conformable cable

Semi-Flex® coaxial cable assemblies are a tried and proven alternative to traditional Semi-Rigid Coaxial Cables. These cables provide comparable electrical performance to semi- rigid cables, while simultaneously allowing simple formation for use within RF/Microwave systems, as well as, for making external connections to other equipment. The outer conductor is comprised of a tin filled copper wire braid, which enables easy forming and re-forming by hand without the need for bending tools. With a Copper/Poly Foil inner layer along with Semi-Rigid style dielectric and center conductor, our Semi- Flex cables provide enhanced shielding and performance that exceeds traditional conformable cables.

Key Features

  • Hand-formable without the need for bending tools
  • Excellent electrical performance; comparable to semi-rigid cables
  • 100% Shielded with two metal outer conductors for reduced leakage
  • Improved flexibility and bending radius compared to semi-rigid
  • Quick and easy assembly; available in various lengths and connector options
