Results of crush and bend tests on IW’s TUF-FLEX cable assemblies,
using 2 ft long samples of our 1803 cable. Results show max VSWR
and insertion loss over a frequency range of .04 to 18 GHz.
For crush force testing, the cable was placed between two 1 inch
diameter plates with force applied to the top plate. The same cable
was then tested using successively smaller bend radii to a minimum
bend radius of 1.5”.
Call us today with your project specs and we’ll show you the most
reliable way to get connected in the industry.
