Best Feature of CCA used in coaxial cable(part two)


In the case of 5MHz, the current flow in the near surface of about 0.025 mm in thickness, and the thickness of the copper copper clad aluminum conductor than the thickness of about one times. For coaxial cable, because the transmission of the signal is above 5MHz, so the copper clad aluminum conductor and copper conductor transmission effect is the same. In actual tests, the attenuation of the cable can prove this. Copper clad aluminum copper conductors is soft, easy in the production process of straightening treatment, so to a certain extent by cable than copper clad aluminum cable with copper conductor return loss index.

Economy. Copper clad aluminum conductor is sold by weight, the copper conductor is sold by weight, copper clad aluminum conductor than the price of the same weight of some expensive copper conductor. But the same weight of copper clad aluminum than copper conductor length, and is calculated according to the length of cable. The same weight, copper wire is 2.5 times the length of the wire, the price is just a few hundred dollars per ton. Integrated down, they have the advantages of copper clad aluminum. Because of the copper clad aluminum cable is light, cable transportation costs, installation costs will be reduced, will bring convenience to construction.
