Flexiform L – New version released for 2008

Global cable Manufacturer Habia Cable further enhances its market leading range of Flexiform coaxial cables with the introduction of Flexiform L versions that offer a reduced insertion loss over the standard Flexiform range.

Flexiform is a re-formable alternative to traditional semi-rigid cable. Because it can be stripped and formed by hand without the need for special and often expensive tooling associated with traditional semi-rigid cable it also provides a cost effective alternative. Handling is similar to any standard coaxial cable, which means you can use existing cut and strip machines.

Frequently used within cellular base station antennas, the new ‘L’ versions give the opportunity for antenna manufacturers to incorporate the cable into cellular base station designs and offer antennas providing enhanced call quality.

By introducing a profiled low loss dielectric, Flexiform 401 L and Flexiform 402 L coaxial cables give a 7% reduction in attenuation over the standard Flexiform range whilst maintaining the outstanding shielding qualities.

A range of impedance options are available together with non magnetic conductor types, various screening options and jacket colours as well as a wide range of material alternatives.

Flexiform 401 L and Flexiform 402 L offer a phase stable product with little dimensional trade-off and no additional cost implication. As with the standard product, a range of different impedances can be provided if required.

Designed to operate from -65 to 180 °C the cables are manufactured with a silver plated copper conductor, profile extruded PTFE jacket, tin soaked tin plated copper braid and the option of Fluoropolymer (FJ) or Halogen free Jackets (HFJ). Flexiform L is also available in a range of alternative colours.

“Flexiform 401L and Flexiform 402L offer a phase stable product with little dimensional trade-off and no additional cost implication compared to our standard range together with a range of different impedance options if required” commented Brian Dempster, Market Manager for RF & Communications at Habia Cable”.
