Pasternack Releases All New Line of Armored RF Coaxial Test Cables

Flexible Armored Test Cables up to 20 GHz New from Pasternack Enterprises

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and global supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces all new line of flexible, armored SMA and Type-N test cables, designed to handle harsh industrial environments common in production test systems and antenna ranges.


Pasternack's armored test cables utilize stainless steel connector construction, with the SMA designed to operate to 20 GHz and the N connector to 18 GHz. These new RF test cables from Pasternack are available with in-series configurations only. A robust mechanical connector/armoring interface and strain relief boot increases the overall durability and life of the test cable. The company's armored test cables are built using PE-P142LL coaxial cable which is triple shielded with an expanded PTFE dielectric, guaranteeing low loss performance.

These new SMA and N-Type armored test cables are manufactured with a flexible, but rugged stainless steel armoring which allows RF signal integrity during test, even when exposed to high traffic production environments. The armored coax used in Pasternack's designs is more flexible than other commonly available armored cables and is specifically intended for continual bending and flexure without causing degradation to the signal.

"Production testing is a harsh environment that demands tough and durable test equipment and reliable measurement capabilities," explains Gerry Camacho, Vice President of Technical Marketing at Pasternack. "Pasternack's new armored assemblies provide a low loss, precision cable that will handle continual cycling with abrasion and crush resistance in punishing test conditions."

The new armored test cables from Pasternack are available in standard and metric lengths and available to ship now. You can browse the available options and detailed specs on Pasternack's website or by visiting For additional inquiries, Pasternack can be contacted at +1-949-261-1920.
