In today’s electronic age, there are a great amount of wires that provide power and data transfer for the many electronic systems and appliances that we rely on. Coaxial cables are a special type of electrical cable that serve as transmission lines for high frequency electric signals. Coaxial cables consist of a conductor that is encapsulated in insulation, which in turn is covered by a conducting shield tube which may or may not have a jacket. There are various coaxial cable types, such as RG-59 and RG-6 cables, and each type provides data transfer such as cable television, broadband internet, radio antenna, telephone trunk lines, and more. Due to the important applications that these cables serve, care should be taken to install them correctly in your building, home, or structure.
