M-FLEX FLEXIBLE COAXIAL CABLE

M-FLEX® Microwave Coaxial Cables are a family of flexible cables designed to accept connectors designed for semi-rigid cable. Unlike other single or double braided “RG” type flexible cables, M-FLEX cables are true microwave cables capable of operating to frequencies of 26.5 GHz.

The extended frequency range is the result of a precision helically wrapped silver plated copper foil inner shield. This inner shield allows for outstanding flexibility while providing 100% coverage. The electrical performance of the M-FLEX cables approaches that of their semi-rigid counterparts.

High Performance

  • Helical shield for improved loss and phase stability.
  • Same size as semi-rigid to optimize assembly loss and VSWR.
  • Isolation greater than 90 dB to minimize cross talk and maximize system performance.

Easy to Use

  • Fully flexible for ease of installation.
  • Use standard machines for cutting and stripping, no added investment in time or equipment.
  • Designed for standard solder-on connectors, which are readily available and easy to use

Availability

  • Stock to satisfy immediate needs.
  • Packaged on spools in lengths of 50 to 1000 ft. to meet a wide variety of volume requirements.
  • Metric lengths available for added flexibility.
  • Low-smoke, zero-halogen options to meet specific requirements.
  • Pre-assembled with connectors upon request for added convenience.

M-FLEX cables are intended for static installations and are not recommended for applications that require extended flexing like a test lead. M-FLEX cables are supplied in long continuous lengths, which make them ideal for automated cutting and stripping equipment.

Micro-Coax M-Flex can be purchased in bulk on spools or reels and is designed to match the UT-141 or UT-85 semi-rigid cables, thus enabling use with a very wide variety of standard solder type connectors and stripping machines.
