IRVINE, Calif.—Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, has launched a new line of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies that are reported to be well-suited for distributed antenna systems (DAS). The new series of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies consists of 18 standard configurations that deliver PIM levels of less than -160 dBc, the company said in a press release.
The product line is made with lightweight, flexible UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL RF coaxial cable that can operate in temperatures from -55°C to +125°C. They are offered with the following connector types: 4.3-10, 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN and Type-N, which also include right-angle connector options.
According to Pasternack (www.pasternack.com), the cables deliver low insertion loss and excellent VSWR, are 100 percent RF and PIM tested, and come with the PIM test results marked on the cables. In addition to DAS systems, the cables are said to be suitable for indoor wireless systems, wireless infrastructure, multi-carrier communication systems, WISP networks, small cell installations, and PIM testing applications.
