This is our high performance workhorse series in the MilTech™ product line. These rugged, low insertion loss, broadband (0.5-18GHz), vapor sealed, cable assemblies with braided Nomex™ outer jackets for abrasion resistance, are qualified to MIL-T-81490 and MIL-C-87104/2 requirements.

Cable sizes from 0.13" dia up to 0.65" diameter provide a wide range of cables - allowing you make the appropriate loss/size/weight trade-off. Replaceable connectors allow field maintenance, and enhanced versatility. Vapor sealed cables provide long life in extreme environments.  The MilTech™ cables are "inherently ruggedized," and are engineered using the basic cable design and construction to enhance the handling characteristics of the finished assemblies. Captivated contact terminations provide long-term interface stability. These assemblies were designed from the ground up to provide reliable microwave connections you can count on.

MilTech 160 - Sized for optimum performance up to 40 GHz.

MilTech 210 - Versatile 18 GHz cable provides lower loss with a small outer diameter.

MilTech 230 - Versatile 18 GHz cable sized to allow loss and size trade-offs.

MilTech 265 - Versatile 18 GHz cable sized to allow loss and size trade-offs.

MilTech 300  - Versatile 18 GHz cable sized to make maximum use of the M8 Multi-Port Interconnect system.

MilTech 340 - Optimized for low loss, 18GHz performance with great handling characteristics, this is the most popular MilTech cable.

MilTech 480 - Lower Loss performance to 10 GHz, this cable uses a stranded center conductor to enhance the "installability."

MilTech 650 - Low Loss with high power handing ability, this is a very specialized - and the largest - MilTech cable in the standard family.
