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.
