APN-14F-HF

1/4" Super Flexible Cable

Super flexible cables are designed for use in facilities with little space. Typical applications are connections inside mobile base stations and the hooking up of the necessary transmission and reception antennas. Highly flexible cables are ideal for applications requiring the smallest bending radii, high flexibility and outstanding mechanical and electrical performance.

DESCRIPTION

  • Helical corrugated copper
  • Foamed polyethylene dielectric
  • PE outer jacket
  • 50 Ohm cable
  • Designed for low loss transmission lines
