For Test and Measurement Cables Featuring GrooveTube® Technology
Engineers and technicians challenged to maintain fully functioning testing facilities while keeping tight inventories rely on MegaPhase to deliver critically needed test and measurement (T&M) cables. To meet rapid delivery supply needs, MegaPhase is offering a Quick-Turn Express TM program for its full line of T&M cables featuring its advanced GrooveTube® Technology. There is never an expedite charge at MegaPhase.
It’s our goal to help testing laboratories function efficiently by supplying high performance T&M cables to meet not only rigorous production environments, but demanding customer production schedules! The Quick-Turn ExpressTMprogram is backed by the guarantee that if it doesn’t ship on time,MegaPhase will pay the cost of the freight.
GrooveTube® T&M cables address three importantcriteria for testing RF and Microwave components and systems: phasestability, insertion loss stability and repeatability of measurements forthe cable’s useful life. This enables MegaPhase customers to calibratemost test sets with rate of recurrence far less than competitive products,and therefore achieve the “lowest cost per measurement“TM and more reliable test results.
MegaPhase’s GrooveTube®cables feature:
- A super-flexible outer conductor. This results in repeatable, reliable performance over time because the outer conductor does not fatigue when flexed like traditional braid/foil outer conductors and stiff corrugated copper types.
- Superior phase and amplitude stability during flexure because the inner conductor stays in the center of the outer conductor – where it belongs. The insured concentricity maintains impedance and low SWR.
- Low VSWR and Insertion Loss because each connector screws directly on to GrooveTube®, the outer conductor, and then the seam is 100% soldered versus other cable brands terminating to small strands of braid.
Mechanical benefits include:
- Smaller bend radii. Cables can be repeatedly bent to 0.5 in with minimally degrading RF signal.
- Crush Proof. Inherent in GrooveTube® is a crush-resistant armor that withstands over 150lbs/in2 of plane compressive force.
- Pull Resistance. Strong mechanical termination at connectors, armor varieties and packaging options mean these cables are very difficult to pull apart.
