...with low loss coaxial cables


Over the past several years, there has been an increased demand for low loss coaxial cables due to the intensive utilization of frequency spectrum well up into the microwave regions. All the cables that are presented in this brochure meet these requirements at a very competitive price.

AIRCOM PLUS with its unique air cell dielectric has become one of the most popular multi-purpose coaxial cables since its introduction in 1989. A specially designed honeycomb expander maintains the correct position of the center conductor while keeping the cable impedance constant even when its sharply bent. This high quality, semi-air spaced cable can be used for applications up into the 10 GHz microwave region. Throughout its useable frequency range AIRCOM PLUS achieves a remarkable low loss despite its small diameter of 10.3 mm (0.4 inches)
AIRCELL 7 is an extremely flexible coaxial cable with a surprisingly low loss even though its diameter is just 7.3mm (approx. 0.28 inch). Because of its 19 strand copper center conductor, a bending radius as small as 25 mm (approx. 1 inch) is allowed. This makes AIRCELL 7 ideal for small to intermediate distances or where limited space does not allow the use of larger diameter cables. The ECOFLEX family of coaxial cables is the number 1 choice when it comes to flexibility, low loss and ease of use. IP 68 compliant solderless N-connectors are available, thus allowing the manufacture of cable assemblies in minutes. ECOFLEX cables are the European wide industrial standard for general communications use. They are also ideally suited for use in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WLAN bands. Precise coaxial connectors are an absolute necessity for long lasting trouble free connections! For all the cables presented in this brochure, the most common types of coaxial connectors are available. These specially designed connectors feature: extended housings oversized gaskets for better sealing and above average strain relief no special tooling requirements. Easy to read assembly instructions can be downloaded from the internet. For long lasting high-quality connections, we strongly recommend using the genuine AIRCELL 7, AIRCOM PLUS und ECOFLEX coaxial connectors.

AIRCOM PLUS is a semi air spaced coaxial cable with excellent electric and mechanical properties. Its low-loss characteristics makes it very suitable for applications up into the microwave range. AIRCOM PLUS features a unique PE-honeycomb expander which retains the correct impedance even when sharply bent. The expander provides a tight seal around the solid center conductor which is made from oxygen free copper, thus ensuring it is protected against moisture and corrosion. Another feature of AIRCOM PLUS is its double shielding which is constructed of overlapping copperfoil plus an additional tightly woven copperbraid resulting in a screening efficiency > 85 dB@1 GHz. The copperfoil has an applied PE-coating which prevents foil cracking due to short radius bends and the black PVCsheath of AIRCOM PLUS is UV-stabilized. AIRCOM PLUS is the 1st choice when a low-loss microwave rated cable is required. Its economical price makes it the clear leader for todays demanding applications. AIRCOM PLUS is available from stock in the following standard drum sizes: 25m, 50m, 100m, 200m and 500m.

ECOFLEX 15 is a flexible low-loss coaxial cable for use in the frequency range of DC - 6 GHz. Its unique construction combines the low loss properties found in non-flexible solid center conductor hardline cables with the high flexibility of cables manufactured with stranded center conductors. Advanced manufacturing techniques combined with the use of a PE-LLC Dielectric yields a foaming rate of more than 70%, resulting in very low attenuation. The use of continuous center conductor calibration and compression as well as the application of a precoating guarantees low losses and stable impedance matching. An EMI screening immunity of > 90 dB at 1.0 GHz is achieved through the use of double shielding which consists of overlapping copper foil and an additional tight woven copperbraid. The copperfoil has an applied PE coating which prevents foil cracking due to short radius bends. The black PVC sheath of ECOFLEX 15 is uv-stabilized. ECOFLEX 15 is the 1st choice when a low loss, highly flexible microwave rated cable is required. Its economical price makes ECOFLEX 15 the clear leader for todays demanding applications.

Solder-free, high quality connectors in N and 7-16 have been specially developed for ECOFLEX 15. Connector installation only takes a few minutes and requires no special tools. ECOFLEX 15 is available from stock in the following standard drum sizes: 25m, 50m, 100m, 200m and 500m.
