Tag Archives: Cable Assembly

A cable assembly is a group of cables or wires that are arranged into a single unit. Cable assemblies are often used for transmitting power or informational signals and provide the power of several individual cables and organize them in an easier to install package that is also easier to replace and maintain.

A Closer Look at LMR 100 Cable Assemblies

Comments off 693 Views1

Coaxial Components offers in-house custom coaxial cable assemblies using True Times Microwave LMR-100A Cable. This allows Coaxial Components the flexibility to build virtually all varieties of LMR-100 cable and connector options.

LMR®-100A Cable is Ideal for…
• Any replacement drop in for RG-316/RG-174
• Jumper assemblies in wireless communications systems
• Any application (WISP, WLL, GPS, LMR, WLAN, WiMax,
SCADA, Mobile Antennas) requiring an easily routed,
low loss RF cable

LMR® – PVCis designed for low loss general-purpose indoor/outdoor applications and is somewhat more flexible than the standard polyethylene jacketed LMR.

LMR® – PVC-Wis a white-jacketed version of LMRPVC for marine and other indoor/outdoor applications where color compatibility is desired.

Flexibility and bendability are key characteristics of the LMR100A cable design. The flexible outer conductor enables the tightest bend radius available for any cable of similar size and performance.

Low Loss is another key feature of LMR-100A. Size for size LMR has the lowest loss of any flexible cable and comparable loss to semirigid hard-line cables.

RF Shielding is 50 dB greater than typical single shielded coax (40 dB). The multi-ply bonded foil outer conductor is rated conservatively at > 90 dB (i.e. >180 dB between two adjacent cables).

Weatherability: LMR-100A cables designed for outdoor exposure incorporate the best materials for UV resistance and have life expectancy in excess of 20 years.

Connectors: A wide variety of connectors are available for LMR-100A cable, including all common interface types, reverse polarity, and a choice of solder or non-solder center pins. Coaxicom’s SMA, SSMA, BNC, TNC, Type N, SMB, SMC, SSMB and SSMC connectors are in-stock, making quick turnaround timelines for your custom cable assembly requirements. Most connectors for the LMR or RG cables will employ crimp outer attachment using standard hex crimp sizes. Coaxicom’s innovative non-magnetic series connectors are also available.

Cable Assemblies: All LMR-100A cable types are available as pre-terminated cable assemblies.

Get Julian Andrew’s take on Coaxicom’s Cable Assembly capabilities. 

When looking for your next cable assembly manufacturer for upcoming projects, it is important to know what options are actually available. Because many manufacturers specialize in only a few types of connectors and even fewer cable variations.

At Coaxicom, you will always find the most common RF connectors for your assembly, but you can also design virtually any type of cable assembly imaginable.

If you are using multiple types of specialized instruments, you may require a proprietary or very particular connections that your average manufacture may not be familiar with at all.

Coaxicom is different because not only does the company manufacture a huge selection of connectors, but can also create a custom cable assembly that is made to order so there is no need to adapt, or “make-shift”  a connection potentially losing quality and reliability.

When you choose U.S. based and globally distributed, Coaxicom as your cable assembly manufacturer there are just limitless possibilities.

Choose a connector type, quantity, cable type, length and you are ready to go with a cable assembly from the best cable assembly manufacturer in America.

The best part is that Coaxicom’s cables assemblies are crafted by experts with decades of experience.

Coaxicom now also features Microwave Distributors Company (MDC) and Midisco inventory as well.

Plans for First Space Tourists to Circle Moon Delayed Again.

Comments off 1911 Views0

Space-transportation company misses another deadline for putting humans in its Dragon capsule.

SpaceX has indicated it won’t launch a pair of space tourists to loop around the moon this year as previously announced, the latest sign that technical and production challenges are disrupting founder Elon Musk’s plans for human exploration of the solar system.

A new timetable for the flight—now postponed until at least mid-2019 and likely longer—hasn’t been released by Space Exploration Technologies Corp., the formal name of the closely held company.

Over the weekend, company spokesman James Gleeson confirmed the private moon launch has been postponed, without indicating when it might occur. “SpaceX is still planning to fly private individuals around the moon and there is growing interest from many customers,” Mr. Gleeson said in an email.

The delay comes amid SpaceX’s own projections of a nearly 40% drop in launches next year from as many as 28 anticipated for 2018. The decline primarily reflects a global slump in manufacturing orders and launch contracts for large commercial satellites. SpaceX successfully launched the Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla..

SpaceX also is confronting industry doubts about market demand for its Falcon Heavy rocket, the company’s newest and biggest launcher, which had its maiden blastoff in February.  “People don’t think it’s serious enough yet to figure out how to use it,” Thomas Mueller, SpaceX’s chief propulsion technology officer, said in May, speaking to attendees on the sidelines of a space conference in Los Angeles. Mr. Mueller declined to elaborate or respond to questions.  (content pulled from www.wsj.com, The Wall Street Journal, by Andy Pasztor, u

The Cable Assembly of your Dreams!

No Comments 14918 Views0

Maybe saying “Cable Assembly of your dreams” is a little silly, but when you think about everything you go through to get the right cable, it can be a huge pain in the neck. You go to a website and they have the cable type you are looking for, but available in only half the length you want. So you buy a coupler and two cables. Instead of purchasing one item, you now have 3, which is something else you didn’t want to do.

What if you go to the website and they don’t have the cable you are looking for at all and you need to buy various adapters? All you are doing is affecting the performance of an overpriced and shoddily made cable!

Thankfully, you can now build your own cable assembly with Coaxicom! The cable assembly available on the Coaxicom site is the most advanced on the internet! Get the exact cable you want, in the length you want with the connectors you want. With a custom made cable assembly, there will no longer be testing multiple cables, adapting, coupling or jumping through various hoops like you may have in the past!

Get a Quality Cable Assembly, Made in the U.S.A.

No Comments 14762 Views0

For years, people have been choosing inexpensive Imported connectors for their components. Though saving money comes at a price and folks have realized the cash they are saving now comes with consequences down the road. Cheaply made parts not only run the risk of breaking down easily, but the quality of the products affects how they operate as well. Noise, fuzz and interference are much more prevalent in a cable assembly that was made overseas. When lower grade copper, bad insulation and poor manufacturing practices are combined, you get a bad product.

The money that you wind up saving just goes towards the replacement of the cable a few months or a year down the road. When you choose a cable assembly that was made in the U.S.A. however, you not only get the peace of mind of getting customer service you can understand, direct from the manufacturer, but you are also getting a much higher quality cable assembly made by trained professionals.

Not only are you helping a company by buying American, you are also getting the best cables you can get! When you purchase a cable assembly from Coaxicom, you are investing in the future of your devices. By not having the noise and by having the extra durability, you will be extremely happy with the performance of the cable as well as its longevity.

Don’t skimp on the cables! Get a custom cable assembly from Coaxicom today!

Semi-Rigid Cable Assemblies.

Recommended Guidelines for Design & Dimensioning of Semi-Rigid Cable Assemblies.

Comments off 1647 Views0

Semi-Rigid Cable Assemblies Design Guidelines.

Coaxicom has been manufacturing semi-rigid cable assemblies since 1984. We have developed a number of guidelines for the design and dimensioning of cable assemblies that will provide the user with assemblies that are cost-effective, perform well, and are reliable.

We incorporate Coaxicom connectors, or those specified by the user. Some of these guidelines are summarized here, and illustrated below.

For information on cables described or other products from Coaxicom’s broad line of connectors, adapters, terminations, attenuators, phase adjusters, and cable assemblies, contact our Coaxicom Team at 866. Coaxicom (262.9426) or via email to sales@coaxicom.com.

  1. Make drawings full scale.
  2. Use tight dimensioning, but loose tolerances. Tolerances of +/-0.030″ are generally recommended. Cables (except very short ones) are slightly flexible, and can be “walked” into next higher assembly.
  3. Dimension lengths as follows: (a) Straight plugs and jacks: To the reference plane. (b) Bulkhead jacks: To the bulkhead mounting surface. (c) Right angle connectors: To the centerline of the mating surface.
  4. Avoid right angle connectors whenever possible. They are more expensive than straight connectors and perform poorly at high frequencies. Coaxicom can bend cables tightly enough so that a straight plug will have the same profile as a right angle connector.
  5. Avoid bulkhead and panel mounted connectors if possible, to preclude the need for expensive tooling to ensure correct connector orientation.
  6. Dimension straight lengths to the start of bends. A radius to the inside of the cable, and associated angle should be used to specify bends. Radii to the center- line of cables are not measurable. Dimensions that cannot be measured should be avoided.
  7. Design bend radius as large as possible, and make them identical if you can. Minimize the number of cable bends wherever possible. Design cable paths for utility, not appearance. Use gradual S bends, rather than straight runs followed by 90 degree bends.
  8. Use stress relief loops whenever possible on short cable assemblies.
  9. Avoid direct marking. Use hot-stamped, heat shrink tube.

Right-Angle Bend (RAB) Assembly 3221-1-“L” Outperforms SMA Right Angle Connector

Comments off 2524 Views0

Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) – STUART, FLORIDA –  There is little doubt that electrical components in today’s high-tech industries are getting smaller and smaller.  Retrofitting RF connectors to meet increasing frequency requirements often presents a challenge utilizing the standard SMA series.  As a result of the increased demand for better electrical performance, Coaxicom employed design innovation to resolve the conflict between size and frequency.

Typical mitred Right-angle SMA cable connectors cause significant reduction of electrical performance in cable assemblies, particularly at higher frequencies.  Coaxicom’s Right-Angle Bend (RAB) Assembly provides an alternative to the standard right angle SMA coaxial connector with a low-profile device, delivering increased electrical performance at higher frequencies.  The 3221-1-L series of pre-bent right angle assemblies use the center conductor of .141″ semi-rigid cable as the contact.  “L” represents the overall length of the RAB.  This fact, combined with Coaxicom’s ultra-short SMA male, provides the same or a smaller profile than a right-angle connector, but without the performance penalty.

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.  An SMA male to SMA male swept radius cable assembly has a typical VSWR of 1.17 at 18GHz.   User specified lengths to 60” are available.  RAB assemblies also provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters.  RAB assemblies and adapters using other connectors and cables are also available.

Coaxial Components Co3221rp is a Florida-based manufacturer and supplier of RF Connectors, attenuators, terminations, adapters and cable assemblies.  The company serves customers in the telecommunications, aerospace, industrial, energy, transportation and military sectors.  All Coaxicom connectors conform to MIL-PRF-39012 and interface dimensions per MIL-STD-348 or industry standards.  For more information or to order a product catalog, visit www.Coaxicom.com or call 866-Coaxicom or email direct at Sales@Coaxicom.com.
