What is coaxial cable and how is it used?

Date:2019/8/28 16:02:36 Hits:

Coaxial cable is commonly used by cable operators, telephone companies, and internet providers around the world to convey data, video, and voice communications to customers.It has also been used extensively within homes.

It has been around for a long time as a technology (since the early 20th century) and has many singular advantages for reliable, accurate transmission.

It also has limitations that will cause it to be replaced in some cases by fiber optic cable, category cable or, sometimes, by wireless signals.

The key to the coaxial cable's success has been its shielded design, which allows the cable's copper core to transmit data quickly, without succumbing to interference or damage from environment factors.

The three most common cable sizes are RG-6, RG-11 and RG-59:

* RG stands for "radio guide." The numbers of the various versions of RG cable refer to the diameter (59 meaning .059, and 6 meaning .06, etc.). They are also called RF cables, which stands for "radio frequency".
* Most non-industrial coax is now known as RG-6, but installers may use a thicker cable, like RG-11.
* RG cables used in homes should be 75 ohm impedance.

Most connectors are F-style connectors, but it is possible your system uses N-type connectors. There are several types of F-type connectors for RG-6 cables:

* Compression connectors
* Screw-on connectors
* Crimp-style connectors

In order to make a connection, you will need a male and a female connector of the same type. Male connectors have the center wire sticking out, while female connectors have a space for the center wire to stick into.

Be aware that coax cables sometimes have signal leakage known as ingress or egress. This causes tiling, fuzzy or snowy signals.

What is coaxial cable?

Coaxial cable is a type of cable that has an inner conductor surrounded by an insulating layer, surrounded by a conductive shielding. Many also have an insulating outer jacket The diagram below illustrates the construction of a typical cable. Electrical signal flows through the center conductor. 

1. Center conductor - copper-clad steel.

2. Center conductor bond - clean stripping polymer is utilized to block moisture migration.

3. Dielectric - polyethylene providing mechanically stable, closed cell foam with high VP.

4. First outer conductor - shield with an aluminum-polymeraluminum tape securely bonded to the dielectric core.

5. Second outer conductor - an additional aluminum-polymer-aluminum tape is used in tri-shield and quad-shield constructions to further enhance HF shield isolation before and after flexure.

6. Third outer conductor - an additional aluminum-polymer-aluminum tape is used in tri-shield and quad-shield constructions to further enhance HF shield isolation before and after flexure.

7. Fourth outer conductor - an additional 34 or 36 AWG aluminum braid is used in quad-shield constructions to further improve LF shield isolation in extreme RF noise environments.

8. Corrosion resistant protectant
   * Indoor and aerial - a non-drip material designed to eliminate moisture migration into the cable construction.
   * Underground - a flowing compound able to seal small jacket ruptures.

9. Jacket - a UV stable outer jacket of either polyethylene (PE) or flame retardant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is available to protect the core during installation and for the installed life of the cable.

10. Integral messenger - a galvanized, carbon steel wire support member attached to the cable by a separable web.
