RADIAX® RXL4.5-1 Coupled Mode
5/8" Cable
The Solution for Multiple Service Wireless Systems
Broadband by design, RADIAX RXL series
®
coupled mode cables from Andrew can operate
at AM (500 kHz), cellular, 3G, wireless LAN
(2.4 GHz) frequencies and beyond. System
designers and integrators can now optimize the
cable size with their design, especially for
installations requiring smaller, more flexible
cable with lower insertion loss.
RADIAX RXL coupled mode series cables can
carry several services at varying frequencies on a
single RADIAX cable, eliminating the expense and
complexity of several individual cable installations.
This multiple frequency capability also allows for
faster, simpler, and less expensive system
upgrades as new services are added.
RADIAX cables distribute available signal power
uniformly throughout the coverage area, eliminating
point antenna hot-spots. RADIAX cable systems
are also particularly effective for filling in RF nulls
in buildings, around corners, in tunnels or other
situations where coverage is difficult.
Based on our proven HELIAX® coaxial cable,
coupled mode RADIAX cable is made from a
corrugated, welded copper outer conductor
over a low density foam covering the inner
conductor. Holes milled in the corrugation peaks
of the outer conductor produce the cable's
radiating characteristics.
Features:
• Multiple services from one cable system:
• Eliminates need for added base stations
and extra antennas; reduces cable clutter
•
•
•
•
Covers a wide range of frequencies
Flexible, easy to install
Lower insertion and link loss
Used successfully world-wide in:
• Tunnels—subways—metros
• Multiband systems
• AM to WLAN bands
RADIAX® RXL cables: the broadband
coverage solution with the future built in.
