The Cable Assembly division of Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd, the UK based specialist manufacturer of RF connectors, can now provide customers with its own brand of semi-flexible 0.085” (I405) and 0.141” (I402) cables designed to compete with Multiflex, T-Flex and Flexiform cables and suitable for industrial, defence, security and test system applications
Intelliconnect semi-flexible cables offer a lighter, more flexible alternative to semi-rigid types making system assembly and interconnection easier. Any small reductions in performance compared with semi-rigid cables are more than compensated for by competitive pricing and compatibility with standard semi-rigid cable connectors.
Similar to TFLEX 402/405, the Intelliconnect “Spiral Strip” shielded coaxial cables are flexible alternatives to semi-rigid coax and the unique shielding configuration offers a cost effective, low attenuation option. The use of strip/round braid composite shields results in low transfer impedance levels.
The 50 ohm construction exhibits the same attenuation characteristics as M17/130-RG402 and M17/133-RG405 cables. All the Intelliconnect Spiral Strip Shield coaxial cables have VSWR characteristics that meet or exceed similar size flexible constructions. The I402 and I405 cable types have been designed with diameters over the outer braids of 0.141” and 0.086” and have an operating temperature range of -55 to +200°C
Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect, comments,” Having our own brand of semi-flexible cables continues our aim of providing high-quality, competitively priced RF and waterproof connectors, cables and cable assemblies with assured sources of supply. We will continue to invest to ensure we have the products our customers require and maintain the product quality and customer service that we are reknown for.”
In addition to custom cable assemblies, including cryogenic cables, Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors and components, including waterproof and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. Intelliconnect also manufacture a large range of coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change etc. Typical applications include MIL and aerospace, marine, oil and gas, medical and general microwave markets.
