Pasternack adds low PIM cable jumpers
Low PIM cable assemblies leverage a proprietary, formable semi-rigid coax design.
Pasternack Enterprises (Irvine, CA), a manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has introduced a new series of low passive intermodulation (PIM) cable jumpers fashioned with formable coax. These new assemblies are designed for low PIM applications including use in black boxes, test equipment racks and cabinets, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and lab testing.
Pasternack’s low PIM formable cables are made using a tin-filled braid that produces a hand formable, solid outer conductor wall, making them perfect for installation into tight places. These RF cables are available with two different coax diameters sizes including 0.163” and 0.276” and connector options include 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type N, and SMA. The robust connectors’ TriMetal plating, soldered connection point and precise coaxial cable construction produce reliable low PIM performance for the life of the assembly.
The formable cable jumpers boast outstanding PIM performance of -160 dBc and 1.25:1 VSWR. Between-series configurations can be ordered with SMA, Type N, and 7/16 DIN connector combinations, while in-series cables using 4.1/9.5 Mini DIN connectors are also available. Pasternack’s low PIM jumpers operate from DC up to 6 GHz depending on the desired configuration. These RF cable assemblies are available for same-day shipment in two popular lengths including 100 and 200 centimeters (cm). Custom lengths are available upon request with slightly longer lead times depending on the customer’s specific needs. Each assembly is 100% RF and PIM tested prior to shipment.
“Our newest low PIM cable offering perfectly addresses the needs of the growing DAS market,” explains Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack. “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.”
The new low PIM cable jumpers with formable coax from Pasternack are in-stock and available to ship now. Additional information can be found at http://www.pasternack.com/pages/Featured_Products/low-pim-cable-jumpers-with-formable-coax.htm.
