Lightweight Coaxial Cable:
30 % Weight Saving

Lightweight coaxial cables manufactured by Axon’ are 30 % lighter than the former aeronautics WN standards. Designed for the cabling of aircraft and helicopters, they exhibit excellent mechanical and electrical performances up to 6 GHz and 18 GHz for cable assemblies. The lightened WN KW (7.65 mm diameter) consists of a central aluminium conductor, a Celloflon® dielectric (Expanded PTFE patented by axon’), a reinforced aluminium braided shield and a FEP outer jacket. For a cable with such a small diameter, the attenuation values are excellent (15 dB for 100 m at 1 GHz). Moreover, the Celloflon® provides not only a low dielectric constant but also very good crush resistance (100 daN/100 mm).
