Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of total-package solutions for wireless and broadcast infrastructure, has announced the availability of HYBRIFLEX riser cables that combine 12 pairs of 6 AWG, low-inductance DC power wires with 24 pairs of single-mode fiber with duplex LC connectors. RFS’ lightweight and highly flexible HYBRIFLEX cables are widely used to bring optical fiber and DC power to remote radio heads (RRHs). The new HYBRIFLEX 12×24 riser cables are available in 63 assemblies, ranging in length from 3 meters to 213 meters (10 feet to 700 feet), to meet almost any installation requirements.
Saving operators time and money
“As operators progress toward 5G, we know they need the ability to quickly, easily and cost effectively evolve their networks with innovative solutions such as our new HYBRIFLEX 12×24 riser cables,” says Matt Gauvin, RFS Global Product Line Manager, Cables. “To ensure operators have the cables they need, when they need them, we’ve made our HYBRIFLEX 12×24 cables available in a wide variety of lengths and with an expedited shipping program.”
To help operators save time and money, RFS’ HYBRIFLEX 12×24 riser cables use the same accessories as 1 5/8-inch coaxial cables and do not require expensive cable trays or ducts. The cables’ outstanding bending characteristics minimize installation time and complexity. Outer conductor grounding eliminates typical grounding requirements, further reducing installation time costs.

HYBRIFLEX cables are field-proven to deliver flexibility and strength
To date, more than 48,000 km (30,000 miles) of RFS’ HYBRIFLEX hybrid feeder cables have been installed in North American networks. HYBRIFLEX cables feature a corrugated aluminum armor that delivers best-in-class bending characteristics and a flame-retardant jacket for long-lasting cable protection. The low-inductance power wires help operators avoid the risk of voltage swings that could cause RRHs to power cycle.
HYBRIFLEX cables also deliver strong core retention force and are engineered to hold internal fiber and power lines in place with maximum force without damaging the core components. The cables go well beyond UL requirements to deliver core retention strength of approximately 10 times the cable weight. They are proven to remain weather- and corrosion-resistant in the field for years.
