New coaxial cables with low PIM levels

Louise Davis

Fairview Microwave has released a new series of low-PIM coaxial cable assemblies in standard and custom lengths that are designed for distributed antenna systems (DAS).

The over 100 standard configurations that make up Fairview Microwave’s new line of cable assemblies deliver PIM levels of less than -160 dBc. These high-quality cables provide excellent VSWR and low insertion loss. They are 100% PIM and RF tested with the PIM results marked on the cables. These are constructed of flexible, lightweight UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL RF coaxial cable which can operate in temperatures from -55°C to +125°C. They are offered with 4.3-10, 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type-N, SMA and QMA, many with right-angle connector options.

In addition to DAS systems, these cables are ideal for PIM testing, wireless infrastructure, indoor wireless systems, WISP networks, multi-carrier communication systems and small cell installation applications. Plus, this product line is scheduled to expand in the near future with the addition of 10 more connector options.
