What is a low loss cable?

DB9 to AISG RET Control Cable



Low-loss and ultra-low-loss cables are coaxial cables with better shielding than standard RG coaxial cables, helping to achieve low attenuation losses at high frequencies. For critical applications, these LL/ULL cables outperform standard coaxial cables.



Advantages of Low Loss and Ultra Low Loss Cables


Low attenuation loss is the main advantage when selecting low-loss or ultra-low-loss cables. This is critical for microwave, military, WLAN, wireless, cellular, and medical applications. Another benefit of low-loss and ultra-low-loss types of cables are different physical or mechanical types, such as flexible, formable, or semi-rigid. Each physics type allows it to perform as desired in many different environments and applications.



Low Loss and Ultra Low Loss Cable Applications


Due to the low attenuation loss, low loss and ultra low loss cables are usually selected for but not limited to the following applications:






Radio Frequency (RF)








Cellular and wireless


Test and Measurement Equipment


Premier Cable is a leading supplier of custom and stock Low Loss (LL) and Ultra Low Loss (ULL) cables. Low-loss and ultra-low-loss cables are often used when standard coaxial cables cannot provide low distance attenuation losses.
