Pasternack has introduced an all new series of low PIM cable jumpers with formable coax. Pasternack is an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimetre wave products.
Designed for low passive intermodulation (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.
Pasternack’s RF cables are available with two different coax diameters sizes including 0.163” and 0.276” while connector options include 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type N, and SMA. Reliable low PIM performance is assured for the life of the assembly thanks to the robust connectors’ TriMetal plating, soldered connection point and precise coaxial cable construction.
Key features of Pasternack’s formable cable jumpers include excellent PIM performance of -160 dBc and 1.25:1 VSWR; between-series configurations with SMA, Type N, and 7/16 DIN connector combinations, or in-series cables using 4.1/9.5 Mini DIN connectors; operating from DC up to 6 GHz depending on the desired configuration; choice of two popular lengths including 100cm and 200cm; custom lengths available upon request; and each assembly 100% RF and PIM tested prior to shipment.
Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack explains that their newest low PIM cable offering addresses the needs of the growing DAS market, with the high performance cables offering OEMs and installers an easy-to-integrate, low PIM assembly 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. RF cable assemblies are available for same-day shipment.
