Cable Construction

  1. ETFE Jacket (White) Laser Markable
  2. Silver-Plated Copper Braided Shield
  3. Foil Inner Shield
  4. PTFE Dielectric
  5. Stranded Silver-Plated Copper Covered Steel

PIC P/N S31601 Coaxial cable is a 50 Ohm coaxial cable equivalent in size as the standard Mil-Spec RG316 coax but slightly lower in loss due to the extra inner foil shield. The inner foil shield within the S31601 also achieves -90 dB shielding effectiveness compared to only -50 dB for an RG316 coax cable.

This particular 50 ohm coaxial cable was designed mainly to replace the RG316 coax. The S31601 low loss coax cable is manufactured with a white ETFE laser-markable jacket which saves the user considerable time, eliminating the need to label the cable at certain intervals.

The S31601 cable dimensions have remained basically the same as an RG316 coax cable, allowing the use of standard COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) connectors.

The S31601 comes from PIC and Wire’s RFMates line of coaxial cables and is Skydrol resistant, RoHS compliant and meets the FAA Flammability requirement of FAR PART 23 and 25.
