RF Industries’ Cable Assemblies for DAS Applications

By News Release | March 10, 2014

RF Industries’ cable assemblies for DAS applications use Times Microwave SPP-250-LLPL and TFT-402-LF flexible cables to meet requirements of in-building DAS applications.

RF Industries Plenum CableDistributed Antenna Systems (DAS) in buildings use large numbers of coaxial cable assemblies with special requirements. The assemblies need to efficiently transfer the RF signal (low loss), reduce the occurrence of interference caused by intermodulation (low PIM), fit into tight mechanical spaces (flexible), and meet building fire codes (plenum-rated). Most coaxial cable assemblies meet some of these requirements, but fall short of meeting them all.

RF Industries offers coaxial cable assemblies with Times Microwave SPP-250-LLPL and TFT-402-LF plenum-rated, low-loss, low-PIM, flexible cables that meet all these requirements for an in-building DAS coaxial assembly. The SPP-250-LLPL is a small-diameter corrugated cable. The TFT-402-LF is an extremely flexible, low-minimum-bend radius cable. Both cables meet UL910 fire requirements and exhibit low loss and low PIM performance.

Cable assemblies are available in standard and custom lengths, terminated with RF Industries brand or Times Microwave brand RF connectors. Connector terminations include 7-16 DIN male, 4.1-9.5 (Mini) DIN male, N male, and SMA male. RF Industries applies high standards of manufacturing techniques and tooling with 100% final testing for electrical and PIM performance to ensure every cable assembly meets the advertised specifications.
