LMR600 is a low loss Coaxial transmission line that can be used in almost any application where good handling characteristics, improved shielding, and low loss is required, however, it is popularly used as jumper cables.
What are Jumper Cables?
Jumper cables are smaller and more bendable corrugated cables used to connect antennas and other components to network cabling. Jumpers are also used in base stations to connect antennas to radio units. Usually, the most bendable jumper cable diameter is 1/2″. They are flexible, low-loss RF coaxial cables for industrial application.
What are LMR cables?
The LMR series is a 50-ohm coaxial cable designed to replace lower-quality coax cables. It has a 3/4-inch minimum bend radius, and it can be easily routed into and through tight spaces without kinking.
This 50 Ohm 0.59 inch diameter and a 4.95 mm thin PE radio frequency cable are designed as a low loss flexible coax cable with PE jacket. It is designed with a stranded outer conductor with a .195 inch diameter copper-clad aluminum center conductor. It has a shield count of 2, a RF shielding of 90 dB, and the maximum frequency for this Pasternack cable is 5.8 GHz. LMR-195 coax cable has an attenuation at 1 GHz of 11.8 dB. It is outdoor rated and a preferred alternative for RG-58 and RG-142.
It is a flexible coaxial cable providing outstanding performance when used for jumper assemblies in wireless communications systems such as short antenna feeder runs in WISP, WLL, GPS, LMR, and mobile antennas. It is outdoor rated and a preferred alternative for RG-8.
This is an excellent coax cable and is just as flexible as RG213. A much better choice for short cable runs at VHF/UHF than RG213 or RG214. It is outdoor rated and a preferred alternative for RG-8. You can run LMR 400 up to 70 m (230 ft) and it is basically capable of handling around 2KW (kilowatt).
LMR-600 flexible 50 Ohm coax cable with PE jacket is rated for a 5.8 GHz maximum operating frequency. It is designed with a stranded outer conductor with a .176 inch diameter copper-clad aluminum center conductor. The standard coaxial cable with foam dielectric is a low smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) fire-retardant cable designed for in-building use and MSHA P-rated for mining applications. The fire retardant jacket is CMR/MPR rated. The cable has the lowest loss of any comparable cable. It is built with a double shield count and RF shielding of 90 dB. It weighs 0.20kg/m.
The main drawback for most coaxial cables is the loss of signal over longer distances, however, LMR600 is a low loss cable and can transmit over larger areas. As it is a low-loss cable it is suitable for transmission over 150ft.
It is also a good fit for applications with higher EMI problems as these cables are double shielded.
It is suitable for Jumper assemblies in wireless communications systems radio application, broadband communication, automotive sector, components in wireless communication systems. It is ideal for short antenna feeder runs.
Compatible with any application requiring an easily routed, low loss RF cable including:
