Good news for all those who need large quantities of cable by the metre at favourable prices. We pass on the price advantage we receive from bulk purchases from our branded cable suppliers to you when you purchase larger bundles and cables on reels.…
Would you like to compare two or more coaxial cables?
Here you can see the properties of the individual coaxial cables from different manufacturers at a glance.
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.
Fields of application: Radio application, broadband communication, automotive sector, assemblies …
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?
The code …
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.
- simple instruction – without programming
- fast and reliable testing of cables
- store and manage up to 100 different cables
- Can be used without prior
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 100°C, …
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 …
