Pasternack Low Profile, Right Angle RF Test Cable Line Up to 27 GHz

New SMA, Type N and TNC Test Cable Boast 1.25:1 Typical VSWR and 69.5% Phase Velocity

We just launched a new family of right angle test cable with low profile design. These 16 unique test cable assemblies cover a frequency range from DC to 27 GHz for the SMA versions and DC to 18 GHz for the Type N and TNC connector cables. The right angle SMA and Type N connector cable incorporate an internal radius design that optimizes performance in a low profile configuration.

These RF test cables are also available in 0.086” and 0.141” diameter double shielded, silver plated copper braid over silver plated copper tape, coax designs. Our PE-141FLEX is a flexible RF cable alternate to RG402, 0.141” diameter semi-rigid coax and has a solid PTFE dielectric resulting in 69.5% phase velocity. PE-086FLEX is a flexible RF cable alternate to RG405, 0.086” diameter semi-rigid coax. The smooth wall formed by the braid over spiral ribbon design allows for a flexible cable that has similar performance to a solid wall semi-rigid cable.

The new Pasternack high performance right angle test cable versions have typical VSWR of 1.25:1, low insertion loss, and also boast high isolation in excess of 90 dB. Additionally, Pasternack’s new testing cable assemblies have an operating temperature range of -40° to +150°C and stainless steel connectors that have a minimum lifespan of 500 mating cycles.
