RS Pro RG178 Coaxial Cable

What is a Coaxial Cable?

A coaxial cable is a specific type of cable that is made up from copper combined with other metal shield materials and components to block signal interference. They include one physical channel to carry the surrounding signal, usually accompanied with a layer of insulation.

RS Pro RG178 Coaxial Cable

The RG178/U Coaxial Cables are traditionally used for interconnecting telecoms industry equipment and data. This interconnection is useful for facilitating the transmission of radio frequency signals.

Features and Benefits

• A coaxial communication cable, great for communicating!
• Meets the requirements of MIL-C-17F
• Brown FEP (Fluorinated ethylene propylene) outer sheath
• Stranded flexible inner conductor of 7/0.10mm
• Silver plated copper clad steel inner conductor with PTFE Insulation

Typical Applications

• Transmitting signals for televisions and areal connections
• Transmitting signals of CCTV images
• Transmitting signals for broadband
• Connect satellite antenna facilities to homes and businesses

How do Coaxial Cables work?

Coaxial cables work through having concentric layers of electrical conductors and insulating material. The way that they are constructed is what ensures that a signal is enclosed within the cable and prevents any electrical noise from interfering with the signal.
