AtlanTecRF's ACG series of flexible coaxial test cables provides the microwave test engineer with a versatile solution to laboratory test cabling. With a braided outer conductor over a silver plated spiral strip the cable can be repeatedly flexed maintaining performance essentially equivalent to formed copper semi-rigid of equivalent size.

The ACG range of STOCK lengths in standard assemblies will meet the requirements of most applications.
