Low Loss Coaxial Cable characteristics


The LMR-XXX series from Amphenol is one variety of low loss coaxial cable. The term “low loss” refers to coaxial cables with low attenuation loss over long distance.

The main difference between traditional RG cables and low loss coaxial cables is their shielding. Low loss coaxial cables have better shielding characteristics than RG cables. Looking at the cable structure, the low loss coaxial cables with a solid center conductor offer lower attenuation than cables with stranded conductors.

Because of their low attenuation loss, low loss coaxial cables are often chosen for, but not limited to the following applications:

  1. Radar
  2. Communications
  3. WLAN
  4. Cellular and Wireless
  5. Test and Measurement
