L-com has introduced a new series of flexible coaxial cable assemblies designed to be used instead of 0.141 semi-rigid (RG402) cable in applications requiring increased flexibility. The LCCA series cable assemblies feature 402SS cable and are produced using high quality components to create a rugged, flexible and versatile interconnect. These assemblies exhibit performance characteristics very similar to semi-rigid and offer flexibility without compromising performance.

The 402SS coax cable features a solid center conductor, PTFE dielectric and silver-plated copper braid outer shield over a silver-plated copper spiral strip inner shield. This multi-layer shield construction provides increased flexibility, maintaining excellent insertion loss and shielding performance to 18 GHz, to support many lab, test and automated test equipment applications.

The LCCA series has heavy-duty booting to extend the life of the flexible assembly and uses precision stainless-steel connectors, offering multiple connector options: male and female SMA and Type N connectors, Type N female bulkhead and male SMA right-angle connector combinations.

Custom versions of the LCCA cable assemblies, as well as L-com’s entire RF cable assembly line, can be built and shipped the same day. Other available RF cable assembly value-added services available from L-com include connector orientation or clocking, heat shrink booting, custom labeling and RF testing to document the electrical performance of the cable assembly.
