Low Loss LBC Coaxial Cables for the Communications Industry
LBC Low Loss Coaxial Cables

When running cable between any types of equipment, one of the first things to consider is the losses that the chosen cable will introduce into the system.

Choosing high quality Low Loss Coaxial Cable will help minimise these losses and help with the deployment of a functional RF system.

What is the LBC Range of Coaxial Cables?

• 100% shielding
• Available as raw cable or pre-terminated assemblies
• Rugged
• UV, Sunlight and Weather Resistant

The industry standard in high performance broadband, flexible, low loss 50 Ohm coaxial cables.

The LBC Range of Coaxial Cables are Flexible Low Loss Coaxial cables, manufactured by Gigatronix. They are available in a range of sizes and styles from 2.79mm to 14.99mm outer jacket diameters.

Stranded centre core versions (LBC ExtraFlex) for added flexibility and Low Smoke Zero Halogen jackets are also available.

Why choose LBC Coaxial Cable?

LBC Coaxial Cable is a popular choice due to its excellent reliability, flexibility and low attenuation.

The LBC range of cables have loss figures around 40% lower than similar sized RG equivalents and are able to cover a much wider range of frequencies of their RG counterparts while still managing to retain the flexibility and ease of handling.

Why Choose LBC Cable


All standard LBC coaxial cables come with a UV resistant Polyethylene (PE) Jacket. This helps to ensure the cable jacket can withstand harsh outdoor environments and UV rays from sunlight. They are designed to last for up to 20 years of outdoor service.

Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jackets are available for use in applications where toxic smoke and fumes could pose a risk to human health.

Frequency Operating Bands

Depending on the chosen size of cable, the LBC range is designed to operate from DC to 11GHz. For any frequency band at VHF and above LBC would be the obvious choice


LBC Low Loss Coaxial Cables are ideal for:

• Jumper Assemblies in Wireless Communications Systems
• Short Antenna Feeder runs
• 3G or 4G repeaters
• Radio antennas
• VSAT Applications

Connectors to Suit

Gigatronix manufacture a wide range of connectors that include all the common interface types such as N Type, SMA, TNC, BNC and Reverse Polarity connectors. These connectors are available in crimp /crimp, solder, clamp and push-fit form for rapid, solder-less assembly.

There is even a range of IP68 Waterproof connectors for external and harsh environment use.
