FLEXWELL®' Foam Dielectric
These cables use a proprietary, closed-cell foam dielectric
that provides the low loss performance associated with air dielectric cables, but with
none of the pressurization problems. Their excellent intermodulation performance,
weatherproof qualities, crush resistance and high tensile strength have made them the most
popular design in the world for cellular and land mobile applications. FLEXWELL foam
cables are available in 1/4", 1/2", 7/8", 1 1/4" and 1 5/8"
diameters with fire retardant outer jackets if required. Inner conductors are solid
copper, copper clad aluminum, smooth wall or corrugated copper tube depending on the
diameter. All cable assemblies are inspected and electrically tested to confirm their
performance prior to shipment.
LLFLEx for maximum
The design of this cable enables it to withstand repeated
bending in the tightest of areas. Because of these easy handling and routing
characteristics, LLFLEX is an ideal choice for use as equipment jumper cables. In
addition, it is highly suitable for applications where RF screening efficiency, inter-
modulation protection, imperviousness to moisture and mechanical strength are required. It
is available with or without a fire retardant jacket in 1/4" and 1/2" diameters.
FLEXWELL® Air- Dielectric
These cables offer a remarkable combination of flexibility,
strength and superior performance. Because of their better uniformity, lower attenuation
and improved mechanical stability, they are used extensively in high power, land mobile
applications from 25-2500 MHz. Available in 1/2", 7/8", 1 5/8" and 3"
diameters, their design includes a spiral polyethylene dielectric, a corrugated outer
conductor and a black polyethylene outer jacket. A fire retardant jacket is available on
all sizes if required.
The low loss, broadband capability and construction of
these cables enable them to perform as a distributed antenna system as well as a
transmission line. In applications such as tunnels, building complexes and airports, where
the propagation of RF energy from a discrete antenna is either hindered or
impossible, a signal transmitted near the cable will couple into slots cut in its outer
conductor and be carried along the cable's entire length. FLEXWELL radiating cables are
used for both one-way and two-way communications systems. Power handling capabilities
range from 350 to 4300 Watts with attenuation from 1.3 dBd to 7.5 dBd. They combine high
strength and flexibility for ease of installation in tight places and allow frequency
reuse in scarce spectrums. They are available with or without a fire retardant jacket in
1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 7/8", 1 1/4" and 1 5/8" diameters.
