Case Study
Custom Coax Cable Assembly
Components: LMR 400 coaxial cable, SMA connectors

For most wire and cable distributors, response time and turnarounds are crucial to winning an order and maintaining good relationships with their customers. When a wire and cable distributor approached Cables Unlimited looking for a special construction LMR 400 custom coaxial cable assembly with SMA connectors, Cables Unlimited was able to deliver the LMR coaxial cable assembly with shorter lead times than the distributor was able to find anywhere else.

The LMR 400 coaxial cable the customer was searching for is frequently used in the wireless industry because it offers the lowest loss for any flexible cable. This low loss makes it ideal for use in a wide range of low loss general purpose applications: short antenna feeder runs, indoor or outdoor use, direct burial, tower use, GPS, wireless communications systems, and more.

The SMA connectors paired with the customer’s LMR 400 coax cable are semi-precision, subminiature RF connectors developed with a screw type mechanism. Known for their compact design and superior electrical performance, SMA RF connectors are suitable for high-speed wireless applications.

Cables Unlimited was one of several companies the distributor reached out to for a quote on their custom LMR coaxial cable assemblies. A previous vendor for the distributor was unable to deliver a finished product for as long as four weeks. However, the distributor needed the product for its customer within a much tighter timeframe. Cables Unlimited designed and manufactured the custom coaxial cable assembly with the required SMA end connectors in half the turnaround time of the other vendor – just two weeks.

To produce the custom LMR cable assemblies within the distributor’s required timeframe, the Cables Unlimited team put in extra hours and worked night shifts to be sure that everything was not only completed quickly, but to the highest quality standards.

If other vendors are falling short of your expectations, or if you need a specialized custom cable assembly fast, Cables Unlimited will work with you to build a custom cable assembly that can be delivered within your timeframe.
