LMR-200-LLPX cable is an indoor, highly fire retardant cable intended specifically for runs within return air handling plenums (e.g. dropped ceilings, raised floors). It has a UL/NEC & CSA rating of ‘CMP’ and ‘FT6’ respectively.
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. This is also backed up by the best warranty and technical support in the business.
LMR-200-LLPX is highly fire retardant as well as having excellent reliability, unsurpassed flexibility and ultra low attenuation. The LMR-200-LLPX cable has loss figures comparable to the extremely rigid corrugated coaxial cables however manages to achieve similar flexibility to that of high loss RG Cables. LMR-200 is around 40% lower attenuation than equivalent sized RG Air-Dielectric type Cables.
How is the LMR-200-LLPX low loss figures achieved?
This is achieved due to the cable construction specifications. The centre conductor uses a high conductivity, Bare copper clad covered aluminium centre conductor material. The dielectric is nitrogen injected, foamed, closed cell, Polyethylene which helps achieve 76% Velocity of Propagation. The Dielectric has a Aluminium foil outer conductor, which is chemically bonded on to it. Due to the cable construction, The attenuation is significantly lower as compared to single shielded coaxial cables: RF shielding of LMR-200-LLPX is > 90 db as compared to 40 dB for RG8X.
The Jacket of the LMR-200-LLPX is made from Fluoropolymer, this is engineered to create a low loss coaxial cable that is highly fire retardant, with a much wider operating temperature range.
Frequency Operating Band
LMR-200-LLPX is designed to operate excellent from DC – 6GHz. For any frequency band at VHF and above LMR is the obvious choice.

Installing LMR-200-LLPX Connectors
Installing the LMR EZ connector range is the easiest in the business. Detailed instructions come with the connector, however, to ensure you achieve the correct strip length every time, with minimum effort, we have you covered. You can use our TK-195/200EZ Cable assembly tool kit. The tool kit consists of a CST-195 strip tool, CT-240/200/195/100 crimp tool and a CCT-03 Cutting tool.
