APN-78F-FR

7/8" Corrugated copper cable. Non-corrosive, halogen free and fire retardant outer jacket

Amphenol feeder cables are designed for low loss connections from electronic transmission or reception units right up to the antenna. The cable features a copper clad aluminium wire inner conductor, annular corrugation of the outer conductor and a highly foamed polyethelene dielectric for enhanced performance. The FR cables are designed for applications which require a non-corrosive, halogen free and fire retardant outer jacket.

DESCRIPTION

  • Annular corrugated copper
  • Foamed polyethylene dielectric
  • Flame retardant, non corrosive outer jacket (FRNC)
  • 50 Ohm cable
  • Designed for low loss transmission lines
