CAB-LN1

Laser Components has introduced the CAB-LN1 series of low noise cables from Femto, designed to counter triboelectric and microphonic noise improving sensitive current and charge measurements. Using a semi-conductive layer between the dielectric and shield layers combined with high quality components which guarantees an insulation resistance >1014 Ω.

The cables are suitable for ultra-low current measurements down to femtoampres, high resistance measurements, scanning probe microscopy, spectroscopy and piezo and pyroelectric transducers, says Laser Components.  Available in 0.1m, 0.2m, 0.5m, and 1m lengths, the CAB-LN1 is suitable for any Femto amplifier.
