LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, APRIL 8, 2013 — General Cable is pleased to debut the new Gepco® Brand VDM230LT Ultra-Lightweight, High-Definition Miniature Coax at the 2013 NAB Show (Booth #C7408) April 8 -11, 2013. Ideal for mobile production trucks or wherever weight and performance are critical, the new patent-pending VDM230LT Coax is 39 percent lighter than Gepco’s VDM230 miniature coax for an average savings of 2,000 pounds per full-size truck.
The new VDM230LT was designed for reliable transmission in broadcast applications and provides superior electrical performance across the entire 4.5 GHz bandwidth. Featuring a low loss gas-injected dielectric created with Gepco’s TactiCel™ Strong Cell Technology, VDM230LT provides improved crush resistance, high velocity of propagation, tight impedance tolerance, low structural return loss and exceptionally low attenuation. For reduced weight, the VDM230LT utilizes a precision-drawn, copper center conductor and a 100 percent bonded foil with a high-strength, ultra-lightweight liquid crystal polymer braid shielding.
The new VDM230LT provides equal or better performance compared to Gepco’s standard VDM230 coax while retaining the same dimensions as VDM230 so that it is compatible with the same connectors and crimp tools previously used for VDM230. For ease in color coding installations, VDM230LT is available in a wide array of colors.
“The VDM230LT is a revolutionary new cable that could change the face of mobile production,” said Joe Zajac, Sales and Applications Engineer for Gepco® Brand Products. “One just needs to consider the many potential weight savings advantages VDM230LT can provide, from easing the burden of truck weight restrictions to fuel savings or delivery costs. For mobile production or even permanent installation applications such as cable trays, VDM230LT provides a solution wherever weight savings is needed.”
