RFS Plenum-Rated Cable

The Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) plenum-rated wideband cables, tested up to 6 GHz, deliver outstanding electrical performance and support all wireless in-building applications


These air-dielectric coaxial cables meet the most stringent plenum cable standards, CMP, ETL listed to UL444, and also comply with Canadian CSA C.22.2/FT6 standard, with low-flame-spread and low-smoke characteristics. With this combination of features, RFS plenum-rated cables are 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. Intermodulation is virtually eliminated with the solid inner and outer conductors and state-of-the-art manufacturing. It has a star-shaped continuous dielectric, providing total support to the cable that eliminates electrical or mechanical problems in tight bending areas.

RFS plenum-rated cables are tested in accordance with the U.S. National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) testing method 262, ensuring they meet the most stringent flame-retardant and smoke-suppressant requirements. RFS wideband 1/2-inch plenum cable offers the best VSWR performance in the industry. Due to their low attenuation, outstanding heat transfer properties, and temperature-stabilized dielectric materials, they offer a safe, long-term operating life at high-transmit power levels.
