SUCOFLEX® TVAC - The cable assembly for thermal vacuum application

In space product testing environment Test + Measurement support equipment with special features are needed. Devices under test (DUTs) in thermal vacuum chambers have to be connected with the test-equipment outside the chamber. Also satellites under test in vast vacuum test chambers need to be connected with RF-assemblies for testing. Outgassing requirements according to ESA-PSS-01-702 is a must. Contamination of the devices under test from solvents of plastic materials has to be avoided as they can lead to corrosion of the content of the thermal vacuum chamber.

The pressurization and depressurization of all components in the vacuum chamber, including the support equipment such as the cable assemblies, happens fast and within well defined parameters – this requires venting holes for non-hermetic components. With such holes in the connectors and defined evacuation paths in the cable and the

connector interface the best venting characteristics can be achieved, resulting in fast and non material-stressing adaptation to the applicable pressure.

Thanks to their good mechanical properties HUBER+SUHNER’s SUCOFLEX TVAC cables are ideally suited to such applications when combined with connectors with the strongest mechanical design. HUBER+SUHNER provides microwave cable assemblies and an RF-adaptor specially designed for these applications.

Features

  • Extended temperature range
  • Low outgassing according ESA-PSS-01-702
  • Assemblies:
    – Superior mechanical and electrical stability
    – Vented connectors for fast evacuation and venting
    – TVAC assemblies with NOT vented connectors also available
    – Different connectors, frequency ranges, electrical features available
    – Other configurations according to customer requirements available
  • Adapter:
    – Hermetically sealed
    – Superior return loss performance

Low Loss Microwave Cable: SUCOFLEX 400

The new SUCOFLEX 400 microwave cable family has been specifically developed for industrial, medical, test and measurement and ground defence applications, where the lowest loss, highest performance, best phase stability versus temperature and phase stability versus bending, excellent return loss and mechanical stability are of the utmost importance.

There will be a steady roll-out of SUCOFLEX 400 products for specific relevant markets starting with the SUCOFLEX 404 with straight male SMA, N, TNCA, QN and PC35 with quick mate also with straight female PC35 connector, which are available now.

Current RF systems for medical, defence and space applications must comply with the highest demands, so it is essential that the accompanying connection components meet the highest standards too. The new SUCOFLEX 400 family meets these demands.

Semi-Rigid Cables

The semi-rigid cable is unique due to its easily bent-to-finished shape which maintains its set after bending. Versatile applications: low-noise amplifiers, a full range of microwave components, aerospace applications and a variety of high performance laboratory instrumentation. Semi-rigid cables provide greatly extended environmental parameters.

SUCOFORM Cables: Handformable

SUCOFORM microwave coaxial cables offer distinct mechanical advantages over semi-rigid cables. They are based on the same design as the standard PTFE-insulated semi-rigid cables, but have a tin-soaked copper braid for the outer conductor, giving them outstanding hand formability.

These cables combine the excellent characteristics of semi-rigid cables with those of flexible coaxial cables. Thanks to their small bending radii, they allow space-saving routing and packaging.

Features and benefits

  • excellent properties: low loss, high screening effectiveness, high operating frequency, high temperature range
  • due to the high phase stability over every production run, SUCOFORM is especially suitable for delay lines
  • good flexibility: easy handforming without tooling; fits into the smallest systems
  • comprehensive connector range; use of standard semi-rigid connectors
  • quick and easy assembly
  • available in long lengths and various versions
