HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KENTUCKY - General Cable (NYSE: BGC) is pleased to now offer DBRF Flexible Low Loss 50 Ohm Coaxial Cables, a recent addition to the Carol® Brand Electronic wire and cable line.
The ability to communicate anywhere with wireless devices or cell phones-both indoors and out-continues to be a growing demand that requires Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). DAS provide signal coverage anywhere outdoors or in buildings as part of their existing Voice and Data networks, while assisting with weak cellular phone service and improving Wi-Fi connections to smart phones, laptop computers or tablets. They also assist with public safety communications infrastructures found in large business and office campus environments, as well as in commercial buildings; residential housing; public stadiums and arenas; transportation hubs; primary and secondary schools; universities and colleges; and government and municipalities.
Carol Brand DBRF Flexible Low Loss 50 ohm Coax cables are designed with DAS in mind and are to be used specifically in wireless applications such as:
· 2-way Land Mobile Radios
· Wireless Local Area Networks (IEEE 802.11)
· Wireless Internet (WISP)
· Wireless Broadband Data
· Wireless Local Loop
· Wireless Cable (MMDS)
"Our Carol DBRF Coax cables have RF (radio frequency) performance that is comparable to traditional corrugated copper cables," said Damien Sebald, Product Manager, Carol Electronic Products, General Cable. "But unlike corrugated copper cables, they are highly flexible, non-kinking and easier to terminate. When compared to traditional braided RG coax cables, our DBRF cables offer lower attenuation and better RF shielding."
General Cable's DBRF cables use standard connectors and are used in internal component and equipment wiring, inter- and intra-cabinet jumpers, base stations and antenna jumpers, tower and pole feeder runs, in-building runs, and any application requiring a 50 Ohm low loss RF cable.
