Systems integrators can install these cables as an alternative low-cost solution compared to semi-flexible (solder braid) coax and RG type coax for RF and microwave interconnects in applications to 3 GHz.
Unlike solder braid cables, the flat braid shield on TFT-LF cable is not susceptible to cracking when bent, which permits installation in tight spaces without the risk of compromising performance.
Compared to standard RG cables, the flat braid shield provides much better shielding and lower attenuation. The FEP jacket provides excellent protection in corrosive environments and resists the effects of UV sunlight. TFT-LF cables also are CMP (plenum) rated and provide better than -160 dBc PIM performance when properly terminated.
Features include low passive intermodulation distortion (PIM); UL910 plenum rating to satisfy building code requirements; stable loss, phase, and VSWR vs. flexing; extremely flexible, low minimum bend radius; lower loss than standard semi-rigid; and standard solder-on semi-rigid connectors.
