MaxFlex cable is a flexible alternative to semi-rigid cable. With its 100% shield coverage, it provides equivalent performance to MIL-C-17 semi-rigid, but is as flexible as many MIL-C-17 flexible coaxial cables. Using MaxFlex cable, assemblies can be made to approximate overall length and installed into equipment without the tooling required for bending semi-rigid cable.
