Crystek Armored Low-Loss RF Coaxial CablesCrystek has ruggedized its LL142 low-loss RF cable assemblies by incorporating a spiraled stainless steel casing, along with extra fortification provided by heavy-duty adhesive strain relief with a Neoprene jacket. This added measure of protection eliminates the failures commonly caused by cable flexion and compression. At 18 GHz, the new Armored LL142 assemblies feature attenuation of 0.36 dB/ft. and VSWR characteristics of <1.3.

Crystek’s Armored LL142 Series cables offer shielding effectiveness of greater than -110 dB with an operating temperature range of -55 to +85ºC (extended range of -55 to +125ºC available through special order). The cables feature rugged stainless-steel solder-clamp construction and a minimum bend radius of 1.5 in. with minimal spring-back.

The Armored LL142 Series cables (model number CCASMA-MM-LL142-xx) are available in four standard lengths – 24-in., 36-in., 48-in. and 60-in. – with SMA Male to SMA Male connectors. Custom lengths and configurations (Type N and TNC connectors) are also available. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corporation.
