PIC RFMATES 50 Ohm Coaxial, Triaxial and Lightweight Cables

Ultra Lightweight Cables – 50 Ohm

PIC’s next generation ULTRALITES are an expansion of our lightweight 50 ohm RF coaxial cable family – RFMATES®. Each ULTRALITE cable provides a considerable weight savings compared to RG cables and other similar-performing cable.


Coaxial Cables – 50 Ohm

PIC RFMATES® 50-ohm coaxial cables are lightweight, flexible, low loss transmission, high-temperature cable. Our high-tech cables are designed specifically for aircraft systems and other harsh environments. Most are constructed with silver-plated copper conductors and shielding. Most 50-ohm designs also incorporate extra shielding for superior EMI protection. Our cables also feature laser markable jackets.

Triaxial Cables – 50 Ohm

PIC 50-ohm triaxial cables are also light to reduce fuel consumption and flexible. Our triaxial cables have low loss of transmission signal, low temperature low as -55°C high-temperature up to 200°C and are designed specifically for aircraft systems and other harsh environments.

Aircraft Coaxial and Triaxial Cable

PIC aircraft cables and aircraft cable assemblies are widely specified for major avionic systems in commercial, corporate and military aircraft and all of them meet or exceed FAA flammability requirements. A test report is included with every assembly.

Low Loss Coax Cable

The low loss coax cable 50 ohm construction consists of 1.) an outer FEP jacket (clear) 2.) silver-plated copper shield, 3.) aluminum/polymide shield, 4.) silver-plated copper flat strip braid, 5.) PTFE Dielectric, and 6.) silver-plated copper conductor.

High Temperature Cable

PIC carries high temperature cable wire in a wide variety of configurations to suit every harsh environment application. The temperature range for the majority of the coaxial cable is -55/+200° and for triaxial cable -55/+150°.
