Pigtail Cable Description
Siretta coax pigtail assemblies are made from high quality components and assembly methods to control VSWR and Return Loss. Two cable types are available, the smaller and more flexible 1.13mm and standard RG174. Selection is somewhat dependent on length and consequentially, attenuation. Various connector types can be chosen to suit: PCB mount, case mount or free movement types. PCB types are IPEX brand connectors; chosen for their reliability and are compatible with uFL connectors.
Patch Cable Description
Patch cables are typically used for machine to machine interconnections and the RG174 type LLC100 low loss cable type is suitable for good signal strength links.
Extension Cable Description
Siretta Extension Cables are made from high quality components to ensure signal strength is preserved. Our extension cables use LLC200 cable which is a low loss RG58 type cable. Low loss cable is best for lengths over 5m unless a very high gain antenna is used. When connecting to an external antenna there is a risk of lightening using the antenna to dissipate the energy to ground. To mitigate against this high voltage energy entering the equipment, a ‘Surge Arrestor’ should be installed at the building entry point.
