Fairview Microwave has released a new series of high-reliability, temperature-conditioned RF cable assemblies that are excellent for defence electronics, avionics, SATCOM, ECM, IFF and other mission-critical applications.


The company's new low loss, pre-conditioned, high-reliability cables comprise operating frequencies to 18GHz and deliver VSWR as low as 1.35:1. This product line is made up of 128 configurations constructed from three different types of cable, totalling more than 1,400 parts. These cable assemblies are created using thermally pre-conditioned, triple-shielded coaxial cable and captivated stainless steel connectors, which are then constructed using J-STD soldering processes and WHMA-A-620 workmanship criteria. The combination of quality materials, processes and acceptance testing unite to make a highly reliable cable assembly, perfect for applications where the cost of failure is high and performance over time is paramount. These COTS cables are 100% tested and come complete with material lot traceability and test reporting.


“This product series is the second instalment in our full line of high-reliability cables designed to support mission-critical applications that require the highest quality materials and workmanship. Like our series of MIL-DTL-17 Hi-Rel assemblies, the new temperature conditioned, low loss cables are available with same-day shipping,” said Steve Ellis, product line manager.
