Conformable or Hand Formable cable is designed for applications that require cable to be formed at the time of installation without the need for bending tools. Comprising of a tin soaked copper braid, the cable stays in place after bending, it benefits from being able to use standard semi-rigid cable connectors.
There is no major degradation of electrical performance when cable are formed into shape,
The 50 ohm constructions exhibit similar attenuation characteristics as the M17/130-RG402 and M17/133-RG405 cables. All The Spiral Strip Shield coaxial cables have VSWR characteristics that meet or exceed similar size flexible constructions. IC402 and IC405 have been designed with diameters over the outer braids of .141” and .086”.
An overall FEP jacket is available for this type of cable if required.
