Response Microwave, Inc.

Cable Assembly Solutions

Anchored by our strategic relationships with several
global connector manufacturers, Response Microwave
offers a complete line of high quality, cost effective
cable assemblies for use in your commercial or military
environment. From quick reaction prototypes to full rate
cable assembly production, we can service your complete cabling needs.

Our complete cable assembly capability includes everything from 0.047" semi rigid up through 1 5/8" corrugated. We offer coaxial impedance values at 50 and 75ohms as well as providing fiber optic, power and multi-stranded cable assemblies. Selection of the connector and cable depends on their mechanical and electrical compatibility. We will provide cable suggestions as required.

Custom variants are considered upon request. Please forward your specific requirements and we will respond with a price and technical quotation accordingly. Sketches or formal SCD's are always welcome.

HOW TO SPECIFY YOUR CABLE ASSEMBLY
Be sure to define the following elements to insure an accurate quotation;

      × Connector A + cable type + Connector B
      × Cable length (overall or between connectors)
      × Any specific electrical requirements (keys: frequency, phase, loss)
      × Any specific environmental requirements (keys: temperature)
      × Any specific mechanical requirements (keys: forming, flexibility, sleeving)
      × Any specific marking/labeling requirements (keys: P/N, length, phase)

GENERAL NOTES
1. Standard length tolerance is +/-5%
2. Unless specified otherwise, length will be calculated as overall

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

ELECTRICAL
The operating frequency, insertion loss, VSWR and power requirements are key factors in determining your optimum assembly as cable and connector selection will be driven by these elements.

Other factors may be electrical length, phase or delay time, all of which are directly related/affected by the selected cables velocity of propagation and associated operating frequency.

MECHANICAL
There are several ways to define cable length based on specific application needs;
      a) Overall = distance from connector end face to connector end face
      b) Between Connectors = distance from back end of connector to back end of connector
      c) Reference Plane = Distance from connector centerline to connector centerline
Unless specified otherwise, supplied cables will be based on overall length condition. In any case, specified standard tolerance will apply unless otherwise specified.

Pre-formed cables can be supplied upon receipt of your defined routing for required bends and shapes. Associated tolerances will be discussed during the quote phase and a mechanical drawing will be presented and/or agreed upon prior to build.

Connector definition is often overlooked but is an integral and important part of your assembly. Please be sure to advise the following elements relative to the required series of connector A and connector B of your assembly;
      Gender
            Male
            Female
            Reverse Polarity Male
            Reverse Polarity Female
      Configuration
            Straight
            Right Angle
            Bulkhead
            Flanged (2 or 4 hole)

It is also important to specify required orientation of any D-flats and right angles of a given connector relative to the corresponding connector.

ENVIRONMENTAL
All cables are not created equally, so please make us aware of any special requirements based on the environment your cable will ultimately be exposed to so proper materials and conditioning can be considered.
