Antennax Flexible Ultra Low Loss Communications Coax Cable

The Antennax range of high performance, ultra low loss coaxial cables is designed primarily for the interconnection of base stations, aerials and transceivers. Developed for microwave, satellite and telecommunication, Antennax coax cables are manufactued to guarantee optimum levels of performance across the broadband spectrum to 5.83GHz.

The flexible braided design allows Antennax cables to be used throughout the installation, removing the need for Jumper cables traditionally used to terminate corrugated coax cables.

Antennax cables are available jacketed with either a Polyethylene (PE) or Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) outer sheath. The rugged, UV stable, weather resistant PE guarantees a long service life even when exposed to the elements. The LSHF cable is perfect for in-building runs and is suitable for installation in sensitive enviroments and public buildings.

Steel Wire Armoured Cables

Source IEx offers a full range of Steel Wire Armoured cables from FSC Global that meet BS6724, BS5467, BS7846 & BS6622 power applications. The range is from 0.6/1kV to 6.35/11kV and available with various jackets including PVC, Low Smoke Halogens and also meet the requirements of IEC 60228 Class 2, IEC 60331 & 60332 Fire Resistance standards and the latest EN smoke and halogen emission standards.


XAT-331 Instrumentation Cables to IEC 60092-376

XAT-331 armoured instrumentation marine cables are manufactured in accordance with IEC 60092 and IEC 60331-21 providing circuit integrity to critical circuits on ships and rigs. XAT-U-331 offers a combined braid screen copper armour while the XAT-I includes an additional foil screen around each pair to prevent crosstalk. The cable is extremely flexible and easy to use in confined spaces and through difficult routes.

Fire Alarm Standard & Enhanced Cables

It is now recognized that in some buildings the continuing function or circuit integrity of some cables is essential in providing sufficient time for evacuations. The requirements divide 'soft skin' cables into 2 groups, Standard and Enhanced. The enhanced versions are suitable for installation where evacuation may be delayed, for example in high rise buildings without sprinklers and hospitals. The enhanced group of cables offer a viable alternative to MICC in many application with the benefit of faster installation and easier routing.

NYY PVC Unarmoured Power Cables

NYY cables are an economical form of power and control wiring where mechanical protection is not required. Used both indoors and outdoors, these cables are suitable for direct burial or through ducts - local regulations permitting. Originating in Germany, they are now popular in many parts of the world where cost, weight and size savings through not having an armour can be attractive.

Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables provide a high speed method of transmitting large amounts of data over much greater bandwidth than traditional copper cables. The construction of these cables can vary depending on the application and environment. Options include singlemode or multimode transmission in a loose tube or tightly buffered fiber design. These are available with a variety of sheath materials and mechanical armours.

Mineral Insulated (MI) Cables

MICC Fire Resistant copper clad cables offer un-paralleled fire performance in the event of an emergency. In their bare copper sheath form, they are completely inert in a fire situation and meet the requirements of the EU Construction Products Directive. MICC provides circuit integrity up to +950 degree C with minimal contribution to fire spread. They are the ultimate fire performance cable for densely populated buildings such as hospitals, airports and office towers. Also widely used in the petrochemical industry for critical safety shut down systems.
