Ecoflex 7 FRNC

Ecoflex 7 FRNC

Ecoflex 7 FRNC is an ultraflexible coaxial cable designed for frequencies up to 6 GHz. Due to its extraordinary low loss in relation to the outer diameter and the small bending radius the cable can be used for numerous RF applications.

The excellent attenuation values of Ecoflex 7 FRNC are achieved by using advanced manufacturing techniques and low loss PE-LLC dielectric with a foaming rate of more than 70%. This unique dielectric also offers water resistance and long term stability. The inner conductor of Ecoflex 7 FRNC contains 19 stranded bare copper wires with diameter of 0,38 mm each, manufatured from low oxygen copper (OFC). Such inner conductor structure provide the cable its remarkable flexibility. Further advantages of this cable include the use of double shielding which is constructed of overlapping 100 % tight copper foil and an additional shield braiding of bare copper wires with 85 % coverage. The copper foil has an applied PE coating which prevents foil cracking due to short radius bends. The jacket of Ecoflex 7 FRNC is made of a special thermoplastic copolymer (FRNC: Flame Retardant Non Corrosive). Due to this flame retardant and halogen-free material the cable has a low fire load, low flame propagation and limited smoke emission. The amount of toxic and corrosive gases is considerably reduced during combustion.
