For wireless infrastructure installations requiring DC power for “up the tower” and “in the building” applications, RF Industries now provides outdoor and indoor multi-conductor composite power cables in standard and custom configurations.
Available outdoor DC power cables run power up the tower to support Fiber-to-the-Antenna (FTTA) applications. RF Industries manufactures standard configurations that include 2 conductor 8 gauge, 2 conductor 10 gauge, 2 conductor 12 gauge and 6 conductor 8 gauge insulated tinned copper wires rated for 600 volts. All cables include tinned copper braid and aluminum tape shield with a drain wire. The cables are UL Type TC (Tray Cable) approved with PVC jacket that are sunlight resistant and are approved for direct burial applications.

Available indoor DC power cables, branded TelcoFlex III by Southwire, are the industry standard when it comes to indoor DC power cabling. Cable is available from 2/0 to 10 AWG wire size with gray cloth jacket to meet most indoor wireless (iDAS) applications. Black, blue, green and red jacket colors are also available.
Cables may be purchased by the foot or in bulk reels in standard or custom configurations.
