Cable Assemblies:Right angle adapters using the semi rigid cable approach provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters.
, Cable Assemblies rev. August, 19, 2016] – Right Angle cable connectors cause significant reduction in the electrical performance of cable assemblies, particularly at higher frequencies. The 3221-1-L series of pre-bent right angle assemblies uses the center conductor of .141 “semi rigid cable as the contact. This fact, combined with an ultra-short SMA
plug provides the same or smaller profile as a right angle connector without the performance penalty. User specified lengths to 60” are available.
Typical VSWR of these assemblies is 1.10 to 18 GHz, while a similar assembly using a conventional right angle connector is typically 1.30. Right angle adapters using the semi rigid cable approach provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters, which have limited availability. An SMA plug to SMA plug swept cable assembly has a typical VSWR of 1.17 at 18GHz.
Bent assemblies and adapters using other connectors and cable are also available.
