RF Cable Loss calculator | Formula for RF Cable Loss
This page covers RF Cable Loss calculator. The formula used in RF cable Loss calculator is also mentioned.
EXAMPLE of RF Cable Loss Calculator:
INPUTS: Frequency = 2500 MHz, K1 = 0.11694, K2 = 0.00036, CLF = 0.12, L = 150ft
OUTPUTS: RF Cable Loss = 6.93 dB/100ft, 10.4 dB/150 ft
Formula/Equation used in RF Cable Loss calculator
Following formula/equation is used in this RF cable loss calculator.
The cable Loss consists of conductor wire loss, insulation loss and connector loss. As mentioned in the equation, conductor loss (K1) relates to square root of frequency, insulation loss (K2) relates to frequency and connector loss relates to connectors used in the cable. Connectors can be either straight type or right angled type.
