RFS Cellflex is Asia-Pacific's first corrugated aluminium transmission line

RFS has expanded its range of transmission line solutions with the release of Cellflex Lite, or L-series - a foam-dielectric corrugated coaxial cable with an aluminium outer conductor and a copper inner.

Cellflex L-series is claimed by RFS to offer the Asia-Pacific wireless market an alternative price-point/performance combination for establishing the base-station-to-antenna RF link. It is available now and is offered in 22.2 mm (7/8-inch) diameter. Weight is 330g/m, which is stated by RFS to offer a 34% reduction in weight when compared with Cellflex A, thereby making it easy to transport, handle and install.

The introduction of Cellflex L-series is designed to offer Asia-Pacific wireless carriers a long-awaited alternative to copper transmission line. Owing to the continued increase in raw material costs - particularly copper - Cellflex L-series is aimed at representing a cost-effective alternative to copper transmission lines.  

Aluminium shares similar electrical, mechanical and RF properties to copper, and this is the motivation for RFS. Cellflex L-series will, it is hoped, be a lightweight solution to assist the rapid roll-out of wireless network infrastructure currently occurring across the Asia-Pacific region. With the rate of wireless network deployment at an all-time high, Asia-Pacific network providers are continually looking for alternative ways of delivering quality mobile services and coverage to users.
