GrooveTube® Low Loss Cables

Groovetube

High Reliability RF Cable Assemblies

- Rugged GrooveTube® technology 
- Low loss 
- Phase/amplitude stable 
- DC-50 GHz

This system cable is made with our industry-leading GrooveTube® and is used in any application where low loss and/or phase stability are critical. Uses include phased array radar, electronic warfare radar systems, and high reliability interconnects. MegaPhase's 1 and 2 Series cables are ideal for thermal-VAC and space applications, while the 5 Series is well suited for antenna feed cable and EMC lab test cable applications. Our rugged construction resists torque, pull and crush forces. All GrooveTube® cable assemblies are tested 100% for S-Parameters and each assembly is serialized. Standard test and data includes VSWR and insertion loss. Additional testing options will be quoted upon request.
