Launch of the Spuma RS
Addressing the evolving technical requirements of the modern battlefield, the worldwide launch of the Spuma RS demonstrates high flexibility for mobile applications, while new High-Power Limiters offer proven protection for sensitive electronics
A leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, HUBER+SUHNER, highlightd its powerful new solutions designed for the rigors of defence applications at Eurosatory 2018.
Spuma RS is the latest addition to the HUBER+SUHNER family of low-loss RF cabling. Designed for military vehicular and naval applications, this modern solution is encased in a TPU jacket material making it flame-resistant, yet its flexibility is not compromised, meaning it can cope with the physical stress associated with mobile defence applications. At the same time, the patented rotary swaging technology allows the combination of increased flexibility with low signal loss.
“Designing for lower insertion losses typically provides cable improvements that come at the expense of cable flexibility,” BJ Lyman, Market Unit Manager, Aerospace and Defense, says. “Spuma RS has been designed specifically to offer industry leading insertion loss and flexibility in one cabling solution. This is due to the combination of both material selection and patented manufacturing technique known as Rotary Swaging, where the individual stranded center contacts are compressed during production to remove air gaps; providing the unique combination of lower-loss and flexibility.”
HUBER+SUHNER is a leading manufacturer in the field of Lightning, EMP and Resistive Components. Another new and innovative technology are High Power limiters, offering proven protection for sensitive electronics. With a unique integration of protective capability against lightning, ESD and high-power microwave (HPM) in one compact device, the limiters support a variety of applications such as Electronic Intelligence, Signals Intelligence, Command, Control, Communication Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance or Ship’s Signal Exploitation.
“As a global interconnect leader with years of experience in the fields of Radio Frequency, Fibre Optic and Low Frequency, HUBER+SUHNER has a unique capability to develop cost-effective and technically superior products serving defence and aerospace applications,” Mr. Lyman continues. “This is based upon our ability to converge these technologies to ultimately offer higher-value RF Solutions to address the evolving technical requirements of the modern battlefield.”
All the products noted above are presented at the HUBER+SUHNER booth located in the hall 6, Swiss Pavilion, #J-197.
