Pasternack Adds Line of RF Coaxial Test Cables

May 23, 2013. Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, has added a new line of SMA and N-type Test Cables, suitable for testing applications requiring low insertion loss and operating frequencies up to 26.5 GHz.

Pasternack's new RF test cables are specifically designed for environments requiring highly durable test cables, but where expensive ultra-stable cables are not required. The new coaxial test cables are available in both in-series and between-series configurations. These cables use male versions of SMA (26.5-GHz) and N (18-GHz) connectors, and Pasternack’s own PE-P141 type coax, a flexible version of 141 semi-rigid coax. Each test cable is constructed with durable, machined, stainless steel connectors and come standard with a double-shielded coax and FEP jacket.

Pasternack’s new SMA and N test cables are used for many applications including prototyping in test labs, production line testing, and antenna range testing. These rugged RF cables are a cost-effective solution for various types of production testing, eliminating the need to buy more expensive versions. Testing cables from Pasternack are available in standard lengths from 12 to 120 in. and can be ordered in 12-in. increments. Metric lengths can be ordered for each series in 100-, 150-, and 200-cm lengths.

“Our new lines of N-Type and SMA test cables using our PE-P141 coax are a great addition to our growing range of test and measurement products,” said Gerry Camacho, VP of technical marketing at Pasternack. “We are pleased to offer our customers lower-cost test cable options without sacrificing performance or degrading the materials used.”

The new selections of test cables are in-stock and available to ship now.
