Micro-Coaxial Cable For The Sensor Industry

As a custom manufacturer, Micro-Tek’s operation is designed to accommodate specific customer requirements. Recently processed were orders from two different customers for 50 Ohm Micro-Coaxial Low Noise Cable. Both orders required seven strands of #44 AWG silver plated copper; however, one needed a stainless steel reinforced center strand in place of the SPC. Process-wise, this is a very minor difference, however, it changes the characteristics. At Micro-Tek, we treat every order, regardless of how similar they may be, as unique products.

Once stranded, the Teflon® PTFE insulated cable is coated with a low noise coating before a 95% coverage silver plated copper Shield is added. An FEP jacket is then added to the cable with a finished OD of 0.041″ ±0.003″. This type of customization is a common practice for our facility and requires a minimum order of only 5000’, and can be completed with a lead time of approximately eight weeks.
