Is LMR400 the same as CNT 400?

Is LMR400 the same as CNT 400?

CNT-400 / CNT400 is Commscope’s alternative to Times Microwave LMR®. CNT-400 / CNT400 is a very useful cable to consider for antenna runs.

Which is better LMR400 or RG213?

In contrast, LMR400 coax cables are better than RG213 in both loss and power handling, shown by the chart below. Since LMR400 has a larger conductor than RG213, the conductor size accounts for RG213 experiencing more signal loss than LMR400.

What is the difference between RG213 and RG214?

Both cables are able to withstand a high voltage rating of 5000V each, and are the same in terms of impedance, capacitance, and max frequency. The only slight difference between RG214 coax and RG213 coax is the maximum temperature rating. RG214 is rated slightly higher at 80°C, while RG213 is rated for 75°C.

What is the difference between LMR400 and LMR 600?

LMR® 600 is a thicker cable than the LMR® 400. You typically use LMR® 400 when going runs from 5ft to 40ft. Anything 50ft and above, you want to use LMR® 600. Because the cables will add loss to your signal, using the thicker LMR® 600 will reduce the loss when reaching those longer cable lengths.

What is LMR 400 cable used for?

LMR400 is a high quality 50 ohm coaxial cable product from the Times Microwave Corporation. It can be used for a variety of ham radio, CB, commercial and marine applications.

What is the braid for on coax cable?

Coaxial cables The earthed braid provides a barrier against EMI moving into and out of the coaxial cable. The central core and the outer sheath share the same axis, hence they are coaxial and the cable is referred to coaxial cable or more usually just ‘coax’ (see Figure 7.1).

How many watts can LMR400 handle?

Power Capacity (In watts 104 °F, 40 °C)
MHz: 30 220
LMR-400® 2100 830

What is LMR400 cable used for?

What is RG213 used for?

RG213 coaxial cable is suitable for use in VHF (Very High Frequency) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency) radio communications, data transmission, and broadcast applications. RG213 coax cable is also applicable as an antenna feed cable when low signal loss and high operating voltages are required.

What is RG214 cable used for?

RG214 coax cable’s Mil-Spec equivalent is M17/75-RG214. This coax cable is used in telecommunications, data transmission, radio frequency communication, broadcast, and computer applications.

What does LMR 400 stand for?

LMR-400. The number (400) represents the outside diameter measurement of the coax. Most coax cables in this class like RG-8 measures 0.400″. LMR-400 actually measures 0.405″ LMR-400 is designed as an upgrade from RG-8 type coaxes.

How thick is LMR 400?

10.29 mm
The LMR 400® is a 10.29 mm thick PE radio frequency cable.

Which is better the lmr400 or the rg213?

Typically, the larger the conductor, the lower the attenuation. Since LMR400 has a larger conductor than RG213, the conductor size accounts for RG213 experiencing more signal loss than LMR400.

What’s the difference between the LMR 240 and 400?

Even with a well-matched antenna, difference in loss between the 240 and 400 is probably 2 or 3 dB for your 65 or 70 feet of cable. Any of them will work fine for short-range signals.

What kind of coaxial cable is the lmr400?

LMR400 is a flexible low loss braided coaxial cable designed for use in low loss RF cables. The LMR400 features a solid bare copper-clad aluminum conductor, a PE jacket, and a double shield composed of an aluminum braid and braided tinned copper.

Which is better RG cable or LMR cable?

It looks like RG cable is much more expensive than LMR, but in my reading, it seemed that LMR had less loss than RG. I can’t seem to find much that compares the merits of RG versus LMR. The LMR uses a closed cell foam dielectric where the RG-213 and 214 uses a solid plastic. The LMR will be much lighter and have lower losses.
