CB-174TPR-500 is a 500 foot (152.44 meter) roll of RG174 flexible (TPR jacket)
50 ohm stranded core cable.
50 ohm coax cable, connectors, and adapters are commonly used in GPS
and wifi (802.11 wireless LAN) antennas, ham transceivers, and other
radio frequency (RF) analog and digital signaling, microwave, radar,
hi-fidelity professional audio, non-destructive testing (NDT), oil and
petroleum production, ultrasonic transducers, accelerometers, strain
gauges, and some professional video applications.
This cable has a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) jacket (also known as
thermoplastic elastomer or TPE). This material is softer and more
flexible than a standard PVC cable jacket, even at low temperatures.
TPR is resistant to petroleum oils, many chemicals, ozone, and other
environmental contamination sources. TPR-jacketed cables weather well
and are abrasion-resistant. They are not cut-resistant or built to
withstand longitudinal tension, so should not be buried or used in
umbilical tether applications without additional protection.
You've likely seen TPR before -- it's the high-friction, rubbery
material used as the jacket for many test bench leads and patch
cables. The flexibility makes TPR-jacketed cables popular for use
with handheld sensors and probes; we see them used a lot with
ultrasonic contact transducers and eddy current probes. The
flexibility and small bend radius of these cables makes them ideal for
use with microphones, DF antennas, and other handheld or wearable
devices, in robotic or mechatronic remote control and telemetry,
automated or CNC machines, and precision motion control. Popular
outdoor uses include flightline, oil rig, pipeline inspection, arctic,
and other extreme environment applications where flexibility at low
temperature is important.
