What are Coaxial Cables used for?

RF coaxial cables are 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.

Here are some of the different uses for coaxial cable


Coaxial cable for TV


C091 Series AISG Circular Connector

Poor quality coaxial cables can affect TV reception, so it's important to choose the best cable for the job.


Coaxial cables designed for home TVs should be 75 ohms, and RG-6 coaxial cables are best for TVs.



Coaxial cable for HDTV (High Definition)


The best coaxial cable for HDTV is RG-11.


This type of cable has a higher gauge than other cables, allowing more room for signal transmission. This makes RG-11 cables good at transmitting strong HD signals quickly.



Coaxial cable for internet


Coaxial cables can be used to carry internet connection signals, but internet signals run at a higher frequency than traditional analog video.


RG-6 cables are designed to meet this requirement. It has larger conductors for better signal quality and a thicker dielectric insulator. RG-6 cables are also made with a different type of shielding, which means they can transmit GHz-level signals more efficiently.



Coaxial cable for CCTV


RG-59 coaxial cable is the best type for CCTV systems, but RG-6 can also be used.

RG-6 can travel greater distances than RG-59 without loss of video signal, but it's a thicker, stronger cable that's less convenient to use.



Video coaxial cable


The most common types of video coaxial cable are RG-59 and RG-6. Among them, RG-59 is the industry standard cable, while RG-6 is more suitable for digital video signals.
