CLF-100 Coax Specifications / Characteristics. Comparison to LMR-100

Structure Diagram of Imr100 clf100

CLF-100 and LMR-100 have the same structure and shielding

CLF-100 "Low loss cable" differs from RG174 and other coax standards by double shielding and the resulting less attenuation (signal loss in the cable) than RG174 and RG178. CLF-100 is equivalent or better quality compared to LMR-100.

CLF100 is a 2.5 to 2.79 mm-thin radio frequency cable. Double shielded, reasonably priced and suitable for most applications - if the length of the cable is short (less than 2 meters).

50 Ω COAXIAL CABLE MATERIAL DIAMETER
INNER CONDUCTOR Copper Wire, solid 0.45 mm
DIELECTRIC PE 1.52 mm
SHIELDING Aluminum Foil / Tinned copper braid 2.11 mm
CABLE SHEATH PVC 2.79 mm

Signal loss (attenuation) at:

  • 900 MHz: 0.22dB per foot | 0.72 per meter
  • 2.4 GHz: 0.39dB per foot  | 1.28 per meter

THE FOLLOWING CONNECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED:

BNC, TNC, RP-TNC, N, SMB, RP-SMA, SMA, SMC, Micro connectors such as MMCX and MCX, Lemo 00, Lemo S1, VGA, D-Sub, and many others
