ULTRALITE coaxial cables from PIC are the next step in cutting-edge technology. Our latest innovation is designed to be light as a feather and built with low loss materials so that you never sacrifice quality again. These next-generation ULTRALITE cables are an expansion of our already successful 50-ohm RF coaxial cable line to provide extra weight savings for those who have weight restrictions.
Switching to ULTRALITE cables – such as our UH25107, UH67163, UH22089 and UH44193 models – will allow you to save on a variety of things – from fuel consumption to making your equipment easier to install, without sacrificing performance. With ULTRALITE’s low attenuation, ultra-lightweight design and easy installation, we’re confident it’ll exceed your expectations.
- UH25107 is 81% Lighter than RG211
- UH67163 is 80% Lighter than RG393
- UH22089 is 60% Lighter than S22089
- UH44193 is 56% Lighter than RG142
