TCOM-200-PUR-DB cable is an Ultra Flexible Low Loss Communications Coaxial cable, supplied in any length – manufactured by Times Microwave Systems and available from McGill Microwave – Authorised Distributor of all Times Microwave products.
TCOM-200-PUR-DB Coaxial cable is a very popular product for applications where repeated flexing is taking place. The construction specifications of the cable have been designed in such a way that provides continuous reliability with continuous flexure.
Additionally, this cable provides Low Passive Inter Modulation (155 dBc Intermodulation Distortion). This cable is therefore an excellent telecommunications cable with the added benefit of unsurpassed reliability.
How is the TCOM-200-PUR-DB 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 83% Velocity of Propagation. There is a Silver Plate Copper Strip Braid over the Dielectric which helps to achieve lower DV resistance and thus keep the insertion loss low. As there is an SPC strip braid, Aluminium Tape and TC Braid, the shielding effectiveness is excellent at >100dB!
Direct Burial Water Blocking Agent
If the outer jacket of a standard coaxial cable were to be cut for any reason – or damaged by wildlife , this would leave the cable with a potential leak path, directly leading to system performance degradation problems caused by increases of attenuation due to internal corrosion over time – especially if the cable was installed vertically as the moisture would travel down the cable with gravity.
The significant advantage of the TCOM-200-PUR-DB cable is that in the event of the cable outer jacket being damaged, the blocking agent flows to the area where the outer jacket has been damaged and effectively re-seals the cable – ensuring that the ingress threat is localised to the small area where moisture has entered the cable and prevents any further moisture ingress.
The TCOM-200-PUR-DB comes with a UV resistant, PUR Jacket. This helps to ensure the cable jacket is more rugged and can withstand harsh outside environments and UV rays from sunlight, this is designed to last for up to 20 years of outdoor service.
