The LMR range is recognised globally as the Industry Standard, Ultra Low Loss, Flexible, Low Cost, Lightweight, DC – 6GHz Coaxial Cable Solution for many RF applications.
LMR cables are known for providing Ultra Low Insertion Loss, High Flexibility, and Excellent Durability, making them ideal for a wide range of applications, including telecommunications, wireless communication systems, military, aerospace, and more.
Low Loss: LMR cables are known for their low signal loss characteristics. This means that they can transmit signals over long distances with minimal loss in signal quality. Low loss is crucial for maintaining the integrity of high-frequency signals, such as those used in radio communication and wireless networks.
Frequency Range: LMR cables are available in various models, each designed to operate within specific frequency ranges. This allows users to choose the cable that best suits their application. LMR cables can support frequencies ranging from DC (Direct Current) up to 7 Gigahertz (GHz).
Construction: LMR cables are constructed with a foam dielectric material surrounded by an aluminium shield and braided shield. This offers superior shielding effectiveness. The cable outer jacket can come in a variation of material depending upon the cable grade selected. LMR cables are available in various sizes (diameter) and constructions to meet different requirements.
Flexibility: LMR cables are known for their flexibility and ease of installation. This flexibility is essential when routing cables through complex paths or in situations where tight bends are required without compromising signal quality.
Durability: Times Microwave designs LMR cables to withstand harsh environmental conditions. They are often UV-resistant and can handle exposure to extreme temperatures, making them suitable for outdoor applications.
Connector Compatibility: LMR cables are compatible with a wide range of RF connectors, allowing users to easily connect them to various devices, such as antennas, radios, and amplifiers. Additionally – the LMR range comes with either solderless (EZ) or Solder (TC) connectors, which are the easiest connectors to terminate in the industry.
Customisation: McGill Microwave offers a variety of LMR cable models to cater to different needs. Users can select the cable type, length, and connectors to customize their cable assemblies.
Performance: LMR cables are engineered to offer excellent electrical performance, including low insertion loss, low VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio), and high power-handling capabilities. This makes them suitable for high-power RF applications.
Applications: LMR cables are used in various applications, including cellular networks, wireless LANs (Local Area Networks), satellite communications, radar systems, and more. Their low loss and reliability make them suitable for critical communication systems.
Certifications: Times Microwave LMR cables are often tested and certified to meet industry standards and specifications, ensuring that they meet the required performance criteria.
The LMR range has a huge variation of sizes. The LMR cable range consists of the following sizes:
