Solution Times: Solving Test Lead Problems

March 2, 2022


It pays to use quality products, including test cables. Typical test leads on the market often suffer a host of quality issues including cheap connectors that break and poorly designed strain relief. Some low-cost cables look good, but the braids fail with repeated flexure. And low-frequency RG cables are sometimes disguised as high-performance test leads, which eventually fail in the field.


The Solution? SilverLine® Test Cable Assemblies. These test cables are cost-effective, durable, high-performance cable assemblies designed for use in a broad range of test and interconnect applications. Fabricated from rugged, solid PTFE dielectric cable with stainless steel connectors and a proven strain relief system, SilverLine assemblies provide long life and excellent stability in applications where they are repeatedly flexed and mated/unmated. SilverLine assemblies are economical enough to be used as interconnects in test systems and are ideal for use in production, field, and laboratory test environments.
