75-ohm Cables for CATV, Video, IPTV and Broadcast Components

MegaPhase 75-ohm test cables offer ideal alternative to expensive OEM cables employed in bench-top testing of CATV products. A selection of precision 75-ohm connectors compliment the line. These test cables are designed to survive in rugged test environments and provide stable performance under flexure enabling repeatable measurements between calibrations. The cables are available in phase matched sets and can be color coded to reduce interconnect confusion.
