RF Industries’ Plenum-Rated Low-PIM Cable Assemblies for DAS
RF Industries’ plenum-rated low-PIM cable assemblies for in-building distributed antenna systems incorporate Mini DIN connectors.
The 4.1/9.5 (Mini) DIN connector interface is essentially a compact version of the 7/16 DIN for applications on DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) and wireless infrastructures. RF Industries manufactures 4.1/9.5 (Mini) DIN male connectors and terminates them onto Times Microwave plenum-rated low-PIM cables SPP-250-LLPL and TFT-402-LF. The SPP-250-LLPL is a ¼-inch super-flexible corrugated cable. The TFT-402-LF is an extremely flexible, flat-braided, low minimum-bend-radius cable similar to semi-rigid .141 cable. Both cables meet UL910 fire requirements and exhibit low loss and low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) performance. The finished assemblies’ PIM performance meets or exceeds -160 dBc.
Cable assemblies are available in standard one and two meter lengths as well as custom lengths. RF Industries attaches the connectors by soldering the center pin and induction soldering to the cable outer conductor, providing excellent VSWR performance and reliable PIM performance. All finished cable assemblies are 100% final-tested for electrical and PIM performance to ensure every cable assembly meets the advertised specifications.
