INTRODUCTION: Vector network analyzers require electrically stable cable assemblies for
measurement in very critical areas, such as Phase, Amplitude and VSWR. Cables have to
maintain calibration data, even when subjected to bending and twisting which can introduce
distorting parameters. The cable assembly needs to be flexible without being flaccid.|
THE SOLUTION: Spectrum´s automatic network analyzer test cable assemblies do meet all
the requirements. These reliable test cables offer significant advantages when compared with
standard test cables.
The Cables of Types 18 and 22 are very similar. The only difference is that Type 22 is armored,
using a silicone jacketed fabric interwoven stainless steel spring. The flexibility of the cable
can be compared with regular test cable assemblies. The operating frequency is recommended
to 26.5 GHz.
The cable of Type 16 works to 50.0 GHz. It is a semi rigid type cable, armored with a silicone
jacketed fabric interwoven stainless steel spring. The cable is a little bit on the stiffer side. But
this is highly appreciated for several applications, especially when series of components have
to be tested and when it is welcome that the connectors of the cable assembly remain closely
in the connecting position.
The cable assemblies of Types 16 and 22 will withstand a pull of 22 pounds and are crush
resistant to 880 pounds/square inch without degredation.
CABLE ASSEMBLY CONNECTORS: One end of the Assembly will usually be terminated
with an NMD 2.4mm, 3.5mm, or K* connector, as needed for connecting directly with the RF
output of the network analyzer. These NMD Connectors are designed with a larger than
standard coupling nut for greater stability.|
The other end of the ANA - Assembly may be terminated with any of the connectors, as
needed in the customers test application, mating in direct connection with the device under
test, such as 2.4mm, 3.5mm, 7mm, N, SMA, SPM, TNC, etc. As a large variety of connectors
are available, adapters are not necessary and the test setup becomes simple and trustworthy.
Sensitive tests can be performed, most accurate testing accomplished.
CABLE ASSEMBLY LENGTHS: The cable assemblies can be manufactured in almost any
length, up to 6 meters (20ft.).
PREFERRED ASSEMBLIES: All necessary materials and piece parts will be carried in
stock, helping to facilitate fast delivery. Cable assemblies of the most popular lengths, e.g. 45
cm. (17.7") and 60 cm. (2.36"), terminated with preferred connector styles, such as 2.4mm
and 3.5mm for the Hewlett-Packard 8510 and K* for Wiltron 360, will be available, in most
cases, within a few days of order placement.
THE CABLE ASSEMBLY KIT: ANA Cable Assemblies can be supplied in an instrument
case. It normally contains beside the assemblies a torque wrench, or torque wrenches, as
needed for the different connector styles, hex, and torques required.
