Low loss cables for superior demands regarding phase stability, lower attentuaion and better VSWR.This is a newly developed family of cables that are distinct from conventional standard cables through their sophisticated design. They have a dielectrin in the form of specially treated PTFE banding, for instance, and three-layer stripbraid shielding. It is these two components that enable very high demands to be satisfi ed for certain electrical characteristics.
A low loss version also diff ers from the standard type (MIL-C-17) for comparableattenuation - through its much reduced diameter. That means greater flexibility and weight saving.
A standard rule is the formula 5 x outer diameter for a fixed installation in the cable duct or 10 x outer diameter for a flexible application. Torrision forces and tensile forces have not been considered in this statement. For this purpose we recommend contacting our RF experts. Also for questions concerning the drag chain capability.
In this case, several factors need to be defined. Which power is transferred (heat development of the conductors), which loss budget is available to me and which mechanical load comes to the cable.
Talk to our team of experts about their application here as well.
The elspec has been on the market since 1974 and has built millions of cable assemblies. We will find the right solution for your application. There is a way to find the cable first and then the connectors or vice versa.
