Red Plenum Coaxial Cables Ideal for Public Safety Applications

Best-In-Class Cables Support iDAS and oDAS for Emergency Communications


RFS introduces red public safety UHF/VHF plenum coaxial cables, designed with the mission critical need for easily identifiable cable in mind, while still enabling the outstanding electrical performance and support for all wireless in-building applications that RFS is recognized for. Due to their low attenuation, outstanding heat transfer properties, and temperature-stabilized dielectric materials, RFS plenum-rated wideband cables offer a safe, long-term operating life at high-transmit power levels. They feature low-flame-spread and low-smoke characteristics and meet the most stringent plenum cable standards, CMP, ETL listed to UL444, and also comply with Canadian CSA C.22.2/FT6 standard, making them ideal for use within the ceiling area defined as the “environmental air handling space,” as well as for more traditional plenum applications. Their solid outer conductor creates a continuous RFI/EMI shield that minimizes system interference. RFS plenum cables have a star-shaped continuous dielectric, providing total support to the cable that eliminates electrical or mechanical problems in tight bending areas. RFS has manufactured and deployed 33 million feet of cable since 2011, delivering on the promise of proven system performance.
