With site sharing now becoming more common, the PIM stability and long-term performance of jumper cables are more important than ever. Telegärtner takes this requirement very seriously and is constantly looking at ways to improve connector and jumper cable performance through innovation of their design features. The solder joint has always been a critical part of this process and we have now taken the step to ensure this joint is better protected through a new, harder over mould material (Polyamide V0) and design.
Proven Robust Quality
In order to ensure we achieved the desired results, we tested the strain relief to the most demanding parameters. Cycled on a day/night timescale between +80° and -80° Celsius degrees for seven days and then rapidly heated and cooled to push the limits of the material. We subjected it to the harshest of conditions and found that it could not be broken. This will give the solder joint the protection it needs to ensure the crucial prolonged and stable PIM performance.
Now as standard
Telegärtner is pleased to announce that this new over mould design will be introduced over the next few weeks as standard on all ½” feeder type and Superflex jumper cables.
