Continuing with its recent HELIAX® 2.0 cable family launch, Andrew,
the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless
communication systems and products, has introduced new and upgraded cable
accessories that each fulfills more installation requirements.
Andrew’s new SnapStak™
stackable snap-in hangers, Compact
Weathershield™ weatherproofing kits, Universal
SureGround™ grounding kits, and galvanized grounding
bars work with both HELIAX
aluminum and AVA
copper coaxial cables. The accessories can help wireless operators
increase their utilization of available tower and mounting space, reduce
installation times, and better protect network investments.
“The wireless market needs the utility of reducing the number of
individual products for which they have to account,” said Andrew’s Stan
Catey, group vice president, Cable Products and Towers. “By continuing
to integrate our HELIAX 2.0 cable product solutions into a rationalized,
comprehensive family, we can offer customers enhanced solutions that
accommodate whichever cable line they require.”
Operators with limited tower space will appreciate stacking either
aluminum or copper cables with Andrew’s SnapStak hangers in lieu of
expensive tower extension parts. The Compact Weathershield is 24 percent
smaller to fit multiport antennas and other small devices, and with a
new slide bar function, can reduce installation time significantly. The
Universal SureGround kits conveniently fit all smoothwall and corrugated
wireless cables within a nominal size range, while the galvanized
grounding bars provide an inconspicuous yet effective grounding buss
that will not attract copper thieves’ attentions.
Andrew’s new cable accessories follow the same dual-function as the
universal connectors, which also fit both HELIAX 2.0 aluminum and copper
coaxial cables. Andrew is the first transmission line supplier to offer
customers a complete solution for their RF transmission line needs. Both
HELIAX 2.0 cable types are available as feeders in a complete range of
diameters or as cable assemblies.
