Dielectric improvements for greater coax performance
A new range of coaxial cables used for navigation, avionics and anti-collision systems are both resistant and compatible.
Previous coaxial cables used a foam dielectric insulation. However the process needed to be changed due to new REACH regulations.
Based on our long experience with extrusion, Nexans has developed a new “daisy” or “wagon wheel” (spoke) design. This aerated dielectric uses air rather than extruded foam insulation. This solution meets the very latest environmental regulations, is significantly lighter, and greatly improves dielectric performance – thus extending the use of coaxial cables well into the next decade.
