Standard Flexible Under 0.150" Diameter Cable

Standard Flexible cables under 0.150 inch diameter offer a lightweight and flexible interconnect where loss and power is not a concern. SF316 (115) cable offers the lowest loss and highest shielding while 316D cable provides great flexibility, useful in test conditions. Stainless steel connectors are available for test cable requirements.
