Pasternack Enterprises has introduced a series of low PIM cable jumpers with form-able coax. These new assemblies are designed for low passive intermodulation (PIM) applications including use in black boxes, test equipment racks and cabinets and DAS.
Pasternack’s low PIM-form-able cables are made using a tin-filled braid that produces a hand form-able, solid outer conductor wall, making them perfect for installation into tight places. These RF cables are available with two different coax diameters sizes including 0.163 inch and 0.276 inch and connector options include 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type N and SMA. The robust connectors’ TriMetal plating, soldered connection point and precise coaxial cable construction produce reliable low-PIM performance for the life of the assembly.
The form-able cable jumpers boast PIM performance of -160 dBc and 1.25:1 VSWR. Between-series configurations can be ordered with SMA, Type N, and 7/16 DIN connector combinations, while in-series cables using 4.1/9.5 Mini DIN connectors are also available. Pasternack’s low-PIM jumpers operate from DC up to 6 GHz depending on the desired configuration. www.pasternack.com
