The PE-P300LL series of low-loss coaxial cables has been developed for test applications from DC to 18 GHz. Available with a variety of different terminations, including stainless-steel Type-N, TNC, and SMA connectors, these phase-stable cable assemblies use a specially designed double-shielded, 0.3-in.-diameter coaxial cable with improved velocity of propagation through 18 GHz. The shielding effectiveness (SE) is better than 95 dB while the maximum VSWR is less than 1.35:1. A heavy duty boot and FEP jacket improve strain relief and allow for a minimum bend radius of 1.5 in. The cable assemblies are available in standard lengths from 12 to 60 in. and standard metric lengths of 50, 100, 150, and 200 cm.
