Sensors and sensor cables
Connecting an increasing number of sensors to electronic products can be demanding and complex, especially when size, performance and cost targets need to be fulfilled. HUBER+SUHNER products are often used when high reliability, extended temperature range, resistance against oil and chemicals, increased shielding requirements, stable electrical properties (capacity, impedance), highest flexibility or other key properties are necessary. HUBER+SUHNER products are increasing reliability as well as stability of the system and simplify installation of the connected sensors.
In other applications, customized HUBER+SUHNER products are directly used as sensors. This may include capacitive or optical sensors based in coaxial or optical products, respectively. Using unique materials may additionally allow for size and cost reduction, as would employing the sensor in locations where standard products do not work anymore.
Besides the sensor itself, the data connection from the sensor location may ask for similar requirements, where HUBER+SUHNER provides a complete portfolio for wired and wireless connectivity.
RF cables (performance line)
The PTFE/FEP cables of our RG/K series are designed for applications up to 200 °C and are characterised by low losses, especially at high frequencies. The Enviroflex cables do not contain fluorine plastics either in the dielectric nor in the jacket and thus provide a robust and environmentally friendly option.
The product series Spuma, S and SX provide lowest attenuation, high flexibility and optimal shielding. Products from the Spuma series are similar to the LMR® products from Times Microwave. The series with LSFH jacket material and the radiation crosslinked SX series with the RADOX® jacket offer extremely high flame protection.
Some products cannot be allocated in any of the three main lines. They are consolidated in the speciality cable line. It includes special designs like odd impedance, twinax or triax cables. A selection of low-noise coax and triax cables is also available. Cables with special qualification, for instance in accordance with railway norms like EN 45545 or in accordance with UL are also listed in this section.
Formable cable assemblies
In applications with limited space, formstable and pre-bent cables and assemblies make life easier by facilitating quick and convenient installation with stable and repeatable quality. They come with either a tubular outer conductor, ideal for customised configurations, or a tin soaked braid, perfect for individual hand form routing.
Thanks to its 100% solid outer conductor, the products stand out from commonly braided cables by providing superior RF shielding, outstanding VSWR and PIM performance.
HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of fiber optical cables, optimised for fix or mobile applications at indoor and outdoor areas. Due to new market demands innovative products are developed and tested in accordance with international standards, which fulfil high mechanical and thermal conditions as well as fire requirements.
