Standard Flexible Over 0.150" Diameter Cable

Standard Flexible cables over 0.150 inch diameter offer a moderate weight and flexible interconnect where loss or power may be a concern and cannot be met with smaller diameters. SF-142 cable offers the lowest loss and highest shielding while 142D cable provides great flexibility useful in some test conditions. Stainless steel connectors are available for test cable requirements, please specify stainless steel if required.
