The UTiFORM family of tin-dipped microwave cables, economical alternatives to semi-rigid and flexible cables. Featuring excellent attenuation and VSWR, UTiFORM cables can be used in a variety of commercial and military applications, including satellite and space flight.
UTiFORM employs a lead-free alloy dipped outer conductor that is excellent for repeated forming. This dipped braid construction enables the user to minimize system installation costs, because cables can be easily configured as they are installed.
UTiFORM cables have a higher temperature rating than semi-rigid cables and an equivalent bend radius. They are also extremely easy to use, as they accept standard semi-rigid connectors, and can be cut and stripped with standard semi-rigid machines, and require no tooling.
Because the UTiFORM cables are 100% shielded, they have excellent electrical characteristics. Impedance is 50 Ohms (over a wide DC-95 GHz frequency range). Capacitance is either 27 pf/ft or 29 pf/ft, depending on the cable. Signal delay is either 1.45 ns/ft or 1.32 ns/ft, depending on the dielectric type.
Completely hand-formable, the UTiFORM cables do not require complicated bend specifications and can be reformed a limited number of times with no damage. They have bend radius as tight as .100 inch.
