Dielectric improvements for greater coax performance

Dielectric improvements vastly improve coax performance

Project description:

A new range of coaxial cables used for navigation, avionics and anti-collision systems are both resistant and compatible.

Customer challenges:

Previous coaxial cables used a foam dielectric insulation. However the process needed to be changed due to new REACH regulations.

Nexans solutions:

Based on our long experience with extrusion, Nexans has developed a new “daisy” or “wagon wheel” (spoke) design. This aerated dielectric uses air rather than extruded foam insulation. This solution meets the very latest environmental regulations, is significantly lighter, and greatly improves dielectric performance – thus extending the use of coaxial cables well into the next decade.
