ClearPath™

Clearpath

Low Loss, Flexible Jumper Cables

- Light weight jumpers 
- Low loss 
- "Wet noodle" flexibility 
- Small diameter 
- DC-40 GHz

The ClearPath series cables offer a good trade off of cost versus insertion loss in a simple double braid construction. The cables offer excellent flexibility and can be used where light weight solutions are desired. The cables offer suitable performance when options to an expensive high performance cable is warranted. The cable is constructed using a low density dielectric protected by a flat metalized braid. Applications include automatic test equipment bays, jumpers and switch boxes where the cable will not be ruggedly handled or subjected to extreme environmental conditions. Many standardized connectors are available for interconnect solutions.
