Quick Disconnect Fiber Contact – Hybrid Cable Assembly
A leader in operating and emergency room equipment partnered with Winchester to address issues with its operating room audio-visual system. The system is a critical operating room tool that the surgeon and entire operating room team rely on. Issues with this system can distract from the primary objective of focusing on the patient. Intermittent signal, damaged connectors (in installation and use), and ease of connect/disconnect were the issues that needed to be addressed. The customer approached Winchester Electronics to help develop an interconnect solution that guaranteed signal integrity, eliminated the threat of damaged connectors, and simplified the connect/disconnect process.
Triple Shielded Cable Solution
A customer approached Winchester Electronics’ SRC Haverhill (SRCH) division looking to improve the performance of its RF cables. The cables were used in automated test equipment where electromagnetic interference (“EMI”) was high. In addition, its assembly technicians complained that routing standard, double- shielded RF cable through its test system was difficult and would lead to delays in production.
Low Insertion Loss Semi-rigid SMP Cable Assembly
Winchester’s SRC Haverhill division was asked to evaluate cable assemblies that failed to consistently meet the customer’s expected performance levels. The customer manufactured the assemblies in-house using purchased MIL Spec SMP Right-Angle solder type cable connectors with a standard bifurcated center contact. The customer selected 0.047 semi-rigid cable with 69.5 VoP solid PTFE dielectric. Coupling the connector and cable with the quality assembly work from experienced operators, the customer should have been able to meet the required performance criteria. However, despite its best efforts the customer could not reliably pass a 0.70 dB Insertion Loss and 1.35:1 VSWR @ 20 GHz requirement. This inconsistency was causing critical disruptions in manufacturing.
