Cover caps

Now new: cover caps for coaxial connectors

Abdeckkappe

Consistent performance and quality are very special concerns for us. To ensure that this remains the case in the course of your application, we have now added Telegärtner cover caps to our range. These protect your connectors from external influences such as dust as long as they are not connected to your application. For convenient handling, our cover caps are also optionally available with chains so that they do not get lost when not in use. Every cover cap in our range is waterproof to IP67 or IP54.

Protect your cable assemblies now with our new cover caps!

LMR 600

Newly arrived in our range: the LMR 600 and the LMR 600 FR

The LMR 600 is a high-quality coaxial cable with lowloss properties. With its PE sheath, it is suitable for outdoor use without restrictions. The manufacturer Times Microwave gives a 20-year guarantee on the UV resistance of its LMR cable.

The fire-resistant variant LMR 600 FR has an FRPE sheath that corresponds to the FRNC variants of the other LMR cables. Accordingly, it has the LSNH (Low Smoke No Halogen) property.

Fields of application: Radio application, broadband communication, automotive sector, assemblies …

IP protection types for coaxial connectors

What are IP protection types?

The abbreviation IP stands for International Protection or also Ingress Protection (protection from intrusion). In our case, the protection class for coaxial connectors provides information about their suitability for certain environmental conditions. This classification clearly clarifies whether a connector is suitable for outdoor use, for example, or whether it could be damaged by penetrating moisture. Incidentally, similar requirements for cables are explained in the article “Jacket materials for coaxial cables”. The individual protection classes are defined within Germany according to DIN and internationally according to ISO.

How is the IP code composed?

Cable tester

Cable tester for coaxial cables – Cable tester

Our new Timag 100 tester quickly and easily tests a coaxial cable for transmission quality or attenuation at specified frequencies using a reference cable.

One or more frequency ranges are tested by means of signal transmitters up to 3.8GHz. No programming knowledge is required to teach the test – one or more reference cables are sufficient.
The “Timag 100” was developed for service and quality assurance, cable testing and cable diagnosis of coaxial cables.

 

Advantages:

  • simple instruction – without programming
  • fast and reliable testing of cables
  • store and manage up to 100 different cables
  • Can be used without prior

Fire properties of coaxial cables

Many coaxial cables are designed to withstand high temperatures of up to 200°C without damage. These usually have a dielectric made of PTFE and an outer sheath made of FEB, PFA or PTFE. Cables with a dielectric and sheath made of Kapton are even temperature-resistant up to 250°C.

 

Please note: If temperature-resistant cables are assembled with the matching connectors and bend protectors, the maximum temperature is always that of the component with the lowest temperature resistance. If the coaxial cable is suitable for temperatures up to 200°C, but the connectors are only suitable for temperatures up to …

Chemical resistance of coaxial cables

It is not uncommon for a coaxial cable to be exposed to substances that can possibly impair its effect. In this case, it is useful to know the chemical resistance of the material in order to select the right cable for your application in advance. As you can see from the table below, in addition to the sheath material of the cable, the temperature of your application is also crucial. This is due to the fact that the structure of plastics changes at different temperatures. The most common plastics of our cable sheaths are considered here: PVC and PE. You …

Kink protection for coaxial cable

One of the most annoying problems with coaxial cable applications is that they tend to break at their most vulnerable point, the connection between the cable and the connector. Be it due to frequent use or improper handling. This can be prevented with a bend protector for coaxial cables. We stock both bend protection sleeves and shrink sleeves, the advantages of which are explained below.

Kink protectors

Knickschutztüllen

These serve to mechanically protect cables from excessive bending directly at the connector. In addition, different coloured cable sleeves can be used to identify different signals. In our assortment you will find …
