When it comes to test and measurement, SUCOFLEX 500 assemblies guarantee the highest level of satisfaction. Not only are they extremely flexible and easy to use, thanks to their unique design, they also deliver best-in-class phase and amplitude stability with flexure, movement, temperature and tensile stress.
Phase stability vs. Flexure
Phase stability vs. Temperature (15°C to 30°C)
min. 20 dB Return loss up to 26.5 GHz
Thanks to their extremely flexible and smooth design (zero spring back), SUCOFLEX 500 assemblies facilitate calibration setup and handling during measurement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
