JEFA Tech Low Loss 400 Cable AssemblySKU: CA-400-C1-C2-1
JEFA Tech Low Loss 400 is the most popular "workhorse" cable of the wireless LAN industry. It has a perfect balance of flexibility and low signal loss. Low Loss 400 is the most popular feed line for permanent installations. It has a 0.405 inch outside diameter and features a solid center conductor for greatest performance, foam dielectric and double shielding for low signal loss and interference rejection, combined with a direct burial capable, UV resistant Polyethylene jacket.
This is high performance coaxial cable which has become the standard of the outdoor wireless LAN industry. It is also used by Amateur Radio stations looking for higher performance for VHF/UHF, microwave, and satellite communications as compared to standard RG-8/U. It also works very well on HF, with much higher power handling capability than other coax alternatives.

QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE: This cable is professionally assembled and tested in our manufacturing facility in Maryland, USA! We stand behind the quality and performance of our cables. Our cables are guaranteed to be of the highest quality and performance or your money back.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: You are purchasing a completed cable assembly with connectors professionally attached to the cable. The ends are soldered and crimped, heat shrink is applied to seal the cable to the connector and provide additional support and the cable is then tested to ensure proper assembly and performance.
We use Agilent N9912A RF Analyzers for cable sweep testing.
SAME DAY SHIPPING: These cables are built-to-order. We have an optimized production line for these assemblies so most orders will ship the same day!
Since these cables are built-to-order, they are not returnable if you make a mistake when choosing the connector types or length. To see pictures of connectors, please see the connector identifier link at the top of the website. If you need assistance, please contact us.
