEX 500 family and provides a range of benefits including a high electrical performance with an enhanced mechanical design for durability.
HUBER+SUHNER’s patented rotary swaging technology gives the assembly the flexibility of a stranded inner conductor while maintaining the electrical properties, such as low attenuation factor, of a solid inner conductor.
A longer service life provides industry professionals with an assembly that offers less testing downtime and is more cost efficient.
The assembly is designed to withstand abrasion, pressure and moisture, making it the go-to assembly for customers looking for a precise and long-lasting connectivity solution, and it is suited for numerous test and measurement applications, including bench-top testing, high throughput RF production testing and for vector network analyser measurements up to 50GHz.
“The new SUCOFLEX 550S provides our customers with an excellent price-performance ratio that cannot be found elsewhere in the market,” said Daniel Ulmer, Product Manager at HUBER+SUHNER. “Typically, cables with solid wires will break after a 10-20,000 flex cycles but the SUCOFLEX 550S has a lifetime of more than 100,000 flex cycles. In addition, it addresses the challenge customers have previously faced in struggling to find customised assemblies with short delivery times.”
