Extreme flexibility and usability

Thanks to their extremely flexible and smooth design (zero spring back), SUCOFLEX 500 assemblies facilitate calibration setup and handling during measurement.

Unique measurement stability

SUCOFLEX 500 test assemblies set a new standard with regard to return loss, as well as to phase and amplitude stability vs. temperature (no PTFE knee), flexure, movement and tensile stress.

Highest precision and repeatability

Every detail of SUCOFLEX 500 test assemblies has been designed and built to guarantee the most accurate and reliable performance in test and measurement environments.

Rugged cable construction

Empowered by HUBER+SUHNER’s excellence in product design, material and process engineering, the ruggedised construction maximises both crush/torque resistance and bend radius of SUCOFLEX 500 assemblies.

Gentle VNA interface treatment

The 3.5 mm precision connector of SUCOFLEX 500 is very robust and precisely positioned.  This not only boosts accuracy, it also contributes to protecting equipment from wear and damage.

Improved return on investment

SUCOFLEX 500 assemblies are priced lower than comparable high-end products. The cost of ownership is further optimised by their longevity, longer calibration intervals and reduced downtime.

Plug-and-smile Products

SUCOFLEX 526V microwave assemblies for VNA are the first members of the

SUCOFLEX 500 product family. SUCOFLEX 526S, 550V and 550S assemblies will soon widen the range.

SUCOFLEX 526V

 

SUCOFLEX 526V is the only VNA microwave cable assembly worldwide with max. 50 ppm phase variation vs. temperature between +15 °C and +30 °C. It shows no “PTFE phase knee” at +19°C as on conventional VNA test cable assemblies which cause phase variations and unstable measurements in critical laboratory conditions. SUCOFLEX 526V is available in three standard lengths with ruggedised 3.5 mm VNA-style connectors.
