Phase Performance that Endures

MWX2SeriesHigh Flexibility

Phase stability and added mechanical flexibility for precision measurements

MWX2 series features superior mechanical flexibility which facilitates excellent measurement operation. Consequently there is no need to add any extra stress to the Devices under Test.

MWX2 series is inherently soft in terms of flexiblity and is available in a variety of frequencies ranging from 12, 18, 26.5, 40, 50 and 67 GHz with the appropriate connectors.

Flexibility data

A test cable measuring 1,000 mm in length was formed into a circle with an internal diameter of 300mm. Both ends were overlapped and secured with tape measuring 50 mm in width. The circularly formed test cable was then suspended, with the overlapping end section at the top and a weight positioned at the bottom. Circularity was measured after five seconds. (Circularity is expressed as the ratio a/b.)
