RG6 Quad Shielded Plenum CMP Cable, 18 AWG CCS, AL Foil & 75% AL Wire Braid for Digital HDTV and CATV
Our RG6 Coaxial Cable is commonly used for wiring satellite, digital CATV and HDTV television networking since it requires higher level of shielding for signal retention. The RG6 coax cable has a denser jacketing and thicker conductor then RG59, so it can transfer data at double the speed. We supply RG6 quad shield and quad shield cable to maximize signal retention for even sharper, clearer digital pictures. The RG6 Coaxial Cable tops out at 75 Ohms and sweep tested at 3GHz.
Coaxial Cable is used to transmit radio frequency energy. The advantage of coaxial is that the electromagnetic field carrying the signal occurs only in the space between the inner and outer conductors. With that said, it allows the cable to be installed next to metal objects without power loss. Coaxial Cable also provides protection of the signal from external electromagnetic interference. Coaxial Cables connects radio transmitters and receivers to their antennas, computer network (Internet) connections, digital audio (S/PDIF), and distributing cable television signals. This makes RG6 cable an ideal solution for coax cable for internet usage.
Our high quality RG6 Shield Plenum Coaxial Cable consists of an 18 AWG solid Copper Clad Steel (CCS) inner conductor that transmits the signal. It is wrapped in a dielectric polyethylene insulation. This RG6 quad shielded plenum coaxial cable comes with 100% aluminum foil bonded and 75% aluminum wire braided shield. This is covered with a flame rated PVC jacket (CMP). Our cables are UL listed and RoHS Compliant.
Where to use Coaxial Cable
A broad range of applications exist for coaxial cabling. It is widely used with entertainment equipment such as Cable Television (CATV), Digital HDTV, Audio / Video, and Digital Satellite receivers in commercial settings such as schools and hospitals. It is also used with security cameras, and GPS Systems. Since this RG6 Plenum Coaxial Cable has a solid copper conductor it is the perfect cable choice for any CCTV transmission or surveillance system and helps eliminate signal loss.
A plenum space is the open area above the drop ceiling or below the floor that is used for air circulation in buildings. This could be a problem if there is ever a fire. Using non-plenum cables in a plenum space can spread fire and toxic smoke throughout a building. Plenum cable uses a flame-retardant jacket that is made of special plastics to prevent the release of harmful smoke. Plenum cable is mostly used in commercial applications such as schools and hospital buildings that house a large population of people. It also is required in most multi-floor business buildings with large plenum space areas.
