RL478 Series
Rigid Line Components 4 7/8” 50 ohm

RFS rigid line components are available for both unpressurized (indoor) and pressurized, flanged (outdoor) systems. ;
Sizes available are 7/8", 1-5/8", 3-1/8", 4-1/2", 4-7/8", 6-1/8" and 7-3/16�.
All components are manufactured to the most exacting tolerances.
Other line sizes are available on special order.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Line inner and outer tubing is of high conductivity, hard-drawn, copper, milled to exact dimensions. Unflanged components for indoor use are polished and sprayed with a clear lacquer to maintain a high lustre finish
  • Flanges and mitred elbow joints are TIG welded for maximum strength
  • Captive PTFE dielectric insulators are used exclusively in lines and elbows to ensure precision mating and stability of components after assembly
  • All inner conductor connectors are silver plated
  • All components conform to the relevant EIA or IEC standards

Attenuation Table CommentAttenuation at 20°C (68°F) cable temperature
Mean power rating at 40°C (104°F) ambient temperature
#1 Outer temp rise 23°C (73°F), Inner temp rise 80°C (176°F)
#2 Outer temp rise 30°C (86°F), Inner temp rise 100°C (212°F)
Applying a dark matt finish will reduce max temp rises.
