Phase-Stable RF Cables Flaunt Impressive VSWR Figures

Pasternack’s latest line of handheld, RF analyzer, rugged, phase-stable cable assemblies consists of 19 models designed to deliver optimal amplitude and phase stability with flexure. They boast a VSWR as low as 1.2:1 and maximum operating frequency of 27 GHz, depending on the configuration. The cables feature a crush resistance of 1200 psi and an operating temperature range from -55°C to +105°C. They are made with silver-plated copper cable conductors, stainless steel-body connectors, a UV-resistant jacket and a rugged, multi-layer armor for crush and torque resistance.


These cables are offered with 7/16, N, SMA, TNC or 3.5mm connector options and each serialized assembly includes test data. They can be used as replacement cables for FieldFox, Site Master, CellAdvisor, and Sitehawk handheld analyzers. Typical applications include field testing, tower measurements, base station analyzers, handheld network analyzers, portable spectrum analyzers, distance-to-fault measurements and site maintenance.
