L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand has introduced a new series of coaxial cable assemblies that feature 402SS cable that can be used in place of semi-rigid coax in applications requiring increased flexibility.
L-com’s new LCCA Series 402SS Cable Assemblies provide an excellent alternative to .141 Semi-Rigid (RG402) style cables. These assemblies offer flexibility without compromising performance and exhibit performance characteristics very similar to semi-rigid coax.
Precision stainless-steel connectors and heavy-duty booting extend the life of these versatile flexible cable assemblies. Additionally, these cables operate up to 18 GHz and include several connector options including male and female SMA and Type-N connectors, Type-N Female bulkhead and male SMA right-angle connector combinations. The 402SS coax cable features a solid center conductor, PTFE dielectric and a silver-plated copper braid outer shield over a silver-plated copper spiral strip inner shield. This multi-layer shield construction provides excellent insertion and shielding performance while providing increased flexibility
“These new spiral strip coax assemblies offer both flexibility and high frequency support up to 18 GHz which is required by many lab and RF test applications and in automated test equipment (ATE) systems,” said Steve Ellis, Product Line Manager.
