Coaxial cables, sometimes referred to as coax cables, are a kind of electrical cord or cable commonly used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. Cables.com stocks an assortment of coax cables along with tools and accessories for use at home or in the office. 

Have you ever heard of coaxial or coax cables? If you've ever had a home entertainment system installed, odds are you've seen one of these commonplace electrical cables before. Even in this digital age, coax cables are often used by cable TV companies to connect their satellite antenna networks to your home or business. 

A coaxial cable is generally made up of an inner conductor, which is a copper core, contained within a dielectric insulator which is in turn encapsulated by a woven copper shield; all of this is then further protected by an outer plastic sheath. Though it can be considered a shielded cable, or a cable resistant to EMI or electromagnetic interference, the dimensions of the cable and connectors are controlled primarily for the precise conductor spacing it requires in order to act efficiently as a transmission line. 

Order Coaxial Cables at Cables.com

Cables.com stocks an assortment of coaxial cables along with the tools and accessories you might need in order to set up your own network. You can find coax cables in a variety of lengths and colors, like this 100ft long RG6 Coax Cable suitable for outdoor use and direct burial. It features an 18AWG solid conductor with 75 Ohm Impedance Polyethylene (PE) gel-filled jacket. Its F-type connector is CMX ETL Listed, and ROHS (Restrictive of Hazardous Substances Directive) Compliant.
