Attenuation Coaxial cable - Coaxial wire

Attenuation / Shielding / Temperature

Question: Which is the right cable for my application?

For applications up to 1GHz we recommend the RG174, for applications up to 2.5GHz we recommend the RG179, RG188, RG187 or RG316. For applications above 2.5Ghz we recommend the use of low loss cable such as SS405, Multiflex_86 or CLF100. Due to the used materials and the cable structure, those cables are suitable for high frequencies (see illustration „Attenuation“).

Attenuation Coaxial cable

Tip: For applications in the µV range, we recommend the use of Low Noise Cables, like the LN5002. In the following, you can see a simplified scheme with the most important indicators.


Dämpfung Koaxialkabel

(1) for most applications in the technical field
(2) for video applications and audio (AF) as well as antennas for domestic use
(5) signal attenuation frequency-specific and depending on the distance.

RG174 (50R)favourable and very flexible standard cable, sheath colour: black
RG188 (50R)
RG187 (75R)
more temperature-resistant than RG174, sheath colour: white
RG316 (50R)
RG179 (75R)
more temperature-resistant and easier to solder than RG174, sheath colour: transparent
CLF100 (50R)low attenuation (low loss), flexible, double-shielded, for frequencies up to 6GHz, sheath colour: black
SS405 (50R)
Multiflex_86 (50R)
low attenuation (low loss), flexible, for frequencies up to 18GHz, more temperature-resistant than RG174, sheath colour: blue
LN5002 (50R)slight disturbance under mechanical load (low noise) as e.g. Vibrations, bending or torsionalmovements, sheath colour: white

Shealding / Temperature


Temperatur Schirmmaß

(1) for most applications in the technical field
(2) for video applications and audio (AF) as well as antennas for domestic use
(3) The higher the shealding, the smaller the risk thet signals get lost or local stations radiate into the field and disturb the transmission.
(4) Temperature range in which the cable is approved by the manufacturer
