1/2" CELLFLEX® Lite Low-Loss Foam-Dielectric Coaxial Cable

CELLFLEX® Lite 1/2" low loss flexible cable

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • It represents a light-weight transmission line solution
    The light weight of CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable results in reduced work-force and lifting gear.
  • It is easy to transport, handle and install
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cables enable savings in shipping cost.
  • It exhibits a cost-efficient alternative to copper transmission line
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable helps to reduce CAPEX spending.
  • It offers a user-friendly compatibility with RFS's existing range of accessories
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable requires less inventory additions, thus reduced OPEX.
  • It enables trouble-free installation and operation
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable avoids downtime and reduces OPEX.
  • The attenuation is comparable to the industry standard in traditional cable
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable maintains uncompromised coverage.
  • Specially developed connectors exhibit low and stable intermodulation performance
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable exceeds present PIM standards ensuring no dropped calls.
  • It is available with UV-resistant polyethylene or flame-retardant jackets
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable can be used outside and in indoor applications where restrictions apply.
  • It exceeds industry standard for return loss performance
    CELLFLEX® Lite coaxial cable means zero risk in network planning.
