Belden® Unveils Large Diameter RF500 and RF600 Low Loss, 50-Ohm Coaxial Cables for Wireless Applications

RICHMOND, IN - Belden Electronics Division, a world leader in the development of wire and cable products for the broadcast, broadband and wireless markets, announces the addition of RF500 and RF600 cables to its line of Radio Frequency (RF) Coaxial cables. These large, low-loss, 50-ohm coaxial cables are precisely engineered for superior transmission quality and reliability, plus they exactly meet industry size standards with diameters of 0.500-inches (RF500) and 0.590-inches (RF600).

Ruggedly designed - yet both lightweight and flexible - these coaxial cables meet the demanding requirements of today's
wireless protocols. They are ideal for use as antenna jumper cable assemblies and short antenna feeder runs in wireless
communication systems such as Wireless Local Loop (WLL), Land Mobile Radio (LMR®), PCS and cellular. They can also be deployed in in-building wireless applications such as internal communications systems and wireless LANs (WLANs/Wi-Fi).

RF500 and RF600 Coaxial cables feature copper-clad aluminum conductors, the highest quality foamed high-density
polyethylene (FHDPE) insulation, an aluminum foil and tinned copper braid composite shield, and a choice of either PE or
PVC jacket. This construction offers the optimum combination for a lightweight, low loss, low VSWR, high velocity of
propagation and superior EMI/RFI cable. The cables are also 100% sweep tested for VSWR and exhibit excellent phase
stability over both temperature changes and repeated flexing conditions, resulting in unsurpassed signal integrity and
electrical performance.

These cables are available in three versions: with weatherproof PE jackets (Product #7976A and 7977A); with PE jackets
that include a water-blocking gel embedded in the shield for additional protection in wet environments (Product #7976WB
and 7977WB); and with flame-retardant PVC jackets and a UL listing for interior riser applications (Product #7976R and

RF500 and RF600 Coaxial cables are fully compatible with industry standard connectors, tools and accessories. They also serve as a complement to Belden's existing line of RF100-RF400 Coaxial cables.
