Bulk OEM

Bulk OEM Cable

Our Bulk OEM Cables are lightweight and can reduce the weight of an aircraft by up to 200 pounds.

CAES FC-Z lightweight cable is typically 50% - and as much as 67% - lighter than MIL-DTL-17 RG cable and half the outside diameter. While smaller and lighter, CAES OEM cable assemblies feature lower insertion loss and higher reliability than heavy RG cable, yet is rugged, easy to terminate and reduces installation labor costs thanks to its superior flexibility and ease of installation.

Our cables are certified by the FAA to the requirements of FAR Part 25.1359 (d) Appendix F for flammability. It also meets military specifications of the U.S. and other governments and NATO.

High Performance Lightweight

High Performance Lightweight Cable Assemblies

The FA29RX assembly is a DC to 18 GHz, 0.31-inch diameter cable, operational at temperatures up to +200°C. The reduced weight version (FA31RXLW) uses a silver-plated, copper-clad aluminum center conductor and silver-plated aluminum shielding and exhibits a greater than 32% weight reduction with no performance loss.
