Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of cable, antenna and tower systems providing total-package solutions for wireless and broadcast infrastructure, recently announced the availability of CELLFLEX SecureFit RF Jumpers available with an exceptionally easy-to-install weatherproofing boot pre-assembled to the jumper. The cost-effective boot ensures watertight sealing in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of a sleek, close-fitting product design.
The innovative, patent-pending design includes a small drainage channel at the top of the boot to deter water pooling or moisture ingress. It allows for one-handed installation and improves connector longevity in high salinity environments, while protecting other equipment from corrosion and degeneration caused by the elements. The new boot is waterproof to IP 66/67/68 ratings to ensure watertight sealing, safeguard connectivity, and reduce potential downtime and associated costs. It also helps protect against other extreme weather conditions including wind-driven rain, freezing temperatures and UV exposure.
The RFS weatherproofing boot – which features a small footprint and compact design for multi-port equipment - can be installed and removed over 25 times to perform tap testing or disconnect equipment without deformation or decrease in weatherproofing functionality. It has been rigorously tested to ensure its high-strength silicone rubber material won’t rip or tear during installation or product placement.
“Our RF jumpers are best-in-class so we want to ensure that they have a weatherproofing boot that provides superior protection for our customers’ equipment investment with no added lead time when compared to standard jumpers,” said Eileen Januszkiewicz, regional product manager, RFS. “The new jumper design will facilitate the easiest installation possible, which we know is something our customers really value.”
The CELLFLEX SecureFit Jumpers with new weatherproofing boot are compliant to RoHS (EU) and CRoHS (China) standards for use on a global basis. The durable boot is compatible with the entire family of RFS 1/2” jumpers, regardless of cable type and the entire solution can be used universally for all 7-16, 4.1-9.5, 4.3-10 and N-Type connectors/ Remote Radio Heads (RRHs) on the market today.
