Phase invariant cable assemblies
The HUBER+SUHNER CT product family is developed for phase critical applications requiring precision electrical length connectivity. Thus, it creates a stable and reliable interconnect solution to satisfy a huge range of customer applications where phase stability is key. These products provide the industry leading phase vs. temperature performance, as well as a unique range of cable constructions to fulfil any customer demands.
Depending on the application, there is a broad variety of product lines available:
- Sucoform CT - Hand formable, form stable cable with tin soaked braid outer conductor
- EZ CT - Form stable cable with tubular, aluminum outer conductor
- Minibend CT & MINI141 CT - Flexible cable assemblies Minibend style with bend-to-the-end connector termination
- Multiflex CT - Flexible alternative to Semi-Rigid microwave cables
Mini 141 CT
Minibend CT cable assemblies use lightweight flexible cables. All utilize triple shields for superior RF shielding, with a foamed fluorine polymer dielectric increasing velocity and avoiding the PTFE knee for superior phase stability over temperature changes. The flat wire braid outer conductor provides low loss plus excellent insertion loss stability with flexure. The stainless steel outer braid provides improved mechanical pull strength when compared to cables with a copper wire outer braid.
Cable used for Minibend CT cable assemblies comply with MIL-PRF-17 and are also especially suitable for space applications.
