The quality of service a user experiences is only as strong
as the weakest link, therefore the quality and reliability of
fl y leads is as important as the other components of a cable
Attention to detail in the specification of the materials,
construction and performance characteristics ensures that
the customer experience is optimised from installation and
throughout a long service life. Precise dimensioning and the
outstanding resilience of the connectors and inner pins delivers
a very reliable connection. The connectors are tightly
secured and moulded to the cables to ensure good pull and
The cables’ inner conductors are soldered to their inner pins to
maintain excellent electrical and mechanical performance.
There are many external sources of electromagnetic radiation
present in the in home environment, including short wave radio,
mobile phones, DVB-T and others.
The screening effectiveness of a fly lead therefore needs to
mitigate the effects of both the egress and ingress of unwanted
signals. To meet these requirements, the RF specification of
the Technetix fly leads exhibits low insertion loss, high return
loss and exceeds Class A++ screening effectiveness over the
whole frequency range, using quadruple shielding with a mix of
braids and foils.
