Coaxial Cable Types

 RG58

This cable generally acts as a generic carrier for low-power signals and RF connections.


 RG8

Designed for carrying radio transmission signals. This cable is unable to carry pure video signals due to the design. 

 RG213

Used in military and commercial applications and used within heat sensitive environments. Some of the applications may be used in radio communications, high-performance electrical, data transmissions, broadcast and computer applications.


 RG59

Used primarily for cable TV connections and are commonly seen in order home and commercial installations. The cable has a thin diameter. Generally recommended for low bandwidth and low-frequency applications, such as analog video and CCTV installations.


 RG6

This cable is a heavier gauge with insulation and shielding tuned for high-bandwidth, high-frequency applications such as the internet, cable TV, satellite TV signals. 

 RG11

Designed for long runs and are generally not used for any in-house cases. Generally, this is also twice as thick as a standard coax cable. 



 M17 & RG Coaxial Cable

M17 and MIL-C-17 Coaxial Cable is part of Allied Wire and Cable’s extensive stock of Coaxial Cable. This military grade Coaxial Cables are designed for the transmission of high-frequency signals with a minimum of loss.M17/RG Cables meet all MIL-C-17 requirements and provide good shielding effectiveness. They are low PIM, use standard connectors, and are readily available through distribution.

 RF coaxial cable

RF coax is defined by three elements consisting of a center conductor, an outer conductor, and an insulating spacer between the two conductors. Coaxial cables use a center conductor to transmit electrical signals, generally comprised of single solid copper wire.
RF coaxial cables used to carry radio frequency signals. They’re the standard input cable on TVs and feature a single pin that plugs into the RF input on a device.

 Semi-Rigid Coaxial Cable

Semi-rigid coaxial cable makes use of a solid copper outer sheath with a dielectric of PTFE. The copper sheath generally provides superior shielding effectiveness and dielectric properties. Semi-rigid coaxial cables offer better dielectric properties for enhanced performance at high frequencies. While offering higher shielding performance, this coax is also less flexible and therefore requires fixturing to achieve complex routing bends.

 Semi-Flexible Coaxial Cable

Semi-flexible coaxial cable is a corrugated cable with LowLoss property which is mostly used in the transmission of transmission power to the antennas. Due to the corrugated copper sheath, the cable is recommended only for fixed installation and not for continuous movement. 

A typical design for semi-flexible coaxial cable utilizes a metal inner conductor surrounded by a flexible polymer that functions as the dielectric, with an outer jacket for protection from the environment. This is surprising with a semi-flexible coaxial cable with technically first-class values and low losses.

 TV Coaxial Cable

You can use the TV coaxial cables to connect TVs, satellite dishes and VCRs, and current RF aerials. The coax cables come either as male to male connectors or male to female connectors. You should check out the type of connections your TV and cable boxes have to decide which one you need.

Generally, TV coaxial cables will have an impedance of 75-ohm for better signal transmission. The connectors are gold plated or silver plated in a bid to improve the quality of transmission. The length of the cables is usually short and you the regular TV coaxial cables are 10 meters long.
