600-Series Cable


The 600-Series Cable is a flexible, low-loss, high-performance coaxial cable that is thicker and better suited for longer cable runs compared to the 400-Series Cable. It is designed for distances exceeding 50 feet, where signal loss becomes more significant.

The additional shielding of the 600-Series cable helps reduce signal loss (attenuation), enabling it to support longer lengths effectively.

Key features of the 600-Series cables include:

  • Polyethylene (PE) dielectric jacket
  • 50 Ohm resistance
  • RF Shielding of up to 90 dB
  • Maximum frequency of 5.8 GHz

Here’s a comparative table highlighting the differences between the 600-Series and the 400-Series cables:

Feature 600-Series Cable 400-Series Cable
Jacket diameter 0.59 in 0.405 in
Max frequency 5.8 GHz 6 GHz
Max bend radius (one time) 1.5 in 1 in
Max bend radius (repeated) 6 inches 4 inches

The 600-Series cables allow for longer antenna runs with less loss, supporting distances up to 400 feet.

Example of 600-Series Cable in a sentence:

"While 600-series cables are ideal for long runs; they have a maximum continuous installation length of 1000 ft."
